clothes from ukay

Last week maam is giving me lot of clothes. and school bags. All old things of her and Rayan and Sara. She saying Sally you take what you want and otherwise go put in donation box at choitram. I am looking at all these clothes and things and thinking they all looking like new. Maybe little bit stretch or fade but all are good brand. I know I am not putting this clothes in any box at choitram. The only box I put them in is my cargo box to send home.

Housemaid salary is so low we not able to buy so nice thing. Like maam buying one tshirt for 200 or 300 dirham. She always taking price off and throw in her room garbage. But I always clean garbage in so I see the bill. Always spending so much money on clothes. And shoes. She come home with so many shopping bag. One time I ask her maam show me what shopping you do. I just having interest because I not able to do this type of shopping. She getting very upset. She say Sally it not your business what I buy. After that I never ask her. I only look at bill in garbage.

Maam always give me her old tshirt. But maam is so thin than me. The first time she give me her things I am sad because I think it not fit me. but the tshirt is little bit stretch. Thats why she give it to me. So it fit me. Now I wear her stretch tshirt when I am going for my holiday on friday. It is so nice materal. Even in my dream I cannot buy a new tshirt like this.

In my home we can buy clothes like this. Not new but good brand. at the ukay ukay shop. I telling maam that these clothes she give me is like I buying free clothes from ukay. Maam is getting confuse. She saying no Sally these clothes not from ukay they are from Dubai. I am then explaining ukay to maam. I tell her maam at ukay ukay shop you can buy all real brand clothes. all so very cheap. Not copy brand like you buy at karama.

Ukay clothes is real brand. only they are not new. Just like maam clothes. Real brand but not new.

But now I think I not needing to go to ukay ukay. Maybe even my family not needing ukay ukay shop. Because my maam is like my own ukay ukay shop. For free.

BAKIT KAYA HINDI NA LANG GINAMIT NG TAONG ITO ANG SARILI NYANG LAHI PARA GUMAWA NG PANGALAN SA LARANGAN NG PAGSULAT. AYON SA GINAWANG PANAYAM UKOL SA LATHALANG ITO NAIS NYANG IPABATID SA LAHAT KUNG ANO ANG NARARANASAN NG LAHAT NG MGA MANGGAGAWA SA IBANG BANSA.PERO NGUNIT SA AKING PANANAW NAGING KATATAWANAN ANG MGA FILIPINO AYON NA RIN SA KANYANG URI NG PAGSULAT. WALA NAMAN MASAMA KUNG NAIS NYANG MAKATULONG MAPABATID NGUNIT KAYLANGAN BA TALAGANG GAMITIN ANG MGA KATULONG NA PINAY? PWEDE NAMAN ILAGAY NG MAAYOS ANG KAYANG LAHI BILANG PANGUNAHING TAUHAN AT ILAGAY ANG SANGGAP NA NAIS NYANG IPABATID SA MGA PAMBABASA. KURO KURO LANG PO. :)

to Anonymous July 31, tutal ikaw ang unang nakaisip niyan, bat kaya di na lang ikaw ang gumawa? May konsepto si Sally na ibang-iba sa konsepto mo. Accept that!
