i had to finish my work in dagupan over the weekend ...doc butch said "well dont forget to bring your bike! Grin" so yes i did bring my bike and just my luck dondie azarcon has work to do also in dagupan so as soon as i landed in dagupan...dondie decides to ask me to ride with him 4pm to 6pm in the evening of jan 10, 2009

business with leisure....bisekletaguy carries his bike off to dagupan 200 kms north of MAnila for work (the long stainless railing seen at the background) for the new hospital owned by doc butch ydia.

dondie azarcon stays in front of a needle worked "painting" done by his wife wowie and given to doc butch ydia as token of appreciation for the effort of doc butch ydia and his staff at the nazareth general hospital to save dondie's life when dondie met accident in 2007
