Ever since i got back from baguio, i have been more fascinated with ukay-ukay. Here in the philippines, this is what we call stores that sell second hand clothes. some people don't like the idea of getting hand-me-downs.. let alone BUY them! Personaly, I really don't mind at all! A couple of years ago, i had to change my WHOLE wardrobe due to the addtional 20 lbs i now house inside my fat storage system. i had a garage sale in our house and earned PhP 4,000+ by selling jeans for 60 pesos and shirts for 30 pesos.. plus all the junk na ok pa like my statio collection when i was a kid, some erasers, old figurins, bags, shoes etc. (tsk, nasenti tuloy ako)here's a pic of the girls and i in baguio. hindi pa kami naliligo niyan at suot pa namin ang pantulog namin when we went out (gross no?) dats sarah, moi, gen and katz:
nways, one of things i looked forward to before going up to Baguio (this is the summer capital of the Philippines) was to go ukay-ukay shopping! kaya lang mahal! they'd even sell stuff for 120! heeeeeeelllloo??? anu itu? brand new sa sm? nway, ang best seller sa akin ay ang 80's vintage outfits na super cute! aaah! being on the big side made it hard for me to find my size though. even if i really liked the style, them clothes just wont fit! then there were these cute shoes na 550 daw! huuuwaaat? eh yung huli kong binili na flats sa landmark 420 lang! Best buy din daw ang designer jackets.. although i just bought a super thick trench coat na purple!!! for 250.. kahit na wala akong idea kung saan ko sha gagamitin ano?
when i got back to manila, i discovered this ukay-ukay shop near our house. it' s real big with a good selection. i also found out that the owner is from baguio and had a shop in Bayanihan (ukay-ukay place) in Baguio as well. He had a sale na 3 for 100 kaya super bili ang lola mo! sa sobrang tuwa ko, the blouse i picked out had a hole sa may kilikili! mweheheh! be careful lang when you buy. make sure the shirt doesnt smell like B.O.! yuck!

Trading Post

Another Baguio adventure for me! I've been to baguio and it's only the first time that i got to visit this trading post.. it's not exactly in baguio though but still in the province of Benguet. (tama ba itong pinagsasasabi ko? nways, it took us like 20 mins from Baguio Condotel to the trading post.. this is so cool. It's like a covered court full of buyers and sellers and loads of veggies!!! as in trucks of green thinamajiggies! the catch is, it's really cheap! like a kilo of small potatoes were 10pesos! the big ones were only for 20pesos!! although i am not a vegetable fan, i still bought some which i eat occassionally with meat! Like cauliflower was just for PhP 45 a kilo while broccoli was selling at PhP 50 per kilo... (actually, nung una, 45 lang. Aba! after buying my potatoes, pagbalik ko, 50pesos na! tumawag daw yung may ari and nalulugi daw sila... blahblahblah!) pero mura pa rin ito.. tapos yung binili kong young corn na 55pesos napanis! grrrr! i wanted to buy 2 kilos each but then we were only taking the bus going home so kawawa ako dahil ang dami ko nang bitbit pauwi. Nway, when we went back to baguio sa palenke mismo, they were selling a kilo of brocoli for 90! may tawad daw hanggang 85.. sowssss.. sana pala dinamihan ko na ang bili.. I also this super cute baby sitting on top of a sack of i-dunno. He or she was just there in the midst of all the bargaining... when we all stared at the baby admiring his or her cuteness, umiyak! oooopsssyyy.. natakot ata..

My friend watson brought me and my friends to this cool cafe in session road. it's called VOCAS -(short for something i really duno).. nway, if yer into art, you'll definitely like this place.. it's an art gallery and cafe in one. you can order mostly veggie stuff.. so i had a difficult time reading thru the menu.. aside from everything being all green and leafy, i only had 3.25 in my pocket. watson brought us their right after our trip to good sheperd and mine's view.. so super nasimot yung moolah ko.. naawa sa akin yung iba ko pang friends na walang pera... so we chipd in and decided to order the following: kamatis pasta -- pene wid supr dming tomatos for 90 pesos and super sosy - peach crep for 70 pesos. The picture to the left was taken from the second floor. Ang ganda anu? yan si manong waiter sa gilid nakaka tuwa when he took our picture.. he was looking thru the small hole kahit na kita na sa monitor ang aking lovely kamera..Here are some of pictures i took: Hope you like them!
Ito na ang mga patay-gutom na gels.. nakita mo ba ang barya namin? sobrang chip-in yan na tig-5, 10, or 20 pesos.. ako ang pinaka foor kaya 3.25 alng ang nabigay ko. after ordering the pasta, sarah discovered that she had an extra 100 in one of her napaka daming wallets so we orderd for another pasta. the food pasta was great!!! tapos nakihingi ako ng salad na may apples and mushroom... at aba! masarap din sha! hehe... this cafe is really cool! We also got to meet Kidlat- a famous filipino artist who had his work displayed in the galery together with the works of his kids. =)
