I’ve been staying away from alcohol since I found out I was pregnant almost a year ago. Now that my siopao is four months old, I finally felt comfortable with the thought of consuming negligible amount of alcohol…starting with refreshing cocktails I shared with a dear friend (and former boss!) at two in the afternoon — a first for me. I love doing things at off-hours. In this case, 2pm cocktails on a weekday gives off a ladies who lunch vibe. I won’t be able to do this once I start working 8-5 again (sooner than soon!), so I relished this catch-up with much gusto.
