Good jab? Maybe.

Sundate with friends

The lead image is the dog of my friend that she brought along with her when we decided to go for sunrise viewing last Sunday. However, it was an overcast morning and no sun appeared. We watched as the day becomes brighter by the minute but the sun decided to just hide behind the clouds.

We then decided to go for a breakfast somewhere. I saw these cookies displayed at the restaurant that we went to. It was very tempting to buy some.

When we were done eating, we again decided to go for coffee at a friend's cafe. She was so kind to entertain us even though it was really early and they are busy for they have orders that day that needs to be done and delivered. They don't open until noon but we were there around 7 a.m. It was very windy and cold that time but it slowly got warmer and the wind stopped blowing as the day progressed.

This is the view from the cafe. Beyond you can see South China Sea. Given the right time, this is a great place for sunset and sunrise.

Time surely flies when you are enjoying.

Monday Jab

This photo was taken at the observation area right after being vaccinated. These personnel (I'm not sure if they are in the medical field or not) will input your QR code and update your vaccine status on the website. I think.

Good thing I decided to go out earlier yesterday to have get my vaccine. I was deciding either 10 a.m. or noon because during my first vaccine, it took less than 30 minutes for everything to be done. I was expecting the same.

To my horror, when I got to the site, the seats are full and the line is so long that it reached the fourth floor of the building nearby. We had to line up along the corridors and stairs of the building. This time it took more than two hours -standing in line for more than an hour and on the sitting area for more than an hour.

There were three guys who cut the line in front of us but they seem to be friends with the ladies in line. I wanted to call them out but I'd rather let the universe do it's wonders. What's important is they are vaccinated.

What happened was the city decided to put almost all second dose receivers in one center. That's why I'm thankful that I went there earlier. If I got there later, the waiting would have been in vain.

Good thing also that I brought a jacket with me. While it does get hot when you are out under the sun, staying under the shade is cold. Plus the sitting area is open space and the cold wind blows.

The lady who took my information at the prescreening area did not take my BP, just my QR then told me to go sit and wait where I will be vaccinated together with other people with the same brand as mine. When I was done, I headed to the observation area.

The lady who took my QR code told me to download the updated QR code from the website and then told me nothing else. So I thanked her and left the site quickly.

Too bad for those who were still in line and were still waiting for they were told to come back the next day.

During my first vaccine, I was assigned to a doctor after my vaccination and he informed me of the symptoms and what to expect. He even took my BP and told me it was high. Now I don't know what's the status of my BP.

Before going home, I dropped by the shop of my former employer and talked to them a bit. Months ago, their son, his brother-in-law and the van he was driving were missing. They found the van somewhere far from civilization. According to my former lady boss, the police suspect that they were being held in a jail somewhere that some higher ups don't want to disclose. There were rumors about drug related which will involve people in high positions if the brother-in-law will talk. My bosses' son was just an accessory for he was asked by the brother-in-law to drive the van. The son was told by the in-law that they will just buy car parts somewhere in Manila.

I wanted to stay longer but I can already feel the effect of the vaccine so I bade my goodbye.

When I got home, I was able to do some tasks before finally giving up and slept it off.

I was supposed to write about Larry Itliong for October 25 is Larry Itliong day in California. Who is he exactly? He was a Filipino-America who led a strike against farmers particularly grape growers known as the Delano grape strike in the 1960s-1970s. He wanted to have better wages for the laborers. He also built retirement facilities for farm workers as well.

I just came across his name when I saw an article about him. During those times it was the Mexicans who were more popular but there were also Filipinos there and one of them was Larry Itliong.

You can read more about him here.
