Balikbayans Make Me Fat(ter)

Since June 21, I have been eating out with my sisters, non-stop... I doubt if my 1 year old baby still know who his mom is... My hubby also asks me when he's going to see me, I told him, he should've made appointments beforehand...

My sis' vacation is only 12 days... We just had to make the most out of it... Time flew so fast that on Sunday, she's leaving us again... The only thing that could make me "not cry" is to just think that the "eating days are over"... That I could go back to my old routine and South Beach Diet (which eventually turned to North Beach, jokes)...

Last Tuesday, we treated them at Pepper Lunch...

As I always say, I belong to the Chuvaness Army... Though I haven't seen her IRL... We do exchange comments on our sites but never got to be really acquainted... Somehow I had the impression that Cecile (Chuvaness) is a "socialite", and someone who doesn't speak Tagalog - it is because she is happily married to a Dutch Chef - Jeroen Van Straten...

Anyways, as I was guiding the Balikbayans on how to prep their steak, I saw Cecile and Chef Jeroen enter and talked to fine looking women across our table... I waited for Cecile to glance at our direction as I really planned on introducing myself to her... When she finally did, I waved at her and she walked at our table, I said, hi Cecile, I'm Jin... And guess what she said?!? Barrameda??? Oh my gosh, I thought I was going to faint... She knew my family name!!! When I said yes, she sat beside us and made a little chica... We told her that she's nice pala and she said, "oo naman, i am jologs, noh"... She is really, really funny...

When we were about to leave, she asked if I would like to have a picture with Jeroen... It is because I told her that my 6 year old daughter had a crush on him, (pinasa pa sa anak)... I was really hesitant because Jeroen looked busy, and of course, he's a private individual, not a celebrity, plus, he's white, I don't know if it is annoying for him to do so... But Jeroen stood and went up to me, we shook hands, and posed for the camera... He even bent down so that we could fit in the frame because he is really tall... After the shot, he said, one more, it may not work, and he looks really cool!!!
Now I have 2 pictures with him...



The most amazing part is when we said goodbye, he kissed me... Hayyyyy.... Nakakahiya because I said, oh my God, may kiss pa ako!!! Shocks, I forgot he doesn't speak Tagalog...

I heart this couple. They made my day...
