Well, here I am my flight left on Monday, but here I am still. I need to yet rebook my flight. I'll probably get that done tomorrow or the day after. The Delta people said I have a week to rebook, but I don't want to procrastinate on that.
I just got back from the agency a bit ago and they have my passport. (Talk about procrastinating) They are currently processing my visa extension (I got it rushed because today is my last day of my visa) and I should be able to go pay and pick it up tomorrow. The price isn't bad for going through an agency and having it expedited so that it'll be ready in one day. I'll just be waiting tomorrow for the lady to text or call and say that it is ready to be picked up.
I had originally tried going to Intramuras last week. We took the MRT to the LRT and there to old Manila. When we got off of the LRT and started making our way around to get to immigration I had a bad feeling about it. We got close to the bridge we needed to cross to get there and she stopped dead in her tracks and started saying it was getting dark and would be too dangerous for me to stick around there any longer. I was pretty confused considering it was still light out and wasn't gonna be dark for a while, but nonetheless I left with her. We took the Jeepny out of there and went to Luneta Park and caught a Calesa and went over to the boardwalk. I really liked sitting there by the water and munching on some ice cream and talking. She got balut and the vendor was freaked out because she was going to eat it with me there. It made me laugh that he was freaked out when I could of cared less. I had a couple of little kids sitting next to me and the one called me a guy... he thought I was her boyfriend. I was amused.
After sitting there for a while we got up and walked along the boardwalk and stopped at a couple vendors for drinks and peanuts. Haha. Tried finding us a taxi and then gave up on it so we walked over to Star City. Yeah, thats right... walked. Haha. It was fun goofing off inside of there. Rode a couple of the rides, played a few games, and went into the 'winter wonderland' thing they had. I was laughing to myself at all the Filipinos that were freezing. When I got inside I opened up my jacket and was about to take it off, but my gf got cold herself and wanted to leave. Went out and messed around a bit more before we headed home. Ah, before leaving she stopped at one of the stalls inside and bought me a Philippines jacket. I haven't been able to wear it yet coz of the weather here, but I'll find a reason to. After the lady gave it to me I thanked her, but for whatever reason I said something like 'Thank you po'. I am still baffled on why I said that... I didn't intend to say it... and I wasn't even thinking it. Haha!
Thats just what has been going on with me this past week/weekend. I'm sorry I haven't been updating... just been enjoying myself too much here to even have the time to write. Well, drop me some comments here. Suggest some places I should eat at, see, visit, whatever in Manila and where ever!
