Day 1 of PH Wedding Vacation: Errands

I'm not entirely sure what to call this day. With 2 hours of sleep, I was awake at 4:00 AM. The first order of business is to have breakfast. We waited for freshly cooked fried chicken from Ministop. Yes, my first meal back in Manila is Ministop fried chicken.

We went to the 7:15 AM Mass in Greenbelt Chapel - starting our vacation right. We went to Landmark to do some grocery. Then, to NAIA Terminal 1 off we go, to pick-up parents and siblings who arrived with China Airlines.

They were exhausted. After much discussion and debate, the five of us (Jomar, me, Ate Ro, Kuya, and Baya) went to Shakey's for lunch. Mojos! Mother requested Chowking noodles to go. Thankfully, my husband is such a trooper and went to buy the Chowking while we finish up lunch.

Then, we went with Kuya to Gardini Fashion Center to do his only fitting for the wedding. Thankfully, everything fits perfectly, and they just need to finish it. We also changed things from a necktie to a bowtie for the entourage. It looks so much better!

After that, we went to SM North EDSA (driving through Espana and Quezon Avenue) much to Kuya's delight. I needed to buy my contact lenses. It was already 4:00 PM! We were initially planning to go to Fairview to meet a friend, but it's too late now.

We decided to just go back to the Pioneer area.

Jomar and I had a fantastic dinner with Happy Friends - Mama Chelle, Mitch, and Wayne at Lee Hak. My head hurts (from the lack of sleep), but the yummy tinola (chicken ginger) soup made it all better. We went to Starbucks afterwards, and I took a 5-minute nap leaning on the wall. How embarrassing! That's when we called it a night so that Jomar and I can catch up on much-needed sleep.
