I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Food Coma at Picobello and Zabadani
If somebody has to ask me when did I start appreciating student life, I would say.. in high school. Nothing compares to the memories I had in that stage. It was a great ride. Full of moments and memories that enliven my heart and mind. High school is such a bliss, of course with a few spices to make it more remarkable.
Whenever I'm with my high school friends, I really get a wonderful time. They never fail to put a curve on my face. If someone cracks the corniest of jokes, everybody still bursts into laughter. They truly make me sane and insane at the same time. These moments of innocent fun can never be traded with anything else. Incomparable, I should say.
Each of them has their own place in my heart. If only I could give them all a tribute just to show how much they mean to me. This scribbled thoughts is not enough to show how much they mean to me. My actions may not disclose how I feel for them, but at least I could say that through my words, I truthfully say, they can count on me.
When I was in my freshmen year, I remember those two school organizations I took part into. It was in The Reflector (Official school paper) and Young Einsteins Science Club. I also became a member of the Parliamentary Procedure Team, but in sophomore I got booted out. Maybe they forgot I was part of them.
In those clubs, I met many friends. Those who are still my true friends up to now are one of them. We had camps and trainings then, and I always wanted to go back to those times. I love those kind of fun. I miss it that much.
Two weeks ago, I met up with Regine and Lerr. They were two of my most loved high school best friends. We had a smashing gastronomic blast at Picobello Italian Restaurant and Zabadani Cafe. Food trip is really fun, especially with the most important people in your life.
We were supposed to eat at Zabadani Cafe first, but they open at 5pm during Fridays to make way for their prayer. We didn't know that. We headed at Picobello instead. I actually don't like the place cause it's too crowded. I prefer private restaurants. But I have to say that their pizzas taste good. We went there at 3pm so we still had a chance to avail their Buy 1 Take 1 Pizza deal. We only have to pay for the highest-priced pizza that we ordered.
Anyway, here are our photos:
Pizza fun at Picobello Italian Restaurant.
It's Regine and Lerr's first time to dine at Zabadani.
Orders: Lerr - Dajaj Kebab; Regine - Qatayaf; Mine - Pita Shateerah.
Zabadani is the place to beat!
My outfit: Vintage Long Vest, Dorothy Perkins Pink Tube Top, Plains and Prints Skirt, Parisian flats, Bag and accessories (except bangle) from England.
Mr. Wadi offered to take a picture of us. Regine was supposed to have a picture with him, but he said it's forbidden in Islam. Why?
Ms. Tessa (blogmate) was waiting for a ride outside Zab (I think). Glad to finally meet you.
Food coma indeed! More photos in my Multiply. We were the first customers of Zabadani that day. I'm amazed with Sir Wadi, cause he personally cleaned the place. He's so hands-on with his business. I admire his passion to work. We also witnessed them perform an Islamic prayer for 15 minutes.
Til our next food trip bonding friends! :-)
Do you still get in touch with your high school buddies?
