Blog #37: Back in ManilaTo see all of Bobbie's Family Girl Blogs, click on this link:
Moe n I arrived in Manila this morning - about 6AM Sunday (or 6PM Saturday EST). Another four weeks here in sunny Manila.
Anyway, we arrived with minimum baggage again (so there'll be room for more new stuff), so we got through all the customs stuff et cetera fairly quickly. Stil, after our driver picked us up at the airport, we got to our house at about ten. We ordered some take-out food from a place call Chow King (cute name, huh?). Orange chicken, fried rolls, chicken noodle soup and chinese fried rice. It wasn't the best meal (sorta like a chinese TV dinner), but we weren't picky. We then went to bed for a nap.
It's about three in the afternoon. Moe's still sleeping, but I should wake her up in a few hours so we can clean up, tidy up the house a bit, and be ready when Manny comes by with Tintin, and we can go out for dinner.
It's Palm Sunday (as most Catholics and hardcore Christians know), which is the first day of Holy Week (I guess I'll miss the service today, maybe I'll go to church tomorrow), so it's almost guaranteed that there'll be a lot of people out.
Tintin texted we're going to an itslian-type place called Balducci's and it's supposed to be good, but no need to get all dressed up. It' not really fine dining like I know it, but that's ok, so long as the food's tasty.
It's pretty bright and warm here, as usual. Wish it was like this at home all the time. And since I heard most of Holy Week is a holiday here, it's Beach Time! (The office doesn't need to know heehee.) Gotta ask Tintin where to get swim suits and stuff.
