2. TELESCOPIC UMBRELLA BY FOX. Telescopic means you can fold it. Which means you can carry it without fuss. Which also means that this umbrella will be on hand in case of rain. P4,500, Signet, Shangri-La at the Fort.

3. SHOE WAX BY CARMINA. Because wax repels water, the regular application of a wax-based polish on leather footwear is highly recommended. P800, Signet, Shangri-La at the Fort.
