My youngest actively participated in their school activities this past couple of months. It meant buying costumes for those occasions. For Nutrition Month, he just wore his PE uniform and a hat decorated with (plastic) fruits. Then, he wore Barong Tagalog during the culminating activity for Buwan ng Wika last August 30.
We bought that Barong just few hours before the program, thankful enough that we live near a shopping mall, and rows and rows of stalls/stores that sell school uniforms and costume. The barong and white shirt cost Php750.
And last Sunday, he participated in a school event. He performed a song and dance number along with other Primary School learners. Here is his attire during the program.
Let me share a short conversation while getting ready for the event. His Papa helped him dress up and then when I saw him, here’s what I said…
Mamahan, You look like a waiter in a hotel
Yohan: No, Mama I’m a butler.
Butler or waiter, whatever! hahaha
