A night at the Races

Our company sponsored a dinner & horse race night at the Turf Club.
Initially I thought it was a so-so affair but then it turns out to be a brilliant idea, everyone enjoyed themselves. It's far more better than having a dinner & dance affair...
Kudos to the organizers...specially for having arranged a private lounge for the employees and the free flow of food, wine & beers....










Eric & I lost on bets, some friends won, most friends lost....but all in all quite new and enjoyable...can descrive as even addictive, no wonder madami pumupunta dun...

Another Site Assigment..

I am now assigned again at site, Tuas South to be exact, malapit lang naman sa second link going to Malaysia...we're even joking about staying in JB would be easier travel wise...

No choice, have to abide...so I will be here until May next year that is if the project will have no delays on completion.

So for the the next 9mos my life will be getting up at 5.45am, leaving the house and rushing for the train at 6.15am, catching-up the bus service by 7am and traveling another 35min to arrive on site...huhuhu...

One bright side though, we get to leave the site by 5pm....but then it will be 5.45pm by the time I am at Jurong East interchange....

I think I need another career move, what dya think?? or agree with Eric on buying the car....
esep esep....

Zaldo's Visit

My friend, Rosaldo/Zaldo/Louie from university days came by for a visit, actually he was always having business trips here in Singapore but doesn't always have the time to go around the tourisy spots so the deal was this time I have to show him around since his trip will go beyond one week-end. Specifically daw sa Sentosa kasi he's coming around for 5yrs and never once seen Sentosa...as if he's missing something important heh...heniwey we're glad to show him around kaso the day we went to Sentosa ayun it was raining...me balat sinu?!
Enjoy naman kami sa visit nya, and mauutas kami sa kakatawa kahit kami lang tatlo ni labs ang sama sama. Well going out with real friends is really priceless...
I miss those days...hayyy....
Eto ilang pics namin, Friday evening we went to Chjimes, Saturday was spent in Sentosa, Esplanade/Marina Bay, dinner was at Clark Quay and Sunday was his flight out.







I hope we can have time by December to see the rest of our berks...that would be very nice...

Updates on Aug Pinas vacation

Aug 4 - Friday, on the plane, I was so upset with the crew...ganito po iyon and what a way to start my vacation ha!!...sa budget airline po kami and then of course I requested more leg room kaya dun kami sa me exit napa assign which is fine by me kasi sanay na ko lagi sa exit seat...eto na po si crew at ang sabi ay ilagay ko daw sa compartment sa taas yung aking maliit na handbag which of course very nicely na sinabi ko na bakit at puede naman under the seat dahil andun lahat personal things ko, etc, etc...ava at di daw puede kasi daw ay exit yun at dapat daw wala hindrance in case of emergency...e engot pala yun kasi kung ayaw nila ng hindrance e di dapat di nila binenta ang anim na seat sa me exit para walang nakaharang...SIRA ang logic nila di va?! highblood ako hangga maka landing ng erport, sus!!! amused si erico....



heniwey nawala highblood ko pagkarating sa bahay because of these kids...



Dinner time we went to Casa Cecilia in Taal, such a nice place and the kids enjoy themselves..






Aug5 - Sunday, Eric went to Manila to meet his friend and was suppose to go to Bulacan for a reunion kaso nasiraan sasakyan nya sa Alabang and being a Sunday wala sila makuha mekaniko, so luwas sa Alabang si padir and ako and since andun na rin ako I decided to meet my friends for dinner, saya nun ha...so unexpected kaya masaya kami.

We went to Don Henrico's for pizza and pasta, sina prens ko nag order pa ng famous buffalo wings daw na sabi nung crew e wala na daw wings kundi legs na lang, so fine! order si Alan, family size daw na 10pcs, lahat ng inorder pulos family size hehehe...ay sus pagdating ni buffalo legs e kasinlalaki pala ng halos kalahating max fried chicken...wow!! imagine mo yung 10pcs na ganun, walang kumain si Alan lang ng 1pc kasi lunod na kami sa dami food hehehe...dami tuloy uwi...I was with Alan, Mhy, Ghe, Dex and the so-called trainees as in OJT daw, yung 2kids ni Dex and Ghe sina Deana & Gabriele...sabi nila dapat daw Jolibeee na lang heeee...
Well si Eric naman since di sya natuloy sa Bulacan, those friends he was suppose to meet ay lumuwas na lang so nag dinner din sila somewhere sa West Mall. We went back to Batangas around 11pm na...
