One Lovely Saturday With Lovely FriendsThursday, June 23, 2011 Mary Anne Velasco
There are only five of us from the Philippines who are currently living here in our town and so far I’ve only met two of them, Sherlyn and Mercy. Mina who lives in another area drops by once in awhile to be with us. It’s such a wonderful feeling to be able to get together with these wonderful people.
11 June 2011 – I finally got the chance to meet up with my Pinay friends! The heavens were generous to us the whole day. It was part sunny, part cloudy --- perfect for a Saturday stroll.
The day before, we decided to meet up at ten in the morning inside a second hand shop near the downtown district. Aside from Mercy who was in time, Mina, Sherlyn and I arrived almost an hour later. The next sixty minutes or so were spent inside the second hand store. We went out with nothing and agreed to take a walk to our next destination, the supermarket.
Along the way, we spent a few minutes taking photos together.

Mercy, Mina and Sherlyn
Mina did some grocery shopping. She wanted to cook chicken soup with glass noodles and lamb afritada for the gang’s lunch. We then headed to Sherlyn’s apartment and helped Mina in the kitchen. Lunch was delightful as expected.
While savoring scoops of ice cream for dessert, we watched Ang Tanging Ina Mo [Last Na ‘To!]. The day was filled with fun and laughter!
In a month’s time, we’ll be together again! Movies, food, picture-picture and a bit of karaoke. Can hardly wait!
