Want to go for a walk?

Monday, national holiday, death anniversary of Ninoy Aquino. Oncci begged off and remained home to catch some Z's.

The rest of us, Mom, Dad, Josh, Jouie and I, we WALKED around Manila. It was like some challenge. Wore flats, carted lots of water in my bag, and tried not to mind that I was outvoted by my sister and my parents who are still wrapped around her finger the Manila Zoo is in need of a major redo.

From the zoo, where Mom fed a very dexterous chimp, we went to Rizal Park and then to Manila Ocean Park... but haha, by the time, our cash wasn't enough for all five of us. Poor Jouie. We should have researched the Ocean Park first so we'd have been prepared for the entrance fee. /headdesk

We rode a calesa back to Rizal Park. Because both Jouie and I were whining about our feet and legs. It was a laugh fest. The coachman had a strange call. "ARUUUY!" In Filipino, this is a variation to 'aray', which is our counterpart to 'ouch'. LOL. Jouie and Josh giggled every time. In between worrying about the horse, and the carriage toppling over, I laughed right along. I'm glad I went.

Tuesday, Dad goes back to KSA. /sigh
