We were lucky enough to have a free ticket for the Bratz World Tour 2008. How did we get this? Last month, we went to a toy convention in Makati, and Zoe got to see his Ninong there. (Thanks, Mike!) He gave Zoe money to buy some toys. Since another relative gave her money the other week, we just add them up to be able to buy one Bratz doll. Zoe’s been begging us to buy her one since she saw her cousin’s Bratz doll… and we found ourselves inside Toy Kingdom looking at those dolls. Personally, I don’t like them because of their pouty lips and the head is so unproportioned! But my daughter wants to have one (this is her first, by the way), so we bought her a Cloe doll from the Costume Party series. We got a free ticket for the Bratz World Tour when we paid for the doll.
So, that’s how we got Zoe’s ticket. Then, December 6 comes, and Zoe’s just too excited to get to SM Mall of Asia. Even if it’s time for her nap, she tried so hard to stay awake. When we get there, we’re given a number for the hair and make up part, so we have to wait for a while. She played with the available dolls in the play area to avoid boredom while waiting. When our number was called, she was so eager to have her hair and make up done that I didn’t have to convince her to sit there. She kept on looking at the mirror while the stylist works her magic on her. After the hair and make up part, we went to look for a costume for the pictorial. Most of the clothes are black, white, and dark pink. Just by looking at their colors and sizes, I can tell that they won’t look good at Zoe. Fortunately, a girl who just had her picture taken passed by, and then I saw the perfect outfit for Zoe! A golden dress for a goddess! After looking for a dress for quite a while, we finally saw the outfit that would really look good on her (in terms of size and color). So, Zoe tried it on and it looked so fantastic on her! The hair and make up is done, the perfect costume is found, now it’s time for the pictorial. As she walked on the stage, I could tell that she’s too sleepy to do this picture taking. I asked her to smile, but she did this when the photographer has taken her picture already. As a result, her printed photo shows a girl who’s not so happy with her looks. (It’s as if her mommy forced her to do it!) Luckily, I was able to take some photos using my camera right before she got very sleepy. I was also able to take one photo of her on stage, but it’s quite blurry (from excessive shaking, I guess). I edited two of her photos, and I came up with the photo above.
