I was swamped with work the entire month of April. Actually, I was crazy busy in the office even before that time. We were handling five big events and my officemates and I were really having a hard time managing our time. Like it was beyond-what-our-human-bodies-could-take kind of thing already. There was just so much to do with so little time and energy from our part. We prepared early but it seemed all our preparations weren’t enough. After publishing my first weekend story for the month, I couldn’t get myself to publish the next ones so I decided to just publish them all in one go today. Yes, only today when I’m as free as a bird again, work wise.
Of our five events, the biggest was the 30th ASEAN Summit Gala Dinner which happened last April 29, a Saturday, at the Grand Ballroom of Sofitel Philippine Plaza in Pasay City. This was what ate up most of my time. I literally couldn’t sleep just thinking of what I was supposed to do for this event. Thank God it turned out to be a success. (God is really good all the time.) We even got to sit down inside the venue and witness everything from start to finish. We still have another big event in November but for now, I’ll sit back, relax, and cherish this momentary freedom I’m having. Haha.
Here are some photos from that crazy busy but very productive and triumphant weekend:
