Yesterday morning we met up with some of Denis’ friends from grade school. We went to a fancy hotel and had their breakfast buffet. It was expansive.
I was excited to see that they had champurado. It’s like oatmeal made from rice, if the oatmeal was floating in chocolate soup.
After breakfast we went to the mall to walk around a bit.
Then we jumped in a Grab car (like an Uber), and drove to a different mall. I was excited, because I saw this mall from our ferry boat the other day. It’s really unusual-looking from the outside.
When we got there, we ate some more. This time it was a dim sum restaurant. There was so… much… food…
Then we shopped some more. We spent a lot of time in a shop where all the pictures on the wall were of thin Koreans. I felt a little out-of-place.
But then I saw a shirt on the “on sale” rack that I could wear for Aloha Friday. It was only 499 pesos! I bought it.
After that, we ate some more. This time, it was halo halo, a frozen Filipino confection. It was tasty, but I was so full…
We took a Grab car back to the condo we are staying at, and everyone came upstairs. Then Denis’ friend’s son, who had been with us all day, went out to get Jollibee. Then we ate some more.
There was lots of talking and laughing into the evening, most of which I didn’t understand because it wasn’t English. It was still fun though. What a good day!
