The Super Duper Mini Cooper!

It's too cute. It's adorable. It is fast and easy to handle. May be small but has enough space for my mini luggage that I need to bring with me everyday. 

Guys looked at me when I drove it. They think I am cute. A car does that to you. The better the car, the better you look in it. It's science. 

I want one. 

"The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s.[5][6][7] Its space-saving front-wheel drive layout – allowing 80 percent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage – influenced a generation of car makers.[8] The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of its German contemporary the Volkswagen Beetle, or the Italian Fiat 500. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T." - Wikipedia

Not sure if it is still considered an "economy car" as it runs by the millions but who cares how much it is when I look good in it? 

Just want to tell you that my daughter and I cleaned the car! Even that was fun! 

A great big THANK YOU to Mini Cooper, Philippines for allowing me to feel the power and awesomeness of the Mini.

BBQ by the Pool at Peninsula.

Do you fancy a premium char-grilled burger? What about a seared ahi tuna fillet or perhaps the juiciest scallops? My favorite? Lamb and Tiger Prawns. 

Barbecue by the Pool continues from 6:30pm to 9:30pm every Friday and Saturday evening. 

Off to the side of the pool, you will see a small, quaint area that's set up for guests that makes dining out a very enjoyable experience. 

I gathered my gang of 18 and when we got in, I was happy to see my name carved on ice! Though to me, the carving resembled a phallic symbol, I was told it was a mask. No worries, I don't mind both. 

My buffet actually started when these men arrived....

The first thing I check out is the dessert spread and well, I only have my eyes set on one kind.....

......Pecan Pie.

Aside from the meats to be grilled, there's a variety of salads, cheeses, breads and soup to choose from. Perfect way to rev up your appetite. 

A BBQ is never complete without the following side dishes. 

Thank you so much for my friends who believe in my restaurant suggestions! 

Short story: 

Met Leandro. We got along so well. Ange sends over a cake. Soon after....

The Pre-Nup Photos......

After a few minutes of peaceful bliss..... another man enters the picture.

Story of my life.

The End.

Birth of City of Dreams.

Only the four of us will know the craziness that happened before we finally got to hit the red carpet of City of Dreams. All I can say is that it was an adventure that made me love these two female celebrities even more. 

Candifier, Iza Calzado, Lucy T. Gomez and Dennis Lustico

Once we got in, Ms. Marina Benipayo welcomed us. Her gown was made by Rajo Laurel and something that big deserves a photo op. 

Group photo with my three girlies! 
Iza, Grace Ang, Lucy and yours truly. 

Bumped into my old GM (EDSA Shangri-la Hotel days) Mr. Jarlath Lynch. 

The evening started with a few performances by Jed Madela and Zsa Zsa Padilla. 

Dinner soon began. 

Crack the chocolate egg and fruity surprise awaits. 

Between courses, we were entertained by super energetic Kelly Rowland. 

And of course, NEYO came to the stage and we all went wild. 

Congratulations City of Dreams and THANK YOU for all the love, Charisse and Erika! 

To my gang, thank you for coming with me!!!

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

The Mercedes-Benz A-Class is a compact car produced by the German automobile manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. The first generation (W168) was introduced in 1997, the second generation model (W169) appeared in late 2004, and the third generation model (W176) was launched in 2012. 

Now, being a girl, you might not expect me to know anything about vehicles. Well you are right. I don't. But I do know beauty and speed. This car has both and to a girl, that's all that matters. 

CATS Motors was gracious enough to lend me their A Class to test drive it for a day. I took it to South Super Highway and really stepped on the pedal to feel the power of the engine. I felt cool, pretty and some kind of awesome in it. 

I love every detail this car has. 

Originally launched only as a five-door hatchback in 1997, the second generation W169 introduced a three-door hatchback to sit six inches below the five-door. In the markets that the A-Class is or has been sold in, it has represented the entry level model of Mercedes-Benz. Having grown by 68 cm since the original model, the 2012 A-class is now longer than the first-generation B-class.

FILA Polo Cup for ISPORTLIFE Ministries.

FILA Held Annual Polo Cup for ISPORTLIFE Ministries FILA, the market leader in the local sportswear industry, held its annual FILA Polo Cup last February 1, 2015 at The Manila Polo Club to support ISPORTLIFE Ministries, the non-profit subsidiary of Isport Life Inc. (FILA Philippines) headed by Mr. Butch Albert, chairman and Ms. Cris Albert, president. 

Mr. Albert has been recently recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of 48 notable people in the world being one of the four Filipino philanthropists amongst The Po's, the Tan's and Mr. Ricky Razon. The Red Team composed of Butch Albert, Santi Juban, Adrian Garcia and Coco Garcia emerged as champions from last Sunday’s Low Goal Game while the White Team composed of IƱigo Zobel, Cole Aguirre, Gregorio Gelosi and Dirk Gould won the High Goal Game. Tim Yap and Tessa Prieto-Valdez hosted the cup’s opening and awarding ceremonies.

ISPORTLIFE Ministries was born out of a burden to reach out in love, grace and compassion to the victims of the calamity that struck the provinces of Aurora and Quezon in November-December 2004. A team of Christian volunteers headed by Rolando Cucio, Mariyah Lagman and Victor Julius Ferrer organized themselves to provide emergency relief and medical assistance to the two most severely devastated barangays in Infanta. ISPORTLIFE Ministries has been supporting Filipino families through the years with the vision of having a society of progressive, self-sustaining communities passionate for God and country. Their mission is to partner with communities and organizations in extending emergency relief and holistic community development to calamity-stricken and disaster-prone, socio-economically challenged communities. 

FILA is an Italian-South Korean sportswear manufacturer widely known in specializing technologically advanced footwear in running, casual, basketball and racquet sports. FILA has also diversified its reach into motor sports, fitness and yoga, mountain climbing, regatta sailing, skiing and sports fashion. With over 350 outlets nationwide, FILA has been growing rapidly offering new styles across different footwear categories in sports and lifestyle.
