Since we spent the entirety of Good Friday at home, we were a little stircrazy, but looking forward to the day. We had an invitation to lunch at our friend Yvette's home, along with other friends Lisa and Berck (who are expecting their first child in a few months) and Stevie and Ana (who toted their beautiful ones Agustin and Felicia). Yvette and Lisa attended Columbia University together... Yvette was actually my Matron of Honor, and we are a pair that have seen each other through a lot in our lifetimes in New York. She's seen me through a few breakups (and I've seen her through a few as well)... when I was still single and on the few times that I didn't want to be by myself in my apartment, I'd head to her place, even if I ended up staying awake the whole night. There were very few friends I was comfortable enough to do this with... she was one of them.
First we headed to Greenbelt 3 to check out of the Macbook Air, something Rob has been eyeing lustfully for a while now... unfortunately they were out of stock at the PowerMac Center. He was thwarted... for right now... it's something he has his sights set on, so we'll just have to wait a while. After that, it was off to lunch at Yvette's.
Lunch was delicious, and taken really slowly... beef, lasagna, chapchae, salad with a honey vinaigrette dressing, plus rum cake, ube halayan, sans rival and ice cream for dessert. It ended with a delicious cup of coffee, and plenty of laughter and conversation. Lunch started at around 12:30 and ended close to 4:00, most of it spent chatting over the latest goings-on in Manila. Of course all good things must come to an end, so after lots of hugs and kisses goodbye, we were off to Power Plant.
Of course we paid a visit to PowerMac and then walked around for a bit... got some crayons and paper for Nic... a few items at the grocery store... a few escalator rides as well for the little one, and it was off to Alabang. We stopped first at Alabang Town Center for Rob to check on something before we went home.
It was a fun Saturday spent with friends and family.
