on a tricycle, you wouldnt believe the stares we got from the people as we passed! ahahahhaa
so it said, there was supposed to be a typhoon coming, so we postponed our trip to the "mystical beach" of anawangin for the next day. but as we can see it, the sky wasnt as dark as it was supposed to be. its too late to go to anawangin, because we have to start early morning, as the water is calm to cross the open sea to be able to reach it.

so what to do in lazy day?! i sent an sms to isabel if we can meet her, she said she can but not after 5 pm! oh thats nice! and also ted and he was planning to see a movie "wolverine" at geenbelt. i asked ben if he wanted to see a movie and he said yes, so i sent an sms back to ted that well meet him at 4 pm at greenbelt and join him to watch the movie! we also decided to look normal, ahahahaha yes - we wore jeans and nice shirts instead of dirty shorts! ahahaha

so me and ben set off at 2 pm, the meeting point was starbucks at greenbelt 3, ben was about to vomit when i told him that the meeting point was starbucks, he told me, is there any other place in manila where starbucks isnt the meeting point?! ahaha i told him, because its the easiest to find!

when we got to makati city, i told ben if its ok for him to go firstly to the mall i loved when i was still in highshool - glorietta or quad in the good old days.
ben selecting stationeries.
when we got there.... the mall isnt what the mall it used to be, forgive, i was a a mall rat. it was almost deserted, the class of the mall is gone.

was a bit sadenning for me.

as we went to the exit, i spotted one of my favorite shops when i was in highschool and college, marithé et françois girbaud, it "was" used to be a high end brand but now.. well..  anyway, i went there and looked for some stuff, because i wanted to replace my old leather wallet. they had sale, so i bought one wallet, and the saleslady had to struggle in english, and asked me if i speak talagalog and i said of course! well, i spoke in english because i dont want to be rude to ben. so i bought a really nice good looking wallet for only 500 pesos (7 euros)! i was happy with my purchase and actually humming along while walking.
grab a copy now! ahahaha


it was still early, so we decided to take a stroll inside greenbelt. its a perfect opportunity for me also to practice ben's camera, his pentax. its a bit different from all the digital cameras i had! fuji, nikon and the others which were all japanese brands! so my shots at the pentax are wobbly and not sharp, but im excited to use the panorama shot of it. but still, i looked like a camera idiot! ahahaha. then ben wanted to buy a notebook or some journal of some sort and i said we go to powerbooks and ben said from looking at the bookstore that there isnt any stationaries there, i rolled my eyes, i told ben, before i went to germany, i always at powerbooks in thie branch and i know the layout, so we went inside and presto - i directed ben to the stationaries! he bought some kinda notebook and we headed downstairs to starbucks.
this is what i like about powerbooks! they have these curious little books!


at 4 pm, ben and me were at starbucks and ordered iced lattes,we met ted and catched up on stories, the movie will play before 5 pm and isabel was still nowehere to be found, i sent a couple of sms to her. ted was really worried, because the movie IS STARTING, then isabel called me and said she cant leave whatever shes working on! arrrghhh. so we hurriedly went to the the cinema above! good thing some sits still werent sold! but we have to sit separately and were on the rightmost wing of the cinema, but it doenst matter! so before entering the cinema itself, we decided to buy some snacks, i bought an american hotdog while ben was so loud asking if how does popcorn taste here, i just rolled my eyes and said its popcorn, whever you go in the world, its a corn that pops! ahahahah another case of us bickering like girls.
not sharp! still practicing with pentax!
ahahahaha.

so we went inside found our seats wand watched wolverine stab people and mutants with is claws! ahahaha - well actually i am a bg fan of x-men, the story is a little bit off from the comic books and cartoons but still entertaining with the special effects of the 21st century.

but halfway through the movie, i felt something funny! my stomach is a little bit turning, damn, too much milk from the latte, I TRIED TO RESIST IT ahahaha. up until the last part of the movie, i culdnt hold on anymore, i immediately went down from my seat, so that i wouldnt compete with the mass of people! i wasnt even far yet, then ben followed me! ahahahahaha ahahaha we both dashed to the toilet! ahahahaha

after our adventures in the toilet, the movie was finished as we can hear lots of people going in and out of the toilet, we got out and ted was waiting for us! we asked ted what the ending was and he wouldnt tell us! hes so mean! hahahahaa

so in the end, we didnt knew what happened! ahahahaha.
ben, nicely dressed huh?! ahahha.
ted you owe us one! ahaaha.

after the movie, we decided to eat, somewhere but cheap, we went to the fastfood center of glorietta with so many choices! then we decided to eat in a filipino-spanish cuisine stall as we would liek ben to taste the spanish influence cuisine in the philippines.

after that, we decided to have a coffe, but i refrain from drinking too much milk! lol ahahahaa and not starbucks again, so we sat at coffee bean and tea leaf. i dont remember what i had but we had a good night or relaxing conversation, at 10-11 pm, we decided to go home, as me and ben will have to wake up at 4 am to go to the "mystical beach" of anawangin. ted offered to drop us again at the bus intersection which was so again nice fof him but he still owes us the ending of the movie! ahahahaha
