After a Year....

After almost a year, Ifinally bought a pair of shoes. 

It's been almost a year ago since I bought my last pairs of Rusty Lopez shoes for 2012. Now, I bought Rusty Lopez again at a bargain price. Had it not for the bargain price and that I am getting out of comfortable footwear already, I will not yet buy a pair of shoes. 

For many times, I got to the office in my flip flops - that which I call tsinelas leadership (#salamatjesse). When I go home, I have to wear slippers again and leave my closed black shoes in the office.

Walking is an essential part of my life. That is why I badly needed a comfy footwear. And in a tropical country like ours, open-toe sandals and slippers are all-around footwear. Except for offices that do not allow people in slippers like DFA and Camp Aguinaldo, slippers can be worn outside throughout the time. I have three pairs of shoes in the office so there is no problem with me wearing slippers when travelling from my pad to office and vice versa. 

The problem comes in when it rains. Open-toe shoes are not advisable to be worn especially when going out in the rain. Our feet might come in contact with bacteria from leptospirosis. For middle income earners (like me) who cannot simply afford for a nice rain shoes, I have no choice but to be in my slippers. I have slippers in the office too. That is why I can change footwear anytime. 

Anyway, thanks that I was able to buy a pair of shoes after a long time.Frugality, indeed, is my way of life. Otherwise, I will be buried in debt if I will be living beyond my means.

Not a pooping incident
