Apparently, one of my usual readers told me that this post is a little short of details, so I’m gonna bare it all like a Marilyn Monroe. Here goes —
OMG I had a really tiring day today because I went out shopping with my amiga from Bicol, Sarah. She came back to Manila last Thursday (I think) and I only got to meet her tonight. It was really fun, especially the chikas we caught up on.
It was a pretty simple plan. Sarah and I set to meet up at Gateway around 2pm so from there we can go to SM North. Unfortunately, I had a long working day yesterday that I slept late, and woke up really late – at 1:34pm. I texted her and asked if we could reschedule at 3pm. So she agreed. Before I sent the text, she was already asking me if I was going to ditch. Funny thing to ask but I guess she knows how I usually ditch out the last minute. Anyway, so I kind of slacked off eating lunch, taking a bath, and dressing up. I even got to watch Eat Bulaga for a couple of minutes. *Sorry Sarah*. So I got to Gateway 30 minutes late, did a little ‘omg you always do this’ conversation, and then had ‘snacks’ at Pancake House. I ordered some salmon cake topped on brown rice goodness. Gosh, it tasted like sand. Not that I have already tasted sand, but I figured it’s the closest thing. Thanks to all the other toppings like cucumber, raisins, and other healthy stuff, I managed to finish it. Oh, and by the way, Sarah and I got jealous of the pancake at the other table and decided to get one also. We only ordered one and shared so please don’t judge us. It was a tolerable meal. Skipping the hatred towards the food, I think the fact that I was really sleepy is worth mentioning. Don’t get me wrong, the catch up sesh was great! I was just really really tired.
Anyway, we talked about a couple of pacool people who can’t seem to keep their nose off of other people’s business. The conversation was full of wtf faces and facepalms as we tell each other about our similar experiences. Don’t you hate people like that, especially when they give negative unsolicited opinions? Ugh, sometimes it even makes you want to staple their mouths.
We also talked about Annie’s antics. Everytime we meet, meaning Sarah and I, we always keep a portion of our chika time for any updates about our other friend, Annie. For tonight, Sarah told me about the 40 year old secretary. It was a detailed demonstration from how Annie talked, to the number of times the quotation was made in error, up until her hilarious reactions, that is, tearing up the paper in front of the employee. My gosh, I dream of doing that to someone. I can’t tell if I’m capable, but as Annie told me, sometimes you won’t be able to stop yourself when you’re already on that moment. It made me want to pay Annie a visit and just stay there while she’s working. I WANT to see her in action. lol. Putting things into perspective, she had a good reason doing so. Incompetence is just intolerable.
After the sumptuous meal, we left Gateway for SM North. There were so many people there! People wearing jeje caps, and jerseys. We first went to Annex, then The Block, then Trinoma. We were able to purchase a lot of awesome clothes today. Definitely productive. It was all great except for an unexpected cross of paths. Anyway, not worth mentioning.
So end of day, I bought a couple of cute shorts and a polo. I tried them again at home and they’re all awesome. I was planning to buy more because it was sale in almost all the stores. I, however, remembered that I bought a laptop just two weeks ago. It kind of caused my wallet to suffer financial trauma, so I thought of giving this big spender a break.
