This weekend has been a good one. Although I did not get to accomplish some of the things I had to do for work but I think I really needed a break.
I spent Saturday morning watching some tv shows I haven’t seen. I caught up on the latest season of “The O.C.”. At first I never thought I’d like this show but having seen the first season last year, I got hooked somehow. This season seems to be interesting. I also watched the latest episode of “Grey’s Anatomy”. Seriously, this is one of the best shows on air today. The writing is great. It’s on its third season and I’m still as interested if not more since the first time I watched it. In contrast with Desperate Housewives. I liked it at first but now, not so much.. Don’t know why. I just stopped watching it.
In the afternoon I ended up watching the World Pool Championships’ Quarter Finals and Semi Finals. Our very own Ronato Alcano powered through to make it to the finals.
I really wanted to get out of the house so I asked my friend Nes if he wanted to go out in the evening. He said they had a GK meeting in the afternoon but for me to join them for dinner afterwards. I said sure. I met them at Old Spaghetti House in Makati. I joined him and the other members of the GK Committee of our SFC chapter. We had dinner and set up an impromptu poker game at Ton’s house after. They had called some of our friends and asked if they wanted to play poker. So we did.
Now I’m not really a poker player. I played it several times in the past but it was the company I was after. We played poker till about 1:30 a.m. at which I decided to call it a night. I went home ahead of them and I found out today that they played till 3 a.m.
Sunday was another lazy day. I spent a the morning and a good part of the afternoon chatting with some friends. Carlo and I made a “video”:http://www.theaftermac.com/macbook-pros-isight-plus-one/ to test out his Macbook Pro and an external iSight. Suffice to say we had nothing better to do and that’s why we did that.
I also chatted a bit with Eleanor. I had a very interesting conversation with her.
The rest of the afternoon was spent watching the finals of the World Pool Championships and I’m happy to say that Ronato Alcano brought pride to the Philippines by bagging the championship in an exciting match. He shot a 1 and 9 ball combination to win the tournament.
The highlight of my weekend was going to mass with my whole family. We finally after a long time were able to hear mass together. I usually didn’t go to the 8 p.m. evening mass because it was easier for me to go to an 11 a.m. mass in the club in front of our house. However this time I thought that I really wanted to hear mass with my mom, brother and dad at the 8 p.m mass in the church near our house. My dad serves at that mass and that’s why he doesn’t go to the 11 a.m. mass. My brother also hears mass with his girlfriend usually on Saturday evenings so he sometimes doesn’t go to the 11 a.m. or 8 p.m mass. Tonight we all went together.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been to that church. I was surprised to see that they installed air conditioners and sealed of the church. I’m sure this will be really handy during summer.
I prayed for several people. My family and friends who needed prayers. I hope that God hears my prayers for them and grant what’s best for all.
I guess it’s not really an exciting weekend compared to other people’s weekends but It was really nice for me.
