It comes to a point when you just decided to do something spontaneous one day & learned something new about yourself.
Did house chores in the morning; cleaned my room, changed sheets, did some laundry, organized some stuff in the house, cooked lunch/early dinner & washed the dishes then cleaned some more. I also had a sudden trip to the hardware store to buy a replacement for the broken fixture from my lola’s bathroom. I just had to have the initiative to do it. Mom’s pretty loaded with work & I guess those kind of things are in my responsibility now. After dropping off the new fixture at home, I decided to check out the newly opened mall, Fairview Terraces.
I checked every floor, wandered around & took note of the “soon to open” boutiques. Gosh I felt ecstatic! The mall looked promising. The ambiance feels like Trinoma which is really great! I really like going to Trinoma, than SM Malls simply because I love gardens.
After finishing my window shopping slash tour, I decided to hang out at Gong Cha. It was my first time ever to stay at a milk tea place, alone. I mean, EVER. Ang saya pala, seriously. At first, I feel awkward since I was not that prepared for that kind of moment. I didn’t bring any thing to read, left my headset at home, & even my planner because again, it was a spur-of-the-moment decision. A few minutes passed, I got the hang of it.
A large cup of Earl Grey Milk Tea with Grass Jelly & my phone kept me company for at least an hour. I watched passers by outside & inside the store. Yeah, so basically that’s what I did for an hour. May sound boring to others but the milk tea tasted amazing & I made it last longer than 10 minutes (I drink too fast, I swear).
Then I realized, kaya ko pala tumambay ng mag-isa. I don’t know why but I feel refreshed. It is quite different from my hang outs after every run during mornings, given that I run at the park with trees, butterflies & everything else about nature. I really felt good.
I’m sorry if this post may sound “sabaw" or "mababaw”. I just had to share this here. Another first I guess?
PS: I might be going back to blogging, dear readers. :)
