Beauty & Fashion Kap & Me Others

Akala mo Mahirap, Yun pala Kuripot.

Kap has this funny shirt by THE TSHIRT PROJECT/SPOOFS that says “Akala mo Mahirap, Yun pala Kuripot“. He loves sassy & funny statement tees, to my chagrin. This particular shirt fits him to a T! ;)

the-tshirt-project-01

Kap is really very very simple. We have several designer his & hers watches. Mine are super gasgas na because of wear & tear. Most of which have been inherited by the girls already. Meanwhile, his look spanking new because he never wears them. As in walang gasgas. He has a closet full of branded shirts, shorts, and pants. But he opts to wear the  cheaper ones so he doesn’t smudge them with grease & mud in his line of work.

He is not one to show off. And he doesn’t need much to keep him happy. Even in my events. Magrereklamo yan. Sweetheart, lalabas na naman ba tayo? Hindi na tayo napakali sa bahay. To which I would reply “But Honey, aren’t you happy we get to go to these nice places? Sagot nya: Makakabawas ba sa pagkatao natin kung hindi tayo kakain diyan? Or “pwede naman tayong mabuhay ng wala yan“. His motto in life really is less is more. And I am apathetic! :P #SorryNotSorry

One time I was scandalized when his tennis buddy remarked, Mare, buti pa yang wallet mo, mas mahal pa sa kotse ng asawa mo (hayz, Kap also dabbles in buy & sell so he can be using a battered old car one time & a flashy one the next). The friend said it in jest, but I really felt bad for my Kap. Another time, they jokingly asked me to buy him a more manly water jug because apparently, he was using our daughter’s old Barbie jug kasi sayang daw at ayos pa naman. Gah! (I have since then replaced the controversial jug!)

My Kap is not pakitang tao. What you see is what you get. He can be friends with the richest man, but he is also buddies with his men & staff. He is really a Mr. Nice Guy. <3

Feeling nila inaapi ko naman sobra si Kap my Kap. But really, he is the one who wants to live simply. For all intents & purposes, he is the head of the family. Siya ang nagpapakain ss amin, not me. It’s a good thing that we were able to dispose of our scooter. He used to ride that going to the tennis court in our village with his heavy tennis bag backpacked as he rode merrily along, honking happily. Para lang McDo delivery ang peg nya coz his scooter was painted red & yellow, LOL. Mas tipid daw sa gas was his answer when I asked him why he preferred using the scooter over our cars parked outside.

Why am I telling you this? Well, because a rant is coming! ;P A couple of days ago, I called him to ask his whereabouts because it was way past lunchtime. As you know, Kap has several satellite businesses. Hindi naman kalakihan, but madami-dami rin syang pinagkakaabalahan. One is this car shop/paint shop. Actually hobby lang nya yan, it’s not our main source of income.

A lady customer was hassling him. Kesyo pinalitan daw yung seatbelt ng kotse nya & rear mirror. At marami pang iba. Of course Kap vehemently denied it & there was a discussion that according to him didn’t end well. To cut the story short, he just didn’t charge her for the many works done on her more-than-10-year-old car as good faith on his part. That was over 8k dapat! Anyway, when he got home, he left his celphone on the table. And as is my usual custom, I made kalikot it (fine, I use his IG account to like all my posts hehe), then I read a thread by this friggin lady customer.

Buti nasisikmura mo palamunin yang pamilya mo sa panloloko mo sa akin!”

Hindi ko babayaran yang pagawa ng kotse ko magnanakaw ka” and a lot more that I couldn’t stomach.

the-tshirt-project-03

Omg. Nagdilim ang paningin ko. Gusto nyang tawagan ko si Anne Curtis to buy her & her friends? Who is this crazy AF woman named TESS talking to my husband this way! I was going to call her to give her a piece of my mind (in straight english!) & to tell her to go to hell when Kap suddenly came out from the shower & pacified me.

Does she think we’d get rich over her silly seatbelt? Manloloko nalang kami di sa big time na. Bakit sa bulok na CRV pa nya! And she doesn’t know us to accuse Kap of feeding his family from screwing people over. Please, Kap is the straightest person I know! @_@

IMG_0019

You know, not so long ago. Not a month has passed even, this brand new red Ford Ranger bumped us from behind as we were on our way to attend an event in SOLAIRE. Fortunately for us, our CRV was tough, walang gasgas whereas the bumper of the Ford Ranger was basag talaga. The kind couple offered to give us 2k just for the hoolabaloo, but Kap declined the money. Kasi hindi siya balahurang tao. Aabutin ko na nga sana, LELS. The police was there & he didn’t even file a complaint! Ganyan sya ka-disente & just waved off the couple with a smile. Bakit daw nya kukunin yung pera eh wala naman gasgas at mas lugi pa daw sila.

