new year at alunan avenue

Ms Grace, her daughter, and the New Year crashers


KORONADAL CITY, SOUTH COTABATO—I never thought being “homeless” could be so cool. Royal, Rolly and I spent New Year ’s Eve loitering along Alunan Avenue, one of the busier streets here.
At about 11 pm, we dropped by Matchbox, a fast food stall just several meters away from the roundball. The place was no longer serving food, but Miss Grace, the affable owner, treated us to sumptuous servings of oyster valenciana, beef mushroom, and shrimp salad.
Before long, we were having slow rounds of Red Horse (still on the house!) as Bob Marley crooned “No woman, no cry” in the karaoke and splendid fireworks illuminated the night sky.
Greeting the New year couldn’t be this languorously fun.

I and Royal forcibly took 2/3 of Rolly's three-piece tribal bracelet
