A Reunion That's A Couple Of Years In The Making

I've mentioned in past entries that I used to work for a publishing company. It was a small publishing company, and we were all overworked but had a grand time! We were mostly fresh graduates when we got hired, so it was a great way to learn everything you can about publishing. It was where I met my good friends and some of the worst people on the face of the planet.

Many of us left for greener pastures, better job opportunities with probably better pay. I left the company November 2007, and I miss it dearly. We all became good friends when we were there so it was hard to say goodbye.

We've been wanting to have a reunion, but since people have their own lives, it was hard to get all of us together. The last time we got together was during our former boss' wedding last October 2009. But last Saturday we finally pushed through after n million re-schedules!! :) We all met up for lunch at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City and ate at the Super Bowl of China. Great thing for me because I super love Chinese food (as testified here, here, and here!).

But first, let me introduce you to my former officemates! :)

Team Chinky Eyes: AR and Mariko

Part of the original Editorial team: Gera, yours truly, and Jermaine

The super originals of FAME Editorial and PR! The best days of FAME, I must say, was when we were all together! :)

So now, let me let you guys in on what we had for lunch that day. We were all hungry and we had two boys with us, but the funny thing was we still had a doggy bag when we left.

Gera and I both wanted noodles. So we got the Cripsy Noodles with shrimp ad vegetables.

I super loved the sauce in this dish! Although it was just sad that it made the noodles soft in the end, it was nice to mix it in with the noodles and dip the shrimps in it.

When the boys arrived we asked them what they wanted to add and AR said Lemon Chicken.

The chicken was soft and tasty. But what got me disappointed was the lack of twang from the lemon sauce. If I recall correctly it was sweet! So I didn't really feel like I was eating LEMON CHICKEN.

I recommended this because I would order this in ANY Chinese restaurant: Sweet and Sour Pork.

Two-thumbs up for this one! One of the best sweet and sour pork I've had in a while! :)

And last but not the least, Yang Chow Fried Rice.

The star of every Chinese restaurant. Since I'm on a constant diet I don't eat rice. Maybe I should ask them how this was! :)

It was a great reunion I must say. We all had fun that day catching up and talking about the good old days in FAME. We may have our own thing now, but I guess you don't just diss your old friends. 'Til the next reunion guys! Hope that next time, there'd be more than just 8 of us hahaha.

This reunion was only the first half of my Saturday reunion extravaganza. Up next is my reunion with my BFFs in Tagaytay.
