Swimsuits and Memories

Thursday, June 21, 2012

My friends and I have started planning for another getaway.  We haven’t decided on the exact location, but it would most probably involve some sun, sand and surf.  What a perfect excuse to buy another swimsuit, I told myself. And so, indulging my vanity, I did.  I bought a two-piece, green and black twist bandeau.  Its sight gives me that extra push whenever I’m too lazy to exercise. 


Embarrassing as it may sound, I admit that I collect swimsuits. One-piece, two-piece, bikini, monikini, tankini, bandeau, maillot, halter top, string top – I have them in different styles.  It’s fun to look at each of them and remember where I wear them for.  Each swimsuit I associate with a happy memory, a fun vacation, or a wonderful place: the brown, polka-dotted two-piece that I was wearing when my boyfriend and I walked along the shores of Tanjung Aru in Penang as the sun expired; the pink floral maillot that I was in when my eyes got seriously infected while snorkeling with the girls; the floral swim dress that I wore when my friends and I had a marvelous time island hopping in Boracay; the yellow tankini that lent me some needed propriety in the company of family in more conservative areas in the country; the blue and green bandeau top that I wore while watching people frolicking in the sands of Pattaya.  Every piece is special because of the happy times that went with it.

if pilipinas lang, baler and siargao are two places na dapat mong isama sa mga pagpipilian mo. :-) been to siargao (wwoooooowww!) pero di pa sa baler. they say baler is just as beautiful. :-)

pero baka galing ka na sa mga lugar na yan...?

bohol, coron, el nido ang mga pinagpipilian. isa-suggest ko din yang mga lugar na binanggit mo. sa totoo lang, hindi ko pa naikot ang pilipinas. sa boracay, bataan at batangas lang yata ang mga napuntahan ko na beach. hahaha
