Last weekend we were in Robinson’s Place Manila. As usual almost every store were advertising they are on sale. My mother was looking at blouses in M&S while I was trying to control Iya from getting all the displays on the shelves. She was so intent on getting the Chocolate covered wafer curls the moment she laid her eyes on the wrapper. It was as if a beacon of light descended on that yellow and orange colored item. She was so insistent that Henry bought this for her. She carried the item to the cashier, gave the money to the lady, and held on to the paper bag. After all it’s her purchase.
