After more than a year, our barkada was reunited when Trixie spent her holidays with us. She paid us a visit today at the office. To make it more special, we decided to have lunch in Tagaytay. Before leaving, Trix handed my Knotty Boy products. Sweet! I finally got my knotty stuff. Am so excited to use it!!!
We're 10 in the group. The group of Joey (with Lala, Chel, and Beng) left in his car. The rest went with Mikks in his pickup. We were supposed to leave at 10:30 but we left past 11 am already--all because of Lala. And to think the night before, she joked that she won't be the cause of delay this time. Her migraine was her excuse *rolling my eyes now*
En route to Josephine's, Joey wasn't being a good convoy lead (don't tell him I said that ;oP ). He kept on driving away. That challenged Mikks to drive faster. Everytime he overtakes another vehicle, all of us in the pickup truck screams like kids on a rollercoaster.
Finally we arrived at Josephine's before 1. We looked for a nice outdoor spot to eat. While waiting for our food--with Ogz in charge of ordering--we started taking pictures. Our plan was to have Ogz as our human tripod, as his punishment for forgetting his tripod and cam'ra. But it was Raz and Netski who took our pictures mostly. Food came and boy, it was good! Ogz ordered bulalo and sinigang na hipon for our soup, his ever favorite oysters (only one for each hungry soul), pakbet, rellenong bangus (Trix had this dish for about a year so she didn't even touch it), tawilis (crunchy and yummy), and Mikks' request--crispy pata. My barkada won't let me have any of the last dish. Bummer!
After our sumptuous lunch, we couldn't leave Tagaytay without taking our pictures with the volcano. The group had so much fun with Raz's new digital camera. The pictures that you see here all came from her. Standby for the pictures from Mikks'
On our way home, we grabbed some coffee at Starbucks. Ogz finally claimed his free planner.
And then we got lost! We noticed that the route we're taking wasn't familiar anymore so we went back. That's when I saw the Good Shepherd store--where the infamous Angel Cookies can be bought. I told my barkada that the cookies are made of hosts leftover. We didn't get one though =o(
The ride back to the office would have been quicker if not for a piece of road being constructed somewhere near Alabang. After passing the construction site, it was otay. We even had a short race with another vehicle.
We got back to Enterworks around 4 pm. I kissed Trixie goodbye. My meeting with Miget and Ning didn't push through. And later in the evening, I got some goodies from Trixie--beef jerky, toblerone, a cute moose keychain, and a magnet with Canada's famous leaf.
