My weekend: series of meetings, explorations and a must-read book

The thing with PR is that you are always on-call, especially if there’s an event looming in the horizon. So, don’t be so sure about your weekends: you could be spending one breezy Friday afternoon attending a product training for one of your clients (one of the biggest consumer products in the market today).

After being named the new person-in-charge last week, I am literally quaking in my undies now, trying to understand the things I must digest in barely a week. I have to take care of this account as I’ve heard it’s earning the agency mondo big bucks, and I was warned early on by the MD that I am not ALLOWED to f*ck their relationship with this account.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand–so, I spent the rest of the afternoon holed up in the product training, trying to conceal my excitement with their new products. It was the 25thyear of the EDSA revolution, and I was still scheduled to meet with another company (to tap them as one of the (sponsors), so after the product training–the writer and I stayed at this place, while waiting for the media contact:

In other news, I finally found this after a long search on local book stores:

  1. Seriously? You’ve only seen Norwegian Wood this weekend? I don’t want to sound all high and mighty kapatid…it’s just that I’ve been seeing it for a few years now–I remember I wanted to get it for Ava for xmas a few years back but I wasn’t sure if she already had it. Sana I knew you were looking for it para I could’ve gotten it for you. The cover that I saw was black and white though, not this one. =)

    Oh and in other Nihon related news, Ava & I had lunch with our other friend Mae at Shangrila last saturday (yes, before heading to the SuJu concert!) and there was a Nihonggo Festival at the Shang!
