Shiny Happy People

In the Metro.

Loving lunch today with friends slash former officemates.  After weeks of planning we decided to have brunch at Sala Bistro in Greenbelt 3( beside People's Palace). I've been hearing good reviews of their brunch menu and true enough it exceeded beyond expectation.  The place was sleek with glass decorations all over, well lit atmosphere with interesting lighting fixtures, and  it was impeccably clean and quiet(obviously for brunch).

Class of glass.

Leading lights.


Loving this flower arrangement.

A room with a view.

My diet tried to hold me back but couldn't resist having the English Fry Up dish( bacon, sausages, two sunny side ups and tomatoes and mushroom on the side) and for dessert was the ricotta pancakes with caramelized banana and maple syrup (super to die for).

My breakfast favorites.

Yummy Bananita.

Seeing everyone looking good and well was food for my spirit. I can still recall our editorial meetings, closing at the office, shootings but more importantly the kwentos, bondings and all the laughing...and gossiping ha ha ha.  Seems like nothing has changed, and the moment felt like how it was back then and still is now-family.

Today, most of us have moved on with our lives doing the things we wanna do that makes us happy.  Whether writing, teaching, cooking, traveling, styling and eating, we've found our little corners in the sky making our own wonderful rainbows.  

Boho Chic.

Bluer than blue.

Love locks.
