On mother's day, we woke up earlier than usual because I wanted to go swimming before the rainy season starts. But we wanted a place that was nearby and not too expensive. We nixed the idea of Tagaytay since we just went there. Ma vetoed Water Fun in Sucat. So where to go? Sneak into a fancy hotel? Luckily, Twinx knew a co-teacher who owned a members- only club in Merville called Nomad's. She got us in for free(Yey!!!) and we were able to spend the whole day just lazing by the pool and watching mostly Europeans play cricket and football and lawn bowling. You have to buy ticket stubs to pay for food and other items (just like in school fairs) which is not so convenient for us but very profitable for the club. By the end of the day, we still had about a hundred pesos' worth of stubs, which was not enough for ma to buy a souvenir cap so instead of buying another bunch of tickets worth P200, we just bought drinks and ate merienda at greenwich, just outside the subdivision.

How I wish we could have our own swimming pool! But with our area's water shortage problem, that will just have to remain a dream for now.
