payong ng kalawakan

Posted on: November 16, 2009

“now that it’s raining more than ever, know that we’ll still have each other… you can stand under my umbrella”

lagi nalang nasisira ang mga payong ko. nyahahaha. lagi nalang ako nakakarinig ng sermon na wag lang bumili ng cute… bumili din ng kwali-teee… hetong history ng payong ko…

1. yellow umbrella from bayo … overused;  2. red striped fibrella … destroyed by miming when he tried to pick padatoo up from si-bee-gi; 3. houndstooth from bench … destroyed when somebody sat on my bag; 4. another houndstooth from bench only this one is of a lighter color … destroyed by some typhoon. now all these four umbrellas were what i would call “cute” so i decided to buy an ugly one. hahaha. 5. super duper plain black fibrella … destroyed by that killer typhoon, ayaw ko nalang i mention yung name niya, it brings bad memories…

so well, miming’s umbrella was holding quite well. i decided to try it out. found similar ones… they’re called bantam umbrellas. di ko alam kung bakit mo ipapangalan sa isang manok ang isang brand ng payong pero yun ang tawag eh. on the tag, you’ll find a short description of the umbrella… “sporting a wind and water resistant canopy bantam is engineered to fold conveniently to a compact length so you can tuck it away easily when not in use. this umbrella protects your skin from the sun’s harmful uv rays.” hahaha, humanda ka, mr. sun!

i bought a printed one ala burberry (see pic above), para malandi ng konti, hehehe. ok naman siya… passed two storms already and it’s sturdy enough that it does not matter if i accidentally sit on my bag. it’s automatic too… and costs… well, let’s just say, for an umbrella like that, it’s worth it. payong yan ng kalawakan! bazoom bazoom!

it’s nice to find happiness in small, everyday things… tulad ng payong! did i mention these umbrellas were named after a chicken? hahaha. o yeah, i did.

yun lang.
