some time off

Forgive me for not updating my blog for quite some time. After the wonderful vacation we had, I feel the need to focus my energy with tasks at work. But that doesn't mean I failed to have some time off and not have fun moments with people dear to me.

Let me start off with my high school friends. Last Saturday, we got together to celebrate Faye's birthday. We had lunch at their farm and spent the rest of the afternoon munching on variety of food. We had carbonara, lumpiang shanghai, sinigang na hipon, pork barbeque, inihaw na tilapia, maja, halo-halo, and indian mangoes with bagoong. There was not a minute that we were not eating!

And since another friend, Jannie, was also celebrating her birthday the following day, she treated us to dinner at a local restaurant called Tita El's, where we had calamares, pork sisig, crispy pata, siomai and some pancit bihon and canton. What a day of feast! I hope I gained some weight from that! :)

And then on Sunday, Husband and I, together with my in-laws, had lunch at a floating restaurant in Pililla, Rizal called Bulawan. It was my first time there and I enjoyed our stay. They provide free fishing experience to guests, which was a very relaxing activity, until our niece, Alexie was able to fish three times and Husband got none. Oh he was so envious! :)

Well, this kind of activities makes me look forward to weekends! Five days of busyness at work and a fun-filled weekend equals happy me! :)

I think it's so cool that you got to visit with your friends, and the restaurant you can fish at sounds fun!
