To congratulate or to NOT congratulate. That is the question. To deliver or to NOT deliver on their promises. Now THAT is the bigger question. Forgive me, but at my age, I have become quite the cynical. Blame it on past experiences, I guess. I mean how many times had we listened to promises only to find out they have been blatantly broken & we had been expertly lied to. And just look at the political dynasties building up. My gosh, it’s like they are making it into a family business of sorts. Kawawang bansa!
Anyway, did my “good citizen” duty inspite of the heaviness in my heart. I really had nobody in mind, and wondered why I even had to bother voting. They are all one & the same, in my opinion. But my hunny nagged & nagged til I got out of bed & into my street clothes. So there.
Blank. I really had nobody in mind.
Eavesdropped on the kids talking about BERSHKAas I was climbing up the stairs to my room. Thought it was a concert they were excitedly gushing about. So I said “leggo!”. Yun pala tindahan! MAHAL na tindahan! :P
Bershka is the newly opened spanish clothing store in the newly renovated Glorietta 2. Yes, yung binomba na mall. Bomba rin ang presyo.. ANG MAHAL! @_@ The clothes are similar to those of its sister companies Zara & Massimo Dutti, if not nicer. More on the bohemian/romantic/preppy side. Andale, andale! ;) So it turned out to be another shopping expedition for the kids. They were VERY happy, lemme tell you. Moral lesson of the story? Huwag mag-eavesdrop! ;)
Happy excited faces. Ready to explore the spanish wonderland that is BERSHKA! :P
Was eyeing on having dinner at Modern China after our costly spanish expedition since my Lovey showed me several blogs about it & pictures, but the standee outside Bubba Gump that featured this juicy SHRIMP COCKTAIL had me suddenly craving for shrimp. Lots & lots of shrimps!
