Weekend Story: Paseo de Sta. Rosa and Nuvali-Solenad with Friends

When I saw them again, I thought it was the time to get them. But when my eyes landed on a box of slim hangers made of metal but dressed in olive-colored velvet, I knew right then and there my obsession with wooden hangers has died.
