Last night’s gimmick seemed very much like a page from my college years. After watching Miami Vice at the Power Plant and thinking that having coffee at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at Eastwood is just too far, we ended up picking Cathy and Mike up for a midnight snack in Tagaytay. It was a “sperm” of the moment kind of thing.
We got there at around 12:30 in the morning after testing out the Civic a bit in a relatively traffic-free South Superhighway. We were supposed to go to Cafe Lupe but backed out a few steps from their front door because of the loud music. We ended up at the Mile Hi Diner, which is just a short walk from there.
Food was mediocre at best (at least for what we ordered), but it didn’t matter as the stories and jokes of the early-morning gimmick coupled with the nice ambiance took the center stage.
We paid the bill and drove back to Manila after staying there for a little more than an hour. It was a fun drive as the girls were asleep and I had the chance to rev up the car till a little over 140 kph. With the Batman theme playing from the Ipod, there’s nothing more you can ask for.
It was almost four o’ clock in the morning when we got back after driving Mike and Cathy to their homes. We tried as much as possible not to much too much noise going up so that we won’t wake up Charo’s parents. But just when we’re about to turn off the lights, her mom called and asked us if we just got back home. Hehehehe!
