Today, just for fun, I decided that I wanted to to go to Quiapo. I've only been to Quiapo once but that was such a long time ago--I can't even remember it clearly.
I went there again today as a person with a mission: to hunt down those Cyclops shades I've been wanting ever since.
Thank goodness it wasn't Friday (read: Quiapo day) so the place was relatively empty.
After walking around for a while, I finally found the shades I was looking for! I felt a sudden jolt of joy.
Being the self-confessed eyewear addict that I am, I got all colors except brown because I'm not a brown person. The extra pair is for my friend Mike Magallanes.
I walked around some more and bought these toys for a little DIY experiment. I'm going back to get more Rubik's Cubes.
There's a building there at Quiapo that I will now dub as "Shades Heaven". Too bad the guard stopped me from taking pictures. Even in Quiapo, I get reprimanded. I'll try to sneak in a photo next time. I got these really cute oversized glasses. Perfect addition to my collection. I'm going back for the other colors. *tee-hee*
After buying all the items, I went back to the LRT Station and went to school with a smile on my face.
I am now adding Quiapo as an addition to my Shopping Meccas. I so love it there!! I know, it's a late discovery, but better late than never! There's really a lot of treasure that you can find. I didn't have enough cash with me today so I wasn't able to get the other things that I liked. I am so going back next time.
