Nostalgia at Rose's Blog


100 YEARS OF PHILIPPINE INDEPENDENCE …. 12 years ago … for the first and the last time I was able to wear an Imeldific-look,(in blue terno) naks! This was during the celebration of the Philippine Centennial 12 years ago. This look worth all the gripping and the holding of breath,

I won an Alvaro Jimenez painting during the event raffle, gallery worth during that time P48K, now, I wonder how much this painting cost. All of the pieces exhibited during that time were painted on dried banana skin and so this one.

I missed wearing body hugging clothes, seems like somebody would be committing a sin mocking me at my back seeing me in this outfit now.

Anyway, can’t think of something more to write, just came from a three-hour straight lecture… jocks, dried throat, dried brain ……

See you again next week at Rose’s Nostalgic Marveling.
