Remember when I wrote you a letter on the 1st of December, stating that I can’t feel the Christmas spirit? Well, I still can’t feel it and we’re only less than 36 hours away from the actual Christmas day. On the irrelevant note, I’ve been having a grand week!
I don’t know if I’ve told you this, but I’m a class officer. And as an officer, I’m obligated to join my school’s environmental programs. Being the irresponsible and lazy kid that I am, I ditched all of my school’s environmental programs.
The consequence? I had to go to school in the middle of the Christmas break to pack relief goods. It wasn’t that hard, I only stacked canned foods and even got a one-hour break. After going through that, we, Dominique and I, ate at McDonald’s, went home to freshen up, then went to Bonifacio Global City… Well, that’s what we planned.
What really happened? After freshening up, we ate at Burger King, then headed to Bonifacio Global City, and spent the rest of the night crashing a doctors’ Christmas party ‘cause we had to. I got home at around 12 midnight and to my surprise, I was earlier than my parents!
I caught some well-deserved R&R.
I woke up at around 10:30 AM to prepare my things for today’s adventures. At around 12 noon (we planned on meeting at 11:30 AM but I was terribly late ‘cause my parents were going frantic ‘cause they discovered my closet’s over-flowing unnecessary expensive clothes) we were on our way to Nicole’s (actually, Nicole’s dead uncle’s) condo to have a movie marathon, go swimming, and maybe even go to a mall after all that… Well, that’s what we planned.
What really happened? We ate a bunch of pizza, spaghetti, and chicken from Shakey’s while watching a chick flick. In the middle of the flick, one of my classmates, Angel, had to do some business which resulted to the condo ending up smelling like crap. So, the movie marathon didn’t push through due to said disturbance. We all thought, “Hey, why not go swimming instead of keeping ourselves locked in a smelly condo?” and we did. But little did we know that the pool was freezing cold! After a few hours, some of us headed back to the condo to freshen up. Me, Nicole, Mae, and Kat stayed put for some night swimming. And oh my gosh, thanks to my hottie radar and the hottie’s dad, we got a hottie friend. We kept on staring and giggling whenever he would go inside the pool (whatever, blame our ovaries) and we finally got the chance to meet him on our way to the elevator (best three minutes of my life, I swear), the hottie’s dad introduced the hottie and that was when I noticed his raven black hair, striking blue eyes, and pale white skin, and his name was, uh, Bambam. Heck, his name didn’t stop me from staring at his hipbones… Okay, enough of that, after much squealing and popcorn eating, we went to Starbucks and I’ve finally processed that the mall-crawl was a no-go too. After eating the first proper meal of the day at Nicole’s, I headed straight to bed.
Here’s the thing, whenever I sleepover at a friend’s house, I always wake up early, and Nicole’s wasn’t an exception. We had ham (which is like thicker and wider bacon), bread with cream cheese, and taho for lunch. After freshening up and waiting for Mae (along with her aunt and cousins), we went to Eastwood… Well, that’s what we planned.
Okay, just kidding, we didn’t plan anything, but truth be told, we did go to Eastwood! But little did we know that Pancake House and Cravings (their cake-all-you can is such a rip-off) had P40 service charge, which is bollocks since their service crew didn’t meet my expectations at all! The weird thing is, after eating at such pricey restaurants, corned beef and McDonald’s fries were the only ones that satisfied my needy stomach.
Isn’t it ironic that out of all the days of the week, I won’t be going out on a Friday (which is well, today)? And, as the usual, I will be spending the rest of the day catching some R&R.
And to end this letter, merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you!
