I couldn't decide what to title this post.
Or if I should start it with a quote from my dad.
"Why must you want everyone's attention on you????!!!" - my dad to me.
Shucks, he means well. Loosely translated, that's... "Honey, you are such a unique dresser!"
Big thanks to that popular surplus shop called, Ukay-Ukay! (Ooh... I can almost feel you cringing)
Ukay-Ukay isn't anything new. It's a cramped clothes store found on every block of your neighborhood. People come here in secret. And people still think it's a dirty hellhole where the old clothes of the dead (the violently killed ones, according to urban legend) are donated. Maybe. But if you're a smart skirt shopper, you will find unopened boxes in the back room of this tiny hole-in-the-wall. Inside these, the clothes are actually new, incredibly unique ones shipped from China, Hong Kong, even Timbuktu.
Ranging from Php100 to Php 300, I believe they go into the Best Buy/Good Job Section of my shopping track record. That's because I'm an incredible budgeteer.
And yes, dad, I do love the attention. :P
