Sooo... Before getting ready to go to the Smart Netphone Launch at Republiq tonight, I helped Henry pack his things for Ireland since he was leaving tonight. And since I'm going to Ireland in 4 days myself, I decided to start packing some of my things, too - including my diplomatic and American passports (my only IDs at the moment).
When we finally got to Republiq, it hit me: I don't have an ID with me! Ava tried to assure me that they're not that strict if it's a private event, so when Vern gave me my ticket, I practically skipped to the entrance when *dun dun dunnn* the lady wouldn't let me in. She. Would not. Let me in. Apparently, I look 16. Really?!?? FAIL. Fail, Angel, fail!!! :(
My ticket gone to waste... :(
(I still want a Smart Netphone, though.)
Anyway, instead of forcing the issue like the old me would have, I decided to just let it go, see Henry off and head home to get the house ready for the renovations tomorrow. I figured that is what God wants me to do. See, back in the day, whenever I forced something that clearly wasn't supposed to happen, drastic results would come about. Case in point: the last time I got a tattoo. But I'll save that story for another time.
The good news is that I got to see Ava while I was waiting for Vern outside Republiq and I also got to meet Earth, Tatie and Vern for the first time. Don't have pictures with Tatie and Vern, though. Next time! ...When I'm not too busy being such a failure. Lol.
Earth, Ava and Me
(Outfit post will come up soon.)
The worst part is that I got an a-hole of a taxi driver on the way home who stopped in the middle of the skyway and told me to get out unless I agreed to pay him Php500 upfront. True story. I was alone in the cab, mind you, so I forked up the money. Totally calling the complaint hotline tomorrow, though. No worries.
The whole night has just been a major fail. *sigh* Can't wait to go to Ireland in 4 days now. Will have to live vicariously through your blogs about the event, bloggers. Don't make it sound too good, please! x
