One of my favorite pitstops
I love their fruit juice here. I know they’re probably just sugar and flavoring (if not always the case) but I still love it. I get a big gulp frequently after work to cool down before going home.
The smallest 7/11 I’ve ever seen
I swear this store is so small I could probably take about fifteen steps from the door to the wall at the other end. It could probably fit about six people at a time but the location is nice. It’s beside a call center so it always have customers plus it sells rice. Everybody likes rice.
Getting back is a more relaxed affair. There’s very little traffic at midnight so I get back home in about an hour. I take the same route back but I have to add a 15-minute walk because I have to detour. The area I pass during the day closes its gates at 9 pm.
My guilty pleasure
That, my friend, is called a ‘Walis-tambo’ every Filipino child has experienced getting whacked by one of these at least once. Walis-tambo’ is a soft broom, usually made of the phragmites grass. It is designed for indoor use and it’s very effective. I generally do a sweep before sleeping because I’m not a big fan of dust and dirt. Yes, I have two trashcans. One biodegradable and one for not. Doing my part even for a little bit.
The streetlight directly across my window
That light shines directly at the window but I’ve gotten used to it so I’m not really concerned. I don’t normally have a curtain because it just makes the room hotter in the day so there are some people out there that have seen me buck naked when changing. My bedroom is on the second floor of the house so I’m not flashing people (That would be hilarious though)
