Trip to Heaven and Beyond

One starry evening last February, my friends from my previous work invaded our house and bunked in my room. Since not everyone could fit in our house, as they also bought their babies along, the hubbies of my girl friends made do with whichever space was available - the couch, the floor, and inside the car.

It was a crazy, laughter-filled night, and at 3 am, our eyes were starting to close by themselves.  Our plan the next morning was to go to Pink Sisters and eat bulalo in Tagaytay.

The next morning, we went to Tagaytay and passed by the Pink Sisters (Holy Adoration Sisters) for quick, solemn and much-needed reunion with Him.  It was like a trip to Heaven.  After our spiritual bonding moment, we checked out the items for sale in Pink Sisters' store and my friends, every crazy about "friendship items" bought a friendship ring.  It is silver and gold (though plated only) with three crosses etched on it.  Joy bought me one as a gift (thanks Juyjuy).

We then had breakfast in one of those restaurants with Bahay Kubos near the Mahogany Market and without Abby's consent, proceeded to her home in Lemery, Batangas.  We then went to the Leisure Farm to check out the place.

After lunch, some friends had their own appointments and though they wish they had more time, they had to go back to the "city".  So off they went with a promise that they will soon come back in complete attendance, and including the kids who weren't brought along so that our kids would be friends too.

It was a tiring weekend, but it was a blast!  When's the next?
