Kathy Dacanay is one of my closest friends in life. We worked in the same University back in Davao and we're bonded with our common interests in blogging and, oh, yes, food!
She left the University in 2012 to work full time online as a web developer but we continue to meet elsewhere, most particularly in the cafe shop, not only to eat but to discuss business prospects and our interest in blogging. We're both into French audio tutorial lessons too!
With Kathy and Rowie at Cafe Juanita
We're colleagues back in the University in Davao. We're bonded with our common love for Food! Kathy shared my fascinations in blogging, French language and photography, While Rowena shared my obsession in traveling!
And so last August 30, We finally met after more than a year of not seeing each other. Another best friend and former colleague in the same University, who is now working in Manila and the one who convinced me to try my luck in the industry, Rowie Tagaan, joined us, we spent one night together at Alejandra Hotel somewhere in Makati to talk endlessly! We went to bed around 4:00 in the morning! Oh!!! So many topics to discuss, the giggling, the sharing of "life's updates" and all the good times we missed while still working together in Davao.
I love Maki!!!
We woke up very late hehe! And because the three of us really love to eat, the first thing that we quickly agreed is to spend lunch at Haru Sushi bar and restaurant in Pasig. We have variations, Kathy loved Italian dishes but I preferred Japanese cuisine haha! And Rowie is in-between. But we all loved TEA!
After Haru, we moved to its sister restaurant with a Filipino theme, Cafe Juanita and tried Creme Brulee. All of us loved French cuisine, so we decided to visit SM Aura and dine at PAUL, a French restaurant. And oh yeah, transferred to The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and had another round of pastries hopping!
We separated at 10:00 in the evening. Kathy remained at SM Aura to wait for her friend who will be arriving from Davao. I went home to Caloocan and arrived after midnight, what a great bonding with best friends!
