“Tell me your nasuya (envious) without telling me your nasuya ” Those were the words that kept on repeating in my head as I was in this situation. haaaaaalp!!!!!😨
My sister and I were dining at Sbarro in SM Cebu, and as we finished eating, she noticed a family with two kids, and one kid holding a balloon. As she scrutinized the sight, she realized it was not a balloon but cotton candy with a design of a head of a cartoon character. She tapped me and pointed at what she saw. And I mumbled my amazement, “How cute and adorable! I MUST GET ONE.“
I MUST GET ONE!
Honestly, my tummy was already satiated with the pasta and pizza we savored in Sbarro; but when I saw the cotton candy, I thought that my belly has still space for diabetic sweets, ha-ha 😂! (What I hate about getting old is being conscious of what I feed my body, ha-ha 😂! Ugh, I hate adulting, ha-ha 😂, lol!) But the inner child in me wanted this stuff not minding the sugar but just the serotonin booster it gives (well at least my mental health is restored, charowt lang). I think my last consumed cotton candy was during my elementary days, about a score ago. Yep, I DEFINITELY NEED TO BUY ONE!
Yep, I DEFINITELY NEED TO BUY ONE!
Several people, kids and adults alike, ordered and waited for their cotton candy. In my case, while waiting, I had the chance to witness and take snaps and videos of the process where this colored grainy sugar was put in a machine in which the granules were transformed into fine cotton strings which were then spun in a stick. When the desired size was achieved, the seller then worked on his craft like magic by beautifully and adorably creating a head of a cartoon character or of an animal out of the cotton puffs. The finished product was really cool to look at. I was enthralled with what I witnessed especially when the seller handed the cotton candy to the kids. They were all smiles as they proudly held on to the sweet cloud which seemed like a trophy for them. I JUST COULDN’T CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT TO HAVE ONE.

During my childhood days, I used to buy cotton candy outside my school in the province. Cotton candies were sold as street food and I think selling them on the streets continues up to this day. The price of a stick of cotton candy before was like two to five Pesos. At present, just like here in SM Cebu cotton candies have modernized and have been made creatively with cute designs that cost 100 Pesos each while those without designs cost 50 Pesos each. AND I FINALLY GOT ONE. TAN DA DA DAN DAN. I GOT THE PIG ONE!
I FINALLY GOT ONE. TAN DA DA DAN DAN. I GOT THE PIG ONE!
AT LAST, HAPPY HORMONES FILLING UP MY SOUL!
Anyhoo, as I was scrolling Lazada, the algorithm is really creepy lol, this popped up in my feed of searches, a cotton candy maker machine. I just love the color and its “retro-ish” design. And also I love the idea that one can make a cotton candy at home! And besides, this is perfect when the neighborhood has plenty of kids and I think it’s perfect to have a small business chereeet! So hmmmm I THINK I AM GONNA PROBABLY BUY THIS ONE?
