SEMPhil Kids at Banana Leaf

Last Saturday, I met up with two of my college classmates and a former colleague from SEMPhil. Well, we were all actually employed at that company at some point and Jozen was the only who opted to stay. It's been so long since we saw Jozen! Here are the pictures!

Jozen, Roch and I met up first at Greenbelt and bought the tickets for the 7:00 pm screening of Sherlock Holmes 2. We also grabbed a quick bite and a coffee fix since we were waiting for Fritzie who'll be hailing from Greenhills. I think it's been a year since I left the company and it felt good to hear stories about people who stayed there. I actually miss these people. And I also loved the gossip! >:D

"Ang taba mo!" -- Jozen's (in button down blouse) first three words when she saw me. Haha!
After an hour or so of updates and chit-chat, we went right on to the movie screening. I never watched the first installment of Sherlocke Holmes but I still did enjoy the movie. Robert Downey, Jr. was just hilarious. Hahaha. Can't forget the scene where he dressed up as a woman and of course, his camouflages!

Banana Leaf was the chosen restaurant to have our dinner.

I especially enjoyed the spicy flat noodles that Fritzie chose (food from her childhood~) but to be honest I don't remember the names of the dishes. Haha. So, clockwise, spicy flat noodles with shrimp, fried Tilapia in creamy white sauce and fried rice, the clam dish (I didn't taste this one) and my banana leaf plate filled with all the yummy Asian food goodness.

You should definitely try the flat noodles dish! I loved it. I don't like spicy dishes (well, except for this and Bicol Express) but this got me going to try other yummy spicy food out there! The fried rice was also very good, there were little bits of jam-packed salty flavor that pops in your taste buds every time making the fried rice more enjoyable, I'm not really sure though if those were anchovies or diced deep fried pork.

There was actually a group picture but it was so blurred.

We called it a night around 11:00 pm. I had so much fun and I wish we could do it again soon! Time flies so fast and a lot of things change but I'm so glad we could stop, see each other and catch up as if we've just seen each other yesterday. :)
