Already set an appointment.  But first, brunch of Eggs Ben at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.

Hair-pampering day.  Went to Menage Premiere Salon (formerly Chronicles Salon).

Decided not to have lunch since already ordered merienda at Yellow Cab for delivery at home around 3PM.  Just bought a Globe nano SIM for my new phone before proceeding home.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

First stop is Maxicare at Makati Medical Center.  Was referred to referred to Dr. Rowena Genuino.

Took a taxi to Glorietta where I plan to spend the day before the anticipated Mass.  Bought discounted movie ticket for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.  Today, plan to buy amenities I would be using for may scheduled vacation.  Have already booked a ticket for Samar (we were invited by friends we met in the European tour I joined) and for Hong Kong.

Had lunch at The Landmark's food court.  Was thinking of buying the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10. Would it be in Hong Kong or here?  Already booked tour packages in Hong Kong--Disneyland, Macau and Lantau Island.  Besides, I would feel comfortable buying electronic items here for the warranty.  So looked if it is already available.  And it is!  Think...

Back to my movie.  Special operatives Valerian and Laureline were tasked to identify the dark force that threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home of a thousand planets.  Sci-fi, action with humor, great visuals.  Just for the performance of Bubbles, the movie is a must-watch.

Then bought the vivo Y53.  Was thinking of buying the Discover Hong Kong Tourist SIM for 5 days, and I do not want to touch my iPhone for it (there's no internet only SIM just like Singapore where I can use my WiFi modem).  Will use this new Android phone if I need to call locally in Hong Kong as well as use it as a hotspot.

Attended the anticipated Mass and had dinner at Bistro Ravioli.  Since the driver would be late to pick me up, decided to buy already the Instax SQ10 at Henry's Professional.  Last stock.  Paid in cash to get a discount.  The staff suggested that I look for Doray when I told them I plan to put a screen protector for the camera's LCD.

Brought groceries at The Landmark before proceeding home.

Wish Upon

Walked to Ayala Center.

Decided to watch Wish Upon.  Given the screening time, will have to eat my lunch inside the cinema.    Bought a discounted movie ticket, to-go at Wendy's then to my movie.

Teenager Clare gets an early birthday gift from his dad, who found an old music box supposedly who grants seven wishes to its owner.  Too late, she discovers there's a bloody price for every wish she asks for.  Not scary.

After, window-shopped.  Was able to buy a solar powered dynamo USB powered AM/FM radio good for emergency at True Value, which is on sale.

Attended the anticipated Mass.  Then, we had dinner at Phobac, dessert at Baskin Robbins and grocery at The Landmark.  Passed by Pet Express before proceeding home.

Last week, whenever I stand up, my lower back aches but pain is gone as soon as I walk.  Decided to do my treatment today.  As soon as the mall opened, went to KARADA for my treatment.

And as usual, my lunch is at Bistro Ravioli.  I am not supposed to drink something cold after four (4) hours of treatment.  Bought a small bilao of pancit luglug from Razon's and a Chickenjoy bucket from Jollibee for our meryenda before proceeding home.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Already made an appointment with my dentist, so went to Catipon Dental Clinic for my 10AM appointment.  Was early by 15 minutes but there are already many patients.  The tooth-filling in my molar tooth was chipped that it has to be replaced.  Also had my teeth cleaned.  Was nice about my dentist is that he has a good sense of humor.

Finished early, I would be able to watch a movie.  And it would be Spider-Man:  Homecoming.  Bought a discounted movie ticket, had Mongolian lunch at Food Choices after my movie, and dessert at Baskin Robbins.  Since I have time before my movie, ticked-off some items in my list:  made reservation at KARADA for tomorrow, magnetized  tip Phillips screwdriver at True Value, catalog brown envelope at Office Warehouse in The Landmark.

After "fighting" alongside Iron Man against Captain America, Peter Parker is excited for his next mission--to the point of resigning from his clubs in school so that he would be ready when "called".  For the meantime, he is "your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man".  During his watch, he witnessed a bank robbery using out-of-this world weapons.  Doing his own investigation, he come a cross villain Vulture.  Love the appearance of Tony Stark / Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.,) as Peter's mentor. "If you're nothing without this suit, then you shouldn't have it."  Luv this version of Spider-Man!  #ThumbsUp

Attended the anticipated Mass, had dinner at Pancake House and bought groceries at The Landmark's supermarket.

Visited Vangie, my brother's secretary, at Makati Medical Center.  She was scheduled for 1PM to be operated on for her stage 2 breast cancer.  Missed her by 10 minutes.  Will visit her again with my "angels" after my anticipated Mass.

Instead of walking, took a taxi to Glorietta.  Must be the heat that I feel I'll be tired walking.  Decided not to watch a movie.  Had Mongolian lunch at Food Choices, dessert at Baskin Robbins, bought long-nosed plier at The Landmark's hardware section, inks for my Canon printer at CompLink, lemonade at Jack's Lemonade then to Glorietta 5 for the anticipated Mass.  Noticed whenever I drink lemonade, I "move". Hope that's healthy.  Weh!

After the anticipated Mass, had dinner at Bistro Ravioli.  Was supposed to be picked-up at The Landmark with my "angels".  Lo!  My niece also joined.  Since I received an SMS message that Vangie is still in the recovery room (was advised earlier she would be at the recovery room for two hours), I have them have dinner at The Landmark's food court.  Bought groceries and proceeded back to Makati Medical Center to visit Vangie.  For someone whose been operated on, she never stopped talking.  LOL.  Pray that her biopsy will show that she does not need to undergo chemotherapy.

Transformers: The Last Knight

Because I reported for work on a weekend, able to offset it for today.  It is a very long weekend for me because of the holiday yesterday.

Went to Maxicare at Makati Medical Center.  Was referred to a surgeon.  No need to operate.  Will just have to monitor if the condition improves.

Walked to Metrobank to deposit the rent; then, walked to Ayala Center via the Dela Rosa elevated walkway.

First stop is Glorietta 4 Cinema's ticket counter.  Bought a discounted movie ticket for Transformers: The Last Knight.  Chose the 12NN screening.  Then, had Mongolian lunch at Food Choices.

Without a leader (Optimus Prime), humans became at war with the Transformers.  But Cade Yeager continue to believe in them that he tries to give them safe haven.  And the reason they keep coming to Earth?  It all started in ancient England during the time of King Arthur and the "Staff of Merlin".  Fast moving, humor, lots of action.

After, had late dessert at Baskin Robbins before I was picked-up to proceed to Honda Makati to pay for the repair of my car.  Edgar the driver will pick it up tomorrow since the car is color-coding today.
