I Met The Monk!
Aha! I already met the monk! The monk is Dom Lawrence, OSB, a monk-blogger I met a few weeks ago. Wow kuya, it WAS just a few weeks ago nga ano? And yet, it felt like we’ve been friends for so long…
So he went home for some family matters and have emailed and texted us that we ought to see each other nga raw. It was supposed to be last August 26, a Sunday, because the next day was a holiday. Unfortunately, I forgot about it. Hahahah… Di ko raw kasi hawak ang buhay ko… hawak daw ng blog ko buhay ko! Hahahah… Si kuya talaga! He met with ironnie and jeprocks. Sayang, met them na rin sana.
So we re-set our EB and saw each other last September 4 at The Block. We were supposed to see each other by 11am. We were texting and he said that he’s already at the MRT. 12nn, I was wondering what happened to him na. Duda ko naligaw… naligaw nga! Hahaha… I was laughing so hard when I got his text message… naligaw nga sya. Kasi naman sabi ko SM North Edsa, ang sinabi sa babae sa MRT SM West!!! Hahahah katawa talaga. And he was not even telling me that he didn’t know how to go to the place. Saka I didn’t know he’ll be coming from Cavite pa hehe.
Sabi ni kuya… It’s embarrassing to get lost in your own native land.
I still laugh whenever I remember that. So ang 11am namin naging 1pm. You’re probably thinking bakit naman kasi 11am, too early… kasi I got forewarned that kuya is makwento. So I figured, kulang 1 araw sa aming dalawa kung ganon! Hahaha… And I am right! Goodness, ang ingay namin sa Burgoo! We were laughing and mas nabusog ako sa tawa kesa sa kinain namin hahahah…
Si kuya, texting lang ang pahinga! As in promise! Hahahaha
Our lunch ended at around 4pm. 3 hours of chikahan! I bet the Burgoo staff near us were relieved when we paid the bill already. Umalis na yung 2 maingay! Hahahah
We went to kuya/Br. Vince‘s place afterwards. From SM North Edsa to Marikina. Kahit sa cab ang ingay namin. Natahimik kami when we arrived at kuya Vince’s place kasi may mass sila sama kami. Pagpasensyahan nyo na ang aking malaking mukha dyan hehehe.
Unfortunately, konting chika lang with kuya because after dinner, he still had to attend a meeting.
Our night was not yet through, though… It was just 8pm. I was telling kuya about my friends near my place, Wendy and Karen. So he said that he also wanted to meet them. Ayun, off we went to QC again. And this time, we went to Wends and Karen’s office. Dun naman kami nanggulo.
Then we went to Shakey’s Banawe to eat (again). Dun naman kami uli nag-ingay… Sobrang saya kasama ni kuya! As in no dull moment talaga. We parted ways past 11pm na… back to work the next day so we had to go home early. He’s also meeting some friends.
Rebecca and ironnie are right, he is the coolest monk ever! Notice how he smiles? Contagious!
It was so much fun being with you kuya! Classic ang stories sobra! Hahahah… Twas a blessing meeting you online. Twas even more when I met you in person. It was worth it, being away from the internet for almost 1 whole day and you know how much I loath being away, right? Hahahah… Hay Bluepanjeet, sayang kapatid you didn’t get to meet kuya in person. Next time ha… 🙂
