Hey! It’s been so long since I have posted in this blog… Hahaha. For about 25 days ago.. Anyway. Well, yeah. As you’ve seen on my title, my birthday is a day before the 29th. In short, the 28th of December. Maybe, you’d be raising your eyebrows and mutter to yourself that you don’t give a shit in whatever I post. In my defense, this is my blog and I just want to type anything that flows in my mind. Haha 🙂 Kidding. I know that I make some lousy introductions in my blog but please let me have this one okay? After all, it’s my day. Haha. :). So here I go…
Ever since I turned 16, something has jinxed one of my favorite days of the year, the 28th of December. I do know for most of us, we consider our day special, in a sense that we could possibly relax or do anything that we’d love to do. However, something bad happened that day. And I can’t remember but I knew that it was really the start of my jinx. (As awful as it sounds, I kept jinxing my birthday and I tend to get negative vibes during the day itself. And for seven years straight. Huhu.)
Although I tend to get pissed off every birthday that I have for seven years straight, something good happens the day after :). Yeah. So sometimes I feel like 29 is the legit day that I was born. =))
I won’t go into details about what happened in the 28th of December but I’ll just fast forward to the day after. 🙂
December 29, 2014
I woke up at exactly 5:30 am despite our late arrival last night. I checked my tablet and saw the time so I just read some manga and waited for 6:30 am so I could take a shower and fix myself. I tried calling my friend Paulina because we’re supposed to meet at 7:30 am but she’s not yet answering my calls. When it was 7:00 am I started panicking because I realized that maybe she’s still asleep. And hence, our meeting was postponed for about 2 hours. And we’re delayed by two hours. 😦 *sobs*. Anyway, when I met her, I saw that she was quite guilty because her cousins arrived last night and they bonded. Usual chatting and stuffs that cousins do. And unfortunately, she slept past 3 am and that’s one valid reason why she’s late. So, to make up for the lost time, she bought me an egg mcmuffin meal. Haha. I haven’t eaten any breakfast yet and she already ate at home. =) But still, we ate during our Trip to Cavite. Haha. 😉
We had a fast trip up and arrived at Bacoor at 11am. However, the traffic enforcers were rampant there. So, we arrived at our meeting place BDO, Imus at 11:45 am. I seriously knew that Allison, our driver was indeed annoyed. Hahaha. Sorry Allison! Upon meeting him, we both sat at the back seat in order to annoy him and make him feel like a driver during our trip to tagaytay. I do know that he really was quite annoyed but I really like to annoy my close friends so what the hell. =)
As Allison was driving, we got into usual topics about love, heart breaks and some sort of signs that we both were praying for. I even told them stories and they were quite amused and horrified at the same time. I just went poker face for a while. :). So it was about past 1 pm when we arrived at Tagaytay. Allison was annoyed because I was consistent in asking him if we’re near tagaytay. And because he was annoyed at some point, he told me this, “Anong akala mo sa Tagaytay, sa Kanto lang?” or in english, “Do you think that Tagaytay is just around the corner?” I laughed really hard. HAHA. I told them that I want to eat Bulalo since Tagaytay is famous when it comes to that food. To be honest, I really would love to explore more with these two but I have to meet my high school friends at around 6 so, we literally JUST ATE at TAGAYTAY.
Anyway, after some thorough annoying discussion we’ve decided that we would just eat at Bulalo Point. And we were really trying to figure out where the hell it’s located because our driver said that it’s located past picnic grove that we never found out that there’s also a branch near us. As in literally outside. And when I noticed, I laugh hard. I said. “Eh ayun lang pala yung BulaloPoint eh!” Allison apologized and it was really comical. =)
Upon arrival, I’ve noticed that there are many people inside that restaurant. It seems that this restaurant is popular and I thought that maybe it’s safe to eat there since there are many people eating when we arrived. True to my guess, that restaurant didn’t disappoint me because when the food arrived, I really wanted to dig in right away. Plus it’s really cheap for this amount of food.
I only spent less than 1000 pesos for this meals with rice and drinks included. Haha. The food was really delicious especially the Bulalo. That Bulalo which is already good for 3-4 persons, you can only get at the price of 300 pesos. :). Sulit na sulit. Plus the view was really good and it’s cold. So it’s nice to eat some warm soup there. 🙂
Plus there’s this some serenading group. As in, you’d never imagine that you’d be serenaded. I thought that they were just singing because someone had their birthday or what. Or they just called them so that they’d sing for them. I never imagined that they’d be singing right behind us. I can’t even remember what they sang first and then the girl asked what song I’d like to hear. I told her Fall For You by Secondhand serenade. However, the group doesn’t know the chords, so the lady just improvised a song. And I was really surprised when I heard her singing “Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran”. It was really like a WTF moment. :'(. Of all songs, why that? Huhu </3
So I never even imagined that Allison was recording my reaction to that song. Boy. the video was really hilarious and no, I’m not gonna upload that video. :P.
Hello Ed Sheeran!.
Haha. I even inserted the song. So anyway, continuing my story. I paid and we left there towards our next destination, Rowena’s. Upon our arrival at the place. We were like little kids because we were forced to park underground and our car was the only one parked there. Pretty creepy, ‘ayt?
Then we headed upstairs and saw the beautiful view there. So we started to take pictures first before we went inside the cafe.
And so far, here’s my favorite picture of them all.
I know right. Sorry for my vain-ness! hahaha. 🙂 Anyway, we decided to have dessert at Rowena’s and I ordered a blueberry cheesecake and the two of them ordered red velvet cake. :). I’ve had enough of Red velvet. And they weren’t really lying when they told me that the pastries and cakes at Rowena’s are definitely one of the best. :).
And we also managed to take pictures during our stay. Hahaha. Damn. Sometimes I wonder if I just somehow become a cam whore when I’m with them. =)
Afterwards, Paulina and I went North Bound and thankfully, Allison drove us up to MOA. Seriously, it was way too traffic and I really panicked. Oh by the way, we have a music video of Ed Sheeran’s thinking out loud but I wouldn’t upload it anymore because it’s way too embarrassing… So, I became nice and sat in the passengers seat. and we’re off to manila! =)
Upon arriving at MOA, I noticed it’s already 15 minutes to 7 pm and I really panicked. But fortunately, Paulina and I just road a taxi and we arrived at Glorietta 5. We went to Yabu for our dinner. Paulina met my best friend Rona and close friend Iryss. 🙂
I really am full by that time that I just forced myself into eating what’s in my plate. I’m sorry but I didn’t enjoy my dinner well. Hahaha. Sorry.. 🙂 After dinner, we went to see the lights and it was really magical.
I really enjoyed seeing those lights even though it was only due for a short while. Haha. Upon riding MRT on the way home, my wish to see fireworks that night was fulfilled. I saw a beautiful fireworks display and then I knew, I really had a blast.
Plus, even though I arrived late at home. My dad let me be. He didn’t scold me or what-so-ever. 🙂 I do hope that next year, the 29th of December would still be awesome! 🙂
And there you have it guys :P! OMG! Look at the time. It’s already 7:30 PM and I haven’t even finished reading chapter 3. I’m soooo dead. Gosh. I need to pick up the pace now. 😦 huhu. Have a great night/day everyone.
