An evening of rockin’ and rollin’

-->

Last Friday, the accommodating (ahem!) other half of mine conceded to my whim over again. I was promised an evening out so I took it seriously and marked my calendar for the Friday date with him. TGIF came and I was already preparing for our night out when I thought of calling him to confirm where and what time we would meet. But the enthusiasm turned into disappointment when I learned that he was about to go out with his colleagues(again!). It was a total bad trip! “No way!” I told myself. I was very upset but I don’t want to sulk in one corner and spoil my time, while he paints the town red.
“Meet me at the usual place. I’m about to leave now!” was my text message to him. When I arrived at the place, he was already waiting. Hurray! My anticipated “night out” materialized though in a shot gun manner. Ha ha. Who cares?! He supported my whims and didn’t become a KJ anyway. I’m happy with that! Otherwise I’d be nuts!
He asked where I want to eat and the usual food that comes to my mind is Chinese, specifically Peking duck that time. So he parked at Lutong Macau in Jupiter St. (we're in Makati City). We ordered half of Peking duck which was partly to be eaten with wraps and half I thought was as is, plain roast. But it turned out differently which I didn’t like as much.

Peking duck cooked further for lettuce wrapping..

After the Peking duck dinner, we proceeded to RJ Bar only few blocks away. We were to go to Merk’s Bistro and Bar in Greenbelt-2 but I changed mind when I learned it was RJ’s night. As early birds at the bar we thought of leaving the place for a while. but the crews informed us there’s only one table left unreserved and we may lose it. Not wanting to miss the surviving table, we stayed on. It wasn’t long when guests flowed in and the place suddenly became full packed. We even overheard few arguments over reserved tables. Ha ha..!
Everyone wanted to be accommodated simply because it was RJ’s night. I spotted some celebrities and socialites on the dance floor. Their faces I knew but can’t recall the names. Though we didn't boogie down the dance floor (scared to be caught on tv . he he.). I was keyed up with the hip sound. It was a lively rockin’ and rollin’ night with the young and the olds alike.

RJ's music is revitalizing! I really enjoyed a lot! I'm now toying with the idea of utilizing my imaginative shot gun again if deem needed! ha ha..

'Hope you guys are having a good week. Thanks to all for the time spent.
