Woke-up early saturday morning to meet Pau (my cousin) and Lyndon (her husband) at the airport. We went to their hostel and spent most of the time at the Mall of Asia. Gawd! I have to say that I still did not conquer the said mall. It is too big to be conquered! :) So, pau bought me a pair of havaianas... I was hesitant at first to choose but she insisted of buying me one. I chose a grey pair... neutral color. :) Anyways, I am glad she bought me that pair. I would delay the “urge” of buying one since I feel like havs are just another slippers -- SPARTAN (I tend to associate slippers with). For me havs (and other expensive slippers) are extravagance. We spent the whole day in MOA window shopping and bingeing on some palatable stuff (like Wendy’s and Sakae Sushi). Anyways, we never really conquered the said mall!!! Have you (especially filipinos who live in and near metro manila) really explored MOA?

Although i go to Manila of a monthly basis... i have never been to the Mall of Asia... but i have seen it from afar... my trip to Metro Manila would only be within the Makati area... but i would to go to MOA one day... i know that because of its size... a person will not be able to explore the whole area... but i am willing to try even just half of it...

Trying is nice. Actually, it's nice to explore the place minus the people inside it. Though it is quite big, I feel like every space of it is occupied with people.

Whoa... MOA is too big to be conquered in a day! Hahaha... i think i can safely say i have been to every corner of SM Megamall but never had the chance to explore MOA for real... it's too far from where i am so i can't really go and window shop and look around MOA all the time... hahaha.

I think last saturday was my 6th time of being at MOA. I really can count on my fingers the number of times I have been there.

There's this guy in Mall of Asia who conquered me lol! He was getting close to me then i saw him move his eyebrows as a gesture of greetings then to the point of talking me. The point is, we don't know eachother. At least i don't know him for sure. I froze for awhile thinking who the guy was lol! Up to now it's still a mystery. he must have mistaken me for someone else lol! Mall of Asia's too big alright(...i'm from zamboanga city so any mall in manila would be too big for me lol!. People were talking about the seaside but i was not able to go there because my brother who accompanied me was more keen on walking resting for awhile at the skating rink. I can safely say i conquered Festival Mall instead. lol!

Gosh! I love the skating rink... I have this feeling that the slight thought of MOA makes me tired already. It's a nice place and a huge place but people are so everywhere too in that place.
