We had a class Saturday to make-up for missed classes in Neuroscience and Clinical Pathology. I got up late and ended only sitting in on Dr. P's lecture on the Thyroid. He was supposed to lecture us on Serum Special Proteins but he saved Tuesday's lecture instead. Haha. Tumatanda na si Docky. Haha.
Anyway. Class ended early at 11:35am. Jarnel and I were to study at Googley Bear's apartment to spend our time wisely but she forgot to bring her Surgery book and she decided not to go through our academic plans. Studying without Jarnel just wasn't the same. Without her usual weird antics, GB and I fell asleep as soon as we were done with our lunch. Yeah, you call that the Baboy Syndrome. I woke up at 3:45pm. GB was still asleep so I left for home without waking him up. The hour-long ride home was plain boring (that's the reason I always ride the jeepney with perky Jarnel). I didn't have nothing to do whilst on the jeep so I decided to take hpotos of Davao and make it into one picture-filled entry. So here goes.
This is GB sleeping. Hahahaha. It was a shame to disturb him in his slumber.
Entrance to China Town...

Await ko parati ang pag-traffic sa San Pedro Street dahil sa K-World.

Paakyat ang daan. Pag kaskasero yung mamang driver dito,
