THANK YOU to:
* Betsy Ross, for designing the American flag, which was used as inspiration for the design of the Philippine flag, which was then used as inspiration for the colour scheme of this post
* Haruki Murukami, Amy Fusselman and Joseph Heller for keeping me company while waiting for a grand total of 25.5 hours in various airports and my parents’ living room
* Norm, for designing Simple, the typeface used in this post (and originally designed for the Köln-Bonn Airport)
* The husband, for convincing me that the “5” would look better in yellow
* Rodrigo and Nadeja Abos, for being the best parents ever
