Spa Day With Ish

After scoring some "parols" from the HQ last Tuesday, Ish and I decided to do a little window shopping in Megamall where we ended up eating Red Mango and talking about the recent elections. 

Then we decided (well actually she did) to go and treat ourselves to a spa since campaign season was over and we needed to unwind. So okay, I obliged since Ish was paying (thank you!).

Going to a spa was out of my budget and God knows I spent all my money on food and healthy frozen yogurt. Plus I haven't received any checks from work this week so...I was on tipid mode.

Now since we were already having dinner in the heart of Katipunan, we then decided to go to My Cool Mint Spa which was only a few blocks away.

My oh my, the spa was oh-so relaxing and I have Ish to thank for it. Upon entering, we were greeted by a verrry relaxing and sleep-inducing minty scent. Mmmmm... (Of course I have no pictures of the spa to show you since I wasn't on blog duty, tsk tsk.)

Unfortunately though, I forgot to tell the masseuse though to ease up on the back massaging because I was getting quite sore, but still I wanted the masseuse to concentrate on my shoulders and nape. My shoulders and nape always get a lot of beating because I am always hunched over my laptop 70% of the time. Afterwards we had a footsie spa which was all the more relaxing. Ahh...this is the life.

So anyway, we finished quite late and the boyfriend, tired as he is from work, dozed off and "forgot" to pick me up. Now normally I would be pissed off but knowing how the boyfriend works so hard and since Ish was so nice and offered me to sleep over, I kinda got on with the program as it would be a choice of either taking a cab home at 12:00 MN or just spending one night at a very nice apartment. And obviously I chose the latter.

I must say, Ish's apartment is in one word COMFY and Lucifur (her cat) was so animated that I felt right at home. So, sleeping over wasn't really such a bad idea. Take note that I rarely sleep over because, well, I don't feel okay sleeping in other houses (apart from the boyfriend's of course), plus growing up my parents did not approve of me spending my nights elsewhere.

So there. That's how my Tuesday and Wednesday went. And oh before I forget, Lucifur, the resident hunter, discovered a baby bat which made Ish and I scream in surprise (we have never seen a baby bat up close ever!).....and then we felt quite sorry for the little blind baby bat.

First off, this is the serene little Lucifur:

And this is the kawawa baby bat:

See how small the poor little guy is?

Take note that this is an old (even ancient, if you will) P1 coin

We managed to distract the cat and grab the little bat and put in amongst the flowers for safety. As with most cats, Lucifur has very strong hunting instincts (I reckon Ish said he killed birds, insects and some rodents before), and so it was imperative that we separate the two or else Lucifur would end up playing with the bat and eventually killing it. 

Sadly, when we checked the little guy at 6:00 AM the next day, it was covered in ants and then died shortly thereafter. 


Poor little bat. I hope he's okay in bat heaven.
