SPCP Batch ’87 Reunion

By | Celebrations | No Comments
It was great seeing my gradeschool batchmates from St. Paul College of Pasig. Though I left for highschool and went to Assumption, they have still included me as part of the SPCP Batch ’87. I loved my gradeschool days- my friends, my school and had lots of memories to treasure. It was nice to see many faces from 24 years ago. Thanks to Eizelle, Pia and Tricia for making this happen.

I was invited by my gradeschool bestfriend, Nelda Valencia-Eufemio, to the launching of her new clinic at the Fort. NU U is a one stop health and beauty center combining both Dermatology and Dental services. I am so proud of her and how she has succeeded in her career. She is responsible for the SHINY white teeth of all the Close up models and other celebrities. Congratulations to Nelda and her team! [email_link]

Restaurant 101

By | Foodie | One Comment
Restaurant 101 has been in operations for over a year now. The restaurant is part of the Hotel and Restaurant management school, Enderun. We were impressed with Enderun and the quality of the facilities in the school and that such exists in our country. There are already around 300 students. We had a very good impression especially by the students who were all very formal in their suits. It is timing to have such a school in a country where the hotel and restaurant industry is booming. More power to Enderun.

PHOTOS! PHOTOS! PHOTOS!!  I discovered these very interesting items at Rustan’s Gift pavilion.   I particularly like charm bracelets so I was going crazy.  All the other items are also very nice items to store your photos in.  Nice gift too. 
The Gift Pavilion is on the 4th floor of Rustan’s Makati across Home Cafe and beside the elevator.  Look for my friend and sales associate, Jackie.  She will gladly help you pick out all kinds of photo storage items.

Museo Pambata

By | Educare, Giving Back | No Comments

Quinto treated 98 Educare kids to Museo Pambata.( He celebrated his birthday last May in London but waited to get to Manila to celebrate it here with them. Though the kids were a bit too young to read and appreciate every single exhibit, they surely had a great time just exploring their hands and touching everything. The kids were so excited to get to the next room and to the next. It was JOYFUL chaos and this will definitely be an experience they will cherish for the rest of their lives. Thank you to our dear friends, Suharto, Rina and Quinto for sharing your blessings with the kids. Thanks also to Rina’s mom, Tita Fely for sharing her time and being with us….Nothing is more valuable than giving your time to help others and make them happy.

Rome Foodie

This is for those who requested for places to eat in Rome. Two out of the five places we ate in were recommended by our concierge and they were both very good. We preferred to eat near the hotel especially for dinner so it is not too far.
