MANILA, Philippines — Did Cinderella take a chance, head to Baguio, and dance the night away – only to find her shoe left behind the next day?
A shoe was left on the premises of the Baguio City government’s Public Order and Safety Division (POSD) on Monday, January 23, and local authorities are looking for its owner.
The POSD surmised that the size 38, brand-new left wedge sandal could have accidentally fallen from the owner’s bag. The owner, it noted, might already be wondering where it went.
“We’re looking for the owner of this brand new pairless wedge sandal (left pair) that may have fallen off someone’s bag … sometime after the clock struck 12,” POSD-Baguio City wrote on its Facebook page Thursday, January 26.
The POSD said the claimant should present the right wedge sandal.
“You may bring your Prince Charming, who could put the sandal on you… if it fits!” it added.
Social media users could not help but speculate about the origin and owner of the shoe.
“Plot twist: the owner of that shoe is the ambulant vendor whose goods were confiscated,” quipped a social media user.
“It came from an ukay-ukay,” guessed another user in Filipino.
Instead of a prince charming, the owner of the shoe should marry the office staff who found it, according to some social media commenters.
“Cinderella should marry the POSD finder,” said the netizen.
“The POSD personnel who found it should be the one to put on the sandal for her…” another said.
