For the first time in my life, I went to a salon without my mother’s knowledge. It was my aunt’s day-off from work today, and she had plans to get her hair treated. She tagged me along just to have a pedicure.
From Valenzuela, we rode a cab to 11th Avenue in Caloocan, and there, I got my nails done…with nail art! Then my aunt told me to get a hot oil treatment. It was cheap, so I have no idea what went onto my scalp and hair (I think it was something Japanese). My mom always gave me the branded one (Kerastase, I think) at home, and she only gets me the expensive one (but the cheapest among the expensive ones) in salons. Then the stylist blow dried my hair and it turned out weird, so I him/her (I wasn’t sure because s/he seemed to be gay, but I didn’t see an Adam’s Apple. There) have it straight again.
We went out of the salon, then looked for a cab to take us to SM Valenzuela. Since the cabs wouldn’t let us ride, we waited for a jeep instead. Gosh it took us a long time before we rode one. It wasn’t my first time to ride a jeep, but I wasn’t comfortable because I was sitting between two guys (since it was crowded in the jeep and my aunt had to sit somewhere else). I’ve had bad jeenpey experiences involving men this summer. One was when a pervert sat in front of me. He kept on looking at my legs (but my shorts weren’t short at all. Just above the knees). Another one was with another perv. WHY ARE THERE MANY PERVS IN JEEPNEYS?!? WHY?!? Urbanidad!
So we got off at SM, and I went straight to National to look for Wuthering Heights, Animal Farm and Oedipus the King. I saw the first two, but I only got the first one because it was the same copy that was sold in school. The Animal Farm I saw had sheep on the cover, while Iris said that hers had a pig on the cover (and she bought her copy at school). After paying, we shopped for salad ingredients, went to Jollibee, and partly watched the coronation of Mutya ng Valenzuela… It was my first time to see a live beauty pageant. After, my aunt and I went home, ate dinner, and I started writing this post and posted it through my phone…
YES I FINALLY HAVE A PHONE WOOHOOO! And my birthday is 17 days away!
