After 6 days.. hindi ko pa rin malilimutan yung nangyari sa amin that Saturday…
Rushers’ EB nun. Excited kaming lahat na pumunta, looking forward to meet the newbies (and oldies) na first time na mag-e-EB. Though the night before that day, hindi na maganda yung weather. Stephen even texted me na magraindance na nga ako para huminto ulan bukas. But I thought, and I hoped, na bukas medyo gaganda rin yung panahon.
When I woke up, patuloy pa rin sa pagulan.. though mahina na sya. Nagising pa ako in time, since ayaw akong gisingin ng mom ko kasi nga gagala lang daw ako.. mag-effort daw akong gumising ng maaga mag-isa. So ayun nga. Nag-almusal ako while listening to RX.. and yes, habang kumakain ng breakfast, I tried the raindance, hoping magkakaepek yun. 😛
Humina naman yung ulan when I left the house. I arrived at McDo strata and andun na sina Astroboy, Treiz, Doraemon, Elen.p, and Mr Perk were already there. Sunod-sunod na nagsidatingan yung iba. Sobrang lakas na ng ulan nung sumugod na kami sa RX Booth.
So ayun, tuloy pa rin ang EB. It was actually a fun morning with the rushers. Maraming nagpakabibo. And puro tawanan. Finally met Lucio (of the Antagonizers) and Elisha (of CX). Tapos may Yoga session with Delamar, Dance number from Mr. Perk, Harutan with Caramello, at marami pang iba. But in the middle of it all, nandun yung pag-aalala namin. The rain/storm outside is getting stronger, napostpone pa yung RX Stick-On, and bumaha na rin sa labas.
We stayed there until 1pm, and decided to leave para makapaglunch sa SM Mega. The rushers went there by batch. Me, Mr. Perk, Doraemon, and Bullet took a cab. Tapos the usual lunch, sa foodcourt. We waited for the other rushers to arrive. The lower ground floor of SM Mega was a little flooded.. wala masyadong tao. So ayun, naglunch na kami, more kwentuhan, more kulitan, and picture picture.
After ng lunch, some of the rushers decided to watch a movie, some of them decided to go home, kahit sobrang lakas pa rin ng ulan. Me, Purplerose, Doxie, Doraemon, Bullet, Stephensoul, Mr. Perk, Dru, and Caramello went to Starbucks para hintayin ang ibang rushers.
Around 6pm, nagkita-kita ulit kami. We decided na maghiwahiwalay na. Astroboy, Czarovic, Mojacko, Elen.p, and Eneri decided to go north. Doxie‘s dad and Trina‘s parents arrived to fetch them. So ang naiwan sa SM ay kami: me, purplerose and her hubby, Stephensoul, Mr. Perk, Benjai, Gab, Caramello, Merski, Baditz, and Bullet.
We went to JMT Bldng, sa office ni Mr. Perk, searching for decent place na pwedeng tuluyan. When we already got the needed info, we went to McDo El Pueblo to eat dinner. Then nalaman namin na sobrang worried sina Chico and Delle sa mga rushers. We were very touched sa pag-aalala nila. My family also called me up to check my status, and I just informed them that I’m safe there.
So tulad nga ng napag-usapan.. 10 of us (since Baditz decided to go home), went to this part of Pasig where lots of motel were located. YUP. We decided na it’s better to check-in in a motel (since fully booked na rin ang mga hotel sa Ortigas). Medyo nahirapan din kami sa paghahanap but eventually, nakakita din kami. Mariposa. whatta name!!
So yeah, that was my first time to enter a motel. Cool naman. Very clean and decent naman yung dating nya. Too bad we cant stay in one room so we divided ourselves into 5 groups. So I shared the room with Gab, para safe daw hehe. Buti naman at walang nangyari haha. We just watched I Am Legend sa HBO, and lots of music video sa MTV, hanggang sa makatulog na kami. We stayed there until 4am.
We went back to Ortigas Centre and ate breakfast at 7-11, with matching oldies music since Sunday na nun. Nagdispersed na kami after that, and sumabay na sa car ni Gab with purplerose & her hubby, Caramello, and merski.
Nakauwi ako ng house around 7pm. Medyo maputik yung labas, though everything looks normal. Nadatnan ko nalang yung mga peeps sa bahay na naglilimas na ng tubig sa loob ng house. Konting sermon lang then okay na. Brownout pa that time, pero around lunch time bumalik na yung electricity sa place namin.
It was really a memorable day, never thought that would happen to me. Though it was really a streesful day for everyone. Still thankful to God that nothing happened bad to all the rushers na kasama ko that time, and to my family din. I just hope na makarecover na ang lahat. 🙂
