PAMATAY SA TAGAYTAY

There's none on earth that's as refreshing and as stress-busting than an enjoyable get-away with extremely hilarious and rib-tickling friends, and to rejoice with them in the hour of great happiness. weeeeeeWe had advance and post-natal day celebrations for our dearest friends (Ice, Dioko, Avel and my sister Lai) which meant night long videoke kantahan and tawanan and kalokohan (and ahitan..hehehe.. joke lang) Tagaytay was the chosen venue, maiba naman dahil nakakasawa na din sa pansol, calamba! ahihihi.

We took a less than hour trip to Tagaytay Saturday night after the whirling mass of confusing details circulated in the yahoo group. Like Sir Jovi, i am as confused as he is as to whether the yahoo group does great help in our communication, or it would be hell a lot better if communications would just revert back to the text-text-na-lang style, mas nagkakaintindihan pa daw sa ganun. bwahahah. In fairness to our moderator Sec Jen, we take our hats off for her bold effort in creating our Yahoo Group. It's just that maybe, we really are too occupied with so many things... we tend to read e-mails in order of the most recent received ones, and so the details tend to get jumbled. Bwahahaha. Nakakalurky.
After the razzmatazz, the group headed to Caleruega for the Sunday Morning Mass. (The place itself is my respite, i love Caleruega.) The devil then succeeded in intercepting our sanctified union with the Holy spirit when we girls almost swooned upon the sight of one of the priests, Rev. Fr. Stephen Redillas. I bet most of the people near us who have been solemnly placing themselves in the presence of the Almighty have been distracted also upon hearing us murmuring "Si Fr. Stephen ba un?" and seeing us all in our beautiful eyes while staring at one of the priest officiating the mass. Fr. Stephen used to be the apple of our eyes back when we were in college. Major kilig nga e. Ahihihih. After the mass, i approached Father and told him, "Father, pa bless po." I reached for his hand while he was placing his right palm on my forehead. Sir Jovi kidded me that i should have told father instead "Father, pa-touch po." Tsk tsk. Sir, ang bastos naman naman nun. hahaha.


We were also served lunch at Caleruega c/o Jackie, and indeed, the meals served (kalderetang baka, veggie salad with vinegrette, soup, and banana) were indeed scrummy! (yummyness mode)
On our way home, we took a stop at Amira's house of Pastries and Bag of Beans, where i had a pack of Cinnamon Bread freshly baked to scrummy appetite domination! I got to roam also on their dining garden where my eyes feasted on the ornamental grounds laid out for relaxation and enjoyment.Amidst the minute details that didn't go well exactly as planned, we really had a superb time... another footnote to the annals of our infinite bond.

I think Fr. Stephen is the one in this video I made. He is now Prior of The Shrine of Our Lady of Manaoag. Follow this link... http://vimeo.com/11319858
