One cozy after work dinner with Chic. Cubao expo certainly has a great ambiance for unwinding. It’s my first time to hangout on a weeknight outside Makati. I went all the way to Cubao and went through the horrible congestion in EDSA but it’s all worth it.
One great catching up night with Chic.

My second sister, Ate Giselle, went back here in Manila after 10 months. It will just be for four days so we decided for a Manila staycation instead.
We’ve been very intrigued by Hotel H2O with its huge aquarium walls. I’m glad my sister is treating us for a stay there.
This is us waiting for our rooms.
We got two rooms- one ordinary and one aqua room.
The rooms are superb. It’s such a nice place to relax. Their pool area is a little awkward though because you have to go out of the hotel where everyone is especially those who will visit the Ocean park and the biggest pool is near where they hold the water shows. Other than that, the hotel is good not only for tourists but also for those Manila peeps who just want to have a little staycation in the city.

At the front of the hotel ready to grab dinner.
We had dinner at Movie Stars Cafe in Mall Of Asia. It’s a nice quirky restaurant- American dinner plus lots of entertaining! But of course, we do have our own star.
Looking forward to more of this. (:

I am a foodie, yes but I’m not a fan of buffets. I easily get full and I really don’t eat a lot at once. But even though I’m on a diet, I still agreed for a crossover buffet at Dads. After all, it’s a treat from my boss because we recently got our STI (Short Term Incentive) and for sure hers was huge.
So here’s a wrap up of what I got.
There are a lot more different cuisines to try but I can’t take any longer to get desserts and I’m worried my stomach won’t have any space for it.
The last. Halo-halo.
These are what I got and I was so stuffed after! We spent three hours in the restaurant. of course it includes chatting too while we hold ourselves from eating. How greedy people could be on buffet right? It’s nice to binge once in a while though. I enjoyed the food.

If it’s an overnight birthday bash with overflowing booze, it’s LJ’s birthday. We couldn’t be any happier to welcome and celebrate his special day with him.
We meet up the night before his birthday and had dinner at Papa John’s at Sta. Lucia mall. A mall we rarely go to. (:
And since we still have a hangover of the Beer Pong madness, we played it at LJ’s house but too bad we couldn’t get red cups. Where can we buy it? I won the first game by the way. I never thought I can be good on that.
It was nice to see these people in this room (LJ’s bedroom) again. It brings back our college days.
I don’t want to mention that the birthday boy and Jancel got drunk like hell. Let’s keep that as everyone’s secret. Haha. Cheers for more crazy madness and let’s just enjoy being young!

Met up first with my first two girlfriends in college since our February hangout is a night out kind of thing so it starts late. We wanted to try a restaurant we have not eaten at at Tomas Morato. And then we saw Steveston Pizza that’s still in their soft opening. Their pizzas are great. I will definitely go back.
So here I’m with them, Tricia and Sherry at Steveston.
The highlight of our February hangout was that it was organized by Tricia. It’s her first to plan because she’s the kind to just go with whatever that has been planned. I couldn’t say much but how she has done well. She was kind of saddened first because almost everyone cancelled on the last minute due to conflicts in their schedule but alas, they still made it.
Reservation. Complimentary pizzas (bec CC is owned by Tricia’s brother’s friend that thought it was her birthday:). Booze. Stories. Beer Pong.
So this is us.
And we played Beer Pong and lost but it was fun.
The night was crazy fun.

The shot after not having a hangout for two months (Yes, we missed to have Nov and Dec 2012 handouts)! Thanks to Zac for organizing our January hangout!
The shot glass says enough.
This is how it goes always with the gang. The boys are our clown. :D
And for this hangout we’ve finally met Jancel’s girlfriend, Mae.
The sweet couples of the gang.
Random hellos and smiles. (:
I definitely missed them and their company.
