My college block was a pretty tight-knit one. I think we started with about 33 folks during freshman year and graduated with 25 – 27 (I don’t know, I can hardly remember!) still in the same class. Most of us proceeded to law school after graduation. Isn’t that what’s expected of Political Science graduates after all? I soon realized fate had different plans for me. I dropped out after a semester, started working and never turned back. I do admit though there are times when I’d ponder what life might’ve been if I became a lawyer. Would I have passed the Bar considering I had poor study habits? Hah!
This year officially marks a decade since our college graduation. Yup, can you believe it? But people say we don’t look like we’re thirty! I’ll take that as a compliment, yes?
A grand reunion is in the works. But for now, random get-togethers are our thing. That’s what we love to do lately. Meet up for lunch or dinner and then spend the rest of the hours making random chitchats. Who says oldies can’t have fun, huh?
Lunch was at SME, an ESL school co-owned by a former classmate. We were merely saling-pu at an event for their team leads. Creative Cuisine catered and their Braised Noodles was awesome!
Word of the day was “IPARES”. Why? Ask the guy in red. :) Dexter never fails to dish out witty comments when you least expect it.
Our gracious host for that afternoon, Emmeline. Her husband is one of the partners behind SME Philippines Training Center. What a huge ESL school!
We capped it off with some donuts and coffee at Krispy Kreme in Ayala. This is it. I feel so grown-up hanging out with these folks.
