Roxanne & Me we’re planning to go somewhere out-of-town last Friday. Just for the day. We needed to get back to the city since I have an event on Saturday. And the MayPac fight on Sunday.
Tagaytay was a no-no. First, Eric ( a friend of ours who lives in Tagaytay) wasn’t there, he went diving in Anilao. And second, I am sure everyone in Manila was there. Okay, maybe half of Manila was there.
We thought of going to Villa Escudero.
But waking up on Friday morning with intense heat we ended up having lunch in Wildflour, Salcedo Village. hahaha. Mga tamad.
We spent the entire afternoon just going around the city.
Saturday morning I brought Vito to his Orthopedic Doctor, Dr. Vince Gomez. He was having some chest pains since March. The minute he arrived from school (UBC, Vancouver) the first thing he said to me was he needed to see Dr. Gomez.
Costochondritis according to Dr. Gomez. Okay. Nothing serious. Normal for athletes Dr. Gomez told us.
Claudia joined us for lunch in Wholesome Table in BGC and stayed home the whole afternoon. It was very hot. The real summer heat at it’s best.
Sometime last week this landed on my work table: An invitation from CVS or Chuvaness as she is fondly called.CVS always gives the best themed parties. No one can beat her, in my opinion. She takes care of everything down to the last detail.
She turned Whitespace into a big Plane, CVS Airways, Business Class section. From the lighting A big screen. 80’s movies were shown the whole time and her favorite Japanese old moviesThe waiters were in Pilot’s uniform serving us in a cart. Just like in the plane.And the food was served exactly like you’re on a flight. It was catered by no less than Gaita Fores. I wish the food on the plane was this good!
First served was the salad and apetizer. Spaghetini truffle cream & prosciutto pasta, Caesar salad with prosciutto crisp and parmesan croutons and some bread with CVS Airways butter.Main course was pan roasted sea bass in cartoccio, malagos goat cheese potato torte, Lusso’s entrecote, french butter riceNext was the desert. Soooo yummy! Vanilla creme brule, lychee gelato, CVS Airways chocolates and cupcakes.I saw some good friends. The usual people I see in all CVS parties. L to R: Patrice Diaz, Patty Betita, Grace Velasco, Me, & Jeroen Van Straten (CVS’ husband)Some scenes from the party.
Happy birthday Mother! Wish you happiness always.
I watched the MayPac fight with some friends in Rolls Royce Showroom in BGC. The kids watched with their friends in Chavit Singson’s house.
Congratulations Manny Pacquiao!
