Club-Hopping at JPhil TMC as Guest Evaluator

It was my first time to visit the JPhil Toastmasters Club today at the Madrigal Business Park in Alabang. Finally!

Upon Pres. Abelle's invitation way back when we first met at Metro South Alabang in 2018, I've been wanting to visit the club. But with Area Director duties for my 5 area clubs and a club I was mentoring, I didn't find the time.

Attending in today's lunch meeting were: (L-R) Genesis Isidro, Leslie Ann Moreno-Marcelino, Abelle Cruz, Ken, Eds Castillo and me.

Delivery of DTM Pin in the Mail (Post Office)

Alright. After I received the DTM Badge in the mail last May 3, 2019, I have been awaiting, with bated breath, the DTM Pin.

Well, today, something arrived. No, not the pin, but a claim stub from the postman. Yeah, apparently, this time around, I needed to personally (or through a representative) go to the post office and pay Php 112 to claim a parcel. Shown below is the parcel.

Delivery of DTM Badge in the Mail

Today, I received a package from a courier guy. The dogs were barking and as I looked out, the guy was wedging a package on the gate grills and soon left.

I was surprised that he didn't even wait for someone to retrieve it. When I held it, the package was very lightweight, like it didn't have anything inside. Here's the package.
