Bee arrived from Cebu a little past eight this morning. Met her at the NAIA airport. I wasn't sure at first if we're going to rent a car, take a taxi, if Bee will drive her own car, if Bee will drive a rented car, or one of their family drivers will pick us up. Turns out a family driver did pick us up. We first passed through the PAL cargo to pick up Bee's diving gear, then we headed to Calamba.
Bee got a job as a chef in a Tagaytay hotel, and she needed to find a reasonably priced apartment. We looked in the Calamba area because although it is a bit far from Tagaytay, the rent is cheaper compared to rates in Tagaytay or nearby Sta. Rosa.
Of the three places Bee got from the internet, one was still in construction, and another was way too far from any main road. The last one was decent and we couldn't find it at first because we didn't realize it was on the other side of the highway. Ha ha ha.
Amazingly, all that happened in the morning. We had lunch at Cafe France in the Shell station at Binan before Bee dropped me off at Festival mall on their way back to their house in Bulacan.
I planned to watch a movie but ended up window shopping at gadget stores and looking for a gift for the office "kris kringle". Near the mall exit where the terminal for vans going to Pacita are parked, I discovered that Bon Chon had an outlet. Decided to buy a box of soy chicken for dinner.
By the way, December 2 is the first Sunday of Advent.
