Travel diary on Dec 30, 2012

I left the hotel and took LRT Line 3 to go to Magallanes. What made me surprised was that all the ticket counters were closed. I asked a baggage inspector why that happened. She explained to me that automatic turnstiles were out of order and that we could take trains for free. How awesome LRT's handling was.
At Magallanes, I walked to EDSA to change trains.

By PNR Line 3, I went to Santolan, the terminus of LRT Line 3. I ate lunch at food court in the mall in front of Santolan station. The noodle I ate was almost same as that I ate in Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Surely, I could see Kiha 52 series trains but, the color of them was different from the train I saw yesterday.

I walked all the way to SM mall of Asia. I thought it was safe for me, but dozens of street children pestered me for money.

At the mall, I just ate dinner. To tell the truth, I wanted to buy souvenirs, but couldn't find goods for souvenirs.
I left the mall for Taft Avenue station(next to EDSA) by jeepney to avoid street children. To my disappointment, a street girl ran into the jeepney and pestered for money. Though I didn't give her money, it made me disappointed.

After reaching Taft Avenue, I went back to the hotel.
