I don’t talk much about my personal life here on my blog. (Hypocrite alert)
I don’t post much of my pictures here. (Hypocrite alert)
I’m not a selfie-sh person you know. (Liar)
But this is something I love to share and it requires pictures. For my blog’s sake, I really have to do it. (Convince me more please)
Do you believe that magical things happen outside of your smartphones, tabs, and computers?
I know this is a very sensitive topic and requires more faith to believe in my opinion but yes, it happens. This is not another propaganda to stop clash of clans or any addicting online games.
This is more about having quality time. More about enjoying the mocking and insult of your friends more than viewing VP Binay’s meme on Facebook and meeting new people, physical friends with real hands to shake on. Enjoying the brewed coffee (and that yummy and smart coffee guy who talks about gases and 3rd wave coffee. Lols) Learning about the chemex and v60 and how can wrong stirring makes your coffee taste bad.
Actually, this was a despidida party for my boss. Well, as usual, it never goes the way we plan it but still, it turns out amazing. 🙂
We should have rented a KTV bar but we decided to go on Samurai (Seafood resto) and have coffee after.
(At the right, the girl with a mint green blouse that’s me and across my seat was Ma’am Novem.)
From a different batch of OJTs and SEO member who come and go, we have gathered a few of them for this night and I know it wasn’t my convincing skills that make them go. It was HER. And what she did with this people that they decided to come to the party.
Maybe she had passed a tuna sandwich on their desk too and put a charm on it. The same reaction and symptoms that are apparent to me. Just kidding. 😀
(That’s us, listening to the coffee guy and Chemex whatsoever. LOL)
I remember her saying ‘when you do good to others, it will always come back to you.’
She’s right. Just like what happened tonight. They have gathered for her because she is worth everyone’s time. Well, she doesn’t need to be interviewed or be given a few questionnaires to be declared a good boss. It was self-evident enough. No need of further explanation. 🙂
The meet up was so cute that everyone was not that acquainted with everyone. I hope you get it.
To elaborate everything, the first wave of zombies were April and Lorelyn. I mean the first batch of OJTs. As they handed down the throne, Ronel and I were like the second wave. Yeah, brains are delicious. Just Kidding. And we were all under Ma’am Novem’s supervision. How amazing is that more zombies were being produced. (This reminds me of my sunflower head dress during paintopia. Embarrassing.)
SEO family was extended. The night was loaded with Cheryle’s laughter, Inchik amusing behavior, Ronel’s sugar spills on the table (thought this should be a secret), Hera was hailed selfie girl of the year and Lore claims her title as Little Miss Philippines and oyster and more oyster.
Finally, Reyshimar had found a girl counterpart, with Jan Marie’s identity. They are both writers and yeah, it insecure me a little bit but I’m good with what I’m doing now. Still, I don’t close that door of being an author. Ambitious frog.LOL
Jhon was still weird. Always staring at his phone and smiling like a duck. Bully time. 😀 Ka-Law love team still rocking on the stream, giving extra sweetness in the atmosphere. With all those Karen’s punch thrown over to Lawrence shoulder. haha
And me was like, observing everyone, taking down notes on what was everyone’s doing. @_@ No don’t get paranoid, I was just joking. Hehe
I was just happy. Wishing there could be more of these events in my life.
The night was full of realization but the very lesson I learned about is that
‘It takes one good tuna sandwich for a boss to keep her people.’
