Dinner at Gerry's Grille, Promenade Greenhills


Watch short footages from the dinner itself here! (Or click the play button above)

What better way to end March than go to dinner and meet-up with people with the same passion as yours? It was really fun to finally meet the people behind the blogs that I follow/visit. The whole agenda was actually discussed in Twitter! Promenade, Greenhills was the chosen venue of the meet-up. I arrived at exactly 6:00AM but I had to walk to Promenade so that made me 4-8 minutes late. The first familiar faces I saw were MissCoryPotts, OhitsAndee, BeautifulLoft, and HazelSalcedo. It was really nice to see them especially Sabreenuh! Whoever thought she'd so so hyper and wacky all night? (I didn't!) Michelle, who I initially called "Beautiful Loft!" (hahaha) looked super pretty! Her complexion is just to die for! Hazel looked great as well! That was actually the first time I encountered HazelSalcedo. So we waited for the other bloggers to arrive...and waited...and waited....and finally decided to meet them at the restaurant instead. Earlier, Char tweeted "I hope everyone comes on time, I have to leave at 8." And behold, the beautiful Char arrived at exactly 6:35PM (I checked the time on the photo I snapped when she came in) Hahah! Only 35 minutes late! You wouldn't believe that this woman is married!!! She looks soooo young. "Baby face" as they call it. Ann was the latest!!! I think Ann was late for about an hour or so! Ann looked really beautiful! I especially liked her hair! 
So we ordered food! I decided on BBQ's and the rest of the group shared on group servings of  sisig and some kind of a pusit dish. We basically chatted the whole 2 hours or so away. It was really fun being able to talk to Char. I couldn't stop reading her blog when I came across her post about how much she loves dogs. Sabrina was all hyper that night! She didn't seem her age, as well! She totally looked 16. Hahaha. But if you have watched her Spillin' The Beans vlog Episode 2, you'd know that her age is.... (Watch here!) Andee looked super adorable and sweet! She is totally someone you can talk things with. She's intellectual! And she just graduated by the way! (Yey!) At this point, you might be wonderin' why I'm using exclamation points! Prolly because if I'd narrate this whole thing, I'd be all excited too--might as well show that in this entry!

Mich and Hazel looking through the menu! I hate how Gerry's Grille don't have individual meals. I don't know, it's just really inconvenient on my part when food is to be shared to people you're meeting for the first time. For instance, you ordered a whole dish of, say, beef casserole. And you have to divide for 5 people. How sure are you that each will be getting the same amount of food they'll be paying for? Like, 500/5=100, how sure are you that each will get P100.00 worth of that single group dish? Okay, weird me, weird me. I'm obsessive-compulsive like that. Plus, think about the bill. I think I'm just being overwhatever-ing but I'm sure some of you guys will agree with me!

Sabrina of MissCoryPotts 
The official wacky photo of the night! Sab looks totally wasted in here but she's not! That night I discovered how much of a high-spirited girl Sab is. So wonderful to have met her! It felt like meeting a sister or something. Haha!

Andee of OhItsAndee
Ohhhh it's Andee!!! This girl's got wits, I tell you. I don't know about you, but she looks really intelligent to me! And she speaks sense! Watch her videos on YouTube and you'll know what I mean. BTW, happy graduation, Andee!

 I think this is our first photo together! Is it, Sab? Hahah! There she goes again acting all wacky with the asian (aszhuunn) pose.

Char of YellowYum and Shopsui
Does this girl look married to you?! Meet Char! She's the owner of the online (&offline? haha) store, ShopSui! She basically wanted everyone to share about their passion...how it started and the likes. It was like talking to an ACHI! I'm sure Char would understand that one. I love this girl since she's a dog-lover!!! (like myself) I just have this weird attraction (not in a lesbian way when it comes to girls, okay?) when it comes to people who loooove dogs.

"Beautiful Loft!" Hahaha! So this is Michelle. I'm sure some of you already know her! What I really liked about this girl is her complexion! Aaaand we're of the same age.

 Here's our latecomer! Ann! Did you know she graduated with a BS in MATH (FREAKIN' MATH) with Applied Information Technology! Geeeez. It was just made a huge deal during dinner since...you know. MATH! Hahah! (Intelligent Math people, I know you can't relate!) I love her hair! Reminds me of mine, only her bangs are more cooperative. My baby bangs are always throwing  tantrums...

With Hazel and Sabrina
Hazel Salcedo! I know her as Hazel Anne Salcedo (am I even saying the right name?). She's such a nice lady! This is actually my first time hearing about Hazel! I'll tell you more about her when I get to read her posts on her blog!

Outfit of the night. White shirt+black blazer+jeans+slippers+printed scarf.
Bill exceeded a thousand (I'm guessing this is the reason?), thus we get free passes to the restroom! It was like highschool all over again!
