The traveling exhibit Portraits Of Shoes, Stories Of Feet just opened at the Yuchengco Museum at the RCBC Plaza on Ayala. Organized by the museum and Alliance Francaise, the show features shoes from the 18th to the 21st centuries, from peasant footwear to designer shoes to shoes as art. It’s a motley assortmentâ€”too few historical shoes, but some interesting designs that probably won’t be seen on human feet outside of a fashion show or a sex shop. There’s a whole section of beautiful bakya.

Fishy Fishy Fishy. This would’ve solved my sister’s problem finding someone to feed her pet goldfish while her family was out of town. She couldn’t leave it with me because my cats would’ve found a way to take it out of the bowl (including breaking the bowl). With these shoes, she could’ve taken Wanda everywhere she went.
