Yesterday, was a kind of diverse for me. Rather than my usual routine of being a mega-multi-tasked mom and wife, I did not do my usual routine: Hubby and I went out! Yes, to the metropolis: the big polluted and noisy city. We left the tres marias of ours to the care of grandparents.

I was thrilled to really look forward to an adventurous day. It was truly different because instead of bringing our car, we took the public bus, metro-rail, and taxi. It was really an experience! Whew! The experienced knocked me out of my comfort zone. Instead of the usual comfort of a private vehicle and driver, we had it another way. I was thinking if I had to do that every day, I don’t think I will last for a week.

I toured the mall alone first. Hubby had a business meeting in the early part of the morning. I loved the feeling of being able to just be on my own and buy a few items. I picked up items mostly for the tres marias. As I lined up to pay my items, I noticed that most people are using credit cards. Although I paid mine in cash, I think paying with credit cards is a convenient way, too.

Of course, the best part of the day was trying out new foods out of the usual. There were a few items on sale (post Valentine’s promo) and I was glad I was able to get a few.

It was an experience out of my usual routine. It’s good to “move my cheese” every now and then, and let the unpredictable happen. Who can predict life , anyway?

    There is a certain happy feeling of freedom being alone and doing things that are all about you.

    I am glad you had a lovely time.
