After the game
01.25.2010 30 °C
My girlfriend pick me up from the gym at 8pm. We drove to a restaurand, stuffed ourselves with some nice grilled meat and a seafood soup. It was raining then so the hot seafood soup was perfect for appitizer. We weren't able to finish our food so we asked the waitress to pack it and take it with us as we go. I felt a little tired, my legs were shaking, I could slowly feel the effect of the 3 game practice to my legs. I wanted to go home and sleep because my new shift schedule will start the next day at 12nn. But my girl wants to spend longer time with me. It was almost 9pm, malls were almost closed and it was raining. It would be nice to hang out at a bar and drink beer but it felt like its an old routing that we always do on a saturday. So we decided to go to a 5star hotel to chill. We drove to mactan island and the 1st hotel we saw was indeed a 5star hotel, the Shangrila Mactan Hotel. The rain stoppped by the time we got to the hotel. We parked our car at the 1st parking site near the garden and proceeded to the hotel lobby. The lobby was so huge and there were shops, activity desks, comfortable couches, big paintings, and a dim lighter chandelier. There were guests enjoying a live band at the center of the lobby where there is a bar. We convene ourselves at a table for two that overlooks the garden and the pool. It was romantic, and the music just suits our mood. I ordered beer, and a mango shake for my girlfriend. She was enjoying the view and the live music. I was staring at my laptop checking on my email and browsing at some websites while drinking my beer. I puffed some cigarette after we finished our drinks. We strolled at the pool and took pictures of the nice dim lights on the garden as well as the low lighted path going to the beach. We were having a good time, but I suddenly felt very tired. We decided to take off, so we paid our bills and head back to the car. We were still halfway to her place but my eyes could no longer take it, I was very tired and sleepy that I could barely drive so we decided to stop at the nearest hotel we could find. I guess that's where I end up dozing off and never even remembered how I got there. But somehow, I still managed to recall all these thing that happened. From a 5star hotel tour to a cheap drive through motel, that's how it ended up. Anyhow, we had a great time though. It's a good preparation to start my new shift schedule.
