Her name is Note. Note, as in “Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do”.

She’s from Thailand and a good friend of my cousin Marj. Took her to see Tagaytay today – a far cry from my initial plan to stay at home for my day-off. Nonetheless, I always enjoy playing the tour guide. Throughout the road trip, I kept on telling her two things: (1) How much I love the sound of her language and  (2) that her country has always been part of my travel bucket list. For the latter, she told me that she’d be more than happy to be my gracious host once I go there.

All I can say is, if today’s an indicator of how spontaneous the rest of the year will go, then bring it on.

2012 will be all about seeing new places. 😉
