Chikkaness' Summer Must Haves

Even before summer officially started I've been out to the waters as early as March especially recently in Siargao where I celebrated my birthday. Though I don't know how to swim, I still consider myself a beach person because I love the crowd and the apparel of being worn. It is a happy place where I can sip the best fruit juice or shake out there, lazy around with a good read, or simply sight-seeing and pictorials for my Instagram posts.

Check out the below list of must haves to make your summer experience a better one.

Waterproof Bag

This is the perfect gear to ensure that your essential are water-proof to keep your adventures worry free.

Water Bottle

With the scorching heat we need to keep ourselves hydrated but at the same time save mother earth by reducing consumption of plastic. This will definitely saves you money also.

White shirt

Keep it cool and clean. I don't know but wearing white makes me feel cooler.

Take care of your lips from cracks. Moisturize it with a lip balm that best suits you.

I don't want to have pictures where my eyes are not smiling because of the direct heat from the sun. Also, I look better with the sunglasses on. Hehe


I pick a sunscreen that's not too heavy and sticky on my face. Too much exposure to sun will make you look dry and old. So protect yourself.

Floral Apparel

This is the best season to wear those florals. 

Water Skin Shoes

This helped me a lot during my Siargao trip where there's just a lot of pointed rocks on the shore especially during low tide.

So there you go, my summer must haves! Good news is it's easier to get hold of them by just using the Shopee app where they offer products of top quality and at a very affordable prize.

A new group of talented kiddie performers will undergo cute transformations and bring world-class family entertainment to viewers every weekend as the newest season of “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” begins on May 5 and 6 on ABS-CBN.

This summer, ten bright Kapamilya child stars who come from different fields will pull out all the stops to transform themselves into local and international music icons.

Ready to showcase his performing prowess is “Anghel ng Masa” Marco Masa, who starred in values-oriented primetime teleseryes “Nathaniel” and “My Super D” before dabbling in comedy via “Goin’ Bulilit.”

From the same kiddie gag show comes current cast member, “Bulilit Kikay” Chun-Sa, who first appeared on television and became popular for her impersonation of Maja Salvador in “It’s Showtime’s” “Mini Me” competition.

Impersonation is also not new to “Bibong Astig” Onyok Pineda, who rose to fame when he impersonated rock icon Bamboo in “Mini Me,” before becoming a household name for his performances in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” and the movie “Ang Panday.”

“Kiddie Kontesera” Esang De Torres, meanwhile, will use her experience in singing contests, notably “The Voice Kids” and “Mini Me,” as well as her stints in famous musicals such as “Les Miserables” and “Matilda the Musical” to give herself an edge in the competition.

“Inday Wonder” Sheena Belarmino is also a singing pro who has proven her voice in many singing competitions, including “Tawag ng Tanghalan Kids,” where she was named one of the grand finalists.

“Precious Darling” Krystal Brimner can hold her own both on stage and on-cam, proving her talent when she starred in the 2016 local production of the musical “Annie” and won the Best Child Performer award at the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival for “Honor Thy Father.”

The multi-instrumentalist and former “The Voice Kids” contestant Noel Comia Jr. or “Poging Lodi” is also in a league of his own as he has already starred in several theatrical productions, won three Aliw Awards, and bagged Cinemalaya Awards’ Best Actor trophy - the youngest actor ever to have done so – for the film “Kiko Boksingero.”

The “Bigshot Trio” of online sensations Francis Concepcion, Mackie Empuerto, and Keifer Sanchez or TNT Boys are also joining the program to show they mean serious business, determined to follow up their viral vocal showdowns, more recently in “Little Big Shots UK,” with more breathtaking transformations.

All of the kiddie performers will be guided by new celebrity mentors – Jed Madela for singing and Nyoy Volante for movement – who will devise creative training techniques and incorporate them in activities such as swimming and running.

Returning to the program are host Billy Crawford and jurors Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano, Multiplatinum Singer and Songwriter Ogie Alcasid, and Megastar Sharon Cuneta, who will comment on and rank the kiddie performers’ performances.

Just like in the past seasons, the competition will pit the kiddie performers against each other but no one will be eliminated. In every episode, the kid who gets the highest number of points from the jurors will take home the cash prize, half of which will be given to their chosen charity.

Don’t miss the premiere of “Your Face Sounds Familiar Kids” on May 5 and 6 on ABS-CBN or on ABS-CBN HD (SkyCable ch 167). For program updates, like, or follow @YourFacePH on Twitter and Instagram.

Chikkaness' Top Ten Shopee Item Wishlist

Transcend Portable Hard Drive

With almost three events being attended in a day plus my travel getaways, my 64gb phone memory tends to be always full in just a day. Having this hard drive, I will not be worrying about memory space and will focus on taking pictures and videos for my blog feature stories.

Floral Shirt

Yes it's summer and this shirt is definitely in. But what I love with this style is that it becomes versatile already that it can be worn whatever season we are in. Being in floral attire also enhances my sunshine personality.

Anti-Theft Waterproof Bag

I want a slash-resistant bag. When I'm on my daily commute sometimes I get to sleep on a train and I wanted to sleep peacefully without worrying that someone might be getting somethings out of my bag already.


Being busy sometimes make my excuses valid not to do exercise or sometimes sacrifice my health. It shouldn't be and I acknowledge that. With fitbit, I can now fully monitor how my body is doing in terms of the calories burned, steps took, and even measure my sleep quality.

Seiko watch

Yes I'm a watch collector especially the automatic ones. I love the quality of Seiko watches and it can be worn on any occasion. Don't you just love it's design? It's pretty.

 This gives me flexibility and convenience on my travels. It's easy to carry around with less effort plus it can accommodate more clothes. I normally pack 6 days worth of clothes for a 2-day trip.

Snowcaps Glutathione

I love being at the beach but I don't want to get dark. That's why with Snowcaps Glutathione a few hours of sun exposure will not easily darken my skin. Beyond that though it also improves my over-all health.

Floral bedsheets

After a super tiring day, I just wanted to have a good sleep that will easily transport me to dreamland. Having these kind of bed sheets will surely help.
