The english translation of the word kikay is someone who loves fashion and being a  girly girl.

My officemates saw me one day.  My sort of mentor just taught me how to properly put on a make-up so that I won’t look like a clown.  They weren’t supposed to see me at my workplace that time but I had to use the bathroom so I had no choice but to pass by my office.  They were surprised to see my colored face and my bangle (see pic).  It was unusual for them to see me dollied up.  I received their comments as compliments.

Then yesterday, I saw another bangle and it matched my blouse.  I bought it for only P20 (half a dollar).  The bangle also came with a ring.  I bought it and put them on.  I like how my arms look like whenever I type away on my computer wearing my bangle.

When my officemate saw me with another bangle, she commented, “I didn’t know you are kikay”.

“Yeah I am…,” I replied with a smile.

“And you’re wearing bangles now because you don’t have to wash your hand every now and then…”, she added.

She got it right.
