Turning 45 is not as easy as I thought. My hormones are acting up. I needed to get a DNC because my monthly visitor wouldn't leave me for three straight months. So much so that I needed to get blood transfusion before the procedure. Hay..... age.
Anyway, I decided to throw a party and spend my birthday with my loving family and friends.
Robert Blancaflor is all I really need when I need to beautify the house to another level. His efficient staff will make sure that everything is perfect before your party begins. Thank you darling, for always being there for me.
Never had the house filled with so many creative souls. Artists, designers, chefs and musicians came to show me some love.

Maco Custodio has been making shoes since he was 20 years old. This was soon after he graduated from Philippine Footwear Academy. It was in 2008 when he stepped foot in the fashion scene when he and JC Buendia collaborated for a show in Makati Shangri-la Hotel.
Since then, he has made his mark by creating pieces from recycled foil and leather which has won him awards.
This is Gwenx. It is a Katha Award winner for best product in fashion in 2016. Silver foil woven bag is outlined by British tan calfskin leather. The foil is recycled and helps sustain the livelihood of Gawad Kalinga's Sunshineville Community in Las Pinas City.
Absolutely love my Chequitita. The outer shell is made of silver tetrapack foil, individually folded and handwoven together with calfskin leather tooling attached by screws. It's the perfect size for my daily essentials.
