1) College org activity around Nov/Dec. (pre-Christmas) - Super successful! =)
2) For their Family Day (January) - break even only. =P
I already didn't want to participate in this bazaar when they moved it from November to January, but the college girls lowered the rates that you can't even say no to such good deal!
Arrived there minutes before 9am, and the guard in Gate 1 was super strict as usual. He even asked me to sign a paper -- itemize everything I have with me, and place my contact info. At the end of my list, I wrote "Ana Gonzales SSC HS Batch 2003" --> Hahaha yabang lang! :D
I met my fellow bazaarista Beam of Art Wine when I reached the venue (New Building!). She's really super nice and easy to talk to, as if we were old time friends. :)
Ate Baby and Beam in their super cute stall! :)
When the organizers came with our tables and chairs, Beam was just about to place her trays of cute velvet goodies, when kids already stampeded toward our stalls! Simultaneous ang pag set-up and transact and pa-sales-smile ko non, hahahaha! I super love the support from the Kulasas!
Kid 1: I'll bring my P500 tomorrow!
Kid 2: I'll bring my P1000!
Opposite Breaks: After their recess was our chance to have a break! :) I ate my lunch before 12--just so I am ready pag lunch break na nila! :D
My Egg Sandwich with extra cheese + Hash-brown! :)
Namiss ko naman BBM with Mango-Large! :D Haha!
As predicted, more sales during the lunch break of the Grade Schoolers and High Schoolers. I really had so much fun transacting with them, benta parin mga hirit nila! :D Here are some of my twits and photos to summarize my day:
Though I wasn't really close with Ate Annabelle when I was still a gusgusin student is SSC, she's really nice to hang out with me awhile ago. We even had a nice long conversation post-lunch (aka dead time). Boredom nearly killed me, and Ate Annabelle saved me with her St. Scho updates and stories. :) <3
Here was my little stall's set-up, with the sabog-lang carpet, hahaha:
My spot is super near my dear ol' senior year tambayan with barx. :P
Pasilip silip tuloy ako nun, I really miss our high school life!
Thought Balloon: Sino na kayang pumalit sa benches namin? :P
I also had the chance to stroll around the campus, and spotted this:
Sheeet pulutong!!!! :D
Constructions here and there:
Uy dati iisang pusa ka lang, ngayon angkan na kayo mga furballs a! :D
Oh shoot sorry galit siya! Hahahaha!
Later in the afternoon, my dear blogger barkada Ava came to help me out--fresh from school! :)
THANK YOU AVA! I really appreciate your time and great company!
Beam on daddykins (who helped me with ingress and egress aka taga buhat ng gamit) and Ava: "Anaaaa! You're so blessed with a very supportive dad, and a supportive friend!"
Couldn't agree more! :)
The bazaar was supposed to end at around 5:30pm, and the campus was almost empty by then. I saw the roving guards (in barong, mind you sosyal na sila kuya a haha!) asking the students na nakatambay pa sa benches/stones and high school building (naka-indian sit sa floor!) to go to their respective gates already. I was already packed up, and Ava and Beam had to leave already--but daddykins was still on his way from work. As usual.
Oh my, parang high school lang uli! Nag flash back tuloy: this was actually normal to me every night before! Palipat lipat and nasasarhan ng gate coz dad was busy with work. But that time there's Ana who will accompany me till Gate 1 (last gate to close). Tinataguan nalang niya ang kaniyang driver so we can still extend our tambay / kalokohan time! :D
Poor baby girl in Gate 6 waiting for her parents. :-/
Naiiyak na siya...nakakarelate ako! :S :D :P Haha!
Heard that high school will have no classes tomorrow (darn :p). Benta pa naman sila! But still, hoping for another fun day. It may just be walls and grounds--and it wouldn't be the same without the people, but it is the least I can do to pretend or feel as if I am a high schooler again.
PS: If you are given the chance to go back or transport through time just for a day, will it be a day in your grade school, high school, or college life? :))
