Give & Take

You know what, I really believe it pays to share. Whatever - time, gifts, information. I am always happy to divvy up the goods, especially when a friend/relative/acquaintance seeks out and will appreciate the advice. Always, you get what you give. Take this exchange between Sarj & I for instance:

Months ago...
Sarj: I really want those Repetto Zizis!!!



Tin: I've seen it at Bergdorf, La Garconne, eLuxury, we can go to Bergdorf one of these days so you can try it on...

Weeks ago...
Tin: Hey Lola Sarj! Check out this site called Wondershoe...



They've got really cute and cheap oxfords! This blogger, Diana Rikasari from Indo, wears it and she dresses really cute!



Sarj: Omg! I want the two tone oxfords with the black toe caps! And they ship to Manila! Do you think I can ask my bro to buy it and have it sent through your parents when they go here?



Tin: Of course! Make sure the shoes arrive in Manila before they leave ha!!!

Sarj: Ok, will let you know!

Last week...
Tin: Sarj! Rag & Bone has those two tone oxfords you want! On sale at eLuxury! It looks gorgeous!!! Wah!!!



Sarj: OMG! I'm getting it, wait wait, let me checkout!!! Bili ka na din!!! (Buy a pair too!)

Tin: I don't want to buy na! You na lang! But when it gets to you, tell me how it fits and I hope it's still available in case it turns out super dooper nice! If it's there, it's meant to be! (Feeling strong self-control)

June 17, a passing thought while I was in labor...
Tin: Hmmm...I wonder if Sarj's Rag & Bone oxfords arrived na? Will eLuxury have it in my size kaya after we get discharged from the hospital? Hmmm....Oh oh oh, I feel the contractions coming again...

June 21...
Sarj: Tita Tin!!! Man, the shoes are too tight! I'll just wait for the all-black pair I bought from Totokaelo and see how it fits. You can have the two tone ones if ever because your feet are narrower! Wah!

Tin: OMG! (Palpitating) Really?! Are you sure?! Kasi (Because) eLuxury doesn't have it in my size na, size 11 na lang! (My true colors are shining through...)

Sarj: Sige, I'll bring the shoes when I visit Berry. It's so nice Tita Tin, I'd rather that one of us have it than have it sent back to eLuxury to get snapped up by some random chick!!!

June 25, through YM...
Tin: Sarj! Wacko Jacko is RIP! Uhmmm, did you see his shoes sa Billie Jean video (incidentally, I danced to Billie Jean on stage, in front of the whole grade school, when I was in first grade! Is it a sign?)! Two Tone Oxfords!

Sarj: Yun pa talaga naisip mo?! (Of all things, that's what you thought of?!) But uuuy, I saw your Lover post! Two Tone Oxfords!


June 26, our apartment...
Sarj: Tin...psst, try on the shoes...

Tin: Let's see if the shoe fits... (Kunwari pa...)

Sarj: Dali, para I don't have to ship it back na, heehee!

Dear Hubby (of course he makes a cameo here!): Ano na naman yan? (Now, what is this all about?) Looks at Toni (Sarj's Hubby). Tin is stuck at home, but her friends manage to get her to shop. All her friends call her telling her about these sales, they buy stuff for her when she can't go out. It's unbelievable!

Toni smartly smiles a smile of compassion and understanding at Harvs. He knows how Harvs feels, but he cannot say anything against two girls obsessed with shoes...

Tin: In my sweetest voice, Honey, may I buy this shoe? (Insert meek, innocent smile here...)

Dear Hubby: In an understanding (or resigned?) tone...Honey, it's really up to you! (Awwww...)

EPILOGUE:
Sarj goes back to getting Repetto Zizis, her first love. Tin ends up with the two tone oxfords, the love she couldn't forget.

LMAO omg... "If it's there it's meant to be" I say that all the time just to make myself feel better when I don't buy stuff on the spot and hope next time it's still there :) And my bf always say "it's up to you" all the time too!!! Toooooo funny!!!!

Ooh yes I love oxfords. I bought a couple from Cubao Expo last December. You would not believe how hard it was to find women's oxfords here in the Philippines. :O Coincidentally, I got two toned black and white ones then. Custom made for around 2000 pesos only! I'm planning to get Repetto Zizis right now. Crossing my fingers I get one in HK. :D

Yeah, I agree Joni! It's so hard to find decent shoes in Manila! You have to look for it real hard, while here, consumers are just spoilt for choice!
