Jerry and I are trying to establish a pattern of eating out every Friday since I started working again. Today was no exception. This time, we tried La Tegola at Mactan, an Italian restaurant where we shared a plate of seafood pasta (marinara) and bruschetta.
For an Italian restaurant, La Tegola’s pizza wasn’t all that expensive. Our total food bill just amounted to about P300 without drinks.
Now try buying pizza for the same price at Pizza Hut, Greenwich or Shakey’s and I’ll say it’s not even half as good as what we had. Wanna bet?

I flew to Manila this afternoon for a week of training at our company’s Paranaque head office. It’s been a long time since I went on an official trip and I was quite hesitant to leave my boys, especially Jake, who was still taking his antibiotic for loose BM. But this was something I had to do. Boo. I left after making sure that Jake was a little better and not after Jerry assured me everything would be fine.

Today was the 1st day of orientation for new hires. Even if I got on board last May 16, I still had to attend this mandatory course/training like the rest. There were about 50 attendees from the different companies under the group.
There were interesting facts about the company that I learned. And I keep learning about new things and the company’s culture as each day at work unravels. With what has been said about the group so far, I think it’s safe to say I’m in good hands.
