Trip to Marikina City

Marikina City is tagged as the Shoe Capital of the Philippines. I remember passing by the place way back when I was in high school since it is a part of our itinerary during our field trip and the “biggest shoe in the world” was all over the papers during that time.

Last week, Kuya Jay invited us to his hometown. I met up with Kuya Drew, Ate Aileen and Miguel at Gateway. Our trip on our way to Marikina was full of laughter and hELLuR pOwhz. We went to Pan de Amerikana and met up with Kuya Jay. The food is cheap and the place is really nice. There’s this life-size chess board and hanging bridge. It was my first time to finally talk to Kuya Migs. Later on, Kuya Marc and Ate Gail arrived.

After eating our merienda, we went straight to Marikina Hotel. Now I can say that robots are slowly invading the place! Ate Gail pointed the Marikina fox. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture of that rare animal.

 

Robots in Marikina :D

We saw this pink MMDA van with Mr. and Mrs. Bayani Fernando’s picture on it. We can’t help but take some fanboy/fangirl pictures:

We went to Cordillera Coffee and I ordered my usual drink. We waited for Winston, who came from the airport after claiming some medical scrubs and fresh blue marlin brought by a friend who arrived from Davao City.

The gang originally planned to eat in a Thai restaurant. Unfortunately, we were stucked in the traffic for an hour. We played Lady Gaga’s Poker Face a number of times and Kuya Drew shared some of his emo ringtones LOL.

All of a sudden, they decided to go to Padi’s Point Antipolo for dinner. We were amazed with the view – basta ang ganda hehehe 🙂

We left the place at around 11PM. Kuya Drew, Winston and I still managed to go to Boni High to drink and gossip at Starbucks.
