Keeping in line with tradition, just like last year, I injured myself in the first week of my travels again. No, I wasn’t running in caves again but rather, I was attacked by a rotating fan! I made the stupid mistake of trying to move the fan by pushing it from the top rather than the base. And I did it while it was running…
End result was a nice gash on one of my fingers. Given all the profuse bleeding I thought maybe I’d need stitches which begs the question – where the hell do you get stitches in Angeles, Philippines at 4 in the morning?
Luckily after wrapping it up and keeping pressure on it for awhile the bleeding stopped so all I needed was a bandaid.
After having breakfast at Phillies yet again I headed to the mall one more time. This time I was determined to get shirts as I pretty much had no choice as I had run out of shirts to wear and needed to do laundry.
Anyway, I found these really thin, shear cotton/spandex blend shirts that I think will work perfectly for this trip. They were about $5 each so I was pretty happy with the price.
Other than that I took it really easy during the day. I caught up on my blogging and planned out what I would do next week.
Around midnight I headed out starting with a late dinner at Phillies where I had pork ribs with fries and baked beans. I initially was a little worried when she asked how I wanted my ribs cooked. I went with well done because, well, their ribs not a steak! The ribs ended up being great so I was pretty happy
And then it was bar hopping time.
A few bars later and a few rum and cokes later I ended up at the same bar I ended at last night – Insomnia.
And now, apparently I have a Filipino girlfriend. Strange things happen after midnight…
