Oh my Papa!

How are you planning to spend Father's Day this year? I am not sure as well. You see my dad met an accident just last week and he is still recovering from it (can't show you a picture because he does look terrible but in case you have a vivid imagination, think about a panda and then look at his eyes, that's what my dad looks like right now).

Just to give you a picture of what my dad looks like (photo grabbed from
However, if we were to spend Father's Day, we would definitely be having a feast! My dad loves to eat and he does really have a big appetite. He actually does not say 'no' to any type of food at all (unfortunately, I am not that adventurous).

Luckily, my online viewers in the World Wide Web, SM Supermalls have something in store for dads out there. If your pop is just like mine, a Foodie Dad well, from June 17 to 19, you can surprise your dad by taking him to a culinary journey within the walls of any SM Supermalls. There will be a wide variety of restaurants and food stops that will offer family packages and special treat to the man of the house on his special day.

If your dad is a beer enthusiast, World Brews will be the best place for him. This is where premium beers and liquors from around the world will be available. Enjoy the vast selection of food at the SM Foodcourt while your dad enjoys the discounted brewskies that various establishments have on offer!

Now, if you're dad is a die-hard Fast and the Furious fan, he can have a chance to view the cars in the City Motor Show in the SM Supermalls. Fast cars, vintage automobiles and concept cars will be part of the showcase.

For dads who are into gadgets better known as Techie Dads, they will have a chance to win cool prizes by posting their funniest #DadJokes and #DadQuotes. 

For every kind of Dad, there's a perfect activity for the whole family to enjoy and remember for a long time afterwards. Because this June, it’s all about Dad this Father’s Day at SM Supermalls!

With all these treats, my dad and I will try to see if he can go out with his sunglasses on. LOL! 

Happy Father's Day Pa! My favorite photo of us

What's in your Kikay Kit?

I have been seeing a lot of Facebook articles and Instagram feeds of friends about what's in their beauty kits. I had to stop and ask myself, do I have one?

If my memory serves me right, I did get curious about astringents, lipsticks and blush on when I was in my tweens. Unfortunately for me, the internet was not a sensation just yet. We did not have all these YouTube videos giving you instructions on how you can have a "barely there" make-up or how to do those cat-like eye liners (I still can't perfect mine. Bummer).

Eventually, life went on and I got stuck with just using a pressed powder and lipstick. Lucky for me, I did not have any acne breakouts! It is convenient for me because I am always, always late for meetings even on coffee dates! So not having to worry if I am made up or not is not really a big deal for me.

Though when there are special events, like when my boss decided to get married, I usually go to a salon to have everything done - my hair and make-up. Easy peasy. *giggle*

I looked through my stuff and this is what I have in my beauty kit (or also known as kikay kit). My current fave, Maybelline White Superfresh Powder.

I have been using this for quite some time now. I saw this in one of the TV commercials and I think it was on an introductory price (Php 299). I like the fact that it does not make my face look oily after a few hours. 


It was extremely hot that night but no signs of me being oily teehee
Next item on my list is Happy Skin's crayon lippie.

This lippie really is a lip saver! Looking at the photo, it looks pale but when I have it on me, I think it blends well with my lips (just go back to proof photo, I was using the same lip crayon there). 

When I was still in Dubai, I would use a lip and cheek tint to serve as a blush on but now, since it's hot and humid here, I do not need to apply it. 

Oh! Lastly, this is my go-to scent.

This was actually a surprise for me. I knew Avon was selling perfumes and all but I did not expect to like their scent. I also do get a lot of compliment with this scent. Even my mom was surprised to know that the perfume I was using is from Avon. I think Zalora do have a whole page dedicated for Avon products. Click here to shop for Avon at ZALORA.

That is what's in my kikay kit. Surprised? Well, I don't really like bringing big bags so I try to minimise what's in my bag and just bring stuff that I really, really need. 

How about you? What's in your kikay kit? 

Hope you can write a post about it too so that I can see what's in your kit :)
