[Oh my goolai, bumabagyo na at lahat hindi ko pa rin pala napo-post ito!!! I made this draft weeks ago, but was only reminded about this tonight. Anyway, here it is]
Up to the day before our outing, I was still scouring mall with Raviv’s swimwear. See, his old swimwear was already too tight.
Raviv and his super sexy swimwear at Tagaytay Highlands last year
When I went to SM, Spandex swimwear for toddler boys his age (or size) was nil. I was told that it has been a week since the swimwear were pulled out, because it was already way past summer. I also checked out Robinson’s. Although it carried swimwear that would fit him, I did not like the designs available. Chaka. Tapos mahal pa. So thanks but no thanks. I was really desperate, because I knew Raviv would be so disappointed if he will not be permitted to swim in Punta Fuego’s swimming pool if he won’t not be wearing the “proper swimming attire”.
Good thing I remembered that I bought him board shorts about a year ago. At that time, his shorts were still too big for him (but they were on sale! So I had to buy!) so I just shoved them in his cabinet, on the “still-too-big-for-Raviv” shelf.
I got the shorts, tried it on Raviv and it was just perfect! I realized it was even better than the usual Spandex swimwear because Raviv can just wear it and when he want to get wet, we just remove his shirt and voila!—instant swimwear!
Now here’s Raviv when Team Brain Train went to Punta Fuego:
- abaca hat: from Shopwise (less than P100 ‘yan sa Shopwise! Saw something similar at Rustan’s, P1,000++ grabe!)
- white shirt: Old Navy
- board shorts: Carter’s
- footwear: from Novo (P60 lang!)
I forgot to tell you, pati pala sa footwear ni Raviv na-stress ako the night before. See, I thought he would be wearing the green, military-print Gingersnaps slippers given to him by my pedia friend Sugar, or his blue dog-face rubber sandals (also from Novo—cheaper because the pair’s only P40, but it looks classier) buuuuut—both were chewed by our bull mastiffs! Ayun, Raviv has no beach-appropriate footwear. So the night before, I asked Yaya Gigi to buy Raviv the same blue dog-face sandal rubber sandals at Novo. But Yaya Gigi said that design was no longer available, thus she settled on the yellow footwear. So ayan, mejo sablay ang footwear ng bagets.
