Brownout at Robinson’s Place Malate (Pedro Gil Wing).
Tissa and I went to see Karate Kid last Saturday at around 4 in the afternoon. The Twilight Zone moment happened as soon as we got out of the cinema—it was dark but there were still people around, shopping and eating in the restaurants sans lights. We found out that it had started to rain (very hard) and that half of the mall’s electricity (the Midtown area seemed fine) went out. Some shops had to close but all we worried about was getting home for Tad’s exhibit opening at Sigwada Gallery. The three of us (Tissa, Tad’s hermit crab, and I) eventually got home safe. Pedicab+overcrowded LRT+walking in floodwater for the win.
