The dinner sponsored by Philippines, Inc. in celebration of the appointment of Babe Romualdez as the new Philippine Ambassador to the USA was set at 7 pm but I arrived at 8:45 pm. Grabe I left our house at 6 pm, the traffic was almost at a standstill along EDSA. I wanted to turn around and go back home but I was stuck in the middle of EDSA. My colleagues didn’t believe when I told me it took me almost 3 hours to get there.
The party venue was the sprawling residence of Noel Onate in Makati.
Tonyboy Cojuangco stuck to his diet of eating only once a day every 4 pm. He wants his weight to go down to 185 lbs. He’s 200 now. He didn’t touch any of the food, bilib ako sa control nya. I just saw him drinking champagne.
Beybing-baby pa sya. Nakakaawa. Wala pa syang kamuang-muang. We should not kill baby pigs. The sight of this bab y pig brought back vivid memories of my father who had a piggery in Wawa, Binangonan, Rizal. I witnessed how he cared for the pigs, big and small. When a mommy pig gave birth, my papa took extra care of the babies, lovingly nursing them with milk from a bottle. I’ve seen him carry the piglets very carefully.
