Thank you for coming… definitely good times… good friends…
Buca di Beppo
It all started with Fiona’s visit to the Bay area for summer and wanted to get together with friends. Marlena who's called as Lala by her friends came up with the idea of having dinner and just hanging out in the companion of good friends. William suggested a place for dinner at Buca di Beppo . A family style restaurant with Southern Italian cuisine.
The dinner was at .
There were eighteen people who showed up. The place was “Buca di Beppo”.. David, having a hard time remembering
name… calling it “Bukan di Depok” (an Indonesian term. Bukan = not, di
Depok = a place in
Guests came in around and started to be seated around . Then panic time… so who’s sitting with whom. It appeared that the singles were looking to sit next to the other singles. They tried not to be surrounded with couples whom for sure will be in “their own world” couples alert!!!
time… Prasad and Steve arrived later. Of course Steve could not make it
earlier. He is
“imported” all the way from
dinner was delicious; particularly the Calamari, Chicken
Masala, and Tiramisu were the hit. Some people (especially Ririn and
Fiona) thought that the Linguini was a bit too peppery hot.

Toward the end of dinner, Ika and Lala came up with a plan to give Donald a surprise. They told the waiter that it was his birthday!!! It was quite a surprise for him who suddenly alerted that it was his birthday that evening. However, the guests were very entertained with the surprise.

the chocolate got eaten ... guests were admiring the book and signing

After dinner, everyone were headed to “Bubble Lounge” to “burn” the excess fat from dinner, plus just relaxed away. Guests drank, played pool, danced, and basically had the best time. While the guys played pool, the ladies were on the dance floor checking out the “fresh meat”. Fiona, Lala, Christine, Rose, David, Ika, Donald, Steve, Prasad, and Miguel and later joined by William were enjoying the music and the rhythm.
Lieman, Willy, William, David, Ernes, and Marli tried their skill on the pool game. They even played a little game where they teamed with each other. At the end, the fun was stopped at 2:00 am because the place was closing… so everyone was basically a winner that nite, including the spectators who showed much support and enthusiasm!!!!
Hope everybody had a great time. Hopefully we can get together again in
near future because everyone seemed to enjoy each other’s companion and
no one ended up in a cat fight. If anyone is disappointed
that you feel there weren’t enough pictures of you being posted… next
MAKE SURE that you stay close to Fiona or Lala (anyone with a handy camera).
They also accept bribes and advanced payment.!
