Weekend Snapshot #2

My Weekend Snapshot for the week.

Mira's goes back to school starting today, and thus we were just busy preparing for it over the weekend. You know, the usuals; ironing her school uniforms, making sure her shoes are cleaned, her socks are lined up, her water bottle, school books and bags ready, et al.

After all the hard work, I took her out for a little bit of groceries shopping at Giant CMC. Between a choice of Pizza Hut and A&W, she opted for the latter. It reminded me of the time when I was a wee girl myself and how much I love A&W. They're the equivalent of McDonald's for me at that time. My parents never fails to bring me there at least once a month.

I'll have their Baby Bear burger (that was what their beef burger was called back then) which was served in a basket with french fries on the side and their Rootbeer served in tiny glass mugs. My late mother, on the other hand, will never fail to order her waffles with syrup and butter. My dad will order for one of their deluxe burger with his Rootbeer float.

The good old days, huh?

I miss A&W's root-beer floats!! They kinda ceased their operations in Singapore..I wonder why.

I buy the A&W root beer in can since there the stores here in the Philippines are gone too. Or maybe I haven't seen one recently.
