Comedy Relief: Art Nouveau

My close friends remember this incident well from years ago, and it makes them guffaw everytime they recall it…

Two friends were going around the exhibit…

She was one of those incredible Binondo-to-Santa Mesa Heights-to-Greenhills-to-Forbes Park phenomenal reinventions:  As a young girl, she had lived with her family in a Binondo walk-up, shopped for basics at Divisoria, and studied at the nearby Chinese school.  As a lady residing in Forbes Park and holding office in Hong Kong, she shopped for her basics in that city’s top boutiques and for her luxuries in Paris, London, and New York.  Her idea of everyday wear was “Tsah-nell” [ Chanel ].  If it wasn’t a top brand and deathly expensive, she simply didn’t want it around her.

“I jas lab Art Nubow!!!”  declared Chinese heiress.

“Perfect!!!  Art Nouveau… and Nouveau Riche… go perfectly together!!!”  rejoined her friend dryly, rolling her eyes.

    Sometimes, people gravitating around us are not real friends after all. Be wise.
