With the local government recently declaring that the wearing of face shields in Metro Manila is no longer mandatory, actress Kim Chiu celebrated the new mandate with an ode of sorts to her old safety accessory through her self-declared “Face shield appreciation post” last November 18.

The 31-year-old “Bawal Lumabas” singer wrote in her post, “Salamat sa lahat ng pinagsamahan natin, almost two years din tayong mag-ON, masaya ako na dumating ka sa buhay ko kahit minsan naiinis na ‘ko sa ‘yo pero wala akong narinig na reklamo mula sa ‘yo, salamat sa pag protekta sakin sa mga bagay na kinakatakutan ko. Ikaw pa nga ang unang humaharap. Masaya ako na nakilala kita face to face. Mamimiss kita, pero I think it’s about time to let go!!!! Ingat ka ha?? Wag kana balik. Salamat nalang sa lahat. Move on na tayo! 🤪lels 😅 #SalamatFaceShield 🤣🤣🤣”


Kim wore her face shield whenever she went outside of her home, whether it be for work like her contract signing last year or while doing dance videos behind-the-scenes for ASAP or It’s Showtime.

The Kapamilya star also turned her face shield into a fashion accessory, occasionally posting her OOTDs with a face shield on with reminders for her followers to always be safe and follow protocols.

In a previous post, she wrote, “Essentials when going out of the house.🏡.

“Felt weird. Before this pandemic happened, all we have in our hand is our phone or purse, but now it is alcohol, sanitizer, and everything germ killer. On our face.., makeup like lipsticks, blush on, etc. On our eyes. are the trendy eyeglasses, frameless to add fashion, sunglasses most oversized to smallest.. but now we ended up with mask ON and Face Shield ON. Goes to show that everything in life is temporary. Sounds cliché, but ‘Change is the only constant thing in this world.’ Stay safe everyone. #wearyourmask😷”

During the start of the lockdown in Metro Manila last year, Kim was one of the first celebrities to do their part in helping frontliners. Last year, she made 2,000 face shields while doing home quarantine in Quezon City. She wrote, “Made 2,000 DIY face shields for our frontliners. Hope this will help❤️”

 

 

After releasing the single “Bawal Lumabas” last year, Kim also starred in the iWanTFC Original series Bawal Lumabas The Series that came out the same year.
