I've always been hesitant to go to blogger events or join blogger networks because: 1) I don't really consider myself a real blogger because I just keep Joei & Me as a diary of things I love and 2) I've heard and read lots of horror stories in blogger circles and that's the last thing I need as my day job (as much as I love it) is stressful enough.
But having met Jane of Sugar Go Spice and Mish of Momma N Manila changed all that. They are known bloggers in their circles but they're super down-to-earth and whenever we hang out, I feel like I've known them forever. Also in this new group of ours called ABC is Patty of Mrs C's Sugar Coated Life, a schoolmate from La Salle. The best part? We all live in the same village so it's easy to relate to all of the kwentos and we have the same views about things. This is something I've learned to value throughout the years, especially during those times I supposedly said the "wrong thing" or was misunderstood because of something I said. With the ABC girls, I don't have to explain. They totally get me and the things I say.
The reason for this long introduction is because in my next posts, you'll probably see a lot of Jane, Mish, Patty, and our significant others. Like this brunch treat Jane arranged for us at Tus Restaurant in Westgate Alabang.
