  This time, thanks to face book group on ICS alumni, I informed that  I was coming to Manila well in advance.  Some alumnus responded and we made plans to meet at the hotel to go out to dinner.  Despite the good plan, my flight from Tokyo was canceled and I changed to another flight, (rather eventful day!) and we had to change time.

   It was very nice of them to wait for me and we managed to do mini-ICS reunion.  It was great to see them all doing very well. Some were at ICS in 2001!
