Andee's 9th

Andee's birthday today is 'gloomy' by her words. Lagi nalang daw umuulan pag birthday niya. Well, baby, rainy season naman kasi eh. Their Tito Cak was supposed to treat them to Enchanted Kingdom, but the rain kept pouring the whole morning till after lunch and we have to have put Plan B into action. 'Di tayo babayad ng 600php para sumilong lang!!!' was Cak's battlecry.

Took the kids to SM Mall of Asia, apparently on the top 3 list of largest malls in the world, with SM Megamall and SM North Edsa included in the Top 10. There's unusually less people here, part perhaps obviously of the rains. Have to visit again without the kids. Haven for window shoppers as well as those who'd enjoy a fantastic view of Manila Bay (nevermind if it's a bit murky..di naman halata). Anyway... watched Deep Sea 3D at the IMAX Theater and it was a worthwhile experience. For the first time, Andee nor Diego demanded to go to the bathroom for a leak. Unlike when we would watch regular movie screenings, where almost every 20 minutes or so, they'd ask to go to the bathroom.

On the way home, we dropped by Tiendesitas to just look around. The kids were so 'high' with the Pet Village. Funny because even the cutest dog would make Andee and Diego take cover. Palibhasa nasanay sila sa pusa. As expected, we need to literally carry them out when they began begging for either a rabbit or a hamster!

Had a final stopover at McDonald's Marcos Highway at around 9:30pm. Some customer service. After we ordered, Cak at the last moment presented mama's senior citizen card when the service crew started printing the receipt. He said that once the receipt has been printed out, the card can't be honored anymore. What?!?! So I asked if they can void it. He asked the service crew beside him about it and said that it's not possible anymore. Rather baffled, I asked for a manager. I 've been with retailing for more than 13 years and I can't seem to grasp why they can't honor the card. Wawa naman some senior citizens if at the last minute they suddenly realized to present their card. Anyway... the service crew spoke with his manager, whose busy at the softdrink dispenser and I just saw the manager shook her head. Wala man lang courtesy to face us!!!! Didn't even give us a valid reason except that the receipt has been printed out!!! Pasalamat sila I wasn't in the mood.
