High School Reunion at Papa John’s

High School Reunion at Papa John's

We had a high school reunion at Papa John’s located at BF Homes in Parañaque on December 30. It was so nice to see my high school friends again. Though I really miss those who weren’t able to attend. :’-( The last time we had a well-attended party was probably 2 years ago at Gerry’s Grill, Blue Wave. This year, only around 20 came out of the 87 graduates of ParSci batch 2004.

I am actually very happy that we have a reunion every year. Nothing beats seeing and getting in touch again with those people whom you have spent probably the best 4 years of your life. Plus, it is really great to see them once more and know where they have been and what they are doing 7 years after high school graduation.

Another highlight  is the upcoming release of our yearbook next year. We got busy with updating contact information and editing stuff to be included in the yearbook. Kudos to the initiative of my dear batch mates!

After the party, Aprille, Angel, Rhalph, and I had some coffee at the nearby Starbucks while the others went to Iago’s Grill for late night drinks. At Starbucks, I was able to try their Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha which tastes good. Though my favorite is still Peppermint Mocha. 🙂

Here are some images from our get-together. Enjoy!

I wanted to order the Cream of Mushroom but it was not available. So I ordered this instead. 🙂 It was actually better than I expected. It was really creamy and tasty!

Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

14-inch Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza

According to Papa John’s, the best way to eat their pizza is to first take a bite of their pepper, then dip the crust in their butter garlic dip, then enjoy the pizza. I tried taking a very tiny bite of their pepper. Turns out, I am still allergic to it. I had rashes after that and even until now. 😦 It was a very small bite even smaller than a grain of rice. T_T Anyway, this pizza uses a creamy base. No tomato sauce on this. Though it has bacon, chicken, fresh tomatoes, and some more as part of the pizza toppings.

We tried their Cheese Sticks for appetizer. It is just like a regular pizza dough topped with mozzarella cheese and it comes with pizza and garlic dips. I only ate 1 slice, same with pizza. I was not feeling well kasi. Rhalph ate the rest and I think he liked it so much especially with the garlic dip. 🙂

What I’m Reading Now: The Swan Thieves

I have always wanted to read The Historian and The Swan Thieves both by Elizabeth Kostova. I am of course very elated when I was finally able to get hold of my own copy of The Swan Thieves.

 

The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova

The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova

Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe, devoted to his profession and the painting hobby he loves, has a solitary but ordered life. When renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient, Marlow finds that order destroyed. Desperate to understand the secret that torments the genius, he embarks on a journey that leads him into the lives of the women closest to Oliver and a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.Ranging from American museums to the coast of Normandy, from the late nineteenth century to the late twentieth, from young love to last love, The Swan Thieves is a story of obsession, the losses of history, and the power of art to preserve human hope.
I will post a review once I finish reading this. 🙂

Merry Christmas!

Spent Christmas with my boyfriend and his family. On the way, we exchanged gifts. 🙂 Gave him a card and a silver bracelet and he gave me this huge “Crazy for You” ala Crunch chocolate pillow. Sooo cute! Thanks baby!

We went to Novaliches to visit some of his relatives… and had lunch there. 🙂 Had the traditional embotido, morcon, and lechon for lunch. Hurray!

Here’s what I wore for the day:
