if you understand Filipino: if you know that ipis=cochroach : and if you know that a ladybug is that red thingy and not a bat nor a bag:
well, this one's a bit corny, but if you come to my place, i'll tell you the story with gusto :))
the quest for the ladybug costume began 3 weeks before when ate phoned in from Oman asking for Sage's costume for Zoe's birthday party this 24th..since tis the season to be scary, i expect malls to be geared up on this event..fairies, mermaids, the devil..you name it, they should know it! especially the saleslady..as far as i can remember, i did say LADYBUG the way you should say LADYBUG
sa SM Sta. Rosa
Jayde: Miss, miss (preppy tone) meron ba kayong ladybug costumes?
Saleslady: ay dun po ang bag section hindi dito.
Jayde: hindi miss, yung ladybug, yung color red tapos may dots na black na costume.
Saleslady: ah, wala po kami nun
Okay. calm down. maybe i should say the word with more conviction. L-A-D-Y-B-U-G
two days later, sa SM Dasmarinas
main character: me again :))
Jayde: same spiel: miss, san yung ladybug costumes nyo?
Saleslady: dito, teka tingnan mo
yes! feeling giddy, finally i'd get to go home
Saleslady: eto po may bats kami dito
Jayde: miss hindi yan, yung parang ipis na red tapos may black dots
Saleslady: now laughing, ah wala po kami nun.
my nieces settled for the fairy costumes anyway..as of this post, it's in the plane na :))
who wants to be a bug anyway? when you can be a pretty girly fairy with fairy dust and fairy wand and pixie wings!
