Going home to Zamboanga brings back so many memories. One of them is of me spending hours in the garden when I was a child. I used to fantasize about having my own Secret Garden after watching the movie of the same title so I spent my free time planting, talking to flowers, and making random potions out of them. Some of my favorite flowers include the bougainvillea (which I used to squeeze in water to make colored “juices”), the hibiscus (perfect to create water bubbles with), and the anthurium (lovely flowers for church offerings).
When I grew up, this love for flowers translated into my unconscious attraction to flower prints in clothes. One such apparel of clothing is this skirt from Cotton On, which I found while thrifting one day.
I wore this while accompanying my mom with her grocery shopping today. The button down top is from Bangkok and the shoes are from Sebago. Thin fabrics are a must especially in this very hot city. Temperature today was at 31 degrees Celsius! Scorching!
Here are some of my mom’s flowers:
That’s it! Just a quick post before I go back to gift wrapping and cooking with my mom!
Have a very merry Christmas, y’all! Love you!!! x
