When I was a teenager in high school, around the time closer to our Christmas vacations, I used to cut classes with my cousin who went to the same Catholic school I went to. We figured, the teachers have already checked out anyway thinking about their own holiday plans and all they made us do was write essays or solve problems anyway.
Whenever we would do that, he would always stop by my classroom and give me the code “Temakats!” That meant, let’s go to Makati! The only stores (we didn’t call them malls back then) I knew then were Greenbelt, QUAD, Shoemart (SM), and Rustan’s. Sheesh! This post is totally dating me.
We would go to Makati because it would be far from Malate and no one would recognize us there and report back that we were playing hooky! We would roam around all afternoon or see a movie at times, ending it with a meal at the food court and then head home.
Shoemart or SM is everywhere these days. I’m sure, many of you are well on your way in getting your Christmas shopping done. But if not, here’s an opportunity:
