These Boots are Made for Wading

Wednesday, August 15, 2007
A quarter past seven this morning, I woke up to the heavy, staccato sound of the rain spattering against the window and the subtle murmur of the wind. All hell’s breaking loose, I said to myself. Wondering if there’s work, I rummaged through my clothes to look for the appropriate attire. Then it occurred to me, this day calls for The Baguio Look. I unearthed my ancient red wool sweater and camel colored skirt. And to complete the look I brought out my rarely used chocolate brown suede ankle boots. Oh what a beautiful day to finally be able to wear my boots and old Baguio clothes! This is one case of turning a dismal day into something exciting.


Then I rode the elevator - hoping that by the time I reach the ground floor of the condo the heavy downpour has turned into a light drizzle. But it didn’t! I waited for a while until impatience set it. Wearing my outfit for the day and armed with determination, I waded bravely through the storm, looking forward and ready to take on what this day has to offer.

Not the usual look at third world countries but the best for typhoon and flood. Japorms!
