But I was extremely brand-conscious. Especially when it came to my footware. (Until now.)
Actually, this dragged on to my law school years, when I had her buy me, again in Greenhills, Dr. Marten’s Shoes. Not the boots, of course. Just the short lace-ups that proved extremely reliable because I commuted to law school.
Yes, I know. I really picky about my footwear.
In some twist of fate, however, I was in Greenhills yesterday. Of course, I bought some accessories for my iPod (another metal case and a strap I can use for biking). But as regards footware, it was my turn to buy one for Bea.
Bea’s becoming just as brand conscious as I am. I bought her Christmas present- Havaianas Flip-flops. Looking at these slippers closely, they were just extremely overpriced Spartans or Beach-walks. I mean, extremely overpriced (by at least 10 times)!
Well, I could not protest. It was, as I have figured by now, my turn… and my little girl is growing up… oh no!
Wish me luck.
