Yesterday I was so very excited because it's my college classmate's daughter's first birthday. The venue was in Jolibee Phoenix near Mall of Asia (MOA) 4:00pm-6:00pm. So from Quezon City we travelled to MOA. I think it's about 3 hours ride because of the traffic (traffic, of course) and we prefer to commute.
We took a bus to MOA from Q.C. Memorial Circle to Timog Edsa Highway where it took 1 hour, so I told to my friend that if until Cubao its still very traffic, we will have to take MRT nalang para makahabol pa tayo, because I was woried na baka from Cubao-Ortigas another 1 hour na naman. Good thing my toddler was sleeping. So to make this story short we took MRT from Santolan to Taft. Of course what did you expect at MRT? standing position (karga-karga si zd, kasi ayaw nyang tumayo kasi natatakot sya sa maraming tao at feeling nya kinukulong sya kasi ang liit lang ng space at first time nyang sumakay sa MRT).
We arrived at Jolibee Phoenix around 3:45 pm thank God we're not late. Then the Jolibee crew told me that the party was on the 2nd floor, but to my surprise,when we got there, The tarpaulin never said it's Megan's birthday! So I asked again if there is another birthday party there? Then the crew answered me and told me "no ma'am, ito lang po from 3pm to 5pm", then I asked again, "are you sure? how about 4 to 6pm?". My friend told me that the party would start at 4pm-6pm. Then they checked again but there's no other party booked. Oh no! I was thinking if the party was cancelled without informing me, then I call my classmate and she told me, "NO Mel, the birthday is on November 14, NOT October 14".
Oh my... I'm like a praning that time. hahahah! I blame myself because I did not check her pm again before I left home, neither text her, because to myself, I knew that today was the party! LOL!! But anyway it's okay, I told to my friend that it's okay "kasama talaga sa paglaki to" hahahah! Diretso nalang tayo sa MOA, nagugutom ako at napagod kakain tayo then pasyal konti at uwi na din kasi baka siksikan na naman sa MRT.
Because I was so hungry and tired, when I saw the Mang Inasal di na ako naghanap ng iba but on my mind I wanted Burger King, pero hahanapin pa namin kung saang sulok yan sa MOA. That's why we decided na Mang Inasal nalang.

After eating we went to the Bay side. ZD boy had so much fun, he enjoyed seeing the sea and the sea birds there. After that we go home na.

What have I learned from this experience?
After this, I told to myself that "Last na talaga to Melisa" hahahaha! Before I go to somewhere, day before, check the schedule the month, date, time, and location, don't hesitate to verify or call or text, read the information again and again. Life sometimes is like this, sometimes we fail but after that We learned a lot of lessons for us to improve, or to overcome something. Wag lang natin ulit-ulitin hehe! Though tayong mga moms likas na natin ang pagiging makakalimutin it is a challenge for us specially for me :)
I also discovered from this trip for my zd boy that I needed to expose him more on many people, specially sa bus at sa MRT feeling nya kinokulong sya, every time na may bumababa gusto nya na din bumaba, at iyak sya ng iyak. The next time we ride MRT and bus again, hopefully he will able to overcome this, so that next time it's easy for us to travel.
Thank you guys for reading this kaloka experience.
Have a good day and God bless :)
