My ASB family members are Ms. Ann, Maya, Matess and Be.
We were all officemates once upon a time. I was the Executive Secretary to VP Ms. Ann. That was my longest job I've ever held!
Five whole months! I resigned because I did not want to join the Christmas program. We were going to perform a dance number!
Even if I have been with them for such a short time, we kept the friendship alive for 22 years.
Back to the present, tonight's dinner was also the birthday celebration of Maya, Be and Matess.
Ms. Ann got us a cake!
Maya and Be brought Korean food.
Korean Fried Chicken
Matess got us assorted Maki.
My dinner contribution was Korean BBQ.
I cooked it while we were eating dinner.
The ingredients were bought at Hangbok's Korean Grocery on Don Pedro St. Poblacion. I got the tender beef and marinade for the Bulgogi. ( Marinate 1 kilo of beef in 1 C. marinade for an hour.)
The Korean lady is very nice. The last time I bought soy sauce, she gave me a pack of Perilla leaves for the Samyeopsal. I could never forget the thoughtful gesture. I was on my way out when she called me back. The leaves only cost 35 pesos but she just earned a returning customer for life!
I am so grateful my former co-workers are my friends.
What they say is really true. It is not about how long you've known a person (in my case just for 5 months) but the quality of relationship you have with the person.
I have a quality relationship with my ASB Family.
Happy birthday ladies!
