Christmas 2013

We decided to go to Cebu and spend Christmas this year with my parents and brother. I suppose it has been more than 15 years since we last celebrated Christmas together. The trip was really stressful because it was passenger season. But it was really worth lugging heavy bags since the cousins got to goof off and have a lot of fun, and the grandparents got to see all of their grandchildren in one place.

I've included most of the pictures I've taken with my phone in the gallery below. The first few ones are some of the auto-awesomed pics generated by Google.

After having seen these in one place, I now wish I took more burst shots, especially the ones with Papa and Mama. I guess they'll have to be content with the non-animated regular pictures.

For the first couple of weeks, I thought I was going to do 4 hours a day at most, and turn up the heat bit by bit until I'm able to do 100% again. But I suppose having to rest over a month does have its toll. It took significant effort to try not go all in with guns blazing on the first day back at work. LOL Anyway, I'm trying something new this year. We've migrated our applications to a better platform, and we'd like to push that to the cloud this year. It'll obviously need a lot of liaising and cooperative work with other teams and domains so I'm going to do more engagement and solutioning than the usual engineering this time. Last week, we did a platform-related hackathon and a critical refresh across clusters. There's going to be a lo

I can see myself dealing with all the ladies who will be tweeting, texting, and calling Miguel some years from now..
