It was Loraine‘s birthday yesterday, and the amigas and I decided to celebrate it in the Trinoma.
Since it was only my second time there and I got there early, I decided to walk the whole mall. Yes, I walked all four floors for an hour just to see what shops they’ve got now. See, my first Trinoma experience was sort of traumatic, and that was partly why I haven’t stepped foot in that place for a while. (That, and I haven’t actually had time to go malling, anyway.)
Well, guess what: I like Trinoma now.But I think it’s really more convenient for me to go to SM, and I have the stores there pegged, so I prefer that over the newer mall, for now.
The only store I actually entered to look around was (of course) National Bookstore and Fully Booked. I was looking for several Meg Cabot books… Unfortunately the ones available were the Princess Diaries series. -sigh- Sucks. I’ve wanted to get my hands on the Mediator books for ages. Ah, well. The search continues.
When I got back to the first floor, I got me a haircut at David’s Salon, too. (I should’ve stopped to get a Frapp at Starbucks before then. Hmf.)
And then my friends arrived, and we had dinner at Heaven n Eggs. I had Twinings Mint Tea and Lemon juice, and Egg Sardou. It’s Jerusalem artichokes and shrimp in hollandaise, topped with a poached egg and served on a muffin, with mashed potatoes on the side. Yum.
Loraine got the fried chicken, though I think it’s mostly because of the fries.
We also tried Crab Omellete.
Heaven ‘n Eggs has delicious food. The price isn’t…err.. student-friendly, but I think it’s worth it. Beware, though: the service takes a while. But the crew is very polite and courteous and smiling, so I guess that makes up for it.
After eating, we had so much fun chatting (we haven’t seen each other in almost 3 months!) that we didn’t notice that it was 10:30pm already. And I was supposed to be at work at 9.
So I went back to Trinoma, and, it went pretty well. Sure, my past frustrations about the place have not been forgotten, but, taking that into account, I gotta say that Trinoma picked its feet up.
And I guess it’s safe to say that I’ll be coming back.
