Lunch Time..

About two weeks ago, I received a chat message from by friend Rica asking me to have lunch with her and Joana on the 20th. I thought we won't push thru with it until last Friday when Rica sent me a confirmation message. 

And then I asked Rica, "What time?". She replied, "Lunch time?" 

"What time ang lunch?haha.." 

"Hahaha.. 12."

And I joked and told her that sometimes lunch could be at 3pm!

And hey, I was right! Haha.. 

I woke up Saturday morning around 5am. Come 10am, I was feeling really sleepy but I had to fight it because I need to prepare for my lunch date. I was running a bit late but I was not able to text the two because I didn't have load for my prepaid phone. Purita amor, right? I left home few minutes past 12nn, passed by a nearby store to buy load, and rode the bus bound to Robinsons Galleria.

I received the prepaid load almost around 1pm. I texted the two and asked them if they're there or if they're on their way. No replies. I thought they may just be busy strolling around the Mall. I arrived and texted them again. Still no reply. 

We were supposed to go to Megamall and eat at Pepper Lunch. But I decided to stay in Galleria while waiting for their texts. I went window shopping and looked for shoes. I received a text from Rica around 2pm saying she's still at home and was waiting for Joana's message. And then I received a text from Joana saying she's also at home with a weird question.. "why?"

Apparently, Rica texted the old number of Joana, and Joana had no idea that we are to pursue with the plan! Rica was apologetic though, she said she'll be on her way. I had the feeling that she just woke up, haha! She worked the night before so I understood. And Joana said she'll still come but she had to prep first.

At first, I got annoyed. Eventually, I was just laughing at myself. Well, I missed my two college bestfriends so it was not really the best time for some non-sense fight, right? I decided to just enjoy myself while waiting. I thought I could watch a movie but there was none that fits my timeframe. So I just strolled a bit more and went to Saizen to check out cute Japanese stuff. And then I wanted to eat ice cream at DQ but it was jam-packed. I had McFlurry and McFloat instead at where else but McDonalds..

To cut the story short, Rica and Joana arrived almost 4pm. I still wanted to watch a movie so we had a quick brainstorming of what to watch - Taken 2, Pitch Perfect or This Guy's In Love with you Mare.  Taken 2 won with two votes, mine and Rica's! We were laughing at Joana because we thought she didn't want to watch a movie but she arrived with a bag of popcorn!

After the movie, we ate at Papa John's Pizza.  We had the 9" Super Papa's pizza, complete with the pepperoncini and the garlic sauce, and Penne Meatball Bolognaise.

Super Papa's Php370
Meatball Bolognaise Php200

I couldn't stay any longer since I have work at 7pm that night. Sad! And these two have more time to bond, unfair! They should give me a treat next time, right?

Lesson Learned: Lunch time is no longer the usual 12nn. I should know that already! Why? Because I've been working for 6 years at a BPO company and our one hour break which could be anytime.. may it be 9pm or 12mn or 3am.. is called LUNCH! :D


Ciao!

  14. Ms. Joanne you really have a pretty smile. I like it when you smile, your eyes are smiling too. Bolero ko no? hahahaha! But keep smiling, it makes other feel good.

    And talk about Filipino time. Hahaha! It frustrates me lalu na kung may iba ka pang dapat gawin. I usually set dates with friends on days when I really have nothing else to do because there will always be those two hours of waiting for their tardiness, another hour for debating where to go, and 30 minutes for deciding what to eat once we're alrady there.

    If I still have work or some other appointments I make sure that I invite those who are on time, or at least those who are usually just 15 minutes late. It's not like I'm the most punctual person on earth pero nakakasira talaga ng araw kapag ganun.

    1. Totoo ba? Hahaha! Ang laki pa naman ng smile ko, tipong kita pati gums ko tas nawawala yun eyes, natatakpan ng eyebags, buti may naka-appreciate naman pala! :)

      Haha, ako rin naman, may mga times na nale-late ako, pero ako yung tipong nagsasabi agad habang maaga pa, set ng expectation ng kasama, ayoko kasi ng feeling ng nagpapahintay at ng naghihintay, hehe..
