Found a link to a dear friend's musings. I had been a regular recipient of her musings awhile back but there was a dearth of them for sometime too. Well, I guess her latest writings would explain them all. She took up her masteral studies at the American University in Washington, D.C. and now she's working at ASE, Alliance to Save Energy.
Quoting ASE's description on its website, "The Alliance to Save Energy is a nonprofit coalition of prominent business, government, environmental, and consumer leaders who promote the efficient and clean use of energy worldwide to benefit the environment, the economy, and national security.". Yeah, I know - pretty heavy stuff. But that's Lyra. Always there for mother earth.
And she's not the geeky type either. She's one cool, hip, urban chick! When I went to D.C. last summer, I met up with her and Rem(another very good friend) for lunch at Bangkok One, a Thai resto. From Chinatown, I took the Metro(their subway system like our MRT) and got off at McPherson Square. Rem was first to meet me since her office was just a stone throw away from the resto. Later, we heard somebody hollering. It was Lyra. I was surprised to see her in office clothes but riding her mountain bike on the streets of D.C.! Hahaha! Funny girl. But it was the epitome of coolness. And I envied her.
