but i was hungry, well we are inside a college, so which means there are still no cafeterias opened at this hour. ben and me were quite hungry, we had coffee but there was no bread or something.
at about 6:30 am, manay lala came with people i dont know! with a huge van, manay lala introduced me these people, which i forgot the names! she told me, we were invited to go to their place in northern iloilo province called concepcion. because i told manay lala, that maybe we are interested to go to marbuena island, but then last night we opted to go to guimaras instead.
so with all these people that i didnt know, i began to worry, because, which means, we dont have privacy to wherever we would go.
since it was early in the morning, i couldnt eat that much, i only ate congee and ben had chinese ham and rice. i asked manay lala if there is a money changer nearbey because ben wanted to change some euros. also, i am needing to withdraw money since i only have a couple of thousand pesos.
after our short breakfast with manay, lala, rommel who came with us and the other 4 people with 2 children. manay lala, me and ben excused ourselves to find a money changes, when we were walking, i saw saw many vendors selling boiled sweet and saleted peanuts! arrghh i am so frustrated as i still couldnt eat hard things specially nut as my wound from the extracted tooth still hurts!
anyway ben changed a couple of hundred euros, while i tried to find a bank with maestro on it, no luck.
finally we found one and i changed thousands of pesos. because to be honest i dont know where we are going! manay lala said that we are going to a town in the north, then go back again in the afternoon to guimaras island to maximize our one day, thats fine with me!
so from iloilo city we set off to the northern coast in the province! i really had no idea what were doing and i apologized to ben who seemed uncomfortable with the situation too!
