Continued from Our Liliw and Majayjay Sunday Getaway Part1
We left at around 2 p.m. because nobody wanted to continue swimming anyway (ang lamig nga kasi!). Then I suggested that we go to Liliw na lang, which all the ladies in our delegation supported. Hernan (Randy’s friend who was with us) said that Liliw was but 15 minutes away. Because Randy was in a good mood, he agreed despite the fact that Liliw = footwear shopping (hooray!).
And the Liliw adventure is what I’ll write about on my next post.
So we arrived in Liliw at about 2:30 p.m. Problem was, we had no money! The P1,000 I had in my wallet was used when we stopped for gas (we stopped for gas at somewhere really rural thus credit cards were not accepted). Randy too only had but a few hundreds, and my aliporeses did not bring cash either! Of course, they also wanted to buy their own footwear and were counting on me to give them advance salary. Good thing we saw an ATM near the shoes shops! Anyway, here are the goodies, to show you but a few:
Aside from this pair of pink slippers, I only bought another pair of bootie-sandal-wedges…I know, I know–you’re asking, “Why just two?!?!?” Take a look at this:
When you see your husband’s and your other male companions’s faces like that, you know that the party’s over! Too bad I didn’t just buy and buy the shoes I loved–why oh why did I have to run through the shoes stores in a block twice and when I knew what to buy, I saw those faces! Hrmpft. So the only other pair I got was this bootie-sandal wedges I told you about earlier:
I’ve already worn this pair in one of my first classes this summer (see it HERE), and I was surprised that these shoes were really comfortable! I wore this for almost six hours straight standing up and pacing around the classroom while teaching. With the delight and surprise came the regret once again. Grrr, I should have gotten more!!!
Anyway, I and our female helpers immensely enjoyed our shoe shopping in Liliw. By the way, the Liliw Tsinelas Festival will kick off on April 30.
I’ve been to a Tsinelas Festival about six years ago with a pal I miss, Carla Calumpang (aww Carla. It’s been a loooong time!) and I went half crazy with all the footwear on sale there were!
If you’re on a budget yet are craving for shoe therapy, go to Liliw! You’re gonna love it there, swear!
