I dropped by Jorge's office on his request that we discuss the shirts we will be distributing in the December reunion. He even insisted that I have lunch at their office (everyone in their office insists that I eat whenever they see me). His wife, Sheila, was there studying and waiting for the time before she goes to school (she's studying law in Manila). The first hour everybody was real busy doing their stuff and making calls so I made myself scarce by eating the lunch they served me in the conference room. It was little after two when Sheila left to go to school, Joel left the office to go somewhere and Jorge finished his phonecall. We got to discuss the what to do with the shirt and stuff that the supplier was proposing (P190.00 /shirt). We jumped around to other topics and his face lit up when I asked him about his badminton history (apparently while everyone's getting badminton crazy nowadays, he started with the sport at the age of 8). He also told me that he was also into soccer aside from playing basketball. I almost lost track of time and what was supposed to be a short visit lasting an hour stretched out to four hours of talking. It was all good. Kinda missed all these times of talks and hanging out.
