Globe Tatt Awards Night

I was planning to go to Sagada when I had received the invitation for the Globe Tatt Awards Night at the Peninsula Manila. I told myself, I’ll be quick, just to show up and meet some friends, have a taste of Peninsula’s desserts, which they are really known for (proof: I had no picture of it because it went straight to the mouth!) But alas, Tita Mary of the Residence Lodge in Sagada texted me about the continuous rain and the risk for “slide”. Instant change of plans (and well, settling of some depression over a spoiled long weekend.) I stayed with friends instead, and enjoyed more desserts!

DSC_0176Shameful confession: I haven’t entered the Peninsula Manila until that night. I love the interiors – very classic!

DSC_0177With my backpack – oh don’t remind me anymore.


DSC_0180On my way to the Rigodon Ballroom, I spotted CVS and Events Director Robby Carmona

DSC_0181Polaroid prints – I didn’t have one ’cause I still haven’t changed from my supposedly “travel clothes”



DSC_0184I was getting drinks for Nina, who was a finalist for the Tatt, when I saw someone gracefully enter the ballroom. OMG! It’s DCF‘s Lori Baltazar! I could not tell you how freaked I am, actually we were both freaked out. Apparently, she remembered my blog about my Tatt bets.

DSC_0187Of course,  I didn’t let the opportunity of taking a photo with THE Lori pass – yes, even with the dorky work clothes. After this shot, I realized I should change.

DSC_0194Tonyo‘s latest article from the Asian Correspondent.

DSC_0196Maria Ressa. She had a really nice speech about social media, actually very geeky. And she also had a funny blunder on presenting the Thought Mover award when she announced it even before presenting the finalists’ video. She’s really funny and I love her voice *fanboy moment*

Last week was so epic!!!

Been one of a hectic week, been running around the metro for errands, work, personal stuff, and our event at Moonleaf Tea Shop. But what the hell, it has been so productive and fun! I’m sick for today though, I have to focus getting rid of this flu before I embark on other projects at hand. Also, I will blog further about last week’s events. My backlog is growing like it’s on chlorella.

Sieze the moment!
