Transform yourself with Schick

When I was young, I had this crazy thought that I am being raised by superheroes.

I often see my father works on wood and nails and just about anything to make a chair, stair case, dog house, pigeon cage, and the likes with the help of his utility belt.  He has tools to saw lumber, twist metals and (I hope he won’t find out that I said this) I caught him one time hammering garlic while cooking adobo.  He’s resourcefulness and love for “gadgets” is comparable to Batman.

How about my mother? Our ever loving Nanay can do just about anything--- from taking care of her children to cooking meals, from washing clothes and cleaning the house--- without a trace of her getting tired. I see her accomplished tasks with dedication even though it’s the same things she’s been doing at home every day. She deserves to be called as Wonder Woman with such amazing ability.

Thus, I also have this fantasy of being a superhero someday while growing up. Now that I’m already in my thirties, the illusion of being able to wear a cape, fly high and run as fast as a bullet train still tickle my imagination. Now, if the Gods from Planet Krypton can read this, I hope they can lend me the powers of Clark Kent even for a limited time so I can finally realize things I can only witness in my dreams. Even if I have to wear my underwear over my pants, I’ll do it for the sake of being the Man of Steel for seven days.

This would be my schedule for that super week which will be a world tour of sort:

Monday – I’ll go on an Asian tour. I will complete the Great Wall of China in 10 seconds, free fall from the Burj Kalifa in Dubai, eat tons of sushi and tempura in Tokyo, watch a K-Pop concert for free while floating on top of the Olympic Stadium in Seoul and of course, shop in Hong Kong.

Tuesday - I’ll visit the land down under. I will chase kangaroos and play with its joeys, race with a Tasmanian Devil, throw a boomerang and try to catch it in mid air while blindfolded, and watch shows outside the Sydney Opera House using my x-tray vision.

Wednesday – I’ll travel to Europe. I will try to fix the Leaning Tower of Pisa, go out on a date with a girl from Paris and hopefully experience genuine French kiss (if not, will just order fries at a fast food store), get soaked in London rain and pay respect to Pope Francis.

Thursday – I’ll circle South America. I’ll attend costume parties in the streets of Rio de Janeiro, go on a deep sea diving exploration in the Caribbean Sea, be literally on the middle of the planet at Ecuador and try to get a cameo role in a Venezuelan soap opera.  

Friday – I’ll explore Africa. I will try stop sand storms in Sahara desert, check and fix cracks on the pyramids of Egypt, tame a cheetah or a rhino, learn new survival skills in the Safari, and relax and take a quick shower at Victoria falls.

Saturday – I’ll journey to North America. I will try to catch live NBA games in every city stop, guess at Ellen or Oprah’s show and show my super singing skills, party at New York City or Las Vegas and try to run and jump from East coast to West coast as fast as I can.

Sunday – I’ll be in the best place in the world. And that’s in the loving arms of my wife and son Charles. I will be the Super Dad at home for the day and they can ask me anything they want which is probably a piece of cake since I’m Superman, right?

But being the Man of Steel is not just about strength and the power to fly or run fast.  You also have to be street smart and you think sharp like the razor of Schick.

Incidentally, Schick is giving away tickets to the special screening of Man of Steel plus other premium items though their Superman promo. All you have to do is click the image below and you will be directed to the contest page. Always remember: Schick. Free Your Skin.
