last week was a week for meeting friends. met one blogger last friday, whose thoughts i religiously follow, for dinner and later for coffee that evening. we talked a lot. i talked a lot. hehehe. maybe thats why up to now i'm still paos from all that heavy talking; add to that the cold weather, and some of the sweat from my exercises drying up unchecked... tada! i've now a major cough complete with icky phlegm. complete package ba! whats worse, our office recently undertook applying some sortof of leak protection on our building's roofing system. the smell of chemicals wafting from outside is just too heavy for my delicate lungs to bear; seeing that its gonna go on for a week, i decided to take a break from smelling it even for just a day by making a sick call. taking my meds now. hope tomorrow will be much better for my lungs.
so, back to the topic.. last week was a week for meeting friends. hehehe. met a new friend from just two doors from where i'm living. together with red, who has her place at the third floor, and eyvicat who happened to be in the neighborhood, we ate at a bulalohan just a jeepney ride away from our place. the name of the establishment is R and J Bulalo. nothing fancy, its just like any other place that serve the kind of stuff. open air, videoke... expect to see it convert to a drinking place by night. what separates it from other bulalo places is its walls--its littered with pictures of local celebrities who frequent the place, or have eaten there once. marketing strategy : get snapshots of stars and have them sign on cartolinas, post it on your walls so your place gets a different kind of shimmer. as we were having lunch i can't help but say hi to iwa moto, wendell ramos, boy abunda, kris aquino and a slew of others from both kapuso and kapamilya networks. reminded me of matutina restaurant in our province who has as its endorser the one and the only gloria macapagal arroyo lang naman... hayup! the food was ok. for just Php 150 each, the set meal we got included bulalo; an inihaw bilao consisting of chicken, pork, beef, and hito; an itty-bitty seaweed salad, and a pitcher of iced tea. with all that, we got our tummies filled to the brim. hehehe.
how about this week? i dunno. i've a thing coming this week that i know will not fall under the "meeting friends" category. sigh. and it gives me the shivers, just by thinking about it. i may choose to write about it, or i may not. whatever it is, just wish me luck, that this week pass in my favor. cryptic gentle, its so not you.
