Last night was fun. My sisters Nyam and Jodie invited me out of the blue to go malling. They also instructed me to bring our Mame along. The mall of choice was SM Manila due to its close proximity to our place. We met at our usual meeting place — in front of Kanzhu restaurant.
Mame and I met up with Nyam first. While waiting for Jodie to arrive, we people-watched and chatted to our heart’s content. Our topics of conversation went from money and shopping to Hollywood and musical instruments. Are you familiar with electronic drums? I’m not. I only know about the normal drums drummers strike to produce a selection of sounds. But if you’re curious, see MF and find out about them. Anyway, we only stopped chatting when we saw Jodie walking towards us.
My three companions shopped for shoes. As for me, I just stared at the pairs upon pairs of lovely shoes neatly displayed on the shoe racks of Payless. Believe me, I almost forgot I was on a shopping fast! Good thing my Mame kept on reminding me about it. She said I should never give in to temptation because my self-imposed shopping challenge is ending in five days. Okay, fine. Haha.
After dinner at Sbarro (it was Mame’s first time there and she liked the food so yay to me who suggested that we eat there!), I thought we were already going home. But then my sister Nyam still wanted to check out SM department store to shop for more shoes. (She was able to get two more pairs.) We ended up staying there until the mall’s closing time and got home at almost 10pm.
Our impromptu date made me a bit tired but I sure had fun. Spending time with our family and creating happy memories with them are always a worthwhile activity, right?
