Called (633 8888) to reserve for dinner tonight. I’ll be testing out my pressure sore -pray I survive.
Was pleased when the man who answered said, “May I help you?” with his voice not going down at “you” – the phenomenon of which makes me always feel the one who inflects downward at that point is tired or sick and tired, annoyed at the call.
Was connected to Heat. I asked if they had anything different than usual tonight. My call was passed on to someone. In the course of waiting, my throat became scratchy. Inevitably, I coughed. Okay, coughing fit. Mini coughing fit. The lady on the other end sounded concerned as she asked, “Okay lang kayo ma’am?” I apologized. She said it was all right, many people are coughing these days. I appreciated the empathy.
Nice to know the hotel personnel in ESH are warm and not indifferent.
Happy New Year. See you tonight!
Pictures of EDSA Shangrila Hotel – look ma, the big tree is no more. But these remain:
Saw this on the way home. I couldn’t take a full view of it but you get the drift. I like that the tree has colors.
Celebrity sightings by son in HEAT(my back was turned to them):
And we all saw:
A closer look at the tree and stars:
I forgot to mention – in the bakeshop that was adorned Gingerbread House style were Christmas decor – ceramic doll like figures and houses being sold at P2k plus. I was so tempted to buy because they reminded me of Lola’s collection. Except that I felt like Scrooge last night plus the fact that Christmas is over. They were also selling a creche at almost P4k. I really wanted those porcelain/ceramic thingies. So yesterday, so reminiscent of my childhood with mama still around. 😦
