Last Thursday, I wrote about this mystery woman we saw in Greenhills which jibed with what I read in two of the leading blogs, byahilo and chuvaness.com. As I had suspected, she’s a real character and her true name is Barbara Cruz.
According to Barbara’s close friend, “she’s real, all right. We’ve known her for some time, but she’s always looked that way no matter how hard we’ve tried to convince her to go with the modern times. She is afraid of change, and insists on clinging to tradition. Her appearance reflects her old-fashioned habits.”
A few weeks after the Barbara sightings, it seems she’s caught the interest of leading depilatory brand Veet which has launched a promo aptly titled Catch and Shoot Barbara. A gadget freak like me would like to join this contest, if only because the top prize at stake is a Macbook Pro, an iPhone 3GS and other exciting prizes. 😀
The mechanics are vedy simple: watch out for Barbara in malls, bars, schools, and other places around the metro! Take her photo and upload it to the contest website, for a chance to win the Macbook Pro and other cool gadgets in the weekly raffle draws and grand draw.
As our first lead, Barbara’s friend said Barbara will be spending a day by the bay this week to watch the Paramore concert, so make sure you take a picture of her there!
