One of the nicest things I love about working for a European company is the celebration of French holidays. I look forward to them because it means I can go gallivanting on odd days when everyone else is away at work. My friends are naturally all for the idea of taking little breaks, hence their support for such days. I love my friends 🙂
Unfortunately, we were not able to celebrate le quatorze juillet because of the typhoon yesterday. However, here is one of my fond memories of the last French holiday (Easter Monday) that I spent with mes amies:
Chocolate Fire (thanks, Chuck!)
For the first ever French holiday we celebrated, we had tea at Chocolate Fire, a café in Salcedo Village, Makati, near my friends’ offices. The chocolates were divine, even if they looked so simple.
For dinner, we went to a totally un-French place because it was impossible to turn down Korean food. I can’t promise we’ll go French all the way next time, but we’ll see.
