Nung bata ako, sa tuwing maga-abay/flower girl ako o kaya sasagala, isa lang ang ayaw kong ilalagay sa mukha ko – lipstick. Ewan ko ba, basta parang hindi kasi ako makapagsalita o makakain kapag naka-lipstick ako. Laging naka-half open ung bibig ko dahil hindi ko gusto ko pakiramdam kapag nagdidikit mga labi ko. Kaya naman un din ang unang-una kong tinatanggal kapag tapos na ang picturan. Sa wakas, magiging normal na ulit.

Un ung naisip ko kaninang umaga habang naglalagay ng lipstick na ako mismo ang pumili at bumili. Di ko inakalang mahihilig ako sa mga pambabaeng gamit. Maarte na din ako sa buhok ko, at may makeup kit na din. Kita mo nga naman eh no. Nagbabago talaga ang hilig at gusto ng mga tao. Siguro, malaking bagay din ung gusto ko kasi ginagawa ko, kumpara noon na sapilitan, dapat maglipstick dahil kailangan.

May tatlong lipstick ako. Mula sa lipstain, nagupgrade na ako sa totoong lipstick. Mas gusto ko ung dark red kesa sa pinkish ang kulay. Ngayon ko lang din nalaman na kailangan pala ng lip liner, para may pangayos kung sakaling lagpas ang pagkakalagay ng lipstick. Nakakapagsalita at nakakakain pa din naman ako. Un nga lang, stain kung saan-saan. Kelangan ko atang bumili nung no stain na lipstick. Makapagmall nga mamaya.
