Every once in awhile when all our schedule permits it, my group of mom friends from BSM (British School Manila) class 2012, meet up for lunch. We make it a point to get together since all our kids are studying abroad and to ease our loneliness we see each other and exchanged stories. But even before when our kids were still in high school we already had lunches together when everyone is free.
And our kids altho they’re all scattered everywhere they also have reunions during their school breaks. Recently they had a UK reunion (kids that are studying in UK), USA reunion and Canada reunion.
Yesterday Karen Young hosted our lunch in her beautiful house.
L to R (Back row): Me – My son Vito is in UBC, Ann Marie Yu – her daughter Kat is also in UBC, Lin Yao – her son Mark is in Harvard, Joanne Oca – her daughter Isabella is in La Salle Taft, Shera Limandibrata – her son Michael is in Stanford University, Angeline Tan – her daughter Mikee is in Wharton & Karen Young (our host) – her son Kristoffer is also in UBC.
L to R (seated): Maricar Zaldarriaga – her son Paolo is in Yale, Jops Melrose – her son Daniel is in a University in UK, the name of the school slipped my mind, Hera Geriene – her daughter Mara is in a theater school in NYC & Emmy Dee – her son Francis is in Iowa State University.
Thanks Hera for the group picture!
Karen prepared a very yummy lunch. Among other food she had seafood paella using quinoa. It was really good!
She prepared pasta with different sauces. Yummy!
and different cheese.
The pumpkin soup was really good too!
More pics during lunch:
And there was 1 picture that was very interesting cause both our kids had the same picture taken a few months ago. Exact pose!
Me & Maricar Zaldarriaga and our sons Vito & Paolo!
Anyway, we had fun (like we always do) and our next get together is sometime in May (when everyone is in town) to be held in Joanne Oca’s beach house in Kawayan Cove. I’m so excited cause it’s going to be overnight.
It’s the onset of summer and it has been in the 30’s C this week. I had a quick halo halo fix in Milkyway this afternoon! The most delicious halo halo in the entire universe!
Have a great week end everyone! Stay happy.
