Happy Easter and I Think It's My Birthday

 Hi Reese

The renovations of the bathroom and the kitchen continues through the
holy week. M Roger is making sure the wall plaster is smooth. He finished
putting the black marble tiles on the tabletop. He's going to put the doors
to the bathroom tomorrow. It's Easter, no work. Oh by the way, it's my 
birthday too, I think. 

I woke up with the Salubong passing the house. I could hear the band 
playing a march. The siren is wailing. When I got downstairs mom is washing
clothes and Imee is preparing pasta for the spaghetti. 

I've been tinkering with my phone's lock screen security. There was a point
when I couldn't open the screen anymore. I had to ask for help with a 'forgotten
password' issue. They asked for my google authentication credentials then google
sends me a code through sms. My sms app is locked too. I can't get to the code. 

The smartphone is a remarkable technology. What if a machine can handle millions 
of calculations per second and store pictures, documents and everything else that
can be reduced to zeros and ones, share information with other machines, and last 
but not the least, be portable enough so you can put it in your pocket. What's more
remarkable is I get to live long enough to see it for real.

Quite unexpectedly
A thing of beauty
Appears on a warm afternoon.
