after almost 4 hours of bus ride and traffic jam in manila, we arrived at the bus terminal. when we got down, the sir taxi sir people rushed over us, but we ignored them. we dont know what to do, since its only like past 7 pm, we still do not want to go home yet, then we decided to eat something flashy this time as for 2 days we only ate instant noodles, beans and crackers - time to splurge money on good food! ahahaha.
we took a bus, the heat in manila was really, goodness, we didnt had any shower after leaving anawangin and camara island, the salt left in my body was itchy on my skin from the heat. i swear, i was salt mine that time! ahaha.
after a brief bus ride, we went to the mall of asia and decided to eat there, as it has a transportation system that goes directly to my place in las piñas.
as we were walking, you wouldnt believe the stares we got from people! as though we just came back from living in the caves! ahahaha. anyway, we were so tired and hungry that we decided to eat in the first resto that we could spot on, we dont want to walk and walk and come to a point of being indecisive.
the first resto we spotted was pizza hut! hahhahha of all places, so we went in, we asked for a table for two, yes - me and ben are dating again.
as we sat in the table, i was amazed by this "pizza hut" in our table was a bottle of wine, lighted candles and an anthorium flower! ahahaha aahaha i guess ben and me are dating afterall! aahahah kidding aside - it was a lovely table setting!
we ordered appetizers, as usual, mushroom soup for me and croutons, while ben had some baked shrimps or whatver and he had a pizza with all the toppings while i ordered garlic pasta with shrimps.
i was really hungry that time, and shaking - when my soup came and sprinkled pepper on it, the peppers came flowing wildly as my hand were shaking.
but it felt good to have something warm in the stomach for me. ben ate his shrimps with his bare hands, we really looked indeed just came out from the cave! ahahaha ahahaha
then came our main course, ben ate so fast, its like a flash of lightning and then his food was gone! i havent eaten my 1/3 of the food! lol ahahaha.
as we finished eating and the bill came, the air in my lungs whoosed out of how expensive that was! ahahahaha - apparently, bens, entree - the shrimps - costed a fortune!
we paid it and went to the station where we can get a ride back to las piñas, goodness i really needed some good sleep! tomorrow we go back again to a mall and mail ben's other stuff to britain which he wouldnt need for the trek to nepal with his girlfriend.
i just couldnt believe that all the event just happened overnight and i couldnt believe that almost three weeks just passed just like that!
