The Hills are Alive!



Last night, my sister treated me and my mom to watch the musical play of The Sound of Music at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila. I love The Sound of Music! I remember watching the old film from Betamax. XD 


We were so amazed with this timeless tale of love and surprisingly, mom knows all the song! This is our first time to watch with mom without her falling asleep at the middle of the show - take note: this play lasted for 3 hours. Haha! We were lucky to catch Joanna Ampil to play as Maria Rainer. The entire cast was truly enchanting. The heavenly voices of the nuns of Nonnberg Abbey are still playing in my head up to now. Maybe, it's the reason why I got a good sleep last night? I love the fascinating voices of the kids too. Alexa Villaroel was a little out of tune but she was just too charming in front of the audience. Everything is just spectacular!


The stage production was so grand - a jaw dropper. I mean, how were they able to put those gigantic props on stage? Plus, they have a large LED background screen at the back that is highly impressive. Two LED on the sides was a bright idea too, so that everyone can see the actors' facial expressions on play. The 20 piece orchestra playing on screen also made everyone entertained while changing scenes.

Wow wow wow. This is world class. Bravo! Oh, Im sure this is the best treat for your family and friends this Holiday season. Don't miss it!

This musical play is extended until December 30! Tickets are available at the Resorts World Manila Box Office and all TicketWorld outlets. Call the Resorts World Manila Tourist/Visitor Hotline at 836-6333, 908-8833 or TicketWorld at 811-9999 for more information.

What's on my table? Etude House Moistfull Masks


Freebies! Everybody loves freebies! That's what I've got from my previous purchase from Etude House. What's inside? A cutout face shaped sheet mask with holes for eyes, nose and mouth. It's pre-soaked in Moistfull essence to make skin soft and moisted.


Use it before bedtime. Allow it to sink into skin for 10-20 minutes. The mask feels amazing on skin. I swear, it will definitely make your skin smooth and younger looking in an instant! You'll wake up in the morning feeling soft and fresh. I would love to try more of their facial masks.

There are many available face masks with difference essence in it depending on your needs. Visit the nearest Etude House Philippines shore now and buy these affordable face masks!

Holiday Glam


Ok I am so excited for our Christmas Party next week. Not because of the party itself, but it's the time of the year that I browse outfits online and look for clothes suited for theme - Holiday Glam.Our theme would be shining and shimmering. We'd be sparkling on the spotlight!

Nothing brightens up the cold, blustery days of Fall more than a little sparkle. It's still applicable here in the Philippines. Hurray for my favorite season of the year! This season, there are a lot of shimmery clothes in the form of cocktail dresses, blouses, pants, and even jackets. Now, how do we achieve this sassy style without looking like a total Disco Diva from a different era? Here are some metallic and sparkly pieces I've found over the internet:

TOPSHOP

Today's Daily Fix - Premium Metallic Pleat Skirt. I've fallen hard for this ultra-cool pure liquid silver pleated skirt. Looks great when blouse's tucked in and a tight black jacket for a classically feminine with a futuristic edge!


These shiny wetlook leggings are so cool , it will definitely kick up a notch! Now I can't decide~ With these, I could run and move freely for sure! Throw on heels or boots of any height, and you are ready for a night on the town.




FOREVER 21


If you dont like the idea of investing on shiny pants, you may tone it down and wear a shiny blouse instead. That yould be less expensive of course. Would you believe this regular priced top is just P505?



MELISSA

Who doesn't love Joy Maskrey? Less heels but definitely a stunner for those who'd love androgynous style.


FIGLIA


Gold and Silver shoes!!! Every girl would love to wear metallic shoes in any tone. Pair it with a gold or silver clutch and add some fun baubles and you're instantly put together. The possibilities are endless!

It's time to roam around the mall and shop for your favorite metallic pieces! Maybe, you'd like to visit Mango too, they're on 30% sale until Dec. 4, 2011!

What's on our table at California Berry!



Last weekend, me and sister had a small chill time at California Berry, SM Megamall Bldg A at the Lower Ground Floor. We availed our Ensogo voucher there and paid only P85 each for medium sized yogurt with three toppings of our choice. Super sulit! I'm also so thrilled to know that they have Blueberry froyo available. Yay!


I ordered for Blueberry froyo with Kiwi, Cherry, and Lychee toppings while sister had Mango, Brownies, and Kiwi.


What a beautiful and peaceful ambiance - to think that there were no other customers inside. And look at this pretty ceiling lights:



We also got 20% off gift certificates! Wow! This means we have to visit California Berry again soon!


We stayed a bit longer than usual and camwhored cause we were so amused that our clothes even matched the interior! Happy neons!

It was my second and last time to attend this Up and Coming series of  parties from Meg. We arrived at KYSS Bar and Restaurant Lounge early now - yay! The event featured top Filipina Fashion Bloggers Laureen Uy and Camille Co! I'm happy for this two for going that far. It was a great night to meet the fashion bloggers out there too.

Photo booth here and there. Look at the MEG Event collage filled with fashionable people we saw. These are all available online!


Had a chance to meet again the beautiful bloggers too and had a photo with them:


Meg's EIC, Bianca Gonzales, welcomed everyone to Meg Up and Coming...


...and introduced the whole MEG team to the crowd.


After that, they welcomed the two featured fashion bloggers - Laureen Uy and Camille Co. These young ladies are not only beautiful on cameras but also in person!


And look at their lovely pumps!!!

They had a mini fashion show with the other bloggers and got lootbags from Terra & Agua. Meg also gave out surprises for the audience too!


Hey, we saw our friend Ryuji Shiomitsu too that night! Love those glasses on you, dear~


What a blast! Congratulations to MEG team for this successful series of events! Thank you MEG for this and sponsors like - Marithe Francois Girbaud and The Face Shop for the lootbags and making this event possible . Till next time!

Here's my date for that night, Eton. Motorcycle jackets: a coincidence!
