:: VIDEOKE NIGHT! ::
I truly love this long weekend! It was well spent with the special people in my life.
Here are some elements that truly made my weekend great:
Friday: Driving with him to Tagaytay; dining and wining with him at Dencio's; strolling along Taal Vista Hotel with him; introducing him to my friends; bonding with Patty, Jen and Olen before sleeping at Royale Tagaytay
Saturday: Nice breakfast at the Velas; relaxing and lounging with Olen, Bim, Patty, Raymond, Jen and Deng in the morning; tripping to Caleruega with the family; dinner and coffee with the family; going on-line while the OC Sweetie is tinkering his car audio set-up.
Sunday Sleeping until I can't sleep anymore; going to mass with the family; dinner and drinking at Congo Westgate with Aileen, Charu, Jako and Kaloy; picture-picture whenever and wherever; endless videoke with the gang until the wee hours
Monday: Blogging; talking with him over the phone while raining outside; spending time with him at work; walking in the rain; singing in the rain; dinner at Friday's; quality time with him
I got a text from Aileen last Saturday inviting us to watch Nicholas Cage's National Treasure. As usual, she and Charo were the only ones who made it to the afternoon movie. The guys were still in deep slumber (because of previous night's drinking and bashing) while I was being my usual labo self.

I don't sing! I don't like videoke gimmicks. I detest singing in public. BUT I truly had one helluva singing night with the gang at OTB! I even found my signature song: Chaka Khan's Through The Fire. Yeaaah! (No wonder its raining hard today!)
SONGS OF THE NIGHT:
When I Met You
Through The Fire
Till My Heartaches End
I'll Never Get Over
Never Had A Dream Come True
Friend of Mine
You Won't See Me Crying
Out of Reach
Kahit Isang Saglit
This Guy's In Love With You, Pare
Dreaming of You
Each Day With You
For The First Time
