alam niyo naman ang mga biglaang lakad diba? sila yung madalas na natutuloy. that’s exactly what happened yesterday lunch time. just as i sat in front of my PC and fired up messenger, a college friend asked me if i was free for early lunch. she said she had convinced another friend whom we’ve never met for such a long time and thought they’d want additional company. naturally, i said yes since i was missing them both too.
i walked to UP Town Center (yes, it may be a 30 minute walk but it’s not that difficult or boring. unhealthy, maybe, but not boring.) and met abi on the elevator to the 3rd floor. as we approached, we saw how long the waiting line was outside and saw jean. she said we were #12 on the list. so, take note… lunch isn’t the best time to go here. at least the waiters took our orders even before we got a table.
after 30 minutes or so, we finally got seated and in 10 minutes, our food was ready. and i wasn’t prepared for how much food my 2 girl friends ordered! way too much! or maybe i was just having a ‘weak’ day that day… haha!
i ordered a burrito and paired it with a beer. they ordered paella, nachos, quesadillas, and chicken/beef skewers. (of course these aren’t the exact names of the items. just check their menu. :D) i ate 2/3 of my burrito plus some of the things they ordered. and no wonder people queue up for this place… the food was really good. and you could have your choice of dip/sauce… have it mild, tangy, or spicy.
anyway, after a long chat and lots of belly rubbing, we each had to go back to our jobs. and it was fun making chismis and catching up on friends. i wish we could do that more often. maybe 2017 is the year i make that a resolution: more friend meetups. not just during occasions like birthdays or holidays. just a “hey, how have you been?” meetups.
