pinoy party

This picture was taken at a friend’s place yesterday. With summer temperatures upon us, four Filipinos gathered one Thursday afternoon for a grill party (sausages, steak, and tilapia!). Mark, the host, even made tocino, a popular stuff of breakfasts in the Philippines. It’s cured pork, that’s similar to ham, only reddish, sticky and sweet. Thanks to the worldwide presence of ready-to-use Mama Sita mixes, I would be able to make this one at home, too.

As the day rolled on, we brought out the karaoke microphone and rocked one danceable tune after another. Everybody was off their seats and dancing! As if that wasn’t enough exercise, we then had a volleyball game on Mark’s huge yard. I haven’t played volley in a long time and so my arms were a wee bit in pain today. It was fun though.

And oh, that big dog. He’s Hugo – and huge! He’s smart and playful, he liked Fetch the most. Neil and I were taking turns throwing a tree stick for him to fetch. You could tell we grew tired quicker than the dog. So that was my day yesterday. If the weather permits, I’d go sunbathing tomorrow. Lots of Norwegians go out and strip down during this time, and you’ll see them everywhere – on the beach, in the park, on the wharf, even here in our courtyard. Time to bring out the camera! :) Have a great weekend everyone!

    @ Fendi – you’re going to the Philippines?!? Aaargh! Have a great time! I’m not a big fan of Dima this year, he was WAAAy better in 2006. Poor Charlotte, after all her promotion and hardwork, Europe didn’t bite.
