Today was the birthday party and baby shower of my friend Nax held at Mom and Tina's Bakery Cafe at C-5. Being not familiar with places that cannot be reached by jeeps, buses and MRT, it was a challenge for me to find this place. I have always been good with directions but somehow when the heavens decided to unleash its fury and released God-knows-how-much cubic meters of rain, this complicated the situation. What I remembered from Nax's instructions was that it was at SM Hypermarket and in front of Tiendesitas so I hailed a cab at Shangri-La mall (and I was without an umbrella) and went to SM hypermarket. The taxi driver almost did not make the turn so I had no choice but to get off near the entrance without a roof. When I asked the security guard where Mom and Tina's was, he told me that there was no establishment of that name in the area. I pranced around and looked at the glass window facing C-5 and kaboom. There was the cafe at the other side of the road. Now I remember what the directions were: along C-5 IN FRONT of SM Hypermarket near Tiendesitas. Stupid Joanna.
Anyway since it was still raining, I decided to buy an umbrella and walk towards the place since I was running late. Only for you Nax will I get soaked under the pouring rain...only for you.
Food was great and even though I knew no one, I had a good time talking to new people and playing the games. Ha! I aced the nursery rhymes game and now let's all sing Little Miss Muffet. I got the following as souvenirs:
|a pouch which turns into a...|
|Yey for the plus one!|
|kikay bag holder|
|I finally got the elephant!!!|
For every PhP200 purchase you get to buy this headband, originally priced at PhP 200 at PhP50.
Is it a sign of maturity? That I don't purchase something just because it is a bargain but do not really like it? Wow.
But then again maybe because while scouting for good finds, I was thinking of how large my credit card balance is at the moment. I could actually picture my bill while looking at the price tags. Yeah that's probably it. Carry on friends. The world is still not about to end.
