Catching-up Fridays is about invigorating friends.
I met up with Lette prior to an early morning flight to Caticlan. We met up in Greenbelt, Makati after I finished work in Laguna. Simple joys filled the afternoon: book cover browsing at Fully Booked, happy hour at Spicy Fingers, and Milo Dinosaurs at Kopi Roti before she met up with Mary for the evening screening of Toy Story 3.
The succeeding Friday (July 2, 2010) brought about a spontaneous meet-up at Le Bistro Vert, the venue of the #T13Tweetup. I was invited by Janette via a late Thursday tweet. It was great to finally see Ms. Chit Juan, who manages Le Bistro Vert and Echostore.
I intended to go to the cafe during the previous weekend to drop off some samples from Carmel's Food Products that she might be able to use for her menu. The two ladies were enjoying some red wine with thin kamote chips with aioli, and Janette was explaining the benefits of Foursquare for business owners.
We also tried some Caviar Pinoy on toasted ciabatta.
Kevin, fresh from a Vietnam work trip, dropped by after his dinner meeting with Kristin and Rochelle. Banana mojito shots were served shortly, and to my surprise, the ladies out-drank the men.
If you're weakened by the week or if your spirit is running on empty, plan an early Friday happy hour or night-out with friends and revive your energy. Cheers!
