November 12, Saturday
Jerry and I took the extra time to mix official trip with pleasure and personal business. We spent the morning up to the early afternoon meeting with a supplier, checking out the new Greenhills Theatre Mall, and having our late lunch at Teriyaki Boy.
When we got home at a little before dinner time, everyone was there including sis and bro-in-law as well as Ma and Pa. After a quick meal, we decided to spend the last night in Manila at….
Ta-dah! Starbucks Alabang. Woohoo. *ang babaw ba*
November 13, Sunday
It was a perfect day to fly home to Cebu but not without hearing mass at Our Lady of Fatima where the homily was delivered by a straightforward and articulate priest. It was also one of those rare moments that I was with my sis May and our hubs Jerry and Rommel. It felt like it was only a few years ago when we would attend mass with Ma and Pa, getting up early to make it to the 11am schedule inspite of lack of sleep from the previous night’s partying (or cramming?). Hehehe…. Now we were there with our partners. Sigh…. time flies…
Soon it was time to part… as in the past trips where we would be brought by everyone (if schedules allow) to the airport, loved ones were there to see us off, even chubby niece Zia, as if we were going abroad. Haha!
My short 3-day trip to Manila saw me in 3 malls (Podium, F Tiangge, Greenhills), Cinnabon, Yellow Cab, a Mediterranean resto (Cafe Med), an Italian resto (Capisce), a Japanese resto (Teriyaki Boy), and 3 Starbucks outlets (Metrowalk, Las Pinas and Alabang) and with plenty of bonding time with loved ones.
