North to South Weekend

In January 18, we went to Nueva Ecija with Wayne, Celine, Mama Chelle, Amit, Josh, Jona and I went to Nueva Ecija for the first event of GDG Philipines, Nueva Ecija Technologies @ Work: Student Developers Day. It was organized by AIE Gapan and was held at SM Cinema 2 of Waltermart Gapan.

We had talks about Innovations @ Google, Google Apps for Education, Google Maps and Map Maker, Game Development, and HTML5. I also did a talk about the basics of Android apps development. After the event, we dropped by the AIE Gapan Campus and had a quick tour there. We then went to Luz Kitchenette for dinner before going back home.

The next day, Celine, Mama Chelle, Amit, Josh, Jona and I travelled to Tagaytay. It was pretty cold up there and the wind was blowing hard. We went to People's Park in the Sky and then to Starbucks. Our last stop there was in Rowena's to buy food for pasalubong. We went back to Manila to go to the National Museum before Amit's flight.

The entrance fee to the National Museum is free that day because it was a Sunday. There were some parts that are being renovated but we did manage to see a lot of things. It was my first time to visit there and it was a great experience. We then went to Intramuros and had lunch at Coco Bango Cafe. Afterwards, we went to the San Agustin Church. There was a wedding ongoing then. We also went inside the museum. We then went to Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 for Amit's flight.

We attended the mass in Mary Mother of Hope Chapel at Landmark Makati. After, we met up with friends to watch movie at Glorietta. Then, we had dinner at Max's Glorietta. It was a pretty long weekend. And the year is just starting… We'll have a lot of busy weekends soon.
