Big night tonight (I don't get out much)I have to attend this Filipino cultural dinner in a couple of hours and I still haven't decided what to wear:
a) black tube dress
b) red halter-top dress, with low back
c) see-through black lacey kebaya top, with a black tube top underneath; and fitting sarong
I'm leaning more towards a) and b) because I've either worn a) once and b) not all. Too many hiau clothes, not enough hiau nights. I tend not to go out much, especially for events like this. And I will wear high heels and might even put on makeup!
My mom's been excited of tonight for months: she's in the choir and she's modeling for the event/dinner.. Awww.... how can I not go? (Despite the thirty-ringgit ticket, which I complained and said, that since I'm only half-Filipino, I should only pay half; my mom countered that I should pay double for the privilege – cheeky, really)
She initially wanted me to wear the traditional Pinoy dress, puffed sleeves and all. I thought, "well, it's not so bad, I guess..." until she pulls out this LOUD. YELLOW. outfit. I put it on, and I'm practically Tweety. No way, Jose.
I guess tonight would be good for me, considering that I’ve been hermitting for a long while. It’d do me good to get out of the cave, and see people not related to me. Good opportunity too to take lots of interesting portrait photographs, other than my pets (but you love 'em, right?).
Dan’s coming, and hopefully Marita, if she’s feeling any better.
