Dinner with the Peredos

November 03, 2012

It is always a pleasure to discover that friends whom you haven't seen in a long time are now back in town.  You would heaven and earth to be able to meet up with them just for the pleasure of being with them even if it's just a short while.  Filipinos will probably agree with me that when balikbayans come home, there schedules are so hectic, it's like they're celebrities with everyone wanting a chance to be with them from here to there :) You suddenly have a lot of family to be with.

Well, when Keith and Janice came home, Patrick was ecstatic so say the least.  It has been a long time since he last saw the couple and it was poignant for him too that he wasn't there when they got married.  At least, this time, they were back and he didn't intend to miss the opportunity.  So off we went to Keith's house in Project 2 for dinner.

It was the perfect timing too because it was the semestral break so the kids were able to come with us.  Dana is Keith's godchild and he wasn't here when Dana got baptized so this will be their first time seeing her.  It will also be the first time we're seeing Kayla, Jan and Keith's first child :)

So we arrived early and the kids were immediately enamored of the tree deck and were letting their imaginations run wild!  The evening was spent catching up on years of news and reminiscing about fun older times.  The food was superb! The drinks free-flowing.  We had so much fun it was already 3AM when we all went home.  :)

We all hope that it doesn't take another 10 years before we see each other again, Keith and Jan! Johann we missed you this time! :)
