In solitude

Today, I spent the day in solitude.

Did some site visit in the morning and opted to spend the rest of the day malling all by myself. I cannot imagine taking a meal in public all by myself. As I ordered my fave Beef Bulgogi by "Kimchi" for lunch, I sat in one of the many tables in the foodcourt. Later, a girl approached me, "can I share the table with you?" gladly, I said yes.

I seemed to be in impulsive shopping spree at the Mall of Asia for six hours. Am I depressed? I can just laugh off the only reason I can think of at the moment, "how could he..." My usual mindset of "I'll think about it, I'll come back later" just won't work in this humongous place. I even got a SMS from a friend that said, "I'm so proud of you! This is so unusual." (Thanks to SMS, they kept me company.) I probably forgot what my mom always say to ask myself when I shop, "Do you need it? Do you want it?" What's my point here? Nothing really. Shopping in solitude is harmful to my pocket. hahaha I just ought to reward myself, anyway the stock market is up 50 points today. wow!

At the end of the day, I wished I could have stayed longer to lounge and see the sunset along Manila Bay; I arrived at the airport 40 minutes too early.
