Sheer Fear

Eldest Presidential Daughter was having a fitting with Talented Designer in her bedroom at the Malacanang Palace in the 1970s…

The First Lady peered into the room and saw her daughter fitting a beautiful gown by Talented Designer.

“O, Mommy, ano’ng tingin mo rito?” [ “Oh, Mommy, how do you like it?” ]  asked Eldest Presidential Daughter.

“Maganda, maganda.” [ “Nice, nice.” ]  replied the First Lady, who already had a practiced eye for fabric, cut, silhouette, and details.  She appreciated the beautiful gown. 

She turned to Talented Designer and asked:  “O, kailan mo ako igagawa ng gown???”  [ “Oh, when will you create a gown for me???” ]

“Ikararangal ko po, Ma’am!!!”  [ “It would be my honor, Ma’am!!!” ]  replied Talented Designer enthusiastically. 

“O sige, gawin mo na.  Ipadala mo na bukas ng maaga para masuot ko na.”  [ “Alright, make it already.  Send it early tomorrow morning so I can wear it already.” ]  commanded the First Lady in her charming, and alarming, manner.  

It was already six in the evening… 

Out of Sheer Fear, Talented Designer and his staff, like the fairy tale elves, worked all night to design, cut, embellish, and sew the gown.  Of course, it turned out beautifully.  Out of Sheer Fear.

The instant but exquisitely beautiful gown was already at the Malacanang Palace by 6:00 a.m..  And true to her word, The First Lady wore his gown that day.

The First Lady liked the gown.  She made it known that she wanted more…

Eldest Presidential Daughter called her friend, Talented Designer.  She asked him:  “Bakit hindi ka na pumupunta rito sa bahay???” [ “Why don’t you come here to the Palace anymore???” ]

“AYAW KO NA!!!”  [ “NO WAY!!!” ] refused Talented Designer.  Out of Sheer Fear.  Lest he be commanded to do overnight gowns again!!!

Bwahahahahah!!!   😛   😛   😛

    Thank you for finding your way here.

    What we have in this blog is “moderation,” not “censorship.” Often we get comments that, although terribly interesting, could land us in the courtroom. That would ruin all the fun we’re having, right? So I make sure that while we make minor pricks, there are no injurious stabs. Then we can all go yacking ’til “thy kingdom come”!!!

    I had been reading your blog and it’s quite entertaining as well as educational. In a sense, I learned things during the so-called “Bagong Lipunan.”

    Let me share something,

    I was flicking through these pixes and came across Madame Imelda’s pix in the account of DaphneOP:

    Couldn’t be P*toy or Joe. They both relished making gowns for IRM. Could it be Gang or Aug*ie?

    It’s a good thing the former FL did not apply shears to the gown ( think mad Bette Davis-Baby Jane ) had she disapproved of it. As u say, T – BWAAHHHHHH!

    Speaking of the 70s, I just came across this on You Tube.

    This is Regal Films’ Temptation Island circa 1978 or 1979 (or thereabouts).

    I just had to share this with the you guys. Ha ha! The best highlights of what must be the worst Filipino film ever, all in 9 minutes. Enjoy!

    Plus various other hilarious scenes from the same movie:

    I nearly died laughing my ass off!
