Contagious Laughter at Dong Juan

We pulled off a despedida dinner for a friend who's leaving for United Kingdom very soon at Dong Juan.  It was a reunion of friends from school and I swear the boisterous laughter was contagious as always (even if we were barely half complete).  Even if we don't see one another as often anymore, whenever we come together, there is no silent moment with this loud brood.  We talk about anything under the sun,  we ask and get asked the most outrageous personal question, unmindful of being judged.  Whoever is absent, gets the butt of all jokes and talks. We've shared too many secrets (although we know our secrets aren't safe with them).  The relationship has grown platonic as we see one another grow up; we've gotten too close for comfort that we can't even see ourselves ending up with any of them romantically! haha  As one friend-in-law remarked, "the friendship is really different when you're from co-ed school".  Many of them were in fact my classmates since first grade.  At an early age, when you find friends for life, you need not seek so many others.  That's maybe the reason why I tend to be clannish with my circle of friends.  ;)  That was another night to remember and staying out until after midnight on a weekday only proves, there's nothing quite like this company. (and I can't forgive myself for not bringing a camera)

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

Dong Juan started out as an airconditioned hole in a wall restaurant in the side streets of Guadalupe.  They occupy the very first location of Mooon Cafe.  With a great affordable menu, they're a hit!  They just opened their second branch. They are popular with their burgers, but among my favorites are: burger steak, gambas al ajillo pasta, salami pasta, and fish 'n chips; all these with an average price of P150.  This is another home grown cafe in Cebu.
