Last week, Kirk, FM and I went to Divisoria to get some stuff that my Dad asked me to buy as well as clothes for B. Since we were only going to Divisoria, we dressed down and ended up all sweaty due to the heat. Lunch time came and we found ourselves trooping to Lucky Chinatown Mall. Boy were we in for a surprise.
You see, Lucky Chinatown Mall was literally less than 20 steps away from where we used to live. It was so near our old place that we felt bitter that it wasn't built when we were still there. It was fancy and so out of place. I felt like we were at a smaller version of Greenbelt.
After appreciating and bashing the place coz of our bitterness, we started looking for a place to eat and ended up at King Chef. We hesitated to be honest since we were carrying pails, lots of plastic, umbrellas, and the like. We looked out of place. However, I said that we shouldn't feel bad or inferior because we can afford to pay for our food and at the end of the day, that's what mattered.
We ordered Fookien Rice, Hot Shrimp Salad, and Seasonal Vegetables with Beef. All of them were good. No, scratch that, all of them were really good. In fact, I would like to go back there and try the other food that they have.
I am grateful for moments like this where FM and I get to spend time with my sibling. I know that it helps them get to know each other better and at the same time, ensure that our bond stays strong.
