My good friend Kitten and I were supposed to go out yesterday but she had some unexpected things come up. I needed to buy some stuff as I am packing for a trip and so I went alone.
I actually enjoy going out alone as much as going out with girlfriends or MB. It gives me a chance to eat whatever I like to eat and explore new restos. It’s also nice to take my time when shopping.
After paying my bills, I had a late lunch at Toast Box:
I love Hainanese Chicken. I sometimes cook this dish but it’s too tedious so I settle for eating out. I’m so happy that there are now restaurants that serve proper Hainanese Chicken. Well, except that one above was sooooo bloody. It was swimming in blood when I pulled the meat apart so I had it changed. You know what Gordon Ramsay says, bloody chicken is poisonous. This is the second time I ate at Toast Box and in both times, the chicken was so bloody.
After lunch, I started shopping. First stop was Beabi where I bought these:
The Sakura thermos on the far right is from Starbucks where I had a snack while waiting for the church service to start. There were a lot of pretty Sakura tumblers too:
Starbucks was my last stop for the night. I took a photo of these because I know Kitten loves Sakuras.
After Beabi, I also went to Watsons to get some toiletries. It’s so much fun to shop when you’re paying in points! I was able to buy a lot using my BDO rewards points. Now I know what my friend Ahne feels.
For the past few days, I’ve been going back and forth to Beauty Bar because I wanted to buy these hair accessories:
The thing is, they’re too expensive. The big one costs Php150 while the small one costs Php95 but I couldn’t find them anywhere else so I bought them. When I got home, I tried them on and I’m glad I purchased them.
At Beauty by SM, I got this Neutrogena Facial Sunblock. I feel like the Clinique Sunblock is giving me a white cast so I’m going to try this. This costs around 600+ pesos. I was shocked when I heard the price from the SA but Neutrogena is one of those few brands that work for my skin well so I went ahead and bought it. And finally, I bought the infamous in2it brow kit. My Fanny Serrano kit has hit pan. Well, the shade that I’m using anyway. I also needed a small brow kit for my trip so this is perfect.
I had fun in spite of being alone. When I was younger, I was scared to eat alone, go out alone, shop alone. I guess confidence also comes with age. Hey Kitten, don’t feel bad okay? We have a lot more days to spend together. We’ll go out some time. I still owe you your presents.
How about you ladies, have you spent some alone time lately?
