MY RED SANDALS

I’ve been absent for two weeks from GT circulation, thing was I find it hard to paddle through my murky brain about the movies that I would be recommending when I have not seen it, so I’d rather be absent than making up one I didn’t even see.

Anyway, I love this month’s GT topics, it’s not as hard I thought, lol. Hmmmm. Red! The first thing I thought of was this slippers, this is my most priced shoe among my collection…….waaaaaaaaahhhh, feeling si Imelda, hmmmm, all girls have this syndrome, kahit di kasing expensive ng collection ni Imelda … aminin …

This was given to me by a shortlived friend, she was a princess from Brunei, I met her when I was assigned to cover an event in Marawi City during the height of my first job as a newspaper writer circa 90’s. Her entourage was in Marawi to conduct humanitarian mission along with other delegates. I was given access since I’m a woman to get up close and personal with the princess, so sad I’m not allowed to ask, and never even attempted to ask kung sa kaninong asawa ng hari or principe ba siya anak, you know king /prince has quite a number of wives and covering events that involves royalties posed so much security risks, so di bale na…

I was tagging along through out their stay (I have lots of pictures but when I moved in my MILs house, I left them at my mom’s house, ang layo kaya ng Cotabato sa Davao, lol).

On the last day, she called me inside her room, akala ko may kasalanan ako, instead she handed me this … o diba, surprisingly, pareho kami ng size, 9. Swak! …. Her name was Princess Ririan and so is the brand of her shoe… wa ako masabi … feeling ko princessa din ako… lol… she thanked me because I wasn’t so intrusive … so as a reward she gave me this and allowed me ask more personal questions, ooohhhhhhh, scoop! But it was too personal that I can’t even take to write it as it would endanger her status as a princess… so wa nalang….
After they left this shoe has serviced all girls in the office, kahit tig-isang oras lang, kahit yung maliit ang paa kaloka …. Medyo nabura na yung pangalan… lol….if you ask if I still have contact with that lady, I don't have anymore, that was the first and the last, and I cannot forget that experience that made me nostalgic. Thus, I’m sharing this post with my friends at Nostalgia at Rose’s blog.


Thanks lovelies for dropping by.
