Philippine Adventure: Day 11 & 12 - Stranded

Day 11 - 9 September, 2008 (Tuesday)

It has not stopped raining since the Monday night sudden downpour. Most of the streets around Metro Manila were reported to be underwater. Flashfloods and landslides in some parts of the country hit by typhoon Mace were also reported. Tsk, tsk. Very sad.

And so, in account of rain, I just stayed home. I was also nursing a cold after being drenched in the rain the previous night. Sigh. Not a good time to be sick. My vacation is almost drawing to a close.

Day 12 - 10 September, 2008 (Wednesday)

The Cookies' day started around afternoon. My Cookie and his Ahia picked me up, then we went to pick up his Mama from Quezon City. It was still pouring outside, and when we got there at around 2 pm, we decided to have lunch at the North Park restaurant in Banawe. They said, it is the pioneer branch of the popular Chinese resto. And true enough, food there does fare better than from the branch we frequently visit at the Glorietta in Makati. We ordered for their signature dish Toasted Noodles, Salt and Garlic Pepper Squid, Yang Chow Fried Rice, and Lapu-Lapu Fillet with Tofu Hotpot. It was a pleasant meal.

After that late lunch, we started to head for Makati. It took us around 3 hours to reach Makati. Well, with all the rain and flood, it is but normal in the Philippines. But finally, we got to Makati and proceeded with our little shopping spree.

My Cookie got his Mama a Panasonic Washing Machine. After appliance shopping, we went to the grocery to buy our Singapore supplies. We shelled 1.5K PHP for the groceries, and there are still a couple more items that we need to get. It's just disappointing why the SM Hypermart didn't have the stock for these items. And so, we still need to scout other supermarkets for it. I intend to complete this task before Friday. Otherwise, there won't be anymore time to get them.

When the grocery adventure was done, dinner was served at Heaven 'N Eggs. It has been a while since the Cookies were there. And they have already changed the theme of the walls. The cute angels were replaced by an Eiffel Tower landscape. But the swings were still there! Hurray!

Here are some snaps. ^_^
