The plan was to spend my last off from work alone. I could have just stayed at home, spoken to no one, and slept all day, but I chose to go out and treat myself for something good. I thought that I really need this time to be just myself. To think, perhaps. Or just to escape from all the familiar things that I am used to, including my best friend.
I really wanted to go out for a drink, but it’s still too early, so I just headed to Trinoma Mall. I brought my phone, charger, and my J’s copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. These were all I needed to pass the time. My first stop at the mall was the Mental apparel store. I have already done my shopping yesterday, so I didn’t have any intention of buying more clothes. I just wanted to see my favorite shirts, that’s all. ^^
I also visited Fully Booked and reserved for my J a copy of Haruki Murakami’s upcoming new book on October 25, 1Q84. There was an elegant guest lounge outside the store where I rested for a few minutes, updated my Facebook, and checked my Scruff droid app for any cute guys nearby. There were a few messages on my Scruff inbox from some interested guys but they were all offline. Sayang.
I tried visiting the Starbucks Cafe located in the open sky garden of Trinoma Mall. Just as expected, all the tables were already occupied. There were a lot of vacant seats outside the cafe but I wouldn’t pay for an overpriced coffee and drink it under the heat of the sun. Luckily, I found a decent bar that serves Italian coffee and gelato.
Gelatissimo, after my having tasted their delicious gelato, chocolate cake and fruit shake, became an instant favorite. The place was comfy enough, had a clean rest room, and allowed me to smoke outside. I was pleased to know that they have just recently opened their Serendra BGC branch. Close to work. Good stuff.
I enjoyed reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I enjoyed my food. I enjoyed looking at the beautiful people passing by outside. I was enjoying everything when J called and told me that he would like to visit me. Letse. Magpaparty pa ako.
