Where to buy Linggo ng Wika costumes?
This month is the celebration of Linggo ng Wika (National Language Week). This will be my son’s first time to join this kind of event. According to WikiPilipinas, this event highlights the significance of the Filipinos’ national language, Filipino. Each year, educational institutions such as schools, universities and government agencies celebrate this event through various activities such as essay writing contests, exhibits, parades and other contest showcasing the use of the Filipino language.
At my son’s school, we were advised to prepare a Linggo ng Wika costume for our kids. I am glad that they decided to make the costume uniform and gave us a copy of what it looks like. We were given a choice to buy the complete set at school, but I opted to buy it myself since I know lots of places that sells Linggo ng Wika costumes.
I first visited the Alabang Market, a set of the costume for boys and girls was around P 355.00 (this is based on my son’s size for the boys). It is cheaper if the kid is smaller. Since my son’s therapy center is at Manila, we decided to drop by at Paco Market and checked the price of the costumes, and I am not surprised that it is way cheaper there compared to Alabang. A set cost P300 for both girls and boys. But the frugality in me is whispering and telling me to check Baclaran also. So I decided to drop by and checked the prices of Linggo ng Wika costumes there. Unfortunately, the Baclaran price is more expensive by P20 than those in Paco Market.
