yesterday, fresh from the natural high of Bry's wedding and winning 400 pesos from our short slot machine stint, i went to church.
Derrick and i went back to Regis. i was glad to attend service here again. although GT was nice, i still feel an affinity with Regis. the sermon was still about Nehemiah, as part of the "Ako, Ikaw, Tayo" series. it was all about rebuilding Jerusalem with everyone taking part in it. towards the end of the service, what i've been waiting for came. someone spoke about making a big decision 7 years ago to be a part of the ministry and i guess he had the task that day to seek for others who would follow suit. i have been thinking about it for days too, wanting to start my transformation. so when the speaker asked for folks to raise their hands, i raised mine. someone approached me right after the service, just like Derrick weeks ago. i have given my contact details, i just don't know which group i'm joining. am i excited? yes. i am still worried about a lot of stuff, but i hope everything turns out well.
after the service Derrick and i had late breakfast at KFC. he had to go to his small group so we separated ways after. i dropped by Fully Booked but didn't see anything i liked so i moved to CBTL. good thing i didn't go home right away because i had time to read the PDL chapters i haven't finished. yeah, i've been behind. would you believe i'm on Day 24??? in a few days i'll finish the book, right on time for my solo journey. while reading, i was tweeting. Noy was not doing anything, so he asked if i wanted to tag along looking for that ukay ukay that Yogs mentioned when we were at Bry's wedding.
around 2:30, Noy came. so glad he arrived early because i didn't want to be the guy with no more drinks still hanging around CBTL. i don't like that. all we knew was that the place was before McDo near FEU in Fairview but we got it wrong. yeah, McDo is everywhere. after walking around Regalado, Yogs called us to say it was in a different place. i kinda remembered Yogs mentioning FCM but i wasn't that sure. hmm. the whole experience was fun, albeit so hot. when we found the place, we knew it was the right one because we saw a group of gay guys getting in. score! we should've gone the day before, because ate said that there were already a lot of stuff bought by parokyanos. the place looked like any regular ukay ukay, it is called wagwagan by the way. there were rows of clothes hanging on aisles and big electric fans to lessen the heat inside. good Lord, there were Zara polos and lots of really good items. i felt like buying but i already had enough jackets and bags that i just let Noy do all the shopping. cheapskates will really enjoy the place. there were also shoes in very good condition that were priced below 1000 bucks. oh jeez, thank God for my willpower.
after that, we went straight to S&R so Noy can apply for membership. the place was packed! we forgot that it was a sweldo weekend. i tagged along because i missed the chicken and pizza. after Noy got his membership card, we went around to check the merchandise. then ate. Noy got a big ass slice of pizza and a really big slice of chicken for less than 200 bucks. i got a pepperoni pizza lang because i was buying a whole chicken for the house. anyway, while waiting for Noy's card, we saw other PMS alumni, Tads and Grace with their kids. oh em. that was nice! after eating (Noy didn't finish his food lol), we got the stuff we needed and went home.
when i arrived home, they had eaten dinner, but i knew they would not resist the S&R chicken. oh my, i've been talking about S&R to them for a while now. i'm glad they liked it.
so much for recaps. i'm off to the bank now to deposit money for my hotel reservations. see you later!
