I got home at around 6 o'clock in the morning. I was able to get a good sleep while on the bus, so when I got home, I wasn't really feeling tired or whatever. I was just angry and relieved at the same time when two men riding on a motorcycle tried to snatch my luggage. Good thing I was able to get a good grip on it and that probably it was way too heavy for them, so it wasn't really snatched - although the luggage got dragged in the road.
Anyway, three hours after getting home, I received a text message from my ex-boyfriend from Dumaguete saying his dad was at a convention and he had some free time, and he was asking if it's okay for us to go out on a lunch date. Because he and his dad were staying at the Richmonde Hotel in Ortigas and that there was an event at the Megatrade Halls of SM Megamall, I decided to meet up with him so later I could meet up with sister for the event.
It was a nice lunch, but sadly my ex had to go to where his father was because he needed to fill up form. My ex's father had a stroke and cannot write anymore, so my ex and I decided we should just call it a day and he would just catch up on us if time would allow it.
My sister arrived in SM Megamall around 2PM. We immediately head off the Megatrade Halls and wowed ourselves with lots of foods coming from different regions in the country. It was such a nice event, as most shops offer free food sampling. Actually, with the amount of food samplings, one can come to the event very hungry and leave the place completely full.
So many great foods, but the food that stood out for us was the Tahong Chips (Mussels Chips) from the province of Cavite. It was so good we decided to buy a bag. We also bought ourselves a cup of coffee each. For 39 pesos, we were able to have a good tasting coffee - and we can also take home the mug!
There were two cooking demo on that day - one was done by students of a culinary school, the other was done by celebrity chef Nino Logarta, who has a cooking show on TV called, "Daddylicious." He prepared two dishes, and although I wasn't able to taste the meatball on his first dish, I was still able to taste the young papaya salad that came with it. His other dish - a chicken one was something so good, I might try it one of these days. Best of all, we were able to have a picture with chef. I love being a foodie!
Sister and I decided to eat dinner there as it was getting near dinner time. My ex boyfriend wasn't able to come with us anymore, but it was okay. His father needed him more, actually. I am just happy we were able to meet today.
