Weird is weird

rainy encounter
While waiting for a friend, i decided to look at this photo .exhibit of greenpeace regarding whale sharks in OSLOB
Then

GUy: Miss,excuse me.Ang ganda kasi ng sandals mo.Bkit ang ganda?Saan mo binili yan?
Suddenly, this guy, standing with the same height as I am and has fair complexion, approached me out of nowhere.
I was on my guard.I moved inches away,placed my left foot forward and readied my right foot to kick(if needed).
He looks harmless and soft though.STill,i managed to maintain composure just in case ganun lang talaga siya.
I checked baka my kasama siya at nadidistract lng ako.I placed my backpack in front of me.May tao like ung
bantay sa exhibit at ung saleslady sa nearby footwear stall.

(Non-verbatim )
me;(Ako iniisip ko kung tama ba sasabihin ko na sagot). Sabi ko parisian, sa SM
Sabi nya.Mahal ba yan?
Sabi ko hndi,tama lang reasonable.500
sya:fashionable ka na nyan?
me:(wrinkles forehead)hindi,bakit.
siya:tska yung salamin mo,ang ganda.bagay na bagay sayo.Binili mo ba yan?
me:oo
sya:ah.binili mo?di mo ninakaw?
me:binili ko.
(looking at the photograph before me)
(pause)tapos ka na?
sya: may bibilhin kasi ako para sa girlfriend ko.ano suggestion mo?
me:Tas sabi ko..ayan bumili ka lang.sabi ko im not after the brand, more of the functionality.

siya: ay ok.sorry kung awkward.
me: yun nga yung approach:)and you came out of nowhere.

me:hindi eh,sorry
siya: (walks back then, approaches again)sorry,i did not personally say goodbye to you.
me:ok.bye
siya: goodbye.see you later.

____end of conversation____
I am thinking about three scenarios about this.
a.budol gang/modus
b. social experiment
c. psych patient
d. just a human, trying to be friendly and nice.

tell me your thoughts or what will you do if you are in the same situation:))
Let us see…
I have trust issues and i kind of weighed the possibilites for any negative outcomes.pero i gave him the benefit of the doubt.mejo sinaPsych ko sya.

Kung ok sya,mukhang interesting
I am not really paranoid,maybe a little, but i am just being careful. Since I had time, I still tried to be a “normal” interacting person as possible.

Reminder though: Be on guard during any interaction to strangers, especially my explanation and answers.
I am careful not to give any pertinent personal info.
