‘Til We Meet Again!

I’m never good at goodbyes… nor am I good at saying farewell to friends, colleagues, and people I’ve met.  And because I’ve changed work in the last couple of years, I’ve met tons of new people – friends, frienemies, and people who I wished I never met at all… *he he*

Recently, I’ve resigned from my job at APAC.  March 28th was my last day, and my resignation was effective end of March.  Come Saturday, April 2nd, went back to APAC and saw friends and former team mates.

The morning started with the idea of going to Gerardo’s and have our drinks there.  But when we got there, the music was way too loud.  We won’t be able to talk and share stories there.  So we decided to transfer to Sangkalan, a nearby resto.  We originally planned to drink there at Sangkalan.  But again, we changed our minds and headed to Pork Barrel coz most of us really wanted to sing… *… and eversince the party at Nikki’s house, having VIDEOKE is a must!*

Before 9AM, we left Sangkalan and headed to Pork Barrel in Kalayaan… When we arrived, we were told that they will open at 10AM and couldn’t accomodate us inside as they’re currently cleaning the premises. *A bummer!*  So, while thinking what to do next, or where to go, we had some pictures taken.  See some of them below:

After almost 20mins of waiting and after a couple more attempts to talk and ask the staff from Pork Barrel if we can get in, the group decided to head on to Starbucks – a block, or a couple of blocks away from PB.  Going there, was an achievement for me.  It’s a long walk… and I’m not fond of them.  While en route, a few photos were also taken, and here’s one of them:

Journey to StarbucksAfter what seemed to be miles of walking for me, we finally reached Starbucks.  While there, me and Mai ordered iced coffee… and I ordered some pastries for the others.  Here’s how we were like inside the cafe:

After 30mins or so, we headed back to Pork Barrel… Finally, it’s now open.  We took VIP-C… and immediately selected songs.  First buckets were RHB and SMLight… then some pica-pica – cheese sticks, buffalo wings, and tokwa’t baboy…

Then, party started. *he he*

It was a blast!  We had fun… from the uber-high pitched song of Jun-jun… to our own version of Backstreet Boys and N’SYNC…. from the never-ending laughter, to the walang-sawang photo-op moments…

Forgive the quality of the videos.  I just used my mobile phone to take them. *lol*

I’ll surely miss them.  Every moment I’ve spent with these people were pure fun.  I surely enjoyed going out with them.  Here, a few more photos before I left:

It was nice knowing all of you.  I may have left APAC but I do hope we could keep in touch. 😀

Au revoir!  ‘Til we meet again…

    OMG! I was freakin’ touched by this blog! Am a blogger also. but stopped because of “writers block” and I really miss blogging. First of, you are always welcome for the pictures hehe. Alam mo naman, we’re not like others. Second, we will surely miss you, the soft spoken and light voice when doing calls to super lakas na tili, hahaha ndi ko makakalimutan yan! Yes, you left APAC, but the friendship we created remains. Congats and Good luck on your new job! Stay happy! We are always here for you! AJA! 🙂
