The 2 storey-5 bedroom penthouse at this appartment has been our temporary home in Penang for the past 8 months (but for my wife and kid, only after they’ve arrived last mid March).
Although Tina, Gabby and I are extremely excited to transfer to our “new home” before the month of July ends (oh yes, we thank the Lord we already found a new condo unit to rent- deposit given!), Gabby still likes it here because the place has swimming pool and playground too… nice, isn’t it?
Our little-big boy usually spends his afternoon frolicking in the pool.
But when a party for all Pinoys and our families was planned, the venue was hands down given to our colleagues’ ‘home-away-from-home’ called Kondominium Cassia at Raja Uda, Butterworth, Penang which has more gorgeous facilities than our present humble abode.
The Filipino MD-lecturers and our families opted for this beautiful resort-like appartment as the venue of our casual get-together party for our kids and some birthday celebrators few weeks ago.
Tina, Gabby and I didn’t miss the fun! We shared reasonable contribution for the party and even volunteered to bring 2 sets of these :
pâte de crevettes, mangues vertes et aubergines frites(sa madaling salita : homemade bagoong, hilaw na mangga at pritong talong!) Tina sauteed the shrimp paste, sliced the green mangoes and ehem, I fried the aubergine! sige na nga, pritong talong! LOL!
The get-together made us feel we are one with the world, hehehe… My wife felt she’s in a beauty pageant representing the Philippines…
Tina candidly told me that she could have won it effortlessly if there’s any pageant if the contest would give more points on talent portion rather than question and answer! haha! *nose bleed* daw sya, LOL!
Definitely, a party, simple or grand, would be incomplete without something to pig-out. The spread contained these yummies…
It felt like a feast for all of us Pinoys!
Tina and I didn’t take a dip (read : I was a cat in my past life, LOL!) so Gabby was accompanied by his floater and our colleagues at the pool.
The moment of being a kid again is priceless!
Life will be so much better if we can only live our lives as simple as children do. *easier said than done, though!*
Imagine a dreamy life where problems and hassles do not exist and all you need to do is to eat, smile and swim!
How is your summer or whatever season you’re having in your part of your world?
