misadventures with shawe
okay, before we go to the misadventure part, I found this travel planner on top of my table when I woke up, my mom said it's from her boss. the night before this, Arwin and I were talking about future plans and travelling the word and I am taking this as a sign. I should work hard and save to travel :)
going back to my story, agenda for that day was to get my driver's license with my bestfriend Shawe. I asked him to pick me up since I can't drive alone yet.
So we went to LTO, had my medical and drugtest and tried to process stuffs.
While waiting, we had the time to catch up since we seldom see each other.
We waited for hours and there's no progress. they keep on telling us to wait and wait and wait.
so we decided to leave and come back next week. we went to MOA instead. we got bored strolling around so we drove around. I let him drive my car this time and taught him how to drive an automatic, since his is manual. We came across this new building with an amazing architecture so we got curious and went up.
When we got back where we parked, the engine wont start. turned out, Shawe locked the steering wheel (which I didnt know can be locked) and we both didn't know how to unlock, so we were stucked there, for I think more than 30mins without aircon, trying to figure out what to do, slightly panicking while reading the car's manual. and the manual says we need to contact the nearest office-- which made me panic even more. we were hesitant to ask help because we're afraid to trust strangers but then we really didn't know what to do so we finally asked the driver of the car infront of us in the parking lot. he suggested we get out of the car, lock it and start from the beginning (unlocking the doors of the car) we followed what he said then, woah,finally! the engine started! whew. thanks to the helpful manong!
so we drived from prism plaza to macapagal and we noticed the aircon's temp wasn't cooling at all. I started to worry again so we parked at a gasoline station and tried to solve the problem. We stayed there for a while, Shawe kept on reading the manual and I was thinking of asking help from the staff of the gasoline station. then Shawe pushed a button, then boom, aircon started cooling! turned out I was the one who pushed that button when we were trying to make the engine start. I didn't know what it was for so I kept pushing buttons. lol lesson learned! I promise to read my car's manual from cover to cover. haha
then when we were on our way home, Jade texted me if we want to meet somewhere to chill, we ended up at the new Cobo (milktea) branch.
