@ the Church

Went for mass yesterday at Ghala Church. I still have to get used to weekends being on Thursday and Friday and not our traditional Saturday-Sunday. Saturday-Sunday seems so much weekendlike! Anyway, Ghala church has been the place we have gone to for years and it is still the same as it was. Mass was good, …

Finally went out shopping yesterday. Dad does most of his shopping at this new supermarket called Lulu. The location is on top of a hill and the place is so well lit up that you can see it from all around. I was rather impressed by the entire layout and this place has about 10 …
