Woke up early morn scampering to find all the knickknacks that once filled up my backpack. I emptied it since March early this year and retired it into a forgotten corner of the house. The quarantine’s end wasn’t in sight, after all. All the things that I think I might need when in the office were all lined up on my desk — they are the following:
- water tumbler
- coffee tumbler
- laptop computer
- notebook and pen
- battery pack
- digital pouch
- toiletry pouch
The bag? Yes, it’s nowhere to be found. I was about to check a mountain of luggage one by one and thankfully, Jaycelle was half-awake to tell me that it might be in a box full of bags. There it was, my old army green friend.
Pasok, day 1
Our chapter was having a retrospective and goal-setting for the coming year. It was my first day at the office having a work-related agenda. Been there twice before — first, during the job interview and second, when I took home a free office chair.
Numerous virtual meetings and bilas (bilateral meetings) made me feel comfortable around them — Minco (managing director) and Karren (chapter lead). I think I’ll feel the same way when I meet the UX design team themselves (and I’m looking forward to that).

Here are some photos on my way from Mandaluyong City to Ayala Ave.
