Alan and I are watching Juday and Piolo’s “Don’t Give up on us” — and we’re both typing away on our laptop. I’m thinking of Manila again — trying to imagine how the week has begun for my friends and family there, 12 hours ahead. It’s almost lunch time. People are probably thinking about where they will go for lunch. Or what time they’re going to heat up their food..what’s in the cafeteria or what they’re serving up at the JollyJeep out by the parking lot.
