Hey Handsome!!!

Months after my birthday, I found myself still celebrating it with truly great friends at Hey Handsome. 

First of all, I LOVED the food. Everything we ordered, which was just about everything was delicious. I didn't realize Thai food could get any better. Actually, I wasn't even aware there was such a thing as Peranakan cuisine until now. 

If you haven't tried, do yourself a favor and call for your reservation now. 

Since this is a super late post, I have forgotten the names of these dishes so I suggest you just show the waiter/waitress these photos and prepare yourself for a wonderful dinner. 

A great big thanks to my girlie-girls for the birthday treat!!! Love you!!

Myth and Reality

THE LION Myth and Reality Majestic, athletic, and powerful — it is little wonder that the lion is known as the king of the beasts. Revered as an icon in texts dating back to the days of Ancient Greece, the lion still remains a popular animal on coats of arms today. 

Its distinctive golden mane gives the animal an aura of pride. The magnificent coat instills respect in other males, while females are drawn to the lion’s spectacular headdress. 

 With a shoulder height of up to 120 centimeters, the lion is Africa’s largest predator. Yet, despite this, it still has one powerful enemy: humans! There are still far too many hunters who see the mighty animal as a trophy. There are now only 23,000 lions left in Africa, and in India their population is rapidly declining. 

Unlike other cats, lions live in prides. These are made up of several lionesses and their cubs, which are usually protected by a maximum of three to four males. When in danger, the lion protects itself with lightning-fast swipes of its paws — and its thundering roar! 

SCS ANNUAL EDITION 2016 LION AKILI The SCS Annual Edition 2016 is the Lion Akili. A noble creation in richly faceted crystal. Designer Heinz Tabertshofer used Light Sand for the body and Smoky Quartz crystal for the mane. The Swarovski logo, the designer’s initials, ”HT“, and the name ”Akili“ have been engraved on the very back paw. The Lion Akili is limited to one piece per member and available during 2016 only.

Swarovski is available at Rustan's Makati, Rustan's Shangri-la, Rustan's Alabang and Rustan's Cebu.

Style Weekend, Lifetime Jewelry.

A great big THANKS to Liza Ilarde for writing about our anniversary show last July. We are also very grateful for all the guests that attended and supported out event. 

Busy Birthday Bash, Part 1.

July is usually a very busy month for me. Aside from 5 family members celebrating their birthdays, including myself, we have our annual jewelry show that we prepare months ahead for. Late nights, early mornings and lots of eating in between. 

Gone were the days when I would organize a huge party to celebrate my birthday. Nowadays, it's a small and intimate breakfast, lunch or dinner for this old lady. 

Started last week when I arranged a dinner with my Donas namely Macky Fah, Venisse Hermano and Joanna Cabangon. We had it in my newest favorite hang out (mainly because it is a 3-minute walk from home), Pablo. They also serve delicious food and service is great. 

Thanks to Booky, I was able to get this free dessert!!! 

Love you Donas! 

The next day, Bea Ledesma, Dennis and I had dinner at Kai where Bea treated me to yummy Japanese food!! 

Thank you for dinner B!!!!

Afterwards, we watched Ghostbusters. Bea taught me that my fingers don't have to get oily when eating butter popcorn! Ask for gloves! 

This celebration was followed by a breakfast date with Dennis Lustico, Ivar Aseron and Robby Carmona at Escolta of The Pen. 

Thank you to my Peninsula Manila family for the cake!

On the eve of my birthday, I celebrated it at home with family, potluck junk food style. 


S and R pizza




On the day itself, I had no plans. I thought it would be a lazy day wherein I can just stay in bed the entire day but I was surprised by dinner prepared by Ginny and K. Cedric. 

Melissa and Apollo sent me this!! Heaven!!!

There's more but I can't really flood this post with too much food. Just looking at it is making my tummy growl. 

So far, it has been a very fun-filled birthday, thanks to my dear friends and family.
