One night, Mom and Willy decided to invite me to a night out. They decided to eat at Chef Lau’s at Ayala Triangle for dinner. Mom had vouchers as usual, and we helped ourselves to a gratuitous amount of Filipino food.
After dinner, they planned on heading to Hard Rock Cafe to listen to some music so we walked towards Glorietta. Somewhere just outside of Ayala Triangle, we started to wonder how in the world we were going to cross Ayala Avenue. We debated for a bit whether we were to keep walking or to get a taxi (It’s just five to ten minutes, guys; it’s such a waste of money!). The short dispute was settled by a taxi stopping right in front of us. We hopped on, and easily made our way to Hard Rock—not without Willy commenting how near it is right after.
I told you so. We made our way up, ordered some drinks—I got a latte, Willy got something with alcohol, and Mom got her usual warm calamansi juice.
White sugar, brown sugar— I chose neither.
It’s wonderful seeing Mom enjoy herself so much. She rarely goes out when Willy’s not here.
The lights changed so quickly, so I made it a sport to capture different colored shots hahaha!
Anyway, further into the night, Willy got a bit more drunk, and Mom was a bit more loose. I don’t usually drink; I’ve only drunk alcohol when I go out with Mom and WIlly, and some very few special occasions. Mom usually frowns when I do try to push my boundaries, so I was very surprised when Mom asks me what I would like to drink
and then she says I drink a lot.
After much debate in which Mom tried to monitor the amount of alcohol I would imbibe (we practically went over the entire menu five times, and my final list of possible drinks ten times; she also kept asking the waitress how strong the drinks were), we decided on this baby, the Blue Devil. Honestly, I just wanted it for the color.
I mean, look at that! How can you resist that gorgeous color?!
Anyway, we stayed for one and a half sets, and then called it a night (cue breath of relief as I had papers to check, and practicum the next day at 7 am).
I’ll post a video on my outfit some other day since I’ve been procrastinating and this is the third time in around two weeks that I’ve worked on this post. Okaythanksforreading! :D
