welcome to steady south!!!!
i looove living in the south.
it may be the land of paying toll and bad slex traffic, but i still wouldn't exchange it for anything else. for some reason, its the perfect mix of bustling and laid back, somehow the air is so fresh, and the energy is just so steady without being lazy. plus its great that most of my friends live down south too!
we call this place nguyen resort and spa. our dear friend henry had his house renovated recently and its pure bliss hanging out there. thanks mr. and mrs. ngu!!!! on the table we have an assortment of beers and cocktails. and fruits! fruits? wow, healthy?
hanging out in the south usually has an unspoken "bring for sharing food or drink" rule. i drove thru mcdonalds and ordered six twister fries, and had them stuff it in a happy sharing meal box. it was a hit!! also, in the south, chairs are optional. sitting on the floor is way fine for carlo, kat, pam, and mark.
meet mark and mark. two of the funniest boys, i mean, men i know! mark on the left is a web celebrity learning how to speak tagalog. mark on the right is a distinguished finance man who sometimes gets his grammar and pronounciation mixed up. these quirks make them so lovable!
that's me with the host with the most, henry, who is very, very soon going to be a proud daddy-o to a beeeautiful baby girl with his beeeautiful wife mitzi! woohoo! that's booger, the favorite and most senior of all nguyen family dogs, showing vince some love.
the men of team dosh!!!! mark a., funny, smart, and single. henry, crazy, entrepreneurial, and married. dustin, gorgeous, brilliant, and attached. maui, sweet, hardworking, and engaged. mark p., creative, adventurous, and single and ready to mingle. gil, wise, active, and married. i'm proud to say our boys are among the greatest men i know. :)
love is sooo in the air!!!! mommy jett and daddy gil martires are expecting baby number two early next year! woohoo! go gil! matti is excited to be an ate! paul and chris are mr. and mrs. santillana who are to wed in a beautiful ceremony before the year ends. (grabe, weddings and babies, ang tanda na natin! hahaa!)
this is how stories usually go. the boys usually talk about finance. always finance. the different markets and the booming economies. or sports. golf, basketball, football. or politics. philippine politics, foreign political leaders, or even business in relation to politics. or games. xbox, ps3, xbox, more xbox. for the girls, its simple. life, love, gossip, fashion. :p
ang daming tao!! cha-os!! hahahhaa!!
we all started hanging out simply because of common friends. we always only saw each other out at night. that was the time of v bar, orange, wasabi, ponti. those were the days we could go out at night and go straight to school. hahaha! a looot has changed since then. number one change is that from going-out-buddies, we all became real friends. there for each other through the good and the bad. (ooooh, so cheesy but sooo true!!)
and as the years go by, team dosh just grows bigger and bigger and better! welcome to the family future baby nguyen, future baby martires, and hopefully future baby bugayong, santillana, and garcia! and from the other parts of the world, future baby favilas and future baby santoses? plus more baby rodriguezes and ortegas! wooohoooo! baby! baby! baby! hahahha.
and steady south is always a great homebase for all of us to share stories and catch up on life. love itttt!!!!!!
