Buying ukay-ukay is OK

Dear Friend:
This afternoon, while i am about to bet the lotto, i came across an ukay-ukay store, this ukay-ukay, in the Philippines is second hand clothes, shoes, anything second hand but still good. Ukay-ukay is sold at bargain prices yet these are imported products. Shortpants like maong, khaki, is sold at P20.00 to P30.00, bed covers family size at P180 to 400.00 depending on the aged and appearance and textures. Many are interested to buy ukay-ukay because these are still good. I saw also ukay-ukay appliances like TVs, stereo cassettes, washing machines, refs, etc. To tell you my TV set at home is ukay-ukay. I bought it at P1,800 yet, if it is brand new it cost P15,000.00. So, I made an ukay-ukay (select) and was able to select 3 shorts for P75.00, these are still good, they store watch ask me to have them wash before using as these are dusty and unwashed. During my ukay-ukay, here is a lady who entertained me named Riza, she is maculit that she was able to convince me to buy the 3 shorts, so I bought the 3 shorts. we talk and talk until it rains that I was not able to bet the lotto, and also brown out here, no on-line lotto outlet. This saleslady, her name was Riza, asked me to buy a bed cover, I like the bed cover it cost P180.00, I made some tawad if it is OK at P100.00 yet she refused, so sorry hindi ko na buy ang bed sheets. I went home and proud to show my ukay-ukay shorts to my friends. What am I saying is, for me it is OK to buy ukay-ukay specially if konte lang pera-money. Sayang I missed the lotto tonite, but its OK, next time na lang.
By the way friends, Thank You for your prayers for little girl Carmel, I know God is good and will help Carmel recover early. Me still not able to buy the celfone that I promised to her, wait lang muna sya. till next . . . hear from you friends.. . . Thank you again. . .
