I joined Outbreak Manila for the second time today. I seriously regretted not pushing through with my plans of dressing up in my old Filipiniana costume the last time there was an outbreak so I squashed my qualms of possibly looking ridiculous and wore one of those reflective MMDA vests.
I went over to Twinkle's house before the race began so we could go together and to check out our Physics project's progress. Man, it was so cool! The vid/trailer we were visualizing is slowly coming to life. I swear it is way pretty.
|l-r me, Chloie and Twinkle|
I saw a lot of familiar faces tonight hehe it was really nice. Anyhoo, the rain was what made the run fun. There were some areas that were so dark that we came thisclose to peeing. There was also this creeptastic construction area that had speakers to play scary background music and scattered huge cans that were on fire. All of this we saw while it was pouring huhu.
The zombies. Oh dear lawd the zombies' appearance have DEFINITELY improved!! Some were just downright hideous (that is a compliment).
- There was this one zombie cheerleader that was all slightly chill when we encountered her. We got away from her and was preparing for the next when all of a sudden we heard this blood curdling scream behind us. Lo and behold cheerleader zombie was running towards us!!
- I was trying to get past this zombie when this guy almost knocked me down. You know what the zombie near me did? He grabbed hold of my arm and steadied me, he even said sorry! Ahhhh cute cute zombie.
- We were at a very dark area when we saw this old man with an umbrella coming from the opposite direction. I tried to avoid him thinking he was out to get my flag...but when he got closer we saw that he was.just an old guy going out for a stroll amidst a zombie infected area.
- The race track was sort of like a huge U-turn so you could see those going the opposite of your direction. Twinkle and I were just talking and wondering if the zombies were allowed to crossover when this zombie turns around and starts going over to our side! I was all 'Twinkle!!!' and then I ran. I looked beside me though when I heard a noise and ta-da the zombie was running alongside me HAHA. I love him because he didn't try to swipe my flags hehe!
We didn't see much people in costumes tho and that was a bit of a bummer since I expected it to be like a huge halloween costume party. We did see a couple of Spartans, Alice in Wonderland and heaps of people in pajamas!
We went to Mercato, ate for a while and was heading back to our car when...I bumped into Mikee!! AHHH I MISSED THIS GIRL SO MUCH!! The last time I saw her was like during my birthday thingy back in our Freshman year huhu. We seriously need to do some serious catching up!
