Lunch With Miss Elle

At first it was Caramel Macchiato waiting for me on my office desk yesterday morning, and then an email inviting me to have lunch with her at the nearby Sushi Restaurant. Hmmm, what is going on here?

Needless to say, I accepted the invitation and had lunch with my boss, Miss Elle. This is the first time I’m going out with her and it’s sort of uncomfy at first. But soon as we gave each other a big warm hug and had a wacky conversation. All the unpleasantries were gone in an instant.

Lunch was great and we had a fabulous time reminiscing our verbal spats at work. We were laughing out loud and was absolutely amused of our foolishness. And after a good hour of fun, we got up from our seats, gave each other another hug and said our thank you’s. It sure is nice to finally break that barrier between us, and calling each other friends

    Sounds like a good start. I was very good friends with my boss and I feel that it’s actually nice to go back to your lives as social people after work. The food looks devilishly delish!

    it is, mark. and i’m excited what this budding friendship has enstore for us. oh yah, you love japanese food hah. i had the the under the sea lunch special from the nearby japanese resto while miss elle had the spicy tuna, then we both share the chirachi don. and you’re right, it was devilishly delish 😉

    Hello Nell . . . sounds like a wonderful beginning between you and your boss. I’m happy for both of you! Speaking of Japanese Food and Alameda, have you gone to Sushi House across from the beach in Alameda. Also, did you go to Beverly’s to buy the beads. Remember, I’m nosey! 😉 Well, Alameda Towne Centre is my hang-out. Ha! Ha! One last thing before I forget . . . I know you know Ray’s Sushi and there’s that other one on Hesperian Blvd. called Tomoguchi’s, ba? See, I’m always thinking of food! Let’s do sushi soon! 🙂

    hello lulu. i am really hoping that this good relationship i have with my boss right now would flourish para wala na akong kinaiinisan. dba?

    and how did you know that i went to beverly’s? my oh my, are you psychic my dear? hehehe, i did went there to look at some of there stuff and even bought some fabrics to make bed covers for the cats. and eventually drove to park street to see the bead selections at this specialty store. and i wasn’t too happy na nalagasan ako almost seventy bucks, hahahaha! ayan kasi, napamahal tuloy, hehehe.

    i’m starting to think that we’re sisters in food and restos, hahahah. have you been to ray’s sushi? i like ray’s better than tomaguchi’s (the one by toys r us near sizzlers), cause kilala na kaming mga magkaka office mates doon and somehow they know what i’d like to order. halata bang patron? hahahaha! besides that tomaguchi’s a bit pricey for my wallet. sensya na at nagtitipid ang beauty ko, hehehe.

    so, ray’s sushi tayo one of these days 😉

    Oh e di vah, nothing like a bowl full of that whateverlunch you had would not make better *lol* (ano daw sabi ko? ha ha ha!)

    Ahahay at bati na pala kayo Nya..I hope tuloy-tuloy na kasi talagang masarap magtrabaho na ok ang kasama mo di ba? less stress, more chika ha ha!

  6. sardonicnell · February 1, 2008

    hahahah! i’ve missed so much, sis thess. hope you had a wonderful week end retreat with charlies and your dearest hubs 😉

    speaking of miss elle, para nga akong nabunutan ng tinik sa lalamunan. at least ngayon eh wala na kaming communication barrier between us at maybe this will lessen our verbals spats, hahahah. totoo yang sabi mo sis, less stress talaga at sagana sa chikahan. hahahah :mrgreen:

    all work stuff, joy. like my budget proposal, financial reports, her way of handling employees etc. naku, too many to mention, hehehe. but at least okay na kami and we don’t have to hate each other 😀

    ps: we had unagi, cali roll, spicy tuna and nigiri sushis 😉

  9. Meeya · February 1, 2008

    i’m so happy for you dito sa latest development na ito. 🙂 sana tuloy-tuloy na.

    i miss miss miss japanese food. super ganda naman ng presentation niyan, parang fresh na fresh. parang ang friendship niyo – fresh start. naks! 🙂

  10. sardonicnell · February 1, 2008

    thank you, meeya. i’m also flattered sa mga developments na nangyari. just like this morning, pinasa ko yong revised na budget proposal. she asked a couple questions and she signed it. grabe, bilis ng approval. hahahah! sana nga po eh magtuloy tuloy etong pagkamaigihan namin.

    as for the japanese food, the sushi was fresh and delish to the max. and i’m definitely going back for more come payday, hahahah. thanks for your kind comment sis. have a wonderful week end :mrgreen:

    Nell, you forgot one thing . . . we’re “sisters” when it comes to stores too! I know exactly the bead store you are talking about on Park Street in Alameda, called “Bead Inspirations”. It’s like on the corner next door to that Chinese Buffet resto called Ghengis Khan. Am I good or what! 😉 Sabi ko sa yo when it comes to “shopping” (for anything) I know all within a 100 mile radius. Ha! Ha! Like you, I prefer Ray’s Sushi over Tomaguchi’s. My bro had introduced us to Ray’s Sushi years ago. Sige, we’ll do Ray’s Sushi then at another time and we’ll do Sushi House in Alameda. We can browse around Beverly’s. Ok … now to get on with the “real” post. I do hope your relationship with your boss will be a very positive one! All the best to you 😉

  12. sardonicnell · February 2, 2008

    hahaha, oo nga lulu. looks like your my long lost but now found sister, hahaha! you really know your shops from a hundred mile radius or even more. anong laban ng internet at mall map sayo, hehehe. bead inspiration on park, that’s where i was not too long ago. hunting for more beads, yet again. sige at planuhin natin ang ray’s sushi or sushi house meet up natin. and then we’ll explore the malls for a delightful shopping experience, hahaha.

    thanks so much for your comment, lulu. i am crossing my fingers that this new friendship and renewed working relationship with miss elle would turn our real well. para naman mabawasan ang drama sa buhay ko, dba? have a wonderful week end my dear and start writing that letter for jp. love yah lots, mwaaah :mrgreen:

  13. bw · February 4, 2008

    Great that both of you buried the hatchets 🙂 It’s time for a new relationship.

    I love that Japanese food bro – so crisp and fresh looking – it made me hungry 🙂

  14. sardonicnell · February 4, 2008

    thanks bw. im very happy as well that were able to leave the past behind and build us a new relationship. this time, peaceful na sya syempre. hahahah! you love japanese food as well, that was lunch for miss elle and myself. and syempre, we didn’t have any left overs, hahahah :mrgreen:
