In my line of work, November and December get so busy, I'm left with no time for friends and family. Lately, I've learned to use my mobile phone calendar and plan little dinners with old friends, or get to watch a play or a movie.
Today, I had an early meal with a dear friend and fellow Francophile, Lian. She's one of those few friends who lean and listen. We had our fill of grilled beef and fish, and sake toasts to our life's little triumphs.
Until our next Umu happy hour, ma chere!

Umu, Dusit Thani, Manila. Buffet from 5:00pm to 7:30pm
