Craft Beer Stories

craft beer stories

I wish to tell you about the local craft beers that we had, but a bigger part of my mind would prefer to share stories from last night. 

I met up with two of my good friends last night. They are nice enough to join me in a short store visit before we headed to Century City Mall for dinner. I thought it would be sweet to take a photo of them. But looks like they were planning on something… Hmmm…

We seldom see each other – and I always wish that they were also blogging (or that we work in the same office) so I could see them everyday. We only get to see each other thrice a year – my birthday, D’s birthday and T’s birthday. I am happy that this year, we get to see each other much often.

It is always table for 3 for us. They are fun to be with, they understand my quirkiness, they get kilig too over my kilig stories and they we don’t push ourselves to get a boyfriend (or girlfriend) or get married or have kids. I hate it when some of the people I know would push me to do things just because those worked for them (like having kids outside wedlock). 
We had dinner at Hole in the Wall. I was craving for some good chicken and corn on the cob. Bad Bird saved the night. They had pasta. I don’t know what else to say about their food but I promised to cook pasta for them next time.

Almost always twining. We always wear almost the same clothes 🙂 
T was sleepy even after we had coffee. D and I talked about life and how the law of attraction worked for me and her friend. T was in zzzzz-land. 
I told her how I never really planned my life. How I just envisioned things to be. When I use the hashtag #whatRuthwantsRuthgets – it is not because I was bragging – it is because it is true to my life.  Hashtag #blessed. Hashtag #pakganern.

D was craving for good beer and we had a little adventure at BrewFestMNL. We love the couple beside us who were so into each other. They were too cute – like the kind of couple who is still at the “getting-to-know-each-other” stage. They were dancing, talking and laughing. They were in sync but they were not physical. They had their own little world in the sea of beer-drinking crowd and trance music.
I wonder if the guy’s name is Pedro. When was the last time you had that moment with someone? When you guys feel totally connected?

I and D had our moment too.

Girl friend. 

We love the vibe in Brewfest MNL last night. People were there “not to be seen” but because they love beer. I was there to support local and support my friend’s craving for good beer (thank you to our friends from BrewFest for the invite!).

I just want to tell my friends how much I appreciate them. I am still sad over the passing of a blogger friend, Mommy Jen. It is a reminder that we should always tell our loved ones how much we love them, it could be the first time you would see them.

Thank you for the ride T!
I have a gazillion deadlines but I chose to write about this story. Because that’s how I started blogging anyway. Btw, I started using a new photo filter + those texts on the photos are my real handwriting 🙂 I do missed writing. 
How’s your weekend?
