First Binondo trip for 2013 because Pangs arrived from the province this morning. I had no place in mind so when we saw Hap Chan on our way to Ongpin st, we gladly stopped by.
And of course, Pang’s favorite Chicken Feet. I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t eaten one for a long time but while munching on this a while ago, I was thinking, “this is the best chicken feet. EVER.”.
I wanted to try pancit and fried chicken from Sincerity Cafe in Yuchengco St. Unfortunately the place is closed on a Sunday. Maybe next time. Besides, I was already (and surprisingly) full from our Hap Chan meal.
This is my dream look for 3 sisters: tiled floor, printed menu, lots of lights and glass, small tables that are easy to clean, hidden kitchen, uniformed waiters and monobloc chairs. Except the primary colors would be red and white instead of yellow and violet. Someday, when I already have the money for renovation. hehe
We decided to head towards Lucky Chinatown Mall next. When we went here last year, many stalls were still closed and there weren’t too many people. We saw on a sign that Sincerity Cafe has a branch on the ground floor but this place is the high end mall in Sta. Cruz, the sosyal version of 168 and the like. Because I don’t want to buy a more-expensive-same-tasting-fried-chicken, I’ll just go to the store in Yuchengco st. next time.
On our way home, we unfortunately rode a jeep with a deaf and colorblind driver. That or he is out of his mind because Aegis’ Basang Basa sa Ulan remix version was playing full blast and the lights were alternating green red and blue. I was starting to have a headache so I just closed my eyes but my body could still feel the vibration from the speakers to the tune of “Eto ako ngayon, nag-iisa/Naglalakbay sa, gitna ng dilim“. I don’t know which was worse, the actual situation or the fact that I could sing along because hey, I actually know all the lyrics?!
When we were stuck in traffic along PGH, Pangs and I left the jeepney even if it meant walking a few meters more because we couldn’t take it anymore. While walking away from the vehicle, we could still hear the next song on the playlist which was “Halik“. We both laughed some more and thought of our fellow passengers still trapped. Never mind the stares of passersby. HAHAHA
