I passed by the mall while on my way to lunch, thinking on what will I fill my gastric tank with while fighting its near-depravation state. Although I pass by the same mall almost every single day, there was something in it that I could not put into words. Beautiful, homey, and invigorating. But it wasn't that all. There was this deafening silence that hovers the entire landscape, probably an aftermath of a long week-end where only a handful of people strut their way around to malls.
As I look around from Myron's Place to Felix to Chateau 1771 and beyond, I was already drifted ashore at the Greenbelt 3. So I just said to myself, why can't I just grab some comfort food at the National Sports Grill-- a sporty place to boot, big chairs and tables, big television screens, and with all American foods which are usually the kind that I munch while minding exhilarating sports matches-- foods like fries, burgers, fish and chips, ribs, and the usual meats and pasta.
While on my way up, I passed by a yet another sports sanctuary, the Adidas Concept Store. Nothing really new to wedge your eyes on a tethering frenzy, except for the fact that there were only few people around, and thus, such a comfortable way to shop.
On what was meant to savor my dear lunch ended up with having to shop and grab my very first sub-5grand shoes. Yes, you heard it right. Mainstream-priced male shoes nowadays cost Php6-7k, and I got mine less than 5grand? Whew!!! Steal-deal.
The cost of getting a good bargain? I have to stay around for a couple of hours to fit almost all the displayed models. Oh yes, that is how I shop. I fit them all, and decide which one goes well for me. The "fit all, buy one" dictum really suits well with my retail philosophy.
Because of my long-overdue stay at the Adidas Concept Store, my time runs out. I rushed back to the office after, empty stomach but not empty handed. But I was still able to pass by 7-11 to grab hotdog, instead.
Now, this is another welcoming addition to my gym shoes then.
