Back Treatment

Already made reservation yesterday.  This would be the first time since the fire that I would take my back treatment.

It was raining hard.  Good thing when I went down, the rain already stopped and there are taxis along Buendia waiting for passengers.  Took a taxi to Glorietta.  Waited at Mercury Drug for the mall to open.  As soon as it did, went to KARADA.

Instead of having lunch after my treatment, went to the activity center where there are Fuji cameras on sale.  My Instax Mini 90 is working fine but my Instax Wide 300 is not.  I wasn't able to find my Instax SQ10; thus, decided to buy one.  Aside from the freebies, also got a 10% discount.  Also put a screen protector on the camera's LCD display by my suki.

Had late lunch for spinach and feta cheese ravioli plus warm water at Bistro Ravioli.  Bought small bilao of Razon's pancit luglug, one big bucket of Jollibee ChickenJoy for our meryenda at home.

Since there is no taxi at the taxi stand, took Grab instead.

Ant-Man and The Wasp Return

Today, will return the items lent to us by our aunt which we can use in the condo unit while we are waiting for our furnitures, specifically, our bunk bed.  So, off we go and returned the folding chairs, mattresses, pillow case, blanket, mattress cover, Stanley tape measure.  But first, stopped by McDonald's along Sucat for breakfast before proceeding to my aunt's house. Only the kids of my niece from cousin (and their "angels") were around to receive the item.

Next stop is at Zamora to check on my cameras that were saved from the fire.  Got the Instax Mini 90 and Instax Wide 300.  Will have to buy films to test.  Dropped off Lyn by the condo before proceeding to Glorietta.

Not sure if this is the first movie I watched since we transferred to the condo unit; but, bought discounted movie ticket for Ant-Man and the Wasp.  Will take my lunch after the movie.

Because of the incident in London, Scott Lang is under house arrest.  He is also not supposed to be in contact with Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym.  But because of the mission of the two, he has to suit up again to fight alongside with The Wasp.  Like!

Then, had my late Mongolian lunch at Food Choices and dessert at Baskin Robbins.  Today, I would be buying items needed for recording the rent.  Went to National Bookstore to buy record logbook, stamp date, stamp pad, stamp ink, copy paper.  Left my purchases at The Landmark's package counter. Attended the anticipated Mass at Mary, Mother of Hope Chapel and we had dinner at Phobac.  Bought groceries at The Landmark's supermarket.  Passed by Pet Express to buy diapers for Tsubasa before proceeding home.

Senior Birthday Blessing

Among the three of us, only I was invited to a birthday party by a senior lady (Mila).  Don't plan to disappoint so will attend.  But, today is also the blessing of my condo unit--it will just be us.  So, must watch out all the activities to make things smooth.

  1. Be at the mall by 10AM as it opens so I can buy a gift for the birthday celebrant.  Originally planned for a cake.  Changed my mind given that it would be hard for her to carry with her gifts.  Decided to buy one big box of Ferrero Rocher and have it gift-wrapped.
  2. Attend the lunch birthday party at Luk Yuen in Glorietta.  (Was able to buy other things before going to Luk Yuen.)
  3. Lyn to bring Theo at Pet Express for lodging.  Tsubasa will stay at the condo.
  4. Leave Glorietta to go back to the condo.  (Learned that Kuya Ben has arrived to install the grills.  Now, everything is complete.)
  5. Delivery of Amber's Restaurant around 1:30PM.
  6. Edgar to pick-up Fr. Raffy at Don Bosco Parish Church around 2:30PM.
  7. The blessing at 3PM.
  8. Partake of the food.
  9. Join in bringing back Fr. Raffy to Don Bosco Parish Church.  He still has another house blessing to go to.
  10. Drop me off at SM Makati to buy a few things before attending the anticipated Mass.
  11. Lyn who to pick-up Theo at Pet Express.
  12. Attend the anticipated Mass.
  13. Dinner at the Pancake House.
  14. Buy a few items at The Landmark's supermarket.
  15. Proceed home.

Finally, the (Espresso 4) bed we ordered online has arrived.  My niece received it and she was able to request that the steps be switched to the right (instead of left)--a consolation given we were sleeping on the floor with borrowed mattresses for more than two weeks.

Now, I can have the condo unit blessed.


  • Request for a priest to perform blessing
  • Order food at Amber's Restaurant

Pet Medicine

Wanted to buy the medicine of Tsubasa and Theo.  A big one is available in Pet Express at SM Hypermart.  Will look for smaller size in Pet Express at SM Mall of Asia.  Was able to buy one.

Then passed by our house--demolition is ongoing.  The city's engineering office already called our attention that the house should already be demolished because it is hazardous given that it was gutted by fire.  Checked out clothes that can still be used.

Went to Cash and Carry to have lunch at its food court and was dropped off at Glorietta.  Was able to buy another shoes for office at Via Venetto, which is on sale.  Also, wanted to buy the Magic Mouse for my MacBook Air that somehow is still working even it was damped with water by the firemen--was able to purchase at Switch, which costs lower than the other Apple reseller.  Also bought a handheld letter opener/ shredder at Noteworthy in Greenbelt 5.

Attended the anticipated Mass at the Mary, Mother of Hope Chapel in The Landmark.  It is the start of the novena for the feast of Mary, Mother of Hope.  Then, had dinner at Kaya.

Bought groceries at The Landmark's supermarket before proceeding home.

Originally, they said there is no available line.  Then they called yesterday that there is and, what was agreed, they would be installing it on Monday.

Lo!  Their technician called to say they can do the installation today.

Did not come smoothly since the landline which comes with it is able to dial out but unable to accept incoming calls.  The technician has to leave for he has a 2PM schedule.

Around 5PM, the internet stopped--actually, rebooted.  I tested the landline, it is now working as expected.  Then, the technician came back.  He tested and everything was OK.

Good thing, too!  Because if there is a problem on either one, they will have to cancel the request for an internet connection.

More Delivery

The cabinets and shoe rack I ordered from The Landmark, and computer table and computer chair from SM will be delivered today.

My niece also shared me her Netflix account.  Was able to cast the Netflix show on the TV we were able to save from the fire.

Both my nieces have to leave, leaving our "angels" to receive the item.  The computer table and chair arrived first.  The items from The Landmark arrived when my niece Pam is already at the condo.

Understand we needed a printer and a fast internet since my two nieces would be working from home.

Bought a Canon MG3070S which only costs P2,999.00.  It can copy, print, scan wirelessly.

Also, went to Globe for their Globe At Home product which has 5MBPS unlimited internet with no lock-up.  The important thing is the no lock-up for we do not know when we can build our house and transfer there.
