Whenever anyone I'm talking to finds out that I came from the Philippines, I am invariably asked: "So, is it true that Imelda Marcos had a lot of shoes?"
And I say with an arched eyebrow: "Yep, it's true; and so?"
Well, I have this illusion that I have at least as many pairs of shoes that Imelda Marcos had (has?) although I keep them in mere shoe racks unlike Imelda who, when she was First Lady of the Philippines, kept her shoe collection in a special air-conditioned "shoe room" below her bedroom.
Filipino women love shoes...and dresses....and well...everything else that go with them.
But we also love making fun of ourselves and our predilections.
So when I saw this poster about New Yorkers.....
I thought I'd make and share this.....
