Kule Xmas Party and 1st Misa De Gallo
Yesterday, February 15, was a really busy day for me!
During the day, I was up studying for my Pharm 21 exam later that day. The Manila Collegian Christmas Party was also set at 6 pm. 😀
The day before, I asked Mikey to come along with me so that I have someone to go home with. I wasn’t allowed to stay overnight for the party. Besides, I really can’t because I’m going to attend the Misa de Gallo. It would be my first time in 18 years to actually attend it. Misa De Gallo is a dawn mass that starts at December 16 and lasts for 9 days until December 24. 😀
Anyway, I also mentioned to Bubi that I’m going to Kule’s Christmas Party. And everything happened so fast that it was set that he’s going with Mikey and me. Lolz. (He invited himself. :P)
So we were all set to meet at G-Unit Net Cafe at 2pm. I was sooo suprised when Bubi messaged me saying that he’s already at G-Unit at exactly 1 pm. Talk about being excited! ^__^
We left G-Unit at exactly 2 pm and we got to school at around 3:30 pm. It was really traffic! It was Bubi’s and Mikey‘s first time to go to UP Manila and I’m glad that they had no problems getting in. Hehehe. (That would mean they look like students of UP Manila.)
My test started at 4:30 pm and I asked Bubi and Mikey to go to Robinson’s Place first to kill time. They ate at Wendy’s and they also looked around. They went back to College of Pharmacy at around 6 pm. Then, Mikey decided to buy a shirt. I helped him choose a shirt at American Boulevard. 😀 It’s cool!
We then went straight to the Manila Collegian office and I introduced them to my colleagues. I changed first from my white med uniform to a black fitted off-shoulder top and baby pink pants. I dressed it up with pearls. 😀
The party started… with food. Hahaha. We immediately attacked the dinner table there for the food. We had lasagna, chicken lollipops, garlic breads, brownies (c/o Megan), and softdrinks. We were sooo full after eating and the games started!
Our first game was Charades. Our group won! The next game was the Picture Perfect. The other group won. The judges for that game were Mikey and Bubi. I was sooo mad coz they didn’t let my group win. Lolz…
After that, we just bummed around. The drinking session started and I drank a little. GSM Blue with strawberry-flavored water! Yumyum!
Bubi coudn’t drink coz he’s still going to serve at the mass. So we left Manila Collegian office at around 10 pm. We went straight to Baywalk! We just walked from the start to the other end. We listened to several bands on our way to the other side. After that, we were quite tired so we sat for a while.
Then we decided to watch Big Fish at Bubi’s house. We went to G-Unit Net Cafe to ask permission from my mom. She didn’t approve at first because we need to sleep. But then, Bubi persuaded Mama to allow us to go. 😀
We went straight to Bubi’s house and his mom was waiting for us. Oh gahd. She actually got mad because Bubi got home late and he didn’t call just to say that he’s okay. 😦
It was really frightening.
Anyway, we were allowed to get inside. His mom told us it’s better if we stay there in their home than to go out late at night. okay… I was just glad that we went home with Bubi because, if he went home alone, he might have been really fried.
We watched Big Fish and I actually slept during the first part. I was sooo feeling drowsy. I slept while Bubi was taking a shower. Mikey was sooo great! He didn’t sleep at all! hahaha. He was there watching the movie religiously. It’s a nice movie! It’s fun and interesting!
After that, we all three went with Roarke to wait for a taxi. He’s working at a call center somewhere in Buendia. Then, we went back home and Bubi played the piano. He’s gonna master Pachelbel’s Canon. He’s almost done it anyway! ^__^
The next song I asked him to play was Because I’m a Girl by Kiss. He doesn’t need the chords to actually play it. He does it by himself. Cool, huh?
We then left for church at 3:30 am. The church was almost full! And to think, the mass starts at 4 pm!
Good thing we still got a seat. The mass was quick. 😀 There and it was really great! There were lots of people there! I saw loads of my friends there. Hahaha. After the mass, we got the Puto bumbong that we had reserved earlier.
Puto bumbong is a purple-colored native delicacy that is intended for the Filipino Christmas. It is a purple-colored dish cooked in standing bamboo or metal tubes attached to a steam-producing tin can or cylinder mounted on a small saucepot of boiling water or steam. Then, they are removed from the bamboo tubes, spread with butter and sprinkled with sugar and niyog (grated coconut). They are then wrapped in wilted banana leaves which will keep them warm and moist until ready to be eaten.
Gosh. Puto bumbong is the best!!! I LOVE IT! We all do! Actually, Bubi bought 3. Mikey and I only bought 2. ^__^ We ate at Bubi’s house and it was sooo delish!
Bubi ate 2 of his and Mikey and I only ate one. It was super filling that’s why we only managed to eat 1. We gave the rest to Mama. 🙂
We got home at around 6 and I slept until 7:30 am. Tita Olive sent her driver to our home because I still had to revise something there. I finished at 10 am and then I went home. I slept till lunch time. Sinampalukang Manok is for lunch. Yumyum! I slept again after that and woke at 6 pm. I was sooo surprised that the sun was already gone. OMG.
Anyway, I want to say thank you to all those people who greeted me Happy Birthday in advance! I can’t name all of you because you’re already a lot… Besides, I’m afraid that I might miss out a name or two. Lolz. You know who you all are anyway.
Thanks again! 😀
