This post’s title doubly serves as some sort of a gay-dar. Yep, it can tell whether the guy in question is gay or straight. Show this post to him, and if the guy easily understands what it means, then CONFEEEERMED!!! Or you could also give him the benefit of the “daw”, like:
- Eh kasi magaling lang daw talaga siya kaya niya na-gets agad. – okaaaay…
- Kasi [daw] raw narinig na niyang ginamit ‘yan ng asawa/girlfriend/kapatid niya. – mmmhmmm…
- Marami [daw] raw siyang kaibigang gay kaya magaling siya sa gay lingo. – kaibigan lang DAW?
Anyhoo, in case you don’t get the “giraffe”, it means “hirap”. As in, “Ma-giraffe ang exam!”
But this post isn’t exactly intended to be a gay-dar. I had to insert “giraffe” because this outfit post is giraffe-dominant! Yup, as in the long-necked animal. This was Raviv on our Tagaytay Highlands getaway:
As you can see, he was wearing a shirt and jogging pants with figures of giraffes stitched on them! I bought them together last summer at some tiangge; they’re not terno nor do they come from the same line. Both of them were just too irresistible for me (well, the color yellow pops out in both—and yellow is my fave color). Raviv loved them! And as soon as these items were washed he wanted to wear them.
Here are a closer look and the details about the ensemble:
- unbranded mustard yellow T-shirt (actually it has a tag but it’s in Chinese characters and since I can’t read Chinese unbranded na lang. Haha)
- Gong Zao Fu Shu jogging pants
- Nickelodeon Go Diego Go sandals
- Abaca hat from SM Dept. Store (we saw the last of this hat on this day in Tagaytay Highlands :()
Both the shirt and the jogging pants were not really designer clothes. But I don’t care, because I only have two criteria when it comes to buying kids’ clothes:
- It has to look cute on the kid—the kid’s skintone and frame have to be considered. And well, doesn’t Raviv look adorable in this ensemble?!?
- The material should be at least 90% cotton, and both the shirt and especially the jogging pants were really soft. When Raviv was still a tiny, tiny baby, I made the mistake of buying a polo in SM that was on sale—it sold for only less than P200. I think I bought three right away (because I was excited! The design was classy and it was cheap!), and regretted almost immediately. When I brought it home and compared the fabric to Raviv’s other clothes, I suddenly realized that the fabric might feel rough against my son’s velvety soft skin. I doused it in fabric softener but it still felt rough.
As you can see, Raviv still looked cute in cottony-soft kids’ clothes that didn’t cost much. For him, it’s not ma-giraffe maging cute. 😉
Tell me what you think!
