In this day of flat lays and curated posts, it's quite hard to distinguish the sosyal from the social climber and the soshal climber, which is why we got a few pointers from Vivian, Camille, and Faye of The Soshal Network's book, Etiquette for Soshal Climbers, and listed 10 qualities below.  

  1. You're friends with the rich and famous.

Whether it's "Toasted Caribbean Milk Fish and Peruvian Rice (pritong bangus at bahaw)," "Tangled Rapunzel Angel Hair Noodles with Jasmin Rice and Mint Chocolate Chips (pancit canton, kanin at chocolate souvenir galing binyag)," or "Low fat red velvet panini (pumayat na pan de regla)."

  1. You know where to find New York (or any place in the world) in Manila.

Like Paris in Quezon City, Macau in BGC, Japan in your kapitbahay, or Maldives in your garahe.

  1. You're always beach ready.

Because layering shouldn't only be applicable during the winter season!

  1. Your flat lay game is strong.

And you know that the most genuine flat lays involve a human element. 

  1. You're cultured.

You like taking pictures in landmarks that involve the culture, arts, and history.

Especially the best pambahay glam: daster!

  1. You know the right accessories to use.

And only patronize the ones that are dual purpose!

  1. You have to have your daily dose of Starbucks.

Even if it means having to share it with three other people.

Make sure to grab a copy of The Soshal Network's Etiquette for Soshal Climbers for more LOL and facepalms, whether as gifts for your friends or for yourself! It's available in bookstores for only P250!
