Shi Lin: Authentic Taiwanese Cuisine

This day marked our 21st wedding anniversary. My hubby surprised me with a water getaway not today but tomorrow since he wanted our kids and my mother to celebrate this special occasion with them.

Dinner at Mesa Filipino Moderne, Greenbelt 5, Makati City

It’s Amy’s birthday today and she will treat us for dinner. Some of my care bear co-members (my office mates in reality) are elated to go back to Dampa in Macapagal Boulevard for seafood delight. But Amy declined because we had frequented the area from several past occasions. She wanted to eat something new this time.

Friday Night at Mexicali, Glorietta 2

In our 2015 Volleyball tournament, the Blue team defeated the Violet team for second place (which was US. Huhuhu). Shiela, being one of the star players of the Blue team was teased by my teammates, Joyce, Arriane, and Rose for a treat. It was so early to celebrate for they have to beat the White team in the championship. But surprisingly, she did. I was told by Joyce, it wasn’t the winning, but the friendship. I was deeply touched for I was included and was thanking in advance.

Audit season has ended, and so for us the Finance team, this is the time to unwind, chill and relax.
