Fierce Blogs - Back to Basics


Share
I met up with friends last night over dinner. Darn! I really miss them. It was probably a month since I had the chance to be with them. Why? I am blaming the crazy weather we had in our country and nothing else! I mean, from Ondoy to Pepeng? Not only did they bring misfortune in our country, they also have a hideous name! Can we at least just follow the international names of these typhoons instead of changing it to a barriotic-sounding names? Please!

(Bloggers bubble thought, “Which leads me to wonder, may be Ondoy and Pepeng are long-time lovers who are having issues. Probably Ondoy slept with their neighbor, Morong and was caught in the act that lead to the whole disaster”)

We had Thai food for dinner and a whole lot of catching up with our personal lives - work, romance and the bad encounters we all had because of the recent typhoon. We all missed each other and everyone was hungry for bits of scoop over the other. We hardly ate, actually. A lot of rice, chicken curry and Pad Thai left on our table. In fact, we even had to ask our leftover food to be bagged – which we forgot to bring along with us (LOL). Call it senior moment!

After dinner we drove to Bonifacio, High Street where coffee and dessert await the gang. Oh! But not before we check the stores! Some shopped while most of us checked the hotties we see along “the zone”. As I told my friend, “Tonight is a good night! The crowd is infested with hotties”.

We ended the night in a very odd note, though. When we were about to head to the car park, we suddenly saw ourselves sitting (again) under the light post. May be we still don’t want to go. May be we wanted to chat more. But whatever it was, it was fun sitting at the drivers lounge with friends for more chatting.

It was really nice seeing everyone (even if we’re not complete). It was a refreshing change from the usual humdrums of our busy lives. These past few weeks have been tiring for me in many ways. I was wondering why? I mean, work is good. I don’t feel sick and all –but I feel somewhat restless from thinking of so many things.

I guess this is where the balance in life comes in. No matter how thorny things are, there is always a safe and sound side we can always go back to. It is a place close to our hearts but mostly ignored because of the demands of our individual roles.

Last night I went back to basics. It was the basic need of interacting to people who have known you all these years. It was that kind of company I was really longing for to take me away from a path I am not familiar with.

Some pictures using my Nokia E65 mobile phone (really back to basics, huh).

Feeling a bit emotional with our blog here.

I can relate in a way. We need to go back to basics every now and then. It can be tiring at times if we don't.

You have a very nice skin. What product do you use?

I like the way you write.

It's a combination of easy ready and depth. Mind sharing/talking to a group of budding writers/bloggers?
