So last weekend us WhenInManila.com writers celebrated our editor Vince’s birthday over at their place. And I finally took the commute outside Makati on my own for once and ventured into the far unknown right at the depths of LRT 1, and actually crossing over to the LRT 2. It’s honestly the farthest commute I’ve made on my own (which is quite embarrassing LOL) but I’m very glad to have lived to tell the tale.
Our editor getting his cake and eating it too lol
Me about to attack Ilustrado’s insanely yummy paella, it’s FILLED with sahog wuhoo toppings abound!
Some of the dude writers of WheninManila.com
I honestly don’t remember what was so funny here -____-
Cheryl with Chase the weird cat! This cat kept hiding in a plastic bag the entire night.
When In Manila writers are weird o.o but heaps fun!
Yay group photo!
After dinner we had more drinks and played charades. And because When In Manila is so badass the prize up for grabs was a high-end speaker! Too bad I lost FML T_T
Me being mad at Aileen for making me lose >:) LOL just kidding I don’t know why my face looked like that!
I forgot I was with a bunch of bloggers that night; didn’t take any photos but managed to grab a ton from everyone else! Grabbed most of my photos from writers Cheryl Violangco and Mae Ilagan, instant documentation committee!
During the awarding ceremony, Cheryl won the speakers *luckyyyy*
Sea of bottles, Manila Beer sent the birthday boy 18 cases! Enough booze for year’s worth of parties wtf
Hello piggie! Yummy yummy baked lechon courtesy of Hecky’s Lechon. So crispy!
PIZZA HEAVEN MY OH MY ultimate grub from Yellow Cab! I would’ve finished it all if I had no shame.
Stacks on stacks of pasta and wings, I swear I tried to eat as much as I can to help them out
One of the writers brought over cupcakes his mom made! Managed to get myself a red velvet before all four were attacked.
Mochi from Dezato Mochi Cafe! So good, especially the dark chocolate one! You know how some mochi balls get all messy and soggy once they thaw out? These don’t *thumbs up* Birthday boy got one of the green tea flavored ones before anyone got to take a piccie of it.
I had heaps of fun meeting all the new writers, so nice to get to know them and finally hang out. Contrary to popular belief, most of us have never met each other! We mainly communicate through email and Facebook *techie lvl 100* so this experience made our writer community feel much more human and concrete. I’m having a mini-Armageddon in my tummy now, so it sucks that I’m missing out on yet another get-together -___- But I’m sure glad to have attended this one!
