2017 Week 49: Parties
December 4 – December 10, 2017
We had our team party last December 8. The theme was throwback high school so we had to wear our high school uniforms. Venue was at Annix’s House of Kare-kare in Quezon City. Their kare-kare and crispy pata are good! Even our foreigner boss liked it.
It was a night of raffles, presentations and of course, recognition of the employees of the year. I did not win the grand price, but I won a Php 200 Sodexo GC nyahaha. Panggrocery na rin.
↑My raffle winning and my improvised high school uniform hehe.
I needed to shop for a dress on December 9 for the party on December 10 and so I forced myself to go to Megamall early night. My friend volunteered to go with me. And forced because what I really wanted to do this day was to sleep and sleep more! I always had a hard time looking for something to wear at year end parties, that’s why sometimes in the past, I opted not going because finding something to wear stresses me out hahahaha. And so it’s the same case for this year. I won’t go if I don’t find something on Saturday night hehe. But surprise! I was able to find one.
After shopping, my friend and I went to Din Tai Fung for dinner. It was quite late so there were no more long lines. This restaurant is famous for its xia long bao. I always wanted to try it but the long lines every time I pass by the restaurant discouraged me. Good thing the universe conspired with us this day. Look at what we had! Hehehehe.
↑Taiwanese Kao Fu (Stewed spongy gluten) – this is really good! Php 245.00
↑Xiaolongbao! Php 355.00 for 10 pieces.
↑Dandan noodles with spicy sesame and peanut sauce. My least favorite among our orders. It’s too spicy for my taste. Php 175.00 per bowl.
↑Sweet and sour pork. Php 485.00 for sharing (Php 255.00 solo)
↑Golden lava salted egg yolk bun. This is so good! Php 85 or 90.00 for 2 pieces.
We had the company’s year-end party on December 10 at SMX. I attended this as well in the hopes of winning a raffle. Plus Bamboo and Ely Buendia were the main guests. I did not win anything (as always), I had shoe malfunction (the downside of not using shoes frequently), but I enjoyed Bamboo and Ely’s performances. It was good to sing along because most of the songs they sang were familiar to me hehe.
↑Bamboo on screen! Can’t get too close to the stage as there were a lot of people already.
↑Ely Buendia. We are closer to the stage when it was his time to perform.
The end for this week.
