Still, the cost of losing audiences for all those days of rain and flood must be steep, not to mention paying for previously booked and now re-booked venues (for any additional performances) and renegotiating with the performers for substitute shows.
All the more reason, then, to support our theater companies as well, and the best way to do that is to go watch their shows.
I've managed to grab a couple more prizes for the blogging contest we're having. Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol now slides to fifth place, with new prizes of bigger monetary value now added to the mix. Here goes:

Third prize: A sleek, sturdy, top-of-the-line mountain backpack courtesy of Thai Airways.
Fourth prize: Gift certificates worth P3,000 from the Filipino casual resto-bar and art gallery Botong's Up, located at the new A. Venue Mall along Makati Avenue, Makati City.
