Day 158 - June 8, 2010
Found these glasses nicely lined up on the shelf at the place we dined at tonight.
Although they were never used over the course of the dinner, they best represent what today was all about: catching up and spending quality time with good friends.
I'm talking about friends from the Asian Center of Journalism of which I am a fellow and an alumnus. The Master's Program I was a part of included journalists from all over Asia, and some of them gathered together in Manila this week to attend a leaders forum.
During my time at the Center I met some of my closest friends in the whole world but because I've been so focused on work, it never really occured to me that they were coming over.
Last night when I showed up for a reception dinner I got the most awesome surprise I've received in a long time when I turned around and saw the best friends in person. I've said my goodbyes already, but I still can't get over this happy feeling. I guess that's what real friendship is all about.
