Mall of Asia on a Friday

Going to Mall of Asia (MOA) on a Friday isn’t always a bright idea. We just came back from the place and it was filled with people dining out and prolly doing some last minute shopping before going home and spending another fun weekend. Traffic was pretty bad on our way home especially as we passed thru CCP Complex. And to think the much-hyped pyromusical wasn’t starting in the next 12 hours.

Heavy traffic and big crowd aside, our trip to MOA was still fun. I was with the boyfriend and his family. We had dinner at Kenny Rogers and I immensely enjoyed my huge Cheeseburger meal.

Right now I’m craving for some pistachio ice cream. Yum!

I have friends who have suffered from acne in their youth and swear by the wonders of technology in helping them become acne-free. The treatments available today work like magic. I could hardly see the traces of acne on their faces. And just like me, they continue to eat nuts as part of a healthy diet.
