Maxi's Fifth Day In The Philippines

by - Friday, February 05, 2010

Philippine Time: 9:00AM

Mission accomplished! Oh what a beautiful day!

On the fifth day of my Philippine vacation, I managed to wake up early today for the very first time. I chatted with my boyfriend (miss you Bebe!) up to 4 o'clock this morning *yawn* (blame that on the 7 hour time zone difference). I actually had my phone's alarm clock function set at 7AM just for fun. At 7, I successfully turned off the noisy alarm and went back to sleep. However, an hour and fifteen minutes later I heard my tummy's growling sound, left the bed and head off to the kitchen.

(the peaceful neighborhood of Bulacan)
The dining table had pandesal*, cheese, butter and coffee for my breakfast. However, I wanted to have something more so I opened the fridge, grabbed some eggs, took a pan, placed it on the gas stove, turned on the knob and had the look of disappointment on my face. We ran out of LPG**! My brother immediately ordered a replacement by just dialing a number on his mobile and 15 minutes later came Mr. LPG delivery guy knocking on our apartment's front door. It was a relief to know that a tiny petroleum distribution company in our area is only a few minutes away from our neighborhood.

It's a nice feeling to not fail on what look like tiny details of today. I am so glad to know that my day has started right. I've finally woken up early and my stomach and taste buds are all satisfied now. Wonderful!

*Pandesal (Spanish: pan de sal salt bread) is a rounded bread usually eaten by Filipinos. (Wikipedia.com)
**LPG- Liquefied petroleum gas
