It's been a while since I last blogged!! =( Here's my week plus in Manila so far.
Landed. Missed Miri and friends so much that I teared up pretty bad.
Went around a few malls in Manila, really regretting leaving Malaysia. Teared up again at the prospect of not seeing so many friends ever again.
Went to Department of Foreign Affairs to renew passport. Went to malls again. Having second thoughts of studying here. Made a decision to study in KL.
Upon seeing the tons of money that my mother will waste sending me back again to Malaysia, I decided to stay. Heart-rending, but hard decisions happen in life, and this is one of my hardest ever. Went shopping again. Went to the NBI to get an NBI Clearance just to make sure I have no criminal record (which was obvious since I was not here for 10 years).
Shopped for furniture for my apartment. Cleaned apartment. Shopping for some clothes. Discovered a wonderful shop called Penshoppe. Queued for passport for 3 hours. Dammit.
Went around malls again. It's getting to be quite a routine now. Got acquainted with living on the 4th floor, getting around in Jeepneys and taxis.
Uncle came from Cebu city. Went out to Glorietta Mall. Nice classy mall with shops like Gucci, YSL, Armani (my favourite!), and the like. Discovered that Armani caps cost like RM 250. Caps. Applied for broadband internet.
Church, albeit a Catholic one. Discovered that they do Bible readings but they don't tell the verses. (Huh?) Another uncle's birthday. Fancy lunch at Congo Grille located at Mall of Asia. Visited Mall of Asia, the largest mall in Asia. How creative, the namers. Saw the ice-skating rink. Ogled at the skating instructor, who was uber hot. Hot that steam was coming off the ice. *grins*
Enrolled at De La Salle University. DLSU rocks. The place is cool, people speak English, and one of the best schools here. Went shopping again, as per required of the day.
Uncle from Cebu goes back to Leyte to open yet another optical shop. He's like the king of optical shops here. I get free shades whenever I want. Whatever brand I want. *grins* My family rocks.
Mum leaves for Los Angeles. All alone in my apartment. Slept until 2pm. Not in that order of course.
