My dad, my hero

Meet the #LeFamille!

Many of my friends told me that I look a lot like my Mom. I admire her for her strength, her faith and for her love for us all, but let me tell you something about my dad, who happens to be my hero.

I grow up not having any interaction with my dad, except when he’s on vacation from his work somewhere in the middle east. you see, he is an OFW, an overseas worker who solely strives for our family. He only has time for us when he’s on vacation leave for one month (or more, depends on his contract) and for me and my siblings, it is an opportunity for us to bond with him and make him feel that we are united as one as a family.

My dad always gives me hugs when I was that little.

I’m the one that is more close to my dad. I’ve been the sole bunso (and the youngest daughter) for almost ten years before my younger brother arrived. Whenever my dad’s around, he always calls me “his princess” even until now. He always spoils me with gifts and supports my eternal love for Sailor Moon (he even bought me an official SM shirt (that still fits!) on my birthday!) even until now lol!

Me and Dad 🙂

and now that I’m currently employed, I see to it that I will give back to his love for me, by taking him to the movies, buying DVDs of his favorite movies, going on a random roadtrips (without my mom knowing it) and having our own “dates”, and giving him a random hug, just like the old times. 🙂

My dad is not getting any younger. if there’s such thing as a “fountain of youth” that makes their youth long lasting, and the only thing i know that makes everyone youthful is by taking collagen in our system.

Collagen drinks are said to be the secret for longevity and beauty of Japanese people, who are known for their smooth skin and youthful appearance. Collagen drinks are, in fact, very popular in China and South Korea.

Premium HyC 150, developed by FINE Japan Co. Ltd., is now available in the Philippines. Premium HyC 150 is unique because it is the only supplement drink that has the optimal combination of active anti-aging ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, collagen and ubiquinol.

Premium HyC 150 has other benefits that go beyond skin care and a rejuvenated, more youthful look. To maximize the benefits of collagen, one important element, hyaluronic acid, has to be present. At least 50 percent of hyaluronic acid in our body can be found in our skin.

Premium HyC 150 contains 150 mg of hyaluronic acid, the optimal dosage to replenish the body of this essential nutrient. Hyaluronic acid acts as space filler by binding to water and keeps the skin wrinkle-free. It lubricates joints, ligaments and connective tissues. It also hydrates surrounding tissue and keeps the collagen nourished and healthy.

Premium HyC 150, exclusively distributed in the Philippines by BrightRAY Enterprises, is now available at Watsons stores. For information, visit
