048. The Getaway Dinner: Cloud9 Resort

At work, my friends tease me a lot for not being out often. And if I do get out, I would have to give my parents advance notice. Lately, however, I get allowed out without the aforementioned advance notice, provided I have someone who goes home with me in the same direction (hope that makes sense, haha). 

Angel, my friend from work visited home from Japan (he's doing his Ph.D there), and as a treat, we went out to dinner to resort an hour away from my office (bad traffic included). There were five of us in the car, and it was an hour catching up.

An evening spent with my favourite people at work always makes me smile--and it did help me get through something I was dealing with days prior to the dinner. It reminds me that there are people who know me well, that they value me, and I will forever be grateful for that.

047. Sweets To My Sweet: The White Hat Sweets and Letters Calligraphy Workshop

Oops, this one's two weeks almost a month overdue!

On a sunny Saturday afternoon, I went to the White Hat Yoghurt store in Fully Booked at the Bonifacio Global City. I brought nothing but excitement and enthusiasm, having little or no knowledge at all about calligraphy, let alone ink calligraphy. But hey, part of life is learning something new, so why not learn something that might become some kind of skill in the future?

The workshop began with an introduction about the pen and the nib--and there are actually many kinds of nibs! Three of them are actually provided in our workshop kit.  The resource person was Ms. Fozzy Dayrit, and she was really awesome! She helped me find a better way to write because as a lefty, I had a difficult time writing properly, and the ink tended to blot on my drill sheets.

Sadly, I've lost all other pictures about this event, but it's possible that in future entries, I may document my progress in lettering and calligraphy!

Till then! :)
