the birthday girl.. but those are not her bottles :D

It all started on the January meetup, when 3 guys and 2 girls under the influence of alcohol (remember the big mugs of beer the 3 travbuddies here are holding? yes, that's them, LOL) agreed to meet on February 2 in a house in Quezon City (yep, my house) to celebrate my birthday and Bryan's (ryan_84).  Ryan didn't make it though because of work.  I am really not the type who entertains visitors at my house since I only had my own place for roughly 3 months and my house is still unfurnished for the most part.  I do have reasons for not wanting this to push through.  First problem, I only have 2 plates.  Solution:  Share plates?? Girls 1 plate and guys another plate? Nah, that wouldn't do.

photo op take 1: let's try this standing up..
  Second problem, I only have 2 chairs and a coffee table.  Solution:  Girls sit on the two chairs while the guys sit on the floor.  Nah, it wouldn't be fun.  Imagine the girls looking down at the guys when we ask, "do you guys want more rice?"  I am afraid the guys wont be smiling to us then :D but we sure would be smiling to them, hehehe...  I was determined to tell them that it is a bad idea to meetup for that day, but then my dining set which was supposed to be delivered on Feb 4th as the earliest got delivered 2 weeks early!!!  Ooops, suddenly one problem solved.  Third problem (or we can call it the second problem since #2 has already been solved), FOOD.  Yaiks! I dont know how to cook (well, I can give it a try :D).
take 2: sitting down.. (Josh, is there also an orange inside your mouth)
  I know, I know, I am giving you all lousy excuses.  I can just order food from a resto or just try cooking a simple meal.  Lousy excuse, Jenneth! So with just two small problems, I sent them a message that they are welcome to come to my house on Feb 2 for dinner.

 

Date:  February 2, 2008

Location:  My house :)

Host:  Jen (jennethm)

Guests:  Sarj (kickassstunner), Josh (the_bloodsucker),  Ted (ted332)

 

It was an uneventful day, full of endless chatting from all four of us, travel related and not.  After dinner, we put the coffeetable and chairs in my office (I work at home) and bring the booze there too (courtesy of Ted's generosity) to also enjoy the company of Nina (a fellow travbuddy, profile name is aoisoba) online through MSN voicechat.  It was a night full of jokes, chat, food and drinks.  It was indeed an early celebration of my birthday :D  Thanks guys! err.. +1 girl.

 

Oh, about the food. :D My heaven-sent uncle took care of it as a gift for my birthday.  We had adobo and pinaupong manok (sitting chicken - what a funny name for a dish, right?), plus home-made chocolate cake from our favorite caterer.  Come on, do you really think I would make an effort to cook??  Hahaha!  And yes, I bought new plates. :D
