Hot pot buddies

My friends (from my former job) and I used to eat in hotpot or “shabu-shabu” restaurants in Manila usually when someone is celebrating a birthday or a send-off party when one is transferred to another beat. Those times were one of the fun moments I had while covering the health beat. Most of my friends then were single and you might just guess what our favorite topics of discussion would be (while savoring the hot shabu-shabu), reporter bashing (aminin :D), non-functioning official (tamad na opisyal), cute reporter (meron ba? Bading. hehe), free dating online? Hmm. Pwede.

I haven’t seen my hot pot buddies for a long time. Some of them are active on Facebook and are still working or are assigned at the DOH. Do I miss them? ‘Yung hot pot session lang.  Joke! 😀

Hot pot refers to several East Asian varieties of stew, consisting of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, leafy vegetables, mushrooms, wontons, egg dumplings, and seafood. The cooked food is usually eaten with a dipping sauce. In many areas, hot pot meals are often eaten in the winter. – wikipedia