I was really really upset for the longest time (obviously up to now) & gusto ko talagang huntingin at sabunutan. But Kap is really the level-headed one in our relationship. Huwag ko na daw patulan. To be the bigger person. The thing is, I don’t like it when Kap is maligned because they think he is basta-basta lang.

the-tshirt-project-04

What they see is a smiling Kap in his simple everyday get-up with his simple seiko watch & silly statement tees. Oftentimes scraggly – but he works in a carshop & a gasoline station. Alangan naming naka-suit sya. What they don’t know is we own the lots where our businesses are. And we have not one but several businesses to keep us afloat kahit na hindi Henry Sy levelz. We live in a premiere village paid in cash with several assets to our name. Para lang sa lecheng seatbelt manloloko kami ng tao? I was really fuming.

Eto rin naman kasing si Kap. He is so grounded. Even with telemarketers he is always so nice & patient kaya humahaba ang usapan. Ako yan, a resounding NO agad, tapos ang usapan.

Moral lesson of the story is you really are what you wear. If you want repect, magsuot ng damit na maayos. How will anyone take you seriously naman pag ganito ang suot mo diba!

So ngayon, ako na ang wardrobe consultant ni Kap. Sunugin ko talaga lahat ng tshirt nya na mukhang yagit! Kaya TESS, nasaan ka man, ito ang para sayo! Pwede ba, hindi kami naghihirap. Makunat lang!

the-tshirt-project-07

Never return. Malilintikan ka sa akin. Pramis yan.

    Buti nga si Kap simpleng tao lang kahit may sinasabi naman talaga sa lipunan. Hindi tulad ng iba na kuntodo porma puro yabang lang naman pala…

    Wag nyo na po huntingin at ibang level nya… Hehehe… Baka matuwa pa yun pag pinatulan nyo at singilin ka pa ng moral damages makalamang lang. Hehehe…

    This post evoked a lot of emotions in me:
    1. first part – LMAO
    2. second part – I KNOW YOU KNOW

    I perfectly understand how you felt after you read HER text messages. A similar case happened to me a few weeks ago at talagang gusto ko igapos ang sarili ko sa silya para hindi ako lumabas at sabunutan ang customer while I hear her talak and sumpa sa staff because she parked her car UNLOCKED inside our site at nawala ang bag niya. Kasalanan ko ‘teh?

    I admire KAP for doing what he did. God sees everything. Have a blessed and fun SUNDAY, Binondo GURL! xoxo

    Hi Jane!
    Wow! Grabe, kumulo ang dugo ko!! :-{ Kung maka accuse at maka panlait naman si TESS Bruha , wagas! Sana lang andun ka, sigurado wala na syang buhok ngayon! Haynako! Imbyerna!
    My husband has very casual clothes at ayaw nya ng may relo. He wears his watch only when we’re traveling. He’s a mechanic and works for a Federal Railroad company in the U.S. , he’s a very simple guy at super bait. ;-)
    Please tell Kap , minsan papalag rin sya bec. that particular person is not only minamaliit ang pagka tao nya and his family, but most importanly his parents are being disrespected too. His Parents who loved and nurtured him, sent him to school at nag hirap for him.
    I’m sure you know what I meant.
    Take care.

    Mommy Jane!!!! Ano beh! I can feel the emotions. Sabihin mo lang ako at resbakan natin yang si Tess in straight english hanggang dumugo ilong nya. May customer talaga na abusado.

    Kidding aside, i have so much respect for Kap. He is really living a Christ-like attitude which is worth emulating. He is like Jay in so many ways – very family oriented, simple, humble, always considerate of others but don’t you wish na sana minsan lumaban din sila . i remember one time when my car was bumped by another car just outside our village and i called him to my rescue. But instead of getting something kahit participation fee, waley! Bayaan na lang daw kasi driver lang daw. Kawawa daw family. Hays! Mali talaga ang pagtawag ko sa kanya at that point. I should have fought my own battle. Hehehe

    GRABE AUNTIE JANE P R E A C H HAII NAKO IN TODAY’S SOCIETY PEOPLE REALLY GAUGE YOUR VALUE BASED ON WHAT YOU WEAR. That’s the reality *sigh :( That woman was way out of line, and sometimes you really have to put people in their place, so I understand your frustrations. The end part tho haha where you said you’re Uncle Kap’s stylist now was so funny, gow auntie i-career mo na hehe~ and those shirts were hilarious! Winner yung Tag Hirap since birth!!! I see Uncle Kap as a very noble man and you have a very wonderful family. Her allegations are utterly ridiculous! Anyways, just continue to enjoy life ng bonggang bongga and touch people’s lives with your kindness. That’ll show her and perhaps make her reflect upon her actions.
