Destiny (It Must Be)
You have probably wondered what you would be like after XX years, or what the grand plan for you is or who you'd end up being with.
At the same time, you have probably defined what destiny is or at least described it in whatever way can.
Well, for me, this is destiny...
I am on my way to meet some friends in Ortigas last week. Coming from the MRT station, I entered Shang because from there, just a few blocks away were my friends who were already waiting for me.
However, it was raining very hard and I don't have my umbrella with me. There's no way I can run and survive not wet. I attempted to hail a cab but all seem to have been taken by someone else.
I've made a commitment and I choose not to break it. Calling my friends won't make a difference, I already gave them my word.
So I decided to buy an umbrella, since I'm at Shang.
In the department store, I found a few. I didn't like the designs but I chose the safest one.
I paid the umbrella.
Found my way towards the exit... and ALAS!
It's no longer raining.
I thought, "This must be destiny."
And so it is.
I now have a PINK, POLKA DOT UMBRELLA in my custody!
