Was going through some photos of my Western Visayas trip when I saw these shots of that very unique Mcdonald's store along Lacson Avenue in Bacolod (yeah, yeah!). It is a veritable museum of almost all the toys they've released in the Philippines. Very nice place. And hey, do you know that the milkshake was first reintroduced here and not in Manila?

Anyway, these will be the last pics from that wonderful trip. Over and out.

... - - - ...

I am currently sick as I write this. I have nobody else to blame but myself. Suffice to say that I am sluggish as ever a day after I've had several episodes of vomiting from both ends of my alimentary canal (What the heck was that all about?! Ugh). My sides still hurt and it hurts to cough as well.

At any rate, I have practically subsisted on Gatorade the whole day yesterday. You know - replenish, replenish, replenish. It's equally difficult if MD friends simply tell me to take this for that, this for that (I like repeating myself today). Symptomatic relief is just never my thing. I was half expecting something like, "Come over and get yourself checked." or something to that effect. Grrr... I may have expected too much.

What a great way to start the year (the upside of this is that I get to lose weight which happens whenever i get sick, hah!). Happy New Year to all of us!

BTW, here's something I'm dying to see:

Please, Miramax. Bring THE QUEEN to this royalty-crazy country!
