I’ve posted about Liam’s costumes last year and as you can see am a bit pasaway. Anyway, this year, I will try my best not to be pasaway. But comfort will still be top of my priority.
Here’s what he wore last Linggo ng Wika celebration…
One thing I like about Liam’s school is that they send out memos weeks before actual event. This gives parents more time to prepare and plan their trips to the mall. So walang cramming.
3 weeks before their program, their required costumes was announced – Camisa Chino, Khaki tokong pants, scarf, buri hat and any thong slippers. Easy lang yan!! hehe
Buri hat was needed the following day so we bought that one first. Good thing we found one in the nearest mall at only 25. I just asked Donna to sew a lining inside para di makati for Liam or else he might not wear it.
Scarf was also easy as we decided to let him use his “unused” scarf last year. He did not wear it last year as he don’t want anything on his neck. This year, ayaw pa din nya, but I did not give in to his pleas and cries. (read: “Tanggal this, please”) Snob ang beauty ko. He obediently wore those din whole time. Yun lng pala ang technique! 🙂
Khaki tokong pants was a bit hard. Initially, I plan to buy a soft khaki fabric and have 1 sewn for him. Unfortunately, did not find anything I like, so I decided to look for a ready made one. While painstakingly looking, I remember Liam having a Beige Columbia (mosquito repellent) pants. So I just asked Donna to fold and saw. Voila!! Tokong na sya!! ok naman diba?!?!
Last was the camisa, this was the easiest but dito ako muntik sumablay (hehehe). Another good thing about Liam’s school, days before the program, they require all kids to bring their costumes for checking. So we chose Liam cleanest white shirt (this is what he wore every night to sleep) When we got home that night…
Donna: Ate, mali ang damit ni Liam
Me: Anong mali?! e Camisa Chino lang naman ang need
Donna: Kailangan po pala may kulay.. Bright color po sabi ni T’May…
Me: Di naman nakasulat sa memo un ahh..
Donna: Nakasulat po ate.
Me (checking the memo again): ok, will buy colorful camisa chino..
TOINKS!!! di nagbabasa ng mabuti ang nanay!! It was clearly written – Bright colored camisa chino! hehehehe
Thanks to our ever reliable Gaisano Countrymall (2mins walk away from office or from home), we were able to buy Liam a blue one. 🙂
Watch his performance here. Enjoy!
