August 27, 2016 was a fun day for me and my friends. One of the Filipinas I hang out with in our area invited me and other ladies to have a road trip to Houston for a treat. Fiilipinos love Jollibee and the only Jollibee we have in Texas is in Houston.
We have made four stops while in Houston. The first stop was in Houston National Forest, there we found tall Pine trees and purple berries that I have never seen in Texas before. Second stop was Jollibee/Red Ribbon/Manila Mini Mart/Pugon de Manila. The highlight of the trip is to dine in at Jollibee, added bonus are the three other stores that are located in the same premises as Jollibee, so convenient for us.
The third stop was at Kemah Boardwalk. It is at least an hour away from Jolllibee but we had a driver whose feet can’t stay in one place. And advantage for all of us, not only we had a free ride/driver, we also got to feel the ocean breeze while at Kemah and exercised as well. It was one hot humid day but we didn’t mind it at all, we had too much fun to complain.
On our way back to Fort Worth, we stopped by Sam Houston visiting center where we saw and taken pictures of Sam Houston’s gigantic statue. “Sam Houston was an American politician and soldier, best known for his role in bringing Texas into the United States as a constituent state. His victory at the Battle of San Jacinto secured the independence of Texas from Mexico in one of the shortest decisive battles in modern history.”
It was exactly what I needed, to have fun, breathe some fresh air, hangout with people who laugh a lot, talk endlessly in our native language. If you have too much staycation in the house, all you could wish for is to get out for a day or two and that what happened last Saturday. I loved our trip and couldn’t ask for a better company these ladies in photos below.
Behind us is the main reason why we did not mind driving for 4 hours, because it is a treat!
