With recession in my mind, a friend and I scoured Manila to look for a mall with the least people trying to spend their bonus. Unfortunately, people everywhere, which I hate. So while friend almost killed someone for that jeans on sale in Mango, I rested in peace in a bookstore. That is one of the worst moments I had in a bookstore, so I only bought one book. Plus I don't really have enough money:(
Thursday | 10 PM
Tired and with stomachs only half full, we flew to Ortigas to meet with a friend who left law school for the ad world. Despite the haggard look, Podium was the destination. Went to Borough's, which is the only 24 hour resto in the place. God forbid me, they have the best gravy ever! Plus they have chocolate coated chicken wings and awesome burgers! Recommended! Except that the waiters were already looking at us when we were talking so loud and fast, they must have thought we were in some food court in SM.
Thursday | Friday
Since we were already in Ortigas, we decided to go to the nearest place to drink. World, welcome to Home Depot. The thing about my friends I like was how they didn't care about still having class in a few hours. Nobody cared about no one, except for Cuervo.
Wasted and all, my friend dropped me in our apartment gate a few minutes after I realized I forgot my gate keys. With the dogs howling, bells ringing and thieves lurking, I walked to the nearest pay phone (boo dead phone) to call my sister. And lo behold, the gate was opened after an hour! I could have actually attended Simbang Gabi except that I smell of alcohol and sex.
Friday | 2PM
I ate rice. Bow.
Friday | 5PM
Sleepy and groggy, I can't afford to miss Lantern Parade. Though I didn't finish because of crappy engineering orgs who paraded without anything exciting to show, the affirmation that at least I am still amazed by a lot of things is enough already.
Friday | 10PM
Class Christmas party. Ugh.
Saturday | 5 PM
Panic gift buying.
Saturday | 7PM
College barkada Christmas party. Were we that old already? Last year we were talking about thesis, events and the latest movies; now we speak alien! Being one of the few unemployed beings, its actually funny to see them talk about how A earns a lot in an inter national finance company. Or how awkward it is t have office relationships. Unfortunately for me, I can only bore them with my stories, Funny how a lot of things may change in a year, but one thing always remains.
Saturday | Sunday
Alcohol again. The last time I checked, I still have blood in my veins. So I guess it wasn't that too bad. But I might cool off with any alcoholic beverages this break.
Sunday | Whole day
(I thought of posting pictures, but then caution is a nice word. Plus I still have a lot of sleep to catch up. Me and sister will Binondo tomorrow. World, I'm back!)
