Shell of Asia in Bulacan

February 27, 2011 and SUNday.  Before the “long weekend” ended, another charming invitation to Apu Iru in Apalit, Pampanga proved so overwhelming to resist. Although, I already uploaded some of the photos of my first visit, the second visit was equally enchanting.  The ambience was still correspondingly indolent although the number of tricycles improved a bit, with casual carts of fruits and vegetables plying along the almost occupied street.
It was a sunny Sunday, but the atmosphere was just enough.  The traffic was considerably satisfactory and the gasoline stations were agreeably happy with a pack of vehicles from a long-weekend-trip.  This North side of Luzon carries promising places for long and short weekends with NLEX that makes one trip a “walk in the park”.

 The North Luzon Expressway (NLE or NLEX), formerly called North Diversion Road, is a 4 to 8-lane limited-access toll expressway that connects Metro Manila to the provinces of the Central Luzon region in the Philippines. The expressway begins in Quezon City at a cloverleaf interchange with EDSA: a logical continuation of Andres Bonifacio Avenue. It then passes through Quezon City, Caloocan City, and Valenzuela City in Metro Manila. Meycauayan City, Marilao, Bocaue, Balagtas, Guiguinto, Malolos City, Plaridel, and Pulilan in Bulacan. San Simon, City of San Fernando, Mexico and Angeles City in Pampanga. The expressway currently ends at Mabalacat and merges with the MacArthur Highway, which continues northward into the rest of Central and Northern Luzon.” (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

No wonder, with a good number of pleasant gasoline stations/food courts, one can  still pick out  SHELL OF ASIA – unquestionably not a development from a famed MALL OF ASIA.

Compared to other gasoline stations (I think I should not use the word “compared” but I ran out of words while writing this stuff), the Shell of Asia is a promising  - of course,  a gasoline station. But its services and facilities make it recommendable.  The comfort rooms are true to their labels – they are so comfortable and hygienic (aside from calling it clean).  So sad I forgot to bring my dependable Canon 1000D, I had to upload some photos from my other dependable google. Although we did not check the restaurants/fast food chains, I promised myself to spend a moment of coffee at the SHELL OF ASIA.
