March 25 it is … to work I go. After just barely 3 hours of sleep … the guys fetched me from work for the part 2 of our reunion. So, at 11am I was fetched by my friends and proceeded to Serendra at the Fort for lunch. Ate at Abe’s (famous for their delicious Kapampangan food). I have only heard how famous this resto was (e.g. people lining up outside just to wait for their turn to eat, if possible prior reservation is practiced so you get to have available seats, etc.) So, I was there and it’s true … Was to have dessert at Conti’s but was too hot to wait outside the restaurant so eventually ended up at Larry’s Cafe (if my memory serves me right). Just had iced mocha since I was so full from our Abe meal. I ended up going back to the office at around 3:45pm … Whew! I have to finish all the needed materials for our big Bohol event for Thursday … IDs, Attendance Sheet, Uniforms, etc. But the guys wanted to chat more … so they ended up waiting for me at the office parking while i’m doing my last minute preps for the event. Out at 6pm, we then proceeded to Marikina at a cafe at the back of SDS Hospital (sorry can’t remember the name, don’t worry i’ll be back to that cafe and make a review on them). We ordered pasta, pizza and rice meals. In fairness, they serve good food! The thin crust pizza was great, even the spicy shrimp pasta was a hit! Since we we’re still tired from the 3am gimmick that we had … we parted ways at 9pm and will prepare for the Part 3: A Get Together with our Families.
I was so happy to hear the news that my high school classmate and barkada Clarice went home for a vacation after 17 long years. Yup, you heard that right … 17 years! This was a perfect timing for us to have our much awaited reunion (which we’re planning for so long time already). So finally, last March 24, 2008 we met at Pasto in Eastwood City. It’s an Italian Restaurant so pasta and pizza galore! We felt that the night isn’t enough to catch up on each other’s stories. So, we decided to go to Punchline for an evening of fun. I never imagined that this comedy bar is famous to balikbayans. Clarice was the first guest to sing infront of the audience and sang “Nandito Ako” by Ogie Alcasid. Laugh and more laughs and we didn’t notice the time … it was already 2:30am. Wow, I still have to go to work! Well, I got home at 3am already … just took a short warm bath, went to bed, then woke up at 6am! So off to work!!!
