Additionally for P150 every, however this one has a particular story.

Anyway, I purchased and received the primary set sooner than the second. Truly, joke, I wasn’t even planning to purchase True Grit. I used to be solely purchased by the vendor’s description beside the ebook, saying that it is an “out-of-stock version” kinda ebook and that it had gained awards and stuff. And I imply, come on, it was just for P150 and I used to be stunned nobody was taking it so I did. Greatest rattling impulse purchase ever.

I received them across the 2nd week of October and I used to be so excited bec it was my first time shopping for books on-line. I bear in mind going via some bother pa earlier than I even received them bec I informed our helper to obtain for the books however she wasn’t at house when the supply man confirmed up so I had him drop the supply within the Barangay Corridor pa. Fortunately, I used to be simply chilling in a close-by cafe and the Barangay Corridor was simply two homes away from us, so. Hindi gano’n ka-hassle, however, nonetheless, na-hassle pa rin. Oh, effectively, the books had been safely delivered and I used to be so joyful despite the fact that I received upset with how yellowed the pages True Grit turned out to be. Nonetheless, contemplating that the ebook was fairly previous, I did not mind–I ended up treasuring it much more.

So, the second set of books–American Gods and Middlesex–I purchased them for P300. Silly of me, although, I solely paid precisely P300 LMAO. I did not know shipping-exclusive pa pala sila. So, the vendor requested me whether or not I’d have them shipped na lang or I am going to “McDo Pasong Tamo.” I selected the latter as a result of I believed vendor was referring to the one in QC, which was close to lang naman, so why not.

It wasn’t. It turned out to be the one in Makati. And each of them HAVE McDonald’s on the nook of the streets. Think about my shock omfg. And I used to be coming from South Caloocan!!!

Anyway, being a Friday and my mother would not be house at evening bec she was in a two-day seminar–I went to Makati, anyway. I took the prepare and adopted the vendor’s directions on easy methods to get there since I wasn’t accustomed to the place. I solely had a handful of money, round P200, I feel, and a 50% battery on my previous telephone. And I needed to wait in McDo for five hours as a result of I used to be there too clearly early bec I believed vendor could be there na however… ayon. 5PM pa uncooked pala siya. So, ayon, naghintay ako. I solely purchased like 1 rooster sandwich simply so I would not get thrown off the fastfood chain. And, fortunately, I introduced with me my newly purchased ebook, True Grit. It was solely a few pages lengthy, so I figured it will make issues simpler if I needed to wait. To which I did, and I did make use quite a lot of my time studying it.

5 P.M. Vendor arrived and I received the books. Earlier than that, I used to be having a deep argument in my head which approach I might be heading house. I used to be imagined to be house kanina pa, and at 5PM, malala nang makauwi ako earlier than 7PM. I had 2 choices: I may go by prepare ulit, which might in all probability take me house round 7PM and I may get monetary savings pa, however it will imply (1) malalang siksikan, (2) mahabang pilahan, and (3) it regarded like the beginning of jeepney scarcity going again to Manila, and that is dangerous AF. Alternatively, I stored seeing nearly empty buses going from Makati to Monumento and that appears cozy AF, in comparison with the prospect of siksikang-malupit sa LRT, however that might imply I might in all probability be house round 9PM and I’d get quick on money. Eh, what the hell. It was a Friday, my mother would not be house, I needed to learn, and a snug journey on the bus is all the time an excellent funding. So, I did. I went for the bus. Rode the subsequent one (after making an attempt to determine easy methods to handle the streets of Makati) I noticed and went and sat on the farthest seat I may discover.


Earphones on, an excellent ebook, and a twilight sky in Makati whereas I rode the bus–my most favourite mode of transportation. I alternated between listening to music and daydreaming out the window and studying my ebook. I listened when the bus was shifting and I learn when the bus stopped moving–which was 97% of the time contemplating the route was alongside EDSA. True Grit, a ebook I impulsively purchased despite the fact that I knew nothing about it and solely based mostly my choice on the vendor’s caption saying that it was an out-of-print version and it gained awards, turned out to be an enormous engrossing page-turner. The EDSA visitors was 99.9% bearable (I overlooked the remaining .1% for the anxiousness I felt as a result of I used to be imagined to be house early). In truth, it made my complete day 12 months so a lot better. I take into consideration that day each time. Particularly now with the COVID-19-Quarantine combo hit, I could not assist however miss that day and the sliver of peaceable second I had with myself.

I received house someplace round 8PM. Surprisingly, the Friday visitors wasn’t all that unhealthy. I imply, it was a Friday, and it was within the night, so a heavy visitors jam ought to all the time be anticipated. It did come, however not as worse as I believed it will be. I received house, greeted my canine, modified from my uniform to pajamas, and went again to sleep alone within the bed room with a cool AC and I had a tremendous sleep.

Greatest day of my life ever.
