I’ve been spending my past weekends at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA). I even have a “secret” parking space at the parking lot already because that’s where I ALWAYS park whenever I’m at the aforementioned mall. I swear, dun talaga ako lagi nag–papark! Kung anong floor at saan dun… SECRET!!! Haha! 😛
Don’t get me wrong. I love going to other malls, too. During weekdays, you’d most likely spot me at Glorietta or Greenbelt — because my workplace is just minutes away from them! During weekends, I usually go to MOA and/or Robinsons Place Manila! Emphasis on the “and/or” because there are really days that I go to both malls in ONE DAY! I call it my very own “mall-hopping!” =))
But anyway, I think November 26, 2011 tops my “weekend mall gimik” by far. Why? Simply because I spent both DAY and NIGHT at MOA! Hence the title: ako na talaga ang MUKHANG MOA! Wahahahaha!
MOA by DAY
I woke up extra early that day (3:50AM) to prepare for one of the things in my bucket list:
Yep! One of the things I want to do before I die is RUN FOR A CAUSE! And yes, I was finally able to do that by participating in the HSBC Anniversary Fun Run, which raised funds for the Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation (SAS), “a not-for-profit, professional Philippine organization that promotes the love and habit of reading in Filipino children in line with its vision to build a nation of readers.“ 🙂
It was my very first run, and I’m happy to say that I survived! Of course I couldn’t have done it without my friends Danica and Tinah:
By the way, the (raffle) grand prize was:
Of course I did NOT win! 😦 Oh well papel. At least Danica and I had our consolation prize:
CHOS!!! Hahaha! And that’s it! But just because I’ve crossed “run for a cause” off my bucket list, doesn’t mean I won’t do it again! Of course this was just the first of (my) many runs! Mooore runs to cooome! 😀
MOA by NIGHT
After the run, I went home to catch some ZZZsss. But when the sun finally set, I went back to catch my friend Marta‘s birthday dinner at Yakimix! 😉
Aside from celebrating a birthday, one of the things I loved about this night was our “instant” college reunion! Gaawwwd, I simply love these people! It’s just like college ALL. OVER. AGAIN!!!
Sooo… Thanks a lot Henry Sy! Thanks for making one awesome place where people can spend good times with great people — MOA!!!
Bonus: Did you know that Henry Sy‘s net worth is around $7 billion AND Steve Jobs‘ net worth is around $8 billion*?
Wala lang. Ang taray lang ng SM! Lumelevel sa Apple! Chos! =))
*The aforementioned people’s “net worth” is different from that of their companies’.
