The People You Know

I had lunch with Tina Mariano today.

Tina is a reader of my blog for a very long time now. She reads my blog everyday to the point that even her husband knows me, too.

We have scheduled lunch since mid this year but it gets cancelled last minute. I think we re-sched more than 5 times already. Since she travels a lot it took us this long to finally find time.

She is traveling again in 2 weeks so she emailed me and we scheduled lunch again. Good thing we were both free today.

So finally, after so many months we finally met.

Our lunch was at Paul Boulangerie, Patisserie, Restaurant and Salon at SM Aura at 12:30pm.

I had a few things to finish this morning and was kinda harassed.

So, in between receiving calls and texting to clients I fixed myself. My other hand was holding my cellphone and the other hand was holding a make brush and in my right ear was an earphone cause I was facetiming. Multi tasking to the highest level.

TB saw me and said: “ang sipag mo. Ano ba talaga ang racket mo?”

While I waited for Joshua cause Vinny had an errand for him, I did my ootd photo shoot.

Schumi made a scene and wanted some hugs.IMG_7082IMG_7085

He probably felt that I was leaving and didn’t want to let go. He’s such a sweet baby!

I put up my hair since I didn’t have time to shampoo anymore. It will take me more than 2 hours and I didn’t have that much time.

IMG_7088 IMG_7089 IMG_7090Tina texted me when she was on her way and that was just about the time I was leaving. SM Aura is just about 10 to 15 mins away from me.

She got there first and luckily she didn’t wait long.

This photo was taken after we finished eating.

I forgot the name cause it was in French. But this was beef with onions, mushrooms, etc on top of a bread. I finished it in less than 10 minutes!

At exactly 12:01 midnight tonight I will have my Iphone 6+ in my hands. When I got home there were PLDT tech guys waiting for me to fix our Fibr Optic (our internet still feels DSL and we have complained so many times and nothing happened).

After 10 minutes when I got home PLDT called me and did a speed test in our internet.  After I hang up with PLDT I received a call from Smart Infinity inviting me for the launching of Iphone 6 and Iphone 6+ tonight at Salon de Ning at The Peninsula Manila. Tomorrow I will have people from Smart fixing our phone signal in our house.

The point of my story is: it is not what you know. It is WHO you know.

Tina Mariano is First Vice President, Global Access Group of Smart Communication.

Smart will launch their Iphone 6 and Iphone 6+ at exactly 12:01am tonight at Salon de Ning, The Peninsula Manila. And guess who gets the first Iphone 6+ unit at exactly 12:01am?

Your guess is as good as mine.

I did not know who Tina was, where she was working, etc. prior to our lunch. I agreed to meet with her for the same reason why I agreed to meet with my other readers.

Let’s make that clear.
