Small coincidence throughout the weekend took place in the form of samosas. Last friday, we held a potluck for a departing friend and one of the dishes that we laid out was a towering load of samosas. Due to an abundance of food, we never got to try it, and our host made me bring some to the dive trip I was leaving for that evening. I then forgot all about the food until the next morning, finding the sodden bag in the trunk of the car. Oh dear. Tossed it into the fridge with the intention of reheating it for dinner, but that never took place either. For all intents and purposes, it may still be in that refrigerator. Sunday afternoon, at a friend's gathering, they served - samosas. I conceded the fight and graciously had one.
While the dive weekend quickly turned into a lazy one, a gentle memory was the lovely evening we spent watching the moon's reflection on the water. It had been so cloudy during the afternoon, the sun had no place to set. But the moon broke free from the clouds and we were in awe over its seductive glory that night.
And back here in Manila, I broke my vow not to buy a book, and ended up at Buy the Book at Waltermart, Makati. Hauled 7 new books back to work. Lordy lordy lordy
