They have been trying to get me to hangout at Timog for over a month now. I've always said no because I live in the South and that was just too far for me. Besides, it will be at night and I didn't want to stay out too late.
I know, I know. What a dud right? Well, its not my fault that I've always preferred dinner, movie, and coffee over drinking. I mean, I have days where I'd want to drink but this can always be superseded by invitation of a decent dinner or coffee. I guess I'm boring that way.
Anyway, last night, since it was my good friend Neil's birthday, I decided to go ahead and meet them at Packo's in Timog. Luckily, a coworker took me there so I didn't even have to commute. Yey!
Thankfully, Jackie was also present and the others in the group made me feel welcome when I got there. It was nice seeing old friends and making new ones.
Being with the Chinese community again last night felt good. It felt like I was back in familiar territory. It was something that I was familiar with. It felt good.
Happy birthday Neil. I know that things are a bit tough but as you said, it will get better. Everything always does.
