I tell people I easily forget.
Half the time, it’s true. Half the time, it’s simply a convenient way of evading the unforgettable. Tell people I don’t remember and just like that, I’m off the hook.
But always, there’s that familiar tug, a remark, a face, a memory that opens up and still has the ability to bewitch me.
By saying out loud that I have forgotten, it ceases to exist to others.
By saying out loud I do not remember, none of it could have ever happened.
Now, where did I leave those bedroom slippers?
Oliviers & Co. is already open in Central Square, BGC! I know, I am three and a half weeks late in sharing this bit of awesome news to you guys. That’s what happens when I get too absorbed (obsessed?) with work: my life updates in this blog gets stalled.
So yes, we opened the first Oliviers & Co. store in the Philippines last June 27. We sell high quality olive oils, balsamic vinegars, truffle oils, tapenades, sauces (by Michelin-star chefs from Europe, no less!), and so much more. Price points are higher than your usual, but I guess that is expected in products that come from key olive oil producing countries in Europe. If my savings account would allow me to stock up our kitchen with purely O&Co. products, I would have by now. Ha ha!
If you’re into gourmet cooking at home, you should visit the store. Almost all products are available for tasting and the store staff can cook real food for you to try. Hope to see you there soon!
I don’t know which would be worse for couples who are entering the phase of ‘comfortable’. To go through it together or apart?
