Happy Valentines Day to all!
Philippine Valentine’s Day has never been the same since 5 years ago. The now infamous Valentines Day Bombing scarred our history books with blood and death; and the Ayala Avenue bombing’s smoke was witnessed by yours truly.
My former colleagues and I (BPI Bancassurance) decided to eat out to celebrate the occasion. The place: Super Bowl of China – Glorietta. The Ayala Avenue MRT Station was in perfect view from the window of the restaurant.
Zero Hour: A loud explosion was heard! Then smoke rose in the background. We didn’t panic. But the other customers did!
Everybody ran from their tables and left their food! “San naman sila pupunta? Eh anlayo naman nun! Mas safe dito.” Somebody uttered from our group.
We finished our dinner and waited until everything was calm outside.
Before we left our waitress was obviously sad so we asked, “Miss, bakit?”
“Kasi po,” she sobbed, “Andaming hindi nagbayad!”
