Dining Out With Friends

food musings, eating, dining out

Nothing beats dining out with good friends. Enjoying good company while feasting on mouth-watering dishes is simply the best! Top that with good, relaxing music coming out from randall amps at Guitar Center or similar gear and you are in for one enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

Last March I had the chance to have a lunch date with my good friends from my former work. One of our dear friends, Mommy Mars, went home for a vacation from the UK and invited us to have lunch with her on Black Saturday. I tagged the little man along to see his godmother and my other friends. Good thing, one of my mommy friends, tagged her son, Jolo along, too. The two little men had a wonderful time bonding and playing!

We had our lunch date at Gerry’s Grill at Greenbelt 5. I had pasta and chicken, thinking those where the only food on the menu that the little man is  most likely to eat. Turned out, he was too excited to play with Jolo and did not give the food a second glance. In the end, I had to finish the food all  by myself! Also on our table are other delicious dishes, including the meaty sisig as well as an endless rounds of iced tea.

But more than the hearty meal and the good food, it was the good conversation with familiar faces that I enjoyed the most. Also in attendance that day are Cil, my dear friend Ric, our former team leader, Jigs and Jannai, who tagged along her hubby, Wecky, as well.

It was one fine dining and hanging experience. I hope to see these folks again real soon!

Beating The Summer Heat With Ice Cream

desserts, ice cream, food musings

Can you believe this heat? The sweltering heat just shoot up to the most intolerable degrees and everyone seems to be doing whatever they can to beat the summer heat. One of my faves? A scoop {or two or more! ;)} of my favorite ice cream.

My siblings went home a few weeks ago with these and we had such a wonderful time catching up our summer adventures {or lack of it}.  This is one of the new flavors of ice cream Selecta has recently came up. I particularly enjoyed it + I love the fact that you get to enjoy 3 different flavors in one tub. Mango is my most favorite of all! 🙂

This 1.5 liter  tub also comes with a free box of wafer cones which made us enjoy our ice cream experience even more! 🙂

Oh well, writing about this now is making me crave for another scoop, maybe I will get some later on when I go out with the little man, once I am done reading these nifty tips on how to speed up my pc at Iolo.com. 😉
