(Photos were taken weeks before. My models were Badz (on green blouse) and Melowdee, my office buddies. Venue was at old office of DAR XI, which is currently demolished and employees transferred to their new home)

Without them I will be bored to death with office life. At least, If I have no Travel Orders for Project inspections with the Consultants, we’ll be sharing our lunch and chatting would follow with huge laughters like no one else is around the canteen. Some good old days to remember. And After office? We got food trips, Malling, Gym and Sauna Sessions. I miss them! *sigh*

But because DAR-MinSSAD Project is about to end, manpower were cut down. Badz, ended her contract last Nov 15 while Melowdee detailed temporarily at DAR & SANYU Offices in Quezon City for the closing of the accounts for the consultants. And me, to  finish the attachments for the terminal reports for the Infrastructure components.

We got to update each other through SMS or with YM. And much excitement for the near church wedding of badz and her boyfriend on the 23rd of December in time that Melowdee will be back on 4am flight same day. I sense foodtrips again and city escapades.

I’m having countdowns, and busy sighting for my outfit for badz special day! yeyyy. They normally joke on me that I am a guy because I don’t used to wearing dress. This time I will have to, and so, for this coming Dec 17, Christmas Party for MinSSAD Project at the Waterfront Hotel, with 16 Mayors, Project Managers and VIPs, wahhhh  I am having a real big problem. Good luck on me. he! he!

The Boodle Fight

Posted in Engineering, Feasts/Party, Food with tags , , , on July 4, 2008 by engrlouraine

We went to Laak, Campostela Valley for MinSSAD Sub-Projects Turnover last July 1, 2008. A ride from Davao City is about three hours on a long rough road. My back is a bit aching due to humps of the road but is certainly a real great ride.

One thing that I remember most about the trip is the experience of boodle fighting. The fight isn’t like that of boxing. Boodle fighting is a military style of eating.Three long table were prepared and food are on top of the banana leaves. Viands and rice ready to eat using your bare hands. Of course jugs of water are prepared on the side for us to wash our hands before the combat. With the signal to start the boodle fight everyone had their position. Yeba! Ready get set, go!

Below are the photos as evidences. (Laughing out Loud)
