Something I always look forward to is meeting up with my best friends. It’s funny how the plans transpire. Not to mention the car ride bickering (Margie & Monica). It’s just so fun. It takes you back to high school!! It’s like being with kids. Haha. I’m known as just going with the flow when it comes to my friends. Just state the place and time and “bahala na si Batman”. We even carpool when needed. This weekend, I was lucky enough to have my driver, Danny, available. Thanks Danny.
Brassiere CiÇiou was Cara’s choice as recommended by Ianne ya? You know me, I hardly go out the comforts of my vicinity. But I will make the effort to be there to celebrate anything with these girls. Initially, call time was breakfast (8:00a.m.) but I doubt anyone wanted to be up that early on Saturday morn. Those who hitched with me arrived at 11a.m. It was brunch but actually became lunch. It has come to a point where being “late” is forgiven. Haha. But we don’t wait. We order and we eat. Teehee.
I was in the mood for eggs. Then again when am I not? Hahaha. Breakfast Bettina! Breakfast (as my angels are shouting in my ear)! I ordered the Eggs Benedict with Salmon & Mix Greens and of course my cup of joe. Too bad they didn’t have Barako. Yes, I actually asked. I settled for the Lavazza brewed coffee instead.
Fresh Oysters, Les Escargots a la Francaise and Beef Carpaccio to share. I skipped the oysters as I forgot to take my antihistamine meds. Got a taste of Monica’s Braised Lamb Shank, Tajine-style, with Potatoes, Carrots, Chickpeas, Mint and Coriander Salad, Lemon Confit. Yum yum. I think the rest all got eggs as well. Either Eggs Benedict or Eggs Cocotte.
And the winner dessert was the Kouing Aman which is caramelized laminated sweet dough and salted caramel ice cream. Could have eaten one by myself but I was stuffed already.
As always, a great day with the girls. Thank you. Happy happy my dearest Choochoo.
(P.S. That same evening, the word was SMASHED! Haha. Yup yup. They attended a wine crawl event. I asked them to drink for me. I guess they did. Hahaha. Love you girls!)
