My First Time in Makati

by - Wednesday, August 19, 2015

It was not just my first time in Makati, but it was also my first time to go to a condominium. So since it was my first time in Makati, I really don't know where we are specifically in Makati. The only thing I know was, we got here using the PNR (Public National Railway) plus it was also my first time riding a PNR. It was really fun and thrilling experience! 


I remember this photo was when the PNR already arrived and I'm so excited to enter for the first time in my life! Although I am actually nervous at first, thinking "What if it was full at hindi na kami makasakay pa" [What if some of us (classmates) failed to hop in this train?] But you know what, since it was my first time, my classmate gave me a tip that the entrance for girls are in front of the train, while the rest are for boys and some girls. They also told us to put our backpacks in front of our chest us to avoid thiefs. 


We alighted on the 5th station from Sta. Mesa and went to the nearest store. We ended up inside the Cash & Carry near the condo and decided to eat in Jollibee. 

While eating, these two grannies beside me caught my attention. They were both eating alone. So, these thought came across to my mind, "Ang cute nila tignan oh. Sana nagkatabi nalang sila noh?"Total parehas naman silang nag-iisa. [Such a cute view. I hope they could seat next to each other since they are both eating alone.]


Then right after we ate, we went to the condo— The Linear Makati. As first timers, we are all nervous and worried that the guard might not allowed us to enter. But thank God, they let us in after logging to the book. When found ourselves amazed inside the elevator —to us first-timers.
