After the photo shoot with Riveria, she hailed a taxi going to EDSA Shangri-La mall where she will meet some members of the forum where we are all part of. Halie and I had other plans, so even if we wanted to come and join them for the get together, we decided to push through with our own plans - to hunt images for Kristi's June photo hunt, that is. She and I joined the game and since it was a good day (it didn't rain), we wanted to maximize the time.
Even before this meet up, there were already talks of us going to Eastwood City in Libis because it has been ages since I last went there, and I just wanted to visit the place again. Imagine, the last time I was there was in 2004, and it was early morning! The place is actually "asleep" during daytime - the happenings happen during night.
I have already heard of the Philippines' version of the walk of fame, but it was just now that I saw it. I remember people giving negative impression about it, but I actually found it a good thing.
Walking around, Halie and I heard some drums beating, and we were happy that there was "something musical," happening as it was part of images to hunt. It was an anniversary concert of a Christian Church, and we were only able to watch this band perform and it was good. Again, I struggled with the lighting situation, but for a moment it was all about the moment, not the quality of picture that was important.
After the band perform one song, we decided to find a place to eat because we were both hungry already. Halie suggested we eat at Fazoli's Restaurant, and I had their fettuccine Alfredo with pizza as my meal. It was really, really, delicious! I chugged down two glasses of Mountain Dew (my favorite soda next to Pepsi), and I was satisfied.
Walking towards to the fountain (the main reason why we were there), we saw some cars on display and it was just something nice to see and take pictures of. From the cars, we might've had "something blue," and "something yellow" crossed out on our list. :)
As soon as the song was played, Halie and I went to find our spot to take pictures of the fountain. The water actually "dance" to the song, and my only regret was that I didn't find a different location as soon as the second song was played. It would have been better to have pictures on different angles, but I had to brush regrets off for once. I had some good pictures anyway.
The fountain puts on a show every 30 minutes, so realizing that the fountain was already quiet, Halie and I decided it's time to go home. We still took time to take some random pictures, before we took a taxi back to Cubao where we separated ways.
Seeing Eastwood City looking like this was really awesome. I might take my friend K there when he comes to the Philippines in November.
