I went on a joyride last Sunday. I did not have anything to do so I went to Glorietta 5 to ride the P2P (Point to Point) bus.
The bus was really huge!
You have to climb up a few steps to get to the top.
The seats were spacious!
You even get your own monitor. You have an option to watch a movie, read an ebook, etc. There was even a legrest.
I sat on the very first row.
It left the bus station at 12 noon to go to the next destination (SM Megamall bus stop) even if there were only 2 passengers.
The bus arrived in Trinoma at 12:40! To think we had to wait for 10 minutes in Megamall!
I thought to myself, Whew! That was fast! Then, it suddenly dawned on me there was a Pacquiao fight. The streets of Manila are usually deserted whenever there is a boxing match.
When I got to Trinoma, I went to Landmark supermarket. What did I see in the food court area?!?!?! My favorite Lotsa Pizza Ham and Cheese!
My friends tease me all the time that I am so "jeje" (meaning pedestrian? for lack of a better word) when it comes to food. They call this kind of pizza, PICHA PIE!
I am very happy whenever I get the chance to eat one of my favorite pizzas. It reminds me of the 3M pizza we used to buy on E. Rodriquez. I remember the house was white and there was a pizza kiosk outside their gate.
SM North The Block was just across Trinoma. There is a footbridge that connects the 2 malls. I ate my 2nd snack at King Chef Dimsum Kitchen.
I wanted to order the Sesame Prawn Roll because I wanted to know what was inside the roll. I was able to buy the rice paper in Binondo last week. According to the waiter, that dimsum was only available in the Banawa and Lucky Chinatown mall branches.
I had Chicken Feet
and Taro Puff instead. I did not want to overeat because I still have a dinner date with FGM.
I really enjoyed riding the bus but my eyes were closed most of the time!!! I get dizzy when I am in a fast moving vehicle. I recalled that when I was in a cruise ship, the higher the deck, the more you could feel the swaying of the ship. Remember, the bus was almost like a double decker and running quite fast because there was no traffic.
Would I ride again? Yes!!!!
But perhaps during weekends only because the fare is 25.00 (promo price).
I wish most of the buses in Metro Manila are like P2P buses.
