Yes, I was ... to the highest level !  So while the original driver of the car (hubby) was out on his regular weekend biking spree, I made a date with SIL and asked son to drive us to Ortigas.   SIL’s daughter and her own family are staying in a condo unit in one high rise building in that Pasig Business Center. They got a swimming pool on the roof deck which is the 39th floor and that was my target.  ‘Twas quite a long time since I last took a dip in a pool.  Finding a space to park in the area was tough so we decided to bring the car to the nearby Robinsons Galleria’s basement.  After which, we looked for some foodstuff.  It was already lunchtime and didn’t want to bother the couple for our meal.  We picked roasted chicken, grilled boneless bangus and green salad along with big sodas and packs of chips.  Glad that everyone enjoyed the simple lunch then no time was wasted and we headed to the roof top.  The pool was all ours except for one or two.  They didn’t stay long anyway so the place was enjoyed well.   Heavy rainfall and cold breeze didn’t stop me from enjoying the dip.  It even added more fun!  I wish I own the roof deck.  It mav only be a small one, but I love the pool.

I'm bored no longer. I hope you guys never were. Have a wonderful week!

Hi J! Ang bilis ng turn over ng season. Autumn na nga pala dyan and soon, nasa freezer area na naman kayo! Medyo malamig na rin dito, join forces kasi ang hangin ng pasko at hangin ng bagyo! hehe..

Glad that somehow e, me familiarity pa rin ang place na ito sa 'yo. Salamat sa Meralco Bldg. Lol!

Salamat sa oras mo J! See yah again!

This was my home court for several years before I went overseas, Ortigas... I used to eat everyday at lunch sa Galleria Food Court and worked in two buildings there one in Equitable-PCI Tower and another in Galleria Corporate Centre. Miss those days.

Beng Gee said...

@angsarap: Uy, talaga? Ortigas boy ka pala Raymund?! So, this must have brought you many good memories of the past. hehe.. I wonder if you were still here during the 2nd EDSA Revolution. Bakit di kita nakita? Lol!

Thanks for dropping by. Ingat!

Wala yan sa pool namin sa Pampanga....nakapaligid sa infinity pool pa! Aguy! At ang tubig? Alang kaparis...kapeng may gatas.

Buti yan may natatakbuhan ka pag ikaw ay bored na masyado.

Enjoy the weekend Ate Beng! Hopefully it won't be boring this time...but then again....maybe you can come up with something again to turn it into an exciting one...'kaw pa!

I actually enjoy swimming while it's raining.

Cheryl said...

What a neat place to have a swimming pool! On top of the world!

Beng Gee said...

Hi Huling! Parang natuyo na yata yung infinity pool ninyo sa Pampanga. hehe.. I hope may naisalba pang mga gamit ang mga brothers mo. Really sad to go through that kind of ordeal pero sana they can cope well.There's always a rainbow after the storm ika nga, kaya hopefully, they can recover sooner than expected.

Been always out of the house lately dahil pabalik-balik sa doctor.Kainis kasi yung secretary! Maybe I'll blog about it later. Kaya pasensya na sa sobrang late na response. Heto, inabot na ako ng TGIF. Happy weekend na lng sa 'yo!

Beng Gee said...

Yes J, weekend na ulit! But the weekend you are referring to is already a week over. Pasensya sa late response! Kakatapos lang ng storm dito sa MM with signal#1. The sun finally showed up the whole day today and hopefully rest muna kami sa mga typhoons and floods.

Have a great weekend too, J!

Beng Gee said...

Hi Cheryl! Yeah, sort of swimming in the sky. Lol!.. That's how precious every inch of space is in this side of the Metro Manila.

Thanks for the visit and have a nice day!

Beng Gee said...

Dhemz, can't see how you could ever get bored in your place. Dami nyong napapsyalan. How I love seeing your nature trippings!

Ganyan na talaga dito. Pataas ang expansion. hehe..

Thanks too, for your time Dhemz, kahit very busy ka! Be well and take care!
