Last December 21, I met up with former Nielsen colleagues for dinner. Gemma is home from New Zealand while Jason is here from the US. Grace and I met them at Casa Armas Podium.

I gave Gemma and Grace necklaces from Carrie Cordero Designs. The three of us girls got Jason a little gift from Victorinox.

We ordered Gambas (I didn’t take a photo) which is so good we ate every morsel from the plate. The paella was very good, too. One of my favorites.

Casa Armas’ Paella Valenciana


We ordered a chicken dish with tomato sauce. One order was too big for the four of us.

Chicken – forgot the dish

The Salpicao is a perfect match to the paella and was very tasty.

Super yummy Salpicao

It’s my first time to order Sangria and I loved it! I’d come back to Casa Armas for the Sangria.

Love the Sangria!

After dinner, we took more photos.

Here’s a photo with al four of us. Jason doesn’t like looking at the camera.

After dinner, we went to Golden Spoon for frozen yogurt dessert (sorry, no photos).
Then, just before we parted ways, we checked out Terry’s Selection where I picked up a bottle of wine, and some cheeses. We took photos of course.

Dinner was good, the company even better. Next year ulit Gemma and Jason!
