Ako na siguro ang pinaka-pasaway na nanay when it comes to costumes. hehe..
One of the things The only thing I hate about Liam’s school is their open air auditorium.. Yes, it’s not air-conditioned. They always hold their activities there and I feel sorry for those Kids who wore “costumes”. You know all the works, wool, synthetic, polyester materials. I bet Liam will complain if he wears those.
Anyway, just want to share some of Liam’s activities where they have to wear costumes..
LINGGO NG WIKA
This was an easy one. They were required to wear Kamisa de Chino (easy, this is Liam’s staple sleepwear) and checkered pajama pants and a matching scarf to be tied on the neck. Since this was his first school program, medyo nag-effort pa ko. I bought a good clothe na checkered and had it sewn.
During practice Liam danced with his teacher and he was the only student following. On the program proper, nanibago ata with the loud sound system.. kaya eto sya..
What’s wrong with this event!? They require one of the parents to wear costume with their Kids and walk sa stage! Ang Saya! Para di doble gastos, I decided to let Liam wear his old Tiong Sam, so I have to look for a chinese top na lang though I know that for sure there will be lots of kids wearing same costume…
For some reason, Liam is not in the mood this day and end up wearing civilian clothes. They were requested to wear their favorite characters. Thinking that Liam would be the only one without costume, I asked my office mate to buy a Spiderman costume for Liam. Buti na lang din, he did not wear it, cause it really was a hot day and for sure double irritation for him, if he will wear it. 🙂
LET IT SNOW CHRISTMAS
This is when I started to be a pasaway. For their Christmas presentation, boys were required to wear a snowman costumes and girls were to wear snow fairy costumes. Pasted in their journals are these pegs…
Ang init ng peg diba!?!? I don’t have the heart to let Liam wear this knowing na open air ang auditorium. Kawawa sobra! so.. I bought him white muscle top, white pajama, red Santa hat and a piece of red clothe. Sew big black buttons (courtesy of T’ Marj) on the shirt… and here’ my little snowman.
January is the much awaited Sinulog Festival here in Cebu. They had a little program din in school to celebrate it. Eto sorry, pero we got the advice a day before lang. They were required to wear any Sinulog or Black shirt to school instead of their PE uniforms. No time for me to buy him a Sinulog shirt and Liam don’t have a black shirt. Sorry this is one Chinese trait that was retained with me. I don’t let my little one wear black. Pero buti na lang, one of my office mate gave Liam a black shirt as pasalubong from Singapore. Yes, you read it right, Singapore.. malapit naman sa Sinulog diba?! ahehehehehe
In fairness, Liam looks good in black, kaso ayaw ko talaga.. sorry, perhaps when he gets older? hehe
Naku, when Donna texted me about this, I was all problemado, isip ako ng isip what to let him wear. Buti na lang I asked Dino and he was the one who came up with the idea.. The shirt, Dino got it from BKK 2 years ago, I bought him the pants and the cap..
Sorry for the low res file, Ate Donna forgot to bring the camera, thus used her phone to take his pic. Will be getting more pics from T’Marj (sana maalala ko na magpadala ng USB)
MAGTANIM AY ‘DI BIRO
During Liam’s summer class, one of their activity was planting. They were requested to wear white long sleeves kamisa de chino, folded pants ala magsasaka, hat, scarf the work. Oh no! not for my son. Ang init kaya nung May! I told Donna to let him wear a sando and the folded pants he has and put some sunblock on Liam.
O diba!? E di ang presko ng anak ko. 🙂 And by the way, his plant is still at home may bunga na! Ang galing lang. 🙂
Well, that’s it for Last school year. Not looking forward to this year.. hehehe.. Oh well, I still promise to support all your school activities, anak. Pero I also promise not to let you wear anything uncomfortable. 🙂
