Because of the virus, you can no longer try on or fit clothes at the stores. Buy them first, go home, try them on and if they don’t fit you can always return them by either going back to the store or by dropping off the items at Fedex or UPS stores.
Oyen bought some clothes that looked big on her so she wrapped them up and asked me to drop the package off at the nearest Fedex store inside Walgreens. I did just that, and from there I went to UPS to ship a package.
Instead of going straight home, I went to the store selling everything Mexican. I thought it was still closed but I was so glad the door was unlocked. There were two young children playing inside the store, presumably the grandchildren of the owners.
I was the only customer.
I spent some 5 to 10 minutes looking for a dress with fewer colors, less embroidery, and generally simpler. None.
I settled for these two, the simplest of them all.
The price was $45 each. I offered $80 total for both, all in. The male owner agreed. The wife remembered I had bought a dress from them before, pre-covid.
I find Mexican people in general as kind, honest, respectful, and very hardworking. We share the same faith in God and dedication to our family. They also send money to their families in Mexico. They have many traits that are similar to us Filipinos. Viva Mejico!
