Here are some of the Antica Murrina's beautiful jewelry pieces.
It was a fancy event at a fancy place with fancy people and fancy drinks. I'm not a hard drinker but don't you think it's so baduy how I got a bit tipsy with just two glasses of sparkling wine?! hehe
So the concept of the night was to incorporate Antica Murrina jewelry pieces with fashion-forward clothing designs by Ryan Madamba. He used Abel Iloco materials to compliment the fine Murano jewelries!
When I got the e-mail invitation from Ms. Angela, I actually saw some famous bloggers as mail recepients. Some of them were David Guison, Vern and Vernice, Shensaddisction, Pinkcoolaid, and more. I was looking forward to seeing them that night. Guess what? NONE of them came! Too bad. (Just wondering, though, if the event was just a really small and intimate one and the organizer only invited 10... and only 2 came?! hehe)
Anyway, guess who came to the show...
Mrs. Imelda Marcos was there! It's so overwhelming how I get invites to events with guests as prominent as her. I feel so blessed, really!
Two bloggers: Kristine and Andy! hehe
I like taking candid shots of Andy and I noticed that she has also started taking candid photos of me, hehe I love this shot in particular! (The guy on my side was cute but wasn't interested to talk, though.)
Since I was young, I've been so curious how long Madame Marcos takes to get her hair done like that? Why did I not ask last night! #willforeverhauntyou #notreallygoingtoaskthough
The show finally started at around 7:30 PM. The show was indeed star-studded. Andy said this fine lady joined the Asia's Next Top Model show.
I love how well the Murano jewelries and Ryan's Abel Iloco dresses go together!
So I was sitting there admiring the dresses and the jewelries when suddenly this woman came from the second floor. Had no idea who she was until I saw the screen displayed her name. Divine Lee.
I don't always squeal or scream when I see celebrities (unless it's Infinite or some Kpop stars) but I really squealed when I saw her!

The stage was so colorful and was filled with beautiful women!
The show ended and it was time to go home. I won't go home with some photos for the blog, though.
It was so difficult to approach Tessa Prieto-Valdes. She looks so classy and rich and sophisticated that I didn't want her to think I was creepy or anything. Plus, she was always talking with someone that it was difficult to even say hi. I finally had the guts. If I may put it, she was "reserved" and "distant". I was telling her how it was so difficult to approach her and that she looks stunning in person but she just responded with a few nods...
I specifically asked Andy to capture Ms. Tessa's entire dress. hehe
Jimmy and Kring were there, too. If you guys remember, I used to write for Kring's MyKoreanBoyfriend.com blog. I wrote under her beauty and fashion category. I've always admired her and somehow jealous (lol) of her when she hosted the DKFC 1 concert and Infinite's Press Conference. I mean, any Inspirit would feel that way! hehe But I am so happy for her and Jimmy for their dreamy wedding! 결혼 축하합니다~
Successfully approached Divine for a photo. I'm not sure if I've told you guys enough how much I like Divine. I know some people that don't like her because of her "bakla" attitude and some even hate-talk on her because of her father's scandal. But I met her a few years back and I saw what I saw! She showed me a really nice personality. Yung walang ere and walang arte, kahit ang yaman! And that's what made me like her. I am very loyal when it comes to liking people. And I tell you guys that Divine is such a nice person!
Would you believe I held her hands and hugged her?! Hah, creepy me. I told her how happy I was to see her and I was totally not expecting she'd be there. What I like about her is that she'd never make you feel like she doesn't want to talk or doesn't want a photo with you. It's always a YES with a smile. She'll also add some short conversation with that.
So, that's what happened at the Antica Murrina event. It was such a lovely experience!
