Makati Grand Parade 2010

Friday, June 11, was a really long and tiring day. It was slow for the rest in the office because they were busy preparing for the parade.

We decided to walk to Ayala Avenue because we doubted any cab would take us with the traffic the parade would cause. Luckily, Liza saw a staffer from the Urban Development Department with a government car so he drove us to the fire station where the parade would start. 🙂 We sneaked away from the employees before anyone we know saw us. Being a watcher is better than being walking in the parade. 😛

From the Education Department — Why does the student look like a granny
(or just someone with white hair)? LOL

The parade was taking forever because they kept stopping especially when the contestants of Miss Earth passed by.

Jaja received a text that our boss was in one of the e-jeepneys and there she was…

I’m glad I don’t look very fat here. XDDD;


I hope to be able to ride one of those quiet e-jeepneys before I leave the office. 😀 *crosses fingers*

Bagong Ina Foundation


Bagong Ina Foundation was probably the last in the parade, so we headed off to the stage.

Lotsa shredded paper around the stage


We changed our mind about going to the stage when we saw the crowd. We went to Starbucks instead because that’s where two of our other officemates were.

Many people took part in the parade which made it a blast. The weather even cooperated. Only the parade wasn’t as grand as expected. The rest of the pictures from the event are uploaded here.
