Wearing eyewear, just like mask, is essential nowadays and Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda is thankful he has kept two old ones.
Showing two pairs of eyewear on his Instagram account last Sunday, Miranda shared how these have become helpful to him.
“Matagal nang nasa akin ‘tong mga ‘to, pero halos hindi ko naman nagagamit kasi sinusuot ko lang sila tuwing nagfa-firing,” he said. (Its long been with me but I don’t get to use it frequently because I just wear them during firing.)
“Eh biglang naging essential mag-suot ng eyewear for added protection… kaya ayun! Nasulit ko sila bigla outside firing hehe!” he noted. (It has since been essential to use eyewear for added protection, so viola! It was well worth it instantly outside of the firing range.)
He went on to describe the use of each eyewear.
“Yung Rudy Project Airblast, pang-firing talaga yan, pero ginagamit din minsan pang-bike kasi sakto yung hulma ng top part ng frame nya para pwede mag-suot ng cap or helmet, tapos manipis at adjustable yung temples para masukat mo ng maayos sa ulo mo, at madali at comfortable mag-suot ng ear protection,” he said.
(The Rudy Project Airblast, that’s really for firing, but it is sometimes used while biking because the top part of its frame is exact; it is thin and the temples are adjustable which fits your head and it’s easy and comfortable when you wear an ear protection.)
“Yung Oakley Standard Issue Ballistic M-Frame 2.0 naman, dinesign talaga ng Oakley para sa mga specific na pangangailangan ng military at ng mga law enforcement personnel… kaya ang angas lang din hehe!,” he said of the other pair.
(The Oakley Standard Issue Ballistic M-Frame 2.0 was designed by Oakley for specific needs of the military and law enforcement personnel. It’s really badass.)
He’s grateful he was able to keep these two pairs because it sure saved him money from buying separate and new protective eyewear against the coronavirus.
“Kaya next time, kapag may bibilin ako para sa firing, sasabihin ko kay Neri na magandang investment yan kasi baka magamit namin sa future,” he said, mentioning his mompreneur wife, actress Neri Naig.
(Next time, when I have to buy anything for firing, I will tell Neri that it’s a good investment because we could use it in the future.) JB
