My husband told me, a few days after coming from our vacation: 'You know what, this is the first vacation in Manila where we were always meeting people almost every night!' Well, he was right. I am a loyal friend and I do tend to keep them for a long, long time... In fact, everytime I go back home; there are reunions left and right -- from the childhood friends, to the classmates from grade school, high school and the university; to my former officemates and the casual acquaintances; and of course, the long list of relatives and god children!
And then I started blogging. Blogging introduced me to a lot of people who I now consider special people, friends really. Those people would include the Pinay moms of PMN. And I did get to meet with them during our vacation in Manila this year. What can I say, 'wow!'. And here I am sharing the fun photos.
Chateau, Annamanila, Jane, Sexymom, Noemi and I with the kids and my hubby at The Old Spaghetti House to celebrate the birthday of Sexymom. I just happened to dial Sexymom's number and then she invited us to come, gatecrashers we are:D
Here was the fun part, we got lost! Read the story here.
And then again, with more PMN moms at Burgoo, The Podium. I love this restaurant because the kids get to draw on their prepared-for-drawings table cloths; complete with crayons. And of course, the food! You should try the seafood salad, yummy.
Who were present? Sexymom, Noemi, Cookie, Rowena, Rachel (who travelled from a long, long far away Batangas - thanks, Rach for the thoughtful gifts for the kids), Feng, Lynn, and Teacherjulie.
And the kids were there, too -- Cookie's bubbly bundles and Rowena's very shy and clingy cuties, hehehe. MC got busy with Adi and Gaby while IC decided to stick with Papa. I think IC suddenly found it too much! Let me tell you, it was great meeting them. They were my blogging family, I would like to ask them to adopt me, ahahaha. We had a fun time exchanging stories, taking photos, and picking from and/or tasting each other's food, and sharing the box of chocolate that escaped my mom's notice :D I am really sorry I missed Megamom, Lady Cess, Mayi and Annalyn.
And yes, I would love to meet with them again -- with the kids, please! I hope then we could talk longer :D It is really refreshing to be laughing together, not simply giggling in front of the computer!
