the weekend that was...

this should have been posted last monday (but we don't have office that day) or yesterday but my connection was like on an extended vacation, so duh! anyway...

last weekend, me and lyn hosted a get together for old friends at my small space in imus. for the record, we are planning for this before the election last year but since we cannot find a date that fits everyone's schedule, it has been moved and moved and moved until i asked them two weeks ago.

although our tropa is not complete, missing were the hubbies of the desperate housewives, i managed to get everyone who's here for a weekend pot luck party. parang what about my place ang drama hehehe. and so we set the date and time and we stayed in the house saturday afternoon and stayed awake until 4 am the next day.

how did we do it? just look.

adobong pusit, buttered shrimps, crabs, bangus belly sinigang were cooked by lyn and her sister, me? i cut the ingredients and cooked the rice. lol

rhea and marlon brought with them Novaliches' Puto pao, elvira chipped in cake from becky's, mabel contributed barbeque from amber's, sherill toss in her sicilian salad and melony and henson add in the yummy leche flan and ube.


manny and badette put in a bottle of tequila each.

i prepared the nachos (i just arranged it, lyn cooked it)


as the night began to roll, magic sing for the first bottle of tequila

after downing the first battle/bottle, Cranium!

ah, this game is crazy! a combination of charade, pictionary, trivial pursuit, spelling (backwards!), word anagram, clay sculpture, singing/humming and many more, with tequila already flowing in our veins, hah! endless laughters. how in the world can you draw blindfolded with a time limit and the other groups are distracting you and your teammates? this game really is for your whole brain.

and after three hours, we finished the game, my team with lyn and sherill won, we also downed the second bottle of tequila, chat more, eat more, watched Cuaron's Y tu mama tambien on dvd, kwentuhan pa, and then by 4 am, everyone's asleep.

four hours later, when everyone's up, we eat again, parang nagkaron ng eat-all-you-can-food festival!

it was a weekend full of fun, a very nice bonding and catching up with old friends. imagine us when we were younger and fancy free, one weekend is not enough!

mauulit ito, sigurado.

Zherwin! Naalala ko tuloy yung college days ko. Get-together kami halos every weekend sa isang bakanteng bahay ng kabarkada namin. To the max kaya madalas pagalitan na kami kasi parang di na kami umuuwi. hahaha! I wish I can have more of those back...

Alam mo yung store sa ground floor ng Greenbelt 3 na ang name ay Hobbes? It has tons of games like the one you have. Ang sarap tumingin-tingin dun. Kaya lang... ang mamahal. I want to buy a Monopoly set! Boring choice ba? hehe

zherwin said...

zherwin said...

jho said...

tagal ko nang hindi nakakasama sa mga get-together na inaayos ng mga friends ko. hindi kasi magfit sa sched ko. hanggang pics na lang ako tumitingin.

Gina said...

Good food, the company of good friends, Cuervo, etc.etc. spells fun! Mukhang ang saya-saya . Nakakainggit ang pagkain zherwin. I love all those. Have you played Jenga? That would be another hilarious game to play esp. after you've had tequilla in your system. Tingnan natin kung di ka ba maging clumsy. =))

atticus said...

grabe namang parusa iyon. spelling backwards?

Abaniko said...

Intellectual games and a serious film. Ibang klaseng get-together party nga yan ah. Buti na lang may tequila.

You know how to organize a fiesta!

zherwin said...

jho, kelangan din ito pantanggal ng umay sa trabaho. :)

zherwin said...

Gina, Jenga is one of my favorites! we've been playing that since high school pa yata, at parati kaming napapagalitan kasi sobrang ingay namin lalo na kapag bumabagsak yung tower hahaha. we haven't tried playing that with tequila, mas masaya siguro!

zherwin said...

atticus, at ang buong team ang magi-spell, one letter per member, backwards tapos nakainom pa! plus time limit, disaster! minsan three words yung i-spell out nyo!

di ba, pahirapan talaga ang mga sarili? hehehe

zherwin said...

abaniko, i just don't know if we played intellegently, but we won! hehe.

zherwin said...

sidney, it was worth all the sweat. :)

lino said...
