This conversation was originally in Chinese, and Filipino (only for the word maarte/arte) but I decided to write an English translation instead.
Me: I want to buy candles. Do you think they sell it here?
Him: What kind of candles? Small white ones?
Me: No, I want to buy scented candles because I want to be all “fancy” (read: maarte). Do you not want to support my “quirks” (read: kaartehan)?
Him: HAHAHA it’s not that I don’t wanna support you, it’s just that I don’t think they sell those “fancy” (read: maarte) things here. Maybe we should go to another store.
:)) Just wanted to write this down to remember. I want to buy scented candles because I’ve seen a lot of YouTubers burning scented candles and saying that it smells good and it’s relaxing and all that. My sister also burns scented candles and incense sticks, as far as I know. Therefore, I want to try it out for myself and see how it is. Hee.
