Merry 2014!

On the days leading to Christmas eve, I was busy shopping for these and then some…

Well, except for Stuart… He was a gift from Rain.

Every Christmas, we typically attend mass on the 24th, before midnight. But this year was an exception. I had work so we had dinner early…

Then we visited Dad’s older sister, Tita Edna, and family. I wasn’t able to take pictures with the cousins, shoot…! I was too preoccupied with trying not to be late for work… Next time, surely…

All Hail to Our Beloved Assumption

I went to Iliolo City on 12.20.14. for a reunion, 20 years after graduation. I only spent a night there because I had work on Monday.

The venue: Cilantro Restaurant.

It was really nice to see friends and batch mates from waaaay back.

And I was quite surprised I still recognize most and know them by name.

After, we went to a bar: Flow…

The 5 of us here were the last people to leave… actually, we stayed at a convenience store a stone’s throw from the bar until around 7am the next day… So, yeah, I got to sleep only a few hours before rushing to the port to catch my boat home.

Thank you, peeps. I had fun…

One for the Wave

Going back to December 2014, after the Stellar Christmas Party the company threw, our batch of trainees had a little Christmas party on the 19th at the office.

After, I caught up with a few friends at a bar restaurant, called Imbiss. Now, this restaurant has a new location and owner, I believe. But it’s known for it’s signature sausage, which Dad and I loved. We used to eat at the old Imbiss restaurant way back.

I’m wearing: ruffled leather jacket, One Piece tee, floral jeggings, Airwalk sling, Converse sneakers.

The revamped Imbiss is a bar-cum-gallery and showcases a lot of artwork from local artists. There are bands playing there as well. Some gigs are actually organized by Kent and some friends friends actually unwind by performing there.  In fact, teens from a charity group we organized some ten years ago performed there that night. But I was unable to take pictures, unfortunately. I was just too tired and preoccupied with the thought of having to wake up early and hop into a boat to Iloilo City for a batch reunion the next day.

Good thing, Kent, Botsky, and Amiel drove me home… Kent was my official photographer during the catch-up sesh… It’s nice to see old friends again. I hope there’d be more of this, but everyone seems to be busy with their own thing… We’ve grown up… Probably, but probably not…?

Well, the next post will be about the reunion in Iloilo. Til then, good day!

Missing out… Pit Senyor!

Yet again… Oh, Cebu. How I miss thee… Just a quick break on backtracking the events of last year (what- already?)…

I had been kind of hoping I won’t miss the Sinulog Festival this year, but fate has a great sense of humor (check all that applies) as always… Anyway, here are some photos I grabbed from dear friends’ Facebook timelines…

stellar

… it was called.

The what now? I know, I’ve gone off the radar these past weeks…  not that anyone noticed, yeah? But, I’ll still be backtracking anyway. So, expect that the succeeding posts will mostly be about the happenings on the final weeks of 2014 and first few days of 2015.

Anyway, about Stellar… I’ve probably mentioned in passing in previous posts that I recently joined a new company and lucky me, I witnessed how seriously employees there celebrate major events. And such was the Christmas Party that was held on 12.14.2014. The production numbers were amazing…! The venue, the SMX Convention Center at SM, which recently opened.

Now, without further ado here are snapshots from the event, mostly starring me and friends old and new…
