lepakking with Relatives @ Manila

The itinerary of my 4 day trip in Manila is pretty simple - to hang out with my pinsans (ie cousins), meet my uncles and aunties and simply have a great time.

Of course, I would love to hang out at the beach more tapi takkan aku tak jumpa cousin2 kesayangan kan????

My cousin Chico is already buzzing about my trip a few days before my flight, and he had (dearly) cleared his nursing schedule to be with me....

*me love you much grande cuz!Heheheheeh!*

By the time I arrived at Clark its already noon.....where Bailey was already waiting for me at the arrival hall, then we went straight for lunch at Holiday Plaza.

Bummer. Nothing much there.

Later in the evening, I went to Makati and met my other cousins and my Tita Chi at Greenbelt 3.

*Meet Francis and my Tita Chi*

*My cousin Chico - who is also a camwhore like me*

And of course, dah lepak Greenbelt 3, harusla lepak kat tempat favourite aku....

VIA MARE!!!!!!!

Woohoo....

Apa yang best sangat kat Via Mare?

*Mango sticky rice*

*Bibingka!*

Bibingka ni lebih kurang macam traditional apam la, made with coconut and duck egg (kalau nak yang lagi kaw sila order bersama queso de bola, ohhhhh superb!!!!) and served withgrated coconut on top.

A.must.have.kalau.visit.philippines.....kalau tak RUGI!!!!!

*us at Via Mare...the girl at the back is my cousin Vernice*

We didn't do much after...but caught 17 Again (starring Zac Efron...woot!) at the cinema's after dinner.

*oh Zac Efron sangat kiut aku sangat soka!!!!!*

To tell you the truth, by the end of my first day I was slump! I was tired and over-exhausted (from 3 days non-stop berjimba-bershopping-berjumpa rakan2) and I tido macam orang mati the next day till 3pm.

Hahahahaah!

*muka gembira + rambut menggerbang baru bangun tido the next day!*

Still, I woke up on time. Elok-elok je bangun and mandi Bailey ajak pergi shopping kat Tiendesitas.

*odw to Tiendesitias - gila saiko mamat ni tengah holiday pun berlagak bos! Ooops, aku sorang je yang holiday kan?*

Sorry, no piccas kat Tiendesitas - sebab Chico datang lambat, and tangan I penat pegang beg baju yang banyak! Heheheehh! Takde la banyak, I grab a couple of dresses je. Still, I hate having to take piccas and carry shopping bags.

Apa? Mana Bailey?

Dia lepak minum kopi kat one of the coffee shops kat sana, and just left me to brave the boutiques.

Oh yeah - Tiendesitas have all the independant boutiques....row's and row's of shops with clothes so trendy I macam nak beli semua! Hahahahah! And the price is pretty tempting too. Lets just say that for the price I pay for a dress at Cats Whiskers, I can definitely fine something better here.

*Not that I don't like Cats Whiskers anymore okeh....ia akan tetap jadi one of my favvy local boutiqes ever!

As soon as Chico joined me we went to Greenhills....

*ke sini sebab nak cari shirt utk Cik Kiah*

Sampai sini rambang mata lagi!!!!! Sigh!!!!!

Greenhils have a lot of stalls (ala2 Pratunam Mall kat Bangkok) that sells....well...everything under the sun.

Kalau datang sini bersedia la dengan duit yang banyak sebab percayalah.....you would be tempted not only to buy things that you can put on you, but also things you can put in your house, your car...(your mother in law?....hahahaha!).

*odw home*

That day alone, I came back with....

1. Cik Kiah's stash

2. Bangles - RM200 bucks worth (this is for me. My cousin even bought me a silver charm bracelet here....lovely!)

3. Black and white floral satin dress

4. Black satin top (you will see me putting it on the last day of my Ho Chi Minh trip!)

5. A pair of bikini! *woohooo..tercapai cita2 untuk membeli....bila berani mau memakai?*

Penat okeh. Esok nak shopping lagi.

*grin*
