My home vacay was awesome, it was great to see Papang again after the stroke. He was totally different from the last time I saw him and it was good at least he's getting better each day. It was nice also to see my paren't first grand child, baby Gab. She's so lovely, she's my youngest brother's daughter, she was born on Valentine's day.
When I'm home I see to it taking chances of having the food I missed and one of course is Chowking halo-halo. Love the kangkong and lauriat as well and I think it was cool of them having this new dish, orange chicken. It's like chicken sweet and sour added with real orange fruits. It's definitely mouth watering! And yes, who would forget Jolibee's chicken joy, spag and palabok? :D Yes, basically the food that aren't here in Bangkok. Of course, can't get rid of eat-all-u can indulgence, It was no surprise I gain more weight upon coming back.
Have visited one of my faves, Moon Cafe and I was glad hearing their expansion. I learnt they have a couple of branches already in the city and great one was in Ayala terraces. Their tuna belly steak is good having enough serving on the plate at a very affordable price. Thought going there for a meal is surely worth it.
One of the highlights is meeting my long time high school friends, GESPIES. It's so amazing to keep the friendship going on for years, we are the magic eight and though been separated by distance, we still manage to have time for the friendship whether complete or not. That "Tubod spring" get way was merry and the pictorials fun were all awesome! Another memory to cherish for me.
Nice to meet my former colleagues as well despite of us no longer in the same company we used to work for. It has been years, over six I guess and it was remarkable to meet again. We do keep in touch via emails though but seeing each person in flesh is indeed a different story. It was quite touching of them spending time for the evening and one has to travel for three hours to get to the rendezvous.
It was finally wonderful also to have baby Gab's baptism, both her grandparents from mother and father side were at the ceremony, lucky angel, surely she's loved and adored, I myself likes her a lot, too.
I can still say my vist at home is short as I have to get back here quick for work, or else I'll lose income. In a situation of no work, no pay, yes, the days and the working hours do matter. I should say it is expensive to travel minding the expenses and the loss of income in some way but that's nothing to get back to those who are close to my heart and special people who have played major roles in my life, that's definitely priceless.
