So, as Typhoon Ferdie made people choose to stay indoors, our tribe braved the rains to rediscover Luneta Park. Not as a school Field Trip, not as a Business activity for visiting colleagues, but as a Sunday adventure for the tribe. The rains stopped for a while when we got to the almost empty park, long enough for us to get settled at a park bench to enjoy our spaghetti and fried chicken picnic lunch. Of course, the lunch drew park "inhabitants" who helped make sure we didn't go home with too much leftovers.

Despite it being a wet Sunday, the day's jaunt made me feel I had been able to instill a renewed love for country in my young tribesmen, in a simple, fun way that I hope they will not forget for a long, long time.
Definitely, Typhoon Ferdie did not succeed in raining on our parade that Sunday.
