Maybe it was the weekend of just sleeping and surfing the net in Bataan that propelled me to look for a Tuesday night g. Maybe it’s because I woke up wanting to see my friends so that I can read their fortune through my brand new tarot deck. Maybe it’s to help Joko satisfy her cravings for isaw and chicken liver. Or maybe it’s because an inexplicable and unstoppable force of nature just told me not to go home yet and enjoy like a common college kid who can just give tomorrow a dirty finger and give in to the temptations of a starry January night. Whatever the cause was, I’m glad I went out last night. The skull-splitting pain I’m feeling now is nothing. I am still in my happy place. 🙂
After work, I went to Robinson’s Pioneer to meet up with Joko, Jessie, and Carlo. After helping Joko to get red stuff for Jake (her new car), we set out to look for a place with siomai (Jeman likes), isaw (Joko likes), smoking area (Carlo and Iya like). Perfect Place = Central BBQ Grill! It’s just semi-sorta behind Pioneer, prolly 10 longjumps and 3 cartwheels away. Haha, some servers recognized me from the BF Pque branch.
A quick convo of me and James, the former headwaiter of Central/Tides BF…
James: Ma’am Iya, hanggang dito nakakarating kayo ha!
Me: Eh kasi I live in Mandaluyong na!
James: Kayo pa rin po nung bf n’yo?
Me: Weh. Sino?
James: Yung ‘nung nagbirthday po kayo sa Tides na ka-kiss n’yo…
Me: Weh! Kuya, kakain pa lang ako! Ayoko mawalan ng gana! Jupakan ko ‘yun eh!
Haha, I was driven to disgust for a few seconds by the inconvenient memory, but I wanted the night to be all good vibes, so I just let it go. Better vibes when the siomai, isaw, hotdogs, sisig, SML and bottled coke arrived! Woohoo! I miss the South, good thing there’s already a Central in Manda!
Have I told you lately that I lovelovelove my go-go friends?
Go-go friends: Joko, Jessie, Carlo, and Miki (there are others still, like Carla, but they have little or no relevance to this entry, hehe but I still love you guys)
I love them because they are always on the go and it’s very easy for them to say yes to social invites. In other words, mga kaladkarin sila. Love it!
Uhhhh… what’s kaladkarin in English? :p
Fun times with Jake going to Fort. My top three picks:
1 Singing Get Far’s Shining Star off-key with incorrect (?) lyrics
“You’re my soulmate, my summer and my faith… your kisses are better than wiiiiiine… there’s nothing I want more than you girl…”
2 Boobs. Fake boobs. Big boobs. boobs. No boobs. Man boobs.
Ahmmm… I don’t want to stand next to Joko! You! You just stare at my legs! Haha!
3 Twisted pity sex concept
“I pity you for having sex with me! I piiiiiiiiiiiiittttyyy yoooooooooooooouuuu! You are very pitifuuuuuuuuuuuullllll!”
Pictures ahead. Keep on reading. :p
go-go friends * bacon-wrapped prawns
penafiel and sergi * pretty ladies 😉
Congratulations to us, we did not get lost going to Barcino. No sense of doom, no driving in circles, no TJ Trinidad to ask for directions… Ay, sayang pala! Hehe.
From isaw, hotdogs, and beer… we moved to chicken livers (in sherry naman), prawns wrapped in bacon, and wine. Another thing I love about my go-go friends is that they are so flexible. (Guys, next time let’s have a balut-foie gras night! Hehe!)
Half-brit, second cousin Miki arrived fresh from work (work ba talaga, haha) and she’s not the only mixbreed in the table. I just found out that Joko is not part-Indian but part-Latina! Oh wow! Shake that J-Lo ass! :p
Sergi made a cameo before he went out with his buddies (mga kabatak na dayuhan) and explained (or was forced to explain for the sake of photo-opp) what Peñafiel is. Also saw Virginia before she left for 101 and I invited her to go to Emba with Sergi, Oryx and moi for the Year of the Ox Party. Yaaaay, another thing to look forward to!
tarot reading * checking out a pretty bottle
I read Carlo’s fortune in Central and it was Joko’s and Miki’s time to shine in Barcino. (Jeman was busy enjoying the free wi-fi.) So okay, according to them, I am pretty freaky. Fretty preaky. Whichever. As for me, I’m still thinking if I should check for updates about what was told 7 years ago. About my S/LR or RL/S or L/SR life-altering person. Weh, I’m not really into freaking myself out via tarot. For all I know, fate is just telling me to get a new camera. SLR pala ha.
Speaking of cam, last night’s pics are mostly in my Multiply. I’m sure there will be more pics to come since Joko and I are thinking a Barcino get-together should at least be a once in a month affair.
We found our happy place. *insert Kings of Leon’s Your Sex is On Fire*
I’m happy and-yet-but-albeit my head still aches like whoa. I think I may even have fever now, oh well, nothing a quick drink can’t fix.
