AMIS RESTAURANT - Old Finds When in Quiapo, Manila
December 18, 2010 - 2:15 P.M.
Okay, I jst got home from Quiapo with my mom and aunt. Gosh, define a LOT of people? You have to move like a penguin and sometimes even if you don't move, you'll move unwillingly (wtf? haha). Upon arriving at the entrannce to the Nazarene's shrine at the back, I was like WOW, okay there's a line. Luckyly the weather was cloudy and the sun isn't like a spotlight! so it wasn't irritating to falll in line. It has been a custom for me and my mom to go to Quiapo chruch to pray and give thanks every after term of my school. I always have that strange uplifting, calming, relaxing mood whenever I do this. I thank God for guiding and inspiring me always.
After doing the "ritual", we then went on to Amis Restaurant to eat lunch. I was kind of hesitant at first since I haven't eaten then for like 10 years or more and I am always used to eating at fast-food chains and fancy restaurants. However, I went on and agreed since I wanted to know how the food is after all these years. To my surprisse, the placce is still as is, though it isn't as fanccy and class as most of the restaurants I have dinned in already iit still hasn't lost iits touch. The food was delicious, simple in taste but reallly satisfying. The place still has a high priority for cleanliness; from the table yousit down, employees, food service, and to leaving the place.
It was nostalgic for me to come back there since during my childhood, my mom and dad would alyways bring me there after attending mass at Quiapo. It was a good feeling really. Anyone who's been down the streets of Quiapo knows this place and it has been there for years. My grandmother's ate there when they were still kids and even their paraents I think?
I'm still sleepy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! O_O
Later will be the results of my grades for this term. I hope I did well enough to attain a scholarship again. :) (crossfingers!)
