Standing for two hours, soaked in all possible places during the typhoon Egay, made me swear to be more ready next time. Not that I was not; I was wearing washed jeans and bright blue cotton shirt, with a warm, water resistant trench coat to (presumably) protect me from getting wet. The people beside me failed to compare, wearing only their usual office clothes, some sans jacket, with some wobbly umbrella in hand. I thought my outfit was already “bagyo proof”, but a drenched, broken flats says otherwise. I nearly cried because that pair from Kimi is merely a month old!
I’m in serious need for some badass rain boots.
I’ve been meaning to buy a pair for as long as I can remember, but rain boots are traditionally ugly, until recent years when some shoe companies started designing pretty rain footwears. I worked in Alabang for almost 5 years, and since it’s faster to travel through friendship route, it’s practical to bring a car everyday. I park in the basement, I don’t get wet and I practically forgot about getting rain boots.
But now that I work in Makati, and have to take public transport often, I can’t risk plunging my much adored shoes in mud and rainwater. And my unfortunate Egay experience validated this need.
I roamed malls in frenzy, constantly texting my BFF who's also in search, but found none. Thanks to online stores, I found some really interesting, moderately priced booties. There were lots of choices from colorful eye candies to plain and classy (since it's my first and only, I favored this) but I'm such a sucker for animal prints and pretty, lacy prints so like a confused bride, I don’t know who to marry between these two.

Should I get both? I'm tempted. I can use some help that can save me from spending too much! Save me? =)
