Back in college, I was suffering from acne. Actually, that's an exaggeration. I've had mild pimples, zits, if you will, not really huge ones, but pimples nonetheless. But suffer, I did. Alam nyo ginawa ko? Aside from the usual astringent, soaps, and Panoxyl and tretinoin creams, I went to St. Clare in Katipunan, brought eggs, and wrote a short letter requesting for prayers for my PIMPLES. Hahahahahaha! I don't remember the text of my letter, but it must have been something like this:
Dear Sisters of St. Clare,
Please, please, please pray for me that I will have clear skin. Thank you so much.
The nuns must have been like, "Mga sisters, yes, merong may cancer, may leukemia, may depression, may nag-re-request ng prayers para pumasa ng board exam, may gutom sa mundo, at may mga katiwalian sa lipunan na dapat nating ipagdasal, and heto ang isang ito -- ang dasal nya ay kuminis ang kanyang balat."
*SWOOSH* TOSSES REQUEST LETTER TO THE TRASH BIN.
Coincidentally, I received a free trial pack of Belo's AcnePro line. I must say, it was beautifully packaged, as it should always be -- I mean, if you're marketing a beauty product, the product itself must be beautiful. Sa totoo lang, nakakawalang gana i-try yung mga products na ang balot ay parang ginawa lang sa backyard. Thank you, Dra. Belo. *Feeling close*
|Eto na siguro ang sagot sa dasal ko...LOL!|
