Basta special, me itlog.
I really have to write about the origins of that statement above sometime, before I grow old and forget about it. It has nothing to do with where Sam and I went today though, on this rainy Thursday afternoon. I had long wanted to take a leisurely walk down Raon Street, haven for do-it-yourself’ers and handymen. I needed to purchase two simple tools: a set of hex keys (Allen wrenches) and a rubber dust blower. The Allen wrench I needed to be able to open up the old HP scanner/fax/printer we have at home so I can clean up the underside of the glass bed. The rubber dust blower I needed to clean in between the keys of the office-issue T43 (pre-owned by some smoker who shall not be named).
And since we were in Quiapo we just had to drop in on Ma Mon Luk. Last time we were here was in October of 2005. The special mami and special siopao meal is something worth dying for on a rainy Thursday afternoon.
While we did find both blower and wrenches after a long and winding trek through puddles and occasional rain, I also found out where to get stuff that I otherwise wouldn’t even dream of getting, like the airsoft helmets and masks above. No I didn’t get any of those.
