A get together with my freinds

As usual sitting in the class a friend of mine said let's meet up at ladies park. You can call your relatives and I will call some more of my freinds she said.

The idea sounded great, but as always I wasn't really sure how would I get along with a huge group of philipino ladies. Not to forget the language barrier ( it's not as if they don't understand or can't communicate in English). 
Anyhow I made up my mind to go along with them. The weather was pleasant with cool winds blowing and kids running around in the park. Some riding cycle and some just jumping and screaming and yes some also tagging around their mums, yelling to get some new toys. 

My mates decided to sit on top of a small man made hill in the park, which personally me to likes as it's very comfy and private space that you get to enjoy. But due to rest of the people had small kids so hence we had to shift our space to lower ground, where kids wouldn't fall and get hurt.

The ladies were very warm and welcoming, though language barrier was still there as they all spoke in Tagalog and I just knew the word "Sigi Sigi" ( meaning Yes in Tagalog). It doesn't mean that my freinds didn't translate what they spoke, yet at times you get a feeling of being alienated.

How can I forget the food, yes food consisted Mixed vegetable gravy, Chicken Roast, Salted fried Fish, boiled rice and Crab Soup. Sweets included Crumbly biscuit of Dates and Boiled rice dumpling with sugar coating. 

Over all I really had fun and I look forward to meeting them again.
