What’s in your kikay kit?…She’s such a kikay!…I have lots of kikay accessories here….etc. Kikay is such a famous word among the Filipinos especially the girls. It’s a slang word for sassy(stylish) and was more popularized by the song Sayaw Kikay (La la la la la… mahilig mag pa cute, aye! Kikay!). Now the question is…am I kikay? Well, I guess I am and I believe every individual has a certain “kikay-ness” in her/him (you read it right, including the male species).
Well, I’m not that super duper kikay but just like any girls, I want to look fashionable and updated with the latest style and trend in town. I began my love affair with shoes, bags, clothes, accessories and make-ups after college when I started working. Some people don’t understand and say that it’s extravagance. Why do you have to buy all those stuff when you you can’t wear and use it all? It’s impractical! Others would comment. But for me, it’s not really about the expenses. The outcome of the “kikay in me” is the happiness I get when I look and feel good about myself. It’s not really about the nice dress or the fab shoes but the joy that I feel inside when I get to do what I want and be able to express my self.
Some pics of mine…todo na ito! Hehehe
Now that I’m a wife and a mother, I can say that I’m still a kikay but more practical now. I’m thankful that I have a husband who chose to understand and not complain about my kikayness. I’m sure he wonders why it takes me so long to prepare and get dressed and why I have to buy different accessories or bags or shoes when I still have unused stuff in the closet. My hubby knows I am happy this way.
I’m happy also that I have a daughter. Cache is my partner in crime, hehe. As my dear hubby jokingly said, “Nagmana talaga sa iyong kaartehan ang iyong anak.”
My precious little Google Cache (let my husband explain her name, hehe)
