Anyway, the reason why I brought this up is because everyday, I wake up thankful for the friends who would continue to keep in touch. Their presence makes us feel like we're not miles and miles away. During one occasion, I was even able to witness a special moment in the life of my friend B who tied the knot with her prince charming P. I saw them exchange their vows and had their first kiss as husband and wife. Thanks to our friend K who connected me via Skype. I cheered and clapped as if I was also in the chapel with everyone else. Perhaps, if there was a camera aimed at me that moment, I would have looked extremely silly but that's okay. All I cared about was to be part of B's special day. B and K have been my good friends for years. We may not get to see each other on a weekly basis but every chance we get to hang out, I always go home with a big smile on my face. Being with them, even for a few hours, can immediately erase all the day's stress and worries away. Aside from that, we all share a love for food and eating out with them is just so much fun.
One dinner, we decided to meet up for some Spanish fare. Our choice venue was at Cova Tapas y Sangria which was relatively new then and was creating a buzz in the foodie community. I was also on a paella love phase back then thus the consecutive visits to different Spanish restaurants around town. Cova's ambiance is like a bar. Dark, modern and hip, it gives a very stylish vibe and a place where you can hang out with friends after work.
I'm so happy to be able to try Cova and would definitely go back, this time, to try their paella. Till our next dinner, girls!
