Manila Getaway!  

Posted by Bratty Prince

We just arrived home from our Manila getaway. We spent 3 days and 4 nights in Manila at lola-aunt's house in Pasig City. It was not planned actually. My mom had his impulsiveness attack again. Dad got an SMS from his boss informing him of their meeting in Manila. And so mom said that we'll be coming with dad to at least have some time to relax.

It's my first time in Metro Manila so it's expected that I was so engrossed looking at those big buildings, which I call house. And since it's Christmas holidays, almost all places are decorated with Christmas lights. I was overwhelmed and very excited to see more of its like. I also experienced how it is to ride in a very long train, which mom calls MRT. Well, mom and dad said that I've been in Metro Manila for many times already when I was still in my mom's womb. While dad was still in school, mom would wait for him at the mall. And of course, I'm with mom that time so it's not actually the very first time that I set my feet in the big city.

On our first day, we went malling with mom, Uncle Bon, Lolo-Uncle Boylan, Lola-Auntie Edna, Tita Chai and Tito Edronne. The next day, we went malling again with mom and Uncle Bon. On our last day, dad finally able to make it since their meeting ended the night before the third day. My mom, dad and I went to Mall of Asia and later that afternoon, Uncle Bon and Uncle Boylan joined us at the mall after their work. We didn't waste time so we had a lot of photos taken, strolled around the mall and eat our hearts out. Mom and dad had to rush shopping since our trip was 8:30 that evening. And I can see how disappointed my mom was for not being able to find an item for her. She even tried to ask dad if we can move our scheduled trip. Well, dad said NO since he has to work the next day. At exactly 8:30 we arrived at Philtranco Bus Terminal. Thank God we're not late.

Here are some of the photos taken during our Manila Getaway:
