Galleon Andalucia Failure


We wanted to go and see the Galleon Andalucia cause a.  It's free and b.  We have nothing to do during the afternoons.  We did have a hard time finding the place and a taxi that will take us.  When we finally found one, he actually ripped us off and didn't take us on the right place.  


There were a large queue of angry people when we get to Pier 13.  The guard told everyone to either wait or to go home and visit the next day.  Today is the last day of the Galleon viewing.  I can only imagine the horror queues there.  The thing with Filos are, they are not very organised.  I don't think they have considered the large turn out of people.  The Galleon was very much hyped up in the news.  What I didn't realise is that, it can only take 150 at a time.  The filos, as most of you know are suckers for photos.  Every inch, no matter how sh*tty the photos are.  

I remember when we viewed the Petronas Tower in Malaysia few years back.   You can only queue up for tickets on allotted time, they gave you your number and what time you are supposed to be there.  Viewing took 5-10 minutes too.  They should have done the same thing here.  Both free, but different story.  

We don't want to go home defeated.  We were supposed to go to Greenbelt for Spanish film fest but it wouldn't start til 4:30 I think so we went to the next best option, Star City.  I am happy that they are both excited to go.  I haven't been in ages so I was suprised on how the place looked like now.  We only took the Winter Wonderland package - 60PHP entrance plus 120PHP winter wonderland.  It was fun.  We slid 4 times.  It was cold!  I hope the weather is okay in the UK or I'll die.  BTW, you aren't allowed to take photos in Winter Wonderland, photos are 100PHP a pop.

While in queue.  Cheri, Moi and Warren.
Few Minutes into the Andalucia Queue.
Angry people.  
In Star City with Snow Bob.  Filos aren't original.  Snow Bob, really?  Sponge Bob!!!!
Bazaars inside Star City.  It's like Greenhills, TimeZone and Theme Park in one.








This is the new Ride.  I forgot how it was called though.  FYI:  I don't take rides in the PH.  I am so scared that they use substandard materials.  I don't wanna die young.
