Sorry for this very late post, everyone. Life has gotten quite complicated and I am now in argument with this thing called time. As you grow older, it seems to get out of your hands. I am struggling to manage it and to stop myself from saying, "I don't have time."
Speaking of time, I now have work during Saturdays (BOO!), so I miss hanging out with my fellow Bellas. When Belle de Jour Power Planner announced of an event and it was scheduled on a Friday night, I said, "Yes! Finally! Time to bond with them again!"
Without second thoughts, I signed up for the BDJ Passion Series: Shake, Pour, and Serve! It was held on June 14, 2013 in TGI Friday's Glorietta and the topic was about cocktail mixing and flair bartending. It's in perfect timing, too! 'Cause I like cocktail drinks and the creativity in mixing and looks that come with it!

|Yes, they throw bottles in the air!|
|Yep, they got everyone's attention! :)|
After dinner, they called in participants for the cocktail mixing workshop! I happily volunteered for the Strawberry Margarita. I picked that slot because I like strawberries, even though I haven't tried margarita yet.

Bartenders have this term, Exactopour, which means that the drink made will fit the glass right up to the brim with no spillage. Hmmm... when I tried it with my work...

You know, when I cook or make drinks that I am not sure of, I really doubt the quality of it. But this time, when I tried my Margarita, I was surprised that it actually tasted good! Wow! I can't believe it! I'm so proud! The bartenders were good teachers!
