One of my frustrations as a teenager is Acne. I think majority of high school students experienced a moment in their lives wherein they try to find ways to get rid of pimples and acne as fast as possible. There is a myth spreading around that having pimples is a sign that one person is in love. I am not sure if they invented this just to tell the youngters that they’re going through a normal phase, but this skin problem can also ruin one’s self-esteem – whether he/she is in love or not!
Unlike most girls, I never really exerted that much effort to work on this problem. I even worked once in a medical clinic that specializes in skin problems, and my short stay in that company opened my eyes to the possibilities. I guess I am not as driven as other girls in that department. I also find it dragging at times to put lotion in my body, much to my mother’s dismay.
‘WHAT?! You have a big crush on a drag queen? That’s the weirdest statement I’ve ever heard in years!”
If a female friend of mine confessed her addiction on drag queens years ago, I’ll instantly give her a strange look. Do you have a serious problem in life that you don’t want me to know yet you can’t handle it? Tell me and I’ll listen. Let’s talk about boy bands instead.
But no. Actually, my love for drag queens started when I discovered LOGOTV’s Rupaul’s Drag Race. They’re currently airing the 5th season in the US of A and I’m proud to say that a lot of Filipino drag queens made it to the show. The fun part there is they look so pretty with the make-up and glamorous clothes, yet they look equally hot when out of drag. My Top Three favorite queens from all five seasons include Manila Luzon, Willam Belli and Ivy Winters.
Whenever I am in Dagupan City, I make it a point to visit Pretty Tipsy Nail & Waxing Salon. Nah, I am not gulping hard drinks while having my nails done (although guests can do that by special request, me thinks). I just feel that I deserve some pampering after traveling.
Right after our quick Tambobong Beach Independence Day Getaway last month, Gay and I met up at Stargreen Promenade for a girl bonding afternoon in Dagupan City’s kikay hub. With the pinkish facade and girlish interior design, customers will automatically feel extra kikay.
