As promised, I travelled to the far away kingdom of SM Megamall to go to the Swatch store nearest my place of work. I sneaked pass Pao, rode the FX, walked from Building A to Building B, and questioned about 3 security guards before finally arriving at the place where they keep holy grail...
I could stare at this window display all day. (Sigh)
Unfortunately, it took me just minutes of looking around the store to realize that these watches are dang crappy. They're fitted with cheap plastic straps and have quartz movements from nowhereland. Nyachacha. Even my high school self would not be caught dead wearing these.
I thought that Swatch watches sold for about P10,000 ++. I learned on my trip that some go for as low as P3,800++. Even when I buy myself one at the latter price, I swear that thing will never see the light of day on my wrist. So it all boils down to this question: Am I willing to "donate" P3,800++ of my heard-earned money to further John Lloyd Cruz' endorsement prowess?
After serious deliberation, I realize, I can't. Sorry, Lloydie. May hangganan ang pag-ibig, at ito na yun. Haha
