lovely lunch at Old Vine, Eastwood

Today is friendship day!

I had lunch with two of my best friends, Cielo and Louie at Old Vine in eastwood. The place is lovely with its high ceiling and walls adorned with beautiful paintings. The lunch is Louie's treat to celebrate his birthday, and this is day two of the celebration! Lucky me to be at both lunches!

For starters, we ordered pan seared tuna which was so delicious! It melts in your mouth. Then a big serving of the trio salad made of romaine lettuce, shrimp, shitake mushroom and escargot. The dressing was light. Cielo ordered the petite fillet mignon with baked potatoes and buttered veggies. Iouie got the peppered steak with mashed potatoes and side salad. I opted to just order the creamy vegetable soup instead of an entree. I still feel full from the lunch yesterday!

In between chews and bites, we shared endless stories, jumping from one topic to another. New stories, old stories. Every now and then I couldn't help but comment on how good Louie's skin has been lately!

When I'm with Cielo, I find myself always talking about Malaysia. I guess because that's where my friendship with Cielo really started to deepen.

I wish I finished my errands early in the morning so I didnt have to rush ending lunch. Good thing, the exchange of fun stories just started to heat up so to continue it, Cielo and Louie offered to bring me to makati, with a stop at ford's showroom. I cancelled the trip to makati because of traffic. Instead, the three of us headed to Cafe Mary grace at Serendra for hot chocolate, cheese roll, cheesecake and more stories!

Oh and during lunch time, we agreed to go out every 2nd friday of the month to do this all over again! can't wait for the next date with two my best buddies.
