short and sweet

I really don’t have friends who come over to visit me at work. I usually see them on weekends.

Imagine my surprise when I was told that one of my friends is dropping by to meet up/eat lunch together!

She is really the wife of Kei’s friend, who is my friend too!

I was really skeptical as to whether I am going to answer her text message. Since B. did not include her name, and this is the first time I got a text message from her… But, I am glad she did.

We had a simple lunch at my office canteen, and went on back to work after.

Such a sweet pick me up on the middle of the day.

Good old days

My sister made a lot of ice candy for us at home and as she offered me one, and I am suddenly filled with nostalgia.

I miss those carefree summer days, we would play from sunrise to sundown. And for the whole summer that we would have no allowance, we made ice candy to sell to other kids for profit and for our own tummies as well. Normally we make the ice candies as soon as my parents left for work in the morning, by early afternoon the ice candy is ready to be sold. It consists of fruit juice or chocolate milk and a lot of sugar, on rare occasions we used cola! Placed in small tubular plastic and frozen in the fridge. Very simple really but, we sold a lot. From our initial capital of 50 pesos we earned 300 pesos by the end of summer.  Not bad eh? It was our “monkey business” to get money to buy french fries and cheese sticks from the bakery near our house.

 

It is a sweet memory of our childhood days.

Oh, how I yearn for the simplicity of days that has gone by.
