Yesterday, on the way to Manila, an emergency came up concerning the health of a passenger. I was able to set foot in Naha International Airport in Okinawa because it was the nearest suitable airfield on the way as the captain had decided. Minutes later, another airliner diverted to this airport because of a similar reason.

This was taken at dawn, almost sunrise, where the scent of morning salty air filled the place with only little sleep that night. Hahaha!

Sleeping Quarters

The other other day, I got a chance to check out the sleeping quarters at the office. Nothing special. I just think that it's cool like you're on a boat or something. At the barracks or in a submarine perhaps...

Los Angeles Reunions

This week was a time for family, friends and guitars. I was blessed to have been able to go to LA and catch up on things. Last Tuesday, Mark, an old friend, took me to the Guitar Center and the area in Hollywood after grabing some burgers at an In N Out fastfood place -which he claims to be the "epitome of LA". Haha! I've never seen hundreds of guitars in a place all at the same time! The picture on the right is Mark with his lovely wife, Myra. We had to pass by his place because he wasn't able to finish my MP3 requests.

This one I'll call "Guitar Brothers". Hahaha! Anyway, the next day, my cousin, Noel, together with his wife and two of his daughters dropped by at the hotel where I stayed. Now, that was really a pleasant reunion. Aside from the usual "how's the family" chat, I was able to learn a bit about my dad because they used to visit my dad whenever he's in LA.

All in all, the week was a blast. Thank you, Lord!!!
