When I vacationed in Bolinao, Pangasinan last April, the only time I got to eat out was when my cousin Dang and I went to Alaminos City so I could visit their church. When we arrived in the city, we took some time window shopping first, and all the walk made us hungry, so we decided to eat lunch. It's been a long time since I last ate at McDonald's, so when she asked me Jollibee or McDo, I immediately went for Mickey D's.
This was my lunch for that day. I love McDonald's cheese burgers, but I went for their double cheeseburger because this kind of burger had patties that tasted like it was flame grilled and not fried. In the "normal" times, my sister and I would go for the double cheeseburger deluxe, but it was a bit pricey for me, so I omitted the deluxe part of it. Of course, burgers go well with fries, and I went for the large one because I just missed eating french fries. When the crew asked what I wanted for a drink, I went for the green apple float. I guess at that time it was their summer drink - the float consisted of Sprite and green apple syrup with vanilla soft ice cream.
When I took our foods in the table (my cousin had a burger meal, too), I was wondering why my cousin was still in the counter. When she came, she was holding two cups of caramel sundae because she told me it was her late father's favorite snack. Uncle Dennis died of lung cancer, and during chemo sessions, he would feel his body burning inside, that his way of cooling himself was through this sundae. I am not into sweets, and that my drink already had ice cream, but I didn't want to hurt my cousin's feelings since she personally bought the sundae for me, so I just ate the ice cream and tried not to get the caramel. Actually, whenever I go for sundaes, I would always tell the crew to put in little of the syrup because I am not much into it.
It's been three months, and I still haven't eaten McDonalds since then. I am missing it, but not really, as I am really trying to lose weight. I guess I will say good bye to Ronald (McDonald) for good.
