Sunday's Treat

Yesterday was not a usual Sunday routine. Since my uncle’s taxi had an engine problem, my whole family travelled Gen Luis St., NLEX and EDSA by Dela Rosa Bus and from Anapolis Greenhills we rode a taxi all the way to Valle Verde Country Club where Kerygma Feast is celebrated weekly. Fortunately, we arrived just on time. The church was not yet full so we were able to get seats on the middle part and away from industrial aircondition unit Halleluiah!

Rev. Fr. Rudy Horst presided the Holy Mass.Then, as usual, former actor Adrian Panganiban led the worship. But this time he was accompanied by budding Catholic preachers Andrew and Joseph (that’s not their real name. Memory gap? Yeah :p). Bro. Bo’s talk followed with a brand new series called OMG! Here’s a glimpse of yesterday’s handout.

Next, we had an early lunch in SM Megamall to avoid long queue of hungry shoppers. Finally, while having lunch and a little chitchat, I was able to convince my mom to see an expo (I am a certified EXPOs addict). So our next stop: Megatrade Hall 1 to 3.

Megatrade Hall 1: SM Mega Shoes and Bags Sale
Megatrade Hall 2: 17th Buy Pinoy Exporter’s Fair
Megatrade Hall 3: 8th National Coconut Festival

We only had a quick look inside the first hall. For us, discounts don't matter too much if the things on sale are not so needed. Not included in our financial budget, so to speak. Thus, we relocated to Buy Pinoy Expo. There was a P10 entrance fee. I was disappointed because I was expecting a Free Entrance. I just wanted to tour my mom and let her experience a different indulgence. But she insisted “Sampung piso lang naman pumasok na tayo…” (Obviously, I am more frugal than my mom). We leisurely walked and visited every booth that caught our attention, mostly on food. After less than an hour, we went out with three plastic bags and a heavier tummy. Yes, we groceried inside and savored various Pinoy dishes and delicacies at no cost. After that, we moved to Megatrade Hall 3 where various coconut products were exhibited. Like in Megatrade Hall 1 it’s free. However, the place was less crowded compare to its neighbor. We didn’t spend too much time here since our legs were also getting tired – a clear signal that we should go home.

On our way home, the heavy rain fell. It was raining cats and dogs from NLEX to Caloocan. Upon arriving my youngest brother bathed in the rain. And so did I. Sarap maligo sa ulan. Namiss ko yun. Parang bata lang. Feeling bata!...
Later in the afternoon, I received a phone call from a friend who is thousand miles away. He called just to greet me "Belated Happy Birthday!" Thanks, bro! And the next episodes were back to usual. The End.
Yun lang po. Gusto ko lang pong ishare. Have a blessed week ahead mga kablogs!

.P.S. Thank you to everyone who greeted me on my birthday! Here’s my treat… (Courtesy of my loving mother)

Thanks, mom!
