I wish I can be 6 again.

Even when I was still a young girl, I have already shown preference for bright-colored outfits. My mom used to dress me in lots of yellow and pink clothes, and even when I was in school uniform she made sure my hair is decorated with colorful clips or scrunchies. One of my favorite childhood memories involves me and my mom customizing one of my Barbies' faux leather pink dress with sequins, beads and colorful glue. Oh man, what I'd give to experience that again *cue wistful 90s theme*.

It was a fun trip down a yellow-bricked memory lane for me when I went to the SM KIDS Toon Fest event held at the Makati Shangri-la Hotel last Wednesday!


My camera gave up [for good] on me that day so I don't have photos of the yummy centerpieces or the delicious dessert buffet, but thanks to Paul I can show you some photos of the super adorable kids who walked the ramp wearing the latest finds from SM KIDS!

SM Toonfest has come up with an exciting new contest open for boys and girls aged 2 - 14 years old: the search for the K-Pop Rising Superstar! To join, all you have to do is garb your kid (or sibling, nephew, or niece) with SM KIDS apparel and take a video of him or her (or them!) singing and dancing to popular K-Pop tunes! Visit the SM Toon Fest K-Pop Rising Star's official website for the complete mechanics :)

If only they can let 26 year olds join, I think I can rock that contest haha. I was even able to choose some clothes from SM KIDS' catalog that I think won't elicit weird stares from other people: 

So cute! I wish SM has them in my size ;D
Oh, what I'd give to be 6 again *_*

Special thanks to SM and ARC PR for inviting me.
