No Work Day

Today was a busy day for me. I’m just glad that it’s a holiday today and we don’t have to be in the office.

Today, we are celebrating Ninoy Aquino’s Day, the anniversary of the assassination of former Senator Benigno “Ninoy”Aquino Jr, which was considered as one of the heroes of democracy in the Philippines.

Our team planned to get together for lunch since the original plan of having a team building didn’t push through. So we decided to eat in Siam at The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu.

We agreed to meet up at 12noon but with the “mañana habit” which is widely known as the Filipino time, I arrived an hour and 20 minutes after 😆 and the plates of the dishes are almost empty since I was late. I still managed to  eat the food they ordered though. The food were very delicious but they are nothing near any of the authentic Thai cuisine. The restaurant already modified the taste to compromise with the way how our taste buds are grown accustomed to.

Actually, I just showed up to meet with everyone but quickly left since my sister forced me to go with her to see a local movie entitled “And I Love You So” starring Bea Alonzo, Derek Ramsey and Sam Milby.

She’s back for the weekend and she has no one else to watch the movie with. I’m just glad that we got to bond together again after a very long time. The movie was actually ok. Got teary-eyed on some of the scenes too. Gratefully, the ending wasn’t really that corny unlike some of the local movies I’ve seen.

After watching the film, my sister and I went to one of her favorite boutiques to do a quick shopping for the latest clothes in fashion. Upon entering the store, I immediately sensed that my sister was one of the store’s avid shoppers since all of them greeted her and then one of the staff made a comment that they have reserved new arrivals for her to choose from. To those who doesn’t know yet, my sister is a shopaholic. She’s basically addicted on shopping clothes. I’m glad that her phase in shopping for branded clothes was over. Now she opts to shop at What A Girl Wants, a chic boutique that sells the latest fashion trends at cheaper rates. We were able to select quite a few number of clothing and I just left her at the store to take care of paying for the stuff she chose and some of the stuff I liked since I need to go somewhere.

One of my close high school friends was in town and we made plans to meet and catch up on stuff. We got to exchange updates on our lives and also had fun exchanging information of the latest updated of our batchmates. It was fun meeting two of my close friends. I hope I can do this more often, to be able to get out more often for I always stay at home if I’m not working. hehehe.
