Direk Archie Barcelona, my usual director for my fashion shows went home on December 21 just to have a mini reunion with us. He is based from the US and he still has work there and just made a short trip back home just to visit friends and family. We ate at my usual hideaway at Scout Borromeo, a Thai restaurant along that street.

Direk Archie loves to buy chocolates, in fact he had one balikbayan box full of chocolates. He gave me about 10 packs where I gave 2 packs to Ate Maritess, 1 to Alec and to Ken.
The forced flash did not work, but it is still a beautiful picture.
So what did we ate?
Shrimp soup, this is very delicious although the picture says otherwise.
Tender beef, the meat is very soft and has the right amount of taste.
Another picture of the beef, it's mouthwatering to look at.
My favorite, baked tahong. I'm addicted to this.
The soup can be shared and the waiters divide this for you.
Chicken curry. This taste good but my companions did not really like this kind of food. Will not order this next time.
Bagoong rice. Yummy, yummy rice.

The drink by the way is Thai ice tea. I just love drinking this tea. I used to have a restaurant and I served this tea. It's difficult to make but it's worth it.
Our lunch finished around 3pm, just in time for my 3pm client.
Direk Archie will head off to Davao at night time to visit his family there. We just spent a little bonding at the studio after.
