Terrific Tuesday?? Hmm.

Belated birthday celebration of June and Jan. Lunch at Cafe Mary Grace with Lori and the celebrant. It seems that it’s usually just three of our who get together often. The others are on the flaky side or simply cannot make it. Haha. Our meetings are more or less always the same. The latest about each ones lives, rant and rave, the food we eat and their husbands and kids or their MIL’s and FIL’s. Haha.

I ordered the Smoked Salmon and Cream which was not bad at all. Not too heavy either. June had a Spicy Lemon Scampi and Lori with her usual sandwich. We have a plate of Dulong as well and no meal is complete without dessert and coffee. I had the Brownie Ala Mode and Brewed Coffee. By the way, I had a scheduled blood test right after lunch which I didn’t have to fast for. Then I realized that what I ate will appear on the tests. Waaaah! Sugar levels must be so high. Hahahaha! Bahala na si Batman. Zipping the mouth for dinner.

Makati Medical Center was crawling with media people. All the major networks were there. Being “malakas” with the guards, who don’t make me wait for blood tests and all, I asked what all the commotion was about. Apparently, the King of Comedy (Philippines) was confined at the ICU. Hmm. Going about my business, getting registered, paying at the cashier, and having two big vials of “precious” blood extracted from me, I patiently waited for my car.

Then it happens again. The girl at the blood extraction booth asked why I have a cane. All I really can do is smile and say is “I’m half paralyzed”, which leads to other questions then I have to give the long gist of what happened to me. Hahaha. Sometimes I just give my summarized website – Just an UDDER Day in Paradise for them to look up. Sometimes, I get so sick of myself telling the story over and over. Hahaha. You get what I mean. I literally sound like a broken record. But then I am reminded why I had to go through my experience. From there I gain strength and everything just falls into place.

Then momma mode as I had to pick up my son from school. Thankfully he was already waiting up front and not having the guard look for him as he has this habit of taking forever to come down from his classroom. As always, he was full of smiles and non-stop stories of what happened in school. Especially about his two or three new classmates.

When I got home, my order of RAWLICIOUS was already in the ref. Xavier and I were excited to try it. The GREEN MONSTER XAVIER and GREEN HERB JUANI. Coincidence names? I check the green concoction before I order. The Green Monster Xavier has o’greens, pineapple, banana, and o’ginger while the Green Herb JUANi has apple, banana, grens, o’celery, o’basil, and goji berry. They were both good but Xavier preferred the pervious order of Green PEDRO. In any case, here’s the GREEN MINDS. Cheers to that!!


My DH Mommas

The last time June and Lori visited me, I was still slightly bed ridden. Meaning, I wasn’t on wheelchair duties yet. I think I was just discharged from the hospital. June brought her infamous Chapchae (if you want to order let me know). She was picnic ready that she even brought plates and utensils as not to burden me with the clean up. Uh, June, that’s why I have yaya Helen and the rest to help clean up. That’s all we really do when we get together. EAT EAT EAT. 

DH Momma’s? I call them my Desperate Housewives Mommas. One, they are all married, I’m not. We all have kids more or less the same age, and we all met through our kids in the village park. So that’s about 10 years worth of friendship. I learn a lot about how marriage is and the intricacies of husbands. Hahaha. Despite the age difference I have with them, it’s all the same. I may have even taught them a thing or two. About what? Hahahaha. There are 6 or 7 of us in the group. Another riot when the kids get together but always fun.

Today we had early lunch at Cafe Mary Grace in Greenbelt. After listening to what they were ordering, I decided to be a “good” girl. I only had the Mushroom Pate and Fried Kesong Puti & Calamansi Vinaigrette Salad. BUT for dessert had to be RICH. Initially, we were suppose to share 3 desserts. Didn’t happen. We devoured what was served to us in a flash. Burp. Excuse me. Coffee please. Thank you. 

June had to go meet a friend and I agreed to be “kaladkarin” to Lori. After being stuck at home for months, I’d gladly accept an invitation to go out.

My son, had his own plans which I didn’t even know about until he called asking where the driver was. Haay. As long as I know where he is going, who he will be with, how he is going to and from, and to make sure he has his phone with him, I’m cool. I do miss him because he has his own world already. Hahaha. It’s rare that we have a picture together these days. I asked for one. Thanks to Photo Booth. Say CHEEEESE lovey.
