aryanna a.k.a. "ai" and mikah a.k.a. "hama"
meet "ai" and "hama." they call themselves the "twin-tuition" or "twinnx" because they have a lot of things in common.
i'm glad my daughter is best friends with mikah. just like aryanna, she is creative, funny, polite, loves sports and music. they have a lot in common and spend a lot of time together doing kids stuff:
rollerblading/skateboarding while pretending to be rock stars...
showing off their skills...
and posing for the camera.
they also do a lot of music videos that are campy and funny. one day, with their permission, i will post it here.
i've always been more fascinated with what's inside of a kids bag than grown-ups. i think they are more interesting, funny and borderline obscure.
what's inside mikah's bag:
clockwise: 'the nightmare before christmas' bag, nokia phone, 2 ticket stubs, mouse with heart bag chain, gel, bronze medallion, 2 unsharpened mongol pencils, ballpen, lighter (according to mikah, she "confiscated the lighter from her mom because she's pregnant. cute!), i pod nano, bills, rosary with virgin mary container, 'messy bessy' hand sanitizer, and a month-old gum.
what's inside aryanna's bag:
clockwise: emily strange bag, lucky star minature doll, mood ring, strawberry keychain, bingo card (why?), prescription glasses, motorola phone, strawberry-flavored "sipahh", tokidoki 'strawberry milk' figurine, emily strange wallet, wind-up sushi, digital tape and nintendo ds.
as you can see, there are so many obsure yet cute things you'll find inside a kid's bag. some things are head-scratchers (like bingo cards, toys and month-old gum), but more interesting than the used tissue you'll sometimes find inside a grown-up's purse. ew.
after playing at the park, the kids get a treat at mini stop.
their favorite: the giant sundae cone! wow. P10 promo.
spotted: we bumped into one of philippine fashion's designer icons, pitoy moreno at mini stop. i introduced the kids to mr. pitoy and he obliged us with a photo op. so cool!
i chatted with mr. pitoy and mentioned to him that when my husband took a photo of him for the phillippines year book a few years ago, he sent me a copy of his book and wrote a sweet dedication. i finally got to thank him personally and he was such an interesting man to talk to.
