finally, it happened. haha! this sem-ender hangout was originally planned to be held last monday. but due to some schedule clashes, things didn't work out for us. jusz left calamba that afternoon for her internship, julie was still in makati then. see what i mean? busy people. haha!
october 30, 2011 is the perfect date. today, there were more who made it - ME, FAITH, KRIZIA, JUSZ, MANALO, PORTEZ, OLIVER, HIBEK, JULIE. the call time was 2 p.m. but it's understood that we'd be coming by 3 p.m. onwards. that's how we deal with time. that's our culture, baby. haha! jusz was there earlier 'coz she, together with roc, went to school first then straight to the mall. haha! oliver and mel were the next to arrive, followed by hibek. hehe. when i arrived, mel, ver and hibek were waiting at the stall where josan works. i greeted them, then went straight to starbucks to meet roc and jusz. haha! the three of us were so excited when we saw each other 'coz jusz and roc had a lot of stories to share about their first week as interns at leo burnett. roc said goodbye after a few minutes of talk.
|this is me trying to cover myself. as usual. haha!|
|jusz and ver|
|joson and jusz|
when we were almost complete, that's the time we started thinkin' where to eat. it's also part of our culture, or may be other circle of friends has the same culture. you know that, that culture of debating for hours before reaching a decision. haha! max's, kenny roger's, classic savory, pizza hut. in the end, we went to MAX'S, the first choice. haha! it's a good thing we ate there 'coz we were already joking that we might end up dining at mcdo, the place where we always, always eat. we have nothing against mcdo. truth is we love mcdo. that's why we always eat there. this time we wanna try something else., something different. haha! when we got there, we occupied the two tables in the middle. again, we were joking 'coz it's as though we're a family eating there, families are the most usual guests who dine at max's. well, we consider each other a family so we still belong. haha! after the debate on where to eat, the argument on what to eat was next. haha! when our orders came, we did something we don't usually do as a group. we prayed. i was honestly surprised someone initiated to do it. it was a good thing though. it made me feel more that i was with my family. haha!
|this is us while we pray. oh so holy. hehe.|
|nard and faith|
|ME! sippin' some iced tea. haha!|
|not sure what i am looking at. haha!|
|i don't know who among them owns the plate. haha! whoever you are, you a glutton huh?|
|FAMILY PICTURE. haha!|
josan wasn't able to make it. she was supposed to be with us but when we went back to her stall, she wasn't there anymore. too bad. hehe. julie was the last to arrive. some of us were almost done when she came. julie, julie, oh julie. haha! while eating, we were updating each other on what we've been doing lately, exchanging jokes(the funny, good old jokes. haha!), and sharing the problems we have openly. it has become easier for us to discuss and involve our friends with our most personal problems. maybe it's because we have now really matured in a way that we already know how to listen, comfort, and advice each other. just sayin' hehe. we saw rochelle and archelle too. they had a date i guess that's why che didn't go to our get-together. it's pretty understandable. you know, those boyfriend-girlfriend quality time together. haha!
|this is us discussing where to go next. haha!|
|gago si nard e tinakpan ako. haha!|
|josan and darwin. darwin happened to be there at the mall too. good thing. haha!|
we didn't know where to go next. we really had no plans for this day. haha! joson finally suggested that we go to UPLB, the place where she and nard always bond. haha! most said yes, but there were also those who didn't want to. haha! we all laughed when hibek suddenly suggested that why don't we try to go to PUP in sto. tomas. haha! we laughed because out of nowhere he'd suggest such a place. haha! we ended up riding the jeepney en route to UPLB. haha! the ride was filled with funny stories from our high school days. we always love to reminisce the funniest and most stupid experiences when we were still studying together at st. john. haha! we were the loudest in the jeepney. it's always the case when all of us are together. haha!
|ver, hibek, nard, and me! haha!|
|ver hibek, joson, faith, me, and nard. haha!|
|faith and ver, ang mag-ex. haha!|
|i find this photo funny because of what mel tells about the guard. haha! wanna know? ask mel. hahahaha!|
we walked and sat and walked and sat from one spot to another when we got to UP. haha! those were not just boring walks but walks filled with chuckles and glee. haha! one of the highlights of that night was when leomel would be talking in english with british english accent and would be posing for a picture as if he was some cool hunk every time he puts on his VIOLET RAY-BANs. haha! he is so freaking funny! haha! he'd say that it's the effect of his violet rechargeable shades. the shades make him look cool, funky, and hot. haha! another highlight was whenever joson and nard would be playing violently like kids. that's how they show love for each other. they'd be hurting each other physically and nobody stops until one of them gets hurt. haha!
|si mel habang suot ang kanyang rechargeable shades. haha! pag suot daw niya yan nagiging cool daw sya at maangas!|
|ito si joson na wala na namang magawang matino. sari-sari ang pose e. haha!|
|nakailang shot pa bago nakapicture nang maayos dito dahil si joson e utas na pagpopose nang fierce. haha!|
|kawawa naman yung poste kay joson e. muntik na maputol sa bigat ni krizia. haha!|
|tangena. ano to? i miss you like crazy? haha!|
this is the reason i love saturdays. i get the chance to be with the people i wanna be with.
this is why i also love sembreaks. they give me the opportunity to mingle with my high school friends again.
i always love to eat with them, laugh with them, make noise with them, play with them, walk with them, spend money with them, dream with them, go home with them. haha! and i will never get tired of doing all these things over and over again for as long as i am with them. haha!
let's share more of these moments. haha!
