Awkward, anyone?

It has been really really hot lately. Summer has officially graced our tropical nation with temperatures reaching a sizzling 34 degress Celsius, the other day.

At home, my usual garb is a tank top, shorts and my hair in a ponytail. Not glamorous. No makeup. No contacts. Plain, nerdy (thick glasses on), 'losyang' look all day, all week long. Sometimes, my neck and my back are covered with baby powder so I have the unflattering 'geisha' look.

My layered, wavy hair is at a strange length. The side parts are shorter than the back. I tend to wear a head band to keep the shorter hair strands off my face. The rest are tied with a ponytail then I put it up on my head with some plastic hair accessory (I don't know what it is called) to keep my neck, hair-free.

The other day, I couldn't find my usual head band so I grabbed the one I bought at HK Disneyland. You know, the one with Mini Mouse ears on them. I went on with my usual online activities, my household chores (cleaning, dusting, cooking).

Suddenly, the messenger knocks on our door to deliver our cable TV bill. I rush down and opened the front door. As I was signing the invoice, the messenger said "Ma'am, mukhang bumabata kayo ha" with a silly grin on his face. At first, I couldn't get what he meant. I thought it was kinda rude of him to comment or remark, he normally doesn't say anything at all. Then I realized he was referring to my head band and that drove me into a giggling fit. I tend to giggle when I am caught in some awkwardly embarrassing moment.

Note to self: Next time you open the front door, check to make sure you don't look silly or else bare the consequences of your appearance!
