My Tita Nena Vargas Tantoco gave me one of these candleholders. It’s made out of trees that fell from typhoon Glenda in Sta. Elena.
She taught the gardeners how to make it and they make them during their spare time. Tita Nena sells them and she buys some from the gardeners and it goes to the Sta. Elena employees fund. Isn’t she amazing?

It is not written here but IN.C came from Incy which was how Ina’s dad used to call her So it could mean “Incy” or INa Colayco Ina studied graphics design from Parsons New York City which explains her creativity. She is also OC ( obsessive compulsive ) but maybe that is not from Parsons But I think it is good and can only mean that she is meticulous about what she does
Last Monday, we had a plan! Which we all put together in two days for a Wednesday celebration It’s all TEAMWORK! And this was the plan taken from our WhatsApp group ” THE GOLDEN AN PLAN”

after class, we will all go to the back parking by the badminton – my van will be there with driver so we can all go together and not worry about parking. We will go to MAPLE in San Antonio Forbes. Laura already reserved the place. Ty Laura and EA
I will bring a cake/dessert and Nelson and Siuping can bring it during dessert and we can sing and he will blow.
From Maple – my van can bring everyone back to Polo. KKB tayo but lets not let Ned pay Okay? THATS THE PLAN!
The plan worked out very well and smoothly and we were able to come up with all that in a day’s planning!!! Every single one contributed for the celebration!!! So much fun!!

Taken from Die Hard the movie Thanks Ina for all the wonderful creatives!!! It really set the mood and tone for the celebration We had special guests who joined us Dra. Vermin Verallo who also trains one on one with Ned! Three times a week! She is 76 years old and very strong probably stronger than all of us Ned scheduled a breakfast with his friend from the states, Rene! So we were happy to adopt him for the day as a boot camper Laura’s kids joined us as well – Gavin and Madison – they took the place of Juampi who could not joinBreakfast at Maple!!! As a tip, please use the salt and pepper shakers to season your food. I am sure they put those there because they did not season the food, you have to do it yourself to your liking The Big Maple BreakfastEggs Benedict that had no muffin since it was out of stockHuevos Rancheros – a bestseller and it looks so good but Lance did not share this with us! haha!!
Truffle Omelette Souffle!! How unique!!! and yummy!We shared this and cut it like a pizza Prime Rib Tapa – another unique dish and one of the bestsellers in MapleChicken Fried SteakMaple Belgian WaffleChicken dish which I cannot find in the menu -it was for the kids so it must have been in the menu Fruit Brûlée

I was going to bring this to bootcamp class because I knew Ned liked it and then from there decided to make it into a more complicated celebration Leana our SGV and treasure who audited the bill and collected from us – she was so ready she even had a plastic bag with change in case she needed.

Go past the Henry Hotel and there are three houses one after the other. It’s the furniture and home accessories store of Eric Paras called A11
Since the Henry Hotel is part of a compound of homes and occupies only 6 out of the 15 houses there, there are still other residents and other houses there
All the houses in the compound look the same but the ones renting may have changed or refurbished them a bit so they all have their own unique character
