Schedule for the day was go shopping from 1:00-1:55PM, attend iWhite Event from 2:00-3:45, catch my 5:00PM OM class in UST and be home by 7:30. I left the house at 1:15PM, and that automatically cancelled my shopping plans. It was raining while I was inside the cab. Thank goodness the driver wasn’t 1. a maniac or 2. a hold-upper. The radio was playing really old songs so thank God for my iPhone (which reminds me I have to update my playlist!) It took me 40 minutes to reach Anapolis Road. And that cost me PHP 200.00. If the driver did not turn left and ended up on a dead-end road, I could’ve saved myself about 5 minutes of time.I did not have any breakfast, and I felt the urge to eat something while in the middle of traffic along Greenhills—so I reached for my 80-calorie cereal bar inside my bag. This thing is evil. Hell yeah it contains 80 calories, but when you eat 10 it’s not going to be the same. So better be careful, ladies! “A moment on the lips, forever on the hips…”I arrived at Papa John’s at exactly 1:55PM. That gave me 5 minutes to spare to re-touch, and climb the stairs. So you can say that I arrived EXACTLY on the dot. Which was funny because they were all looking at me when I stepped in the venue. All I could say was, “iWhite Event?”My view from my seat. I was alone for a good 15 minutes.Laid the earcuffs that I would be giving to Achi Char and Janica courtesy of my sister’s booming online business. Aren’t they pretty? My sister’s coming out with a lot of new designs! And I feel very privileged to be able to use them firsthand. The facial area. One of the organizers invited me to try their masks out, but unfortunately I didn’t because I was wearing makeup.After about 15 minutes, people started coming in! Here is a photo of myself with Mich (whom I fondly call ‘beautifulloft’) and Achi Char.Achi Char looked positively radiant in her white off-shoulder top and her circle lenses! Appetizers were laid on the tables as we were finishing with the “games” prepared by the iWhite Team. They served potato wedges, bread sticks, and sauces. I loved the potato wedges. The breadsticks tasted good, too! I was expecting mozarella cheese to ooze out, but to no avail.The event started, and the iWhite team handed out paper bags filled with iWhite products inside. A powerpoint presentation followed after the giveaway. As usual, everything informational will be posted in my beauty blog.Here I am with Achi Char posing with Jalapeño peppers.
The sister I never had! Check out those lenses!Got the earcuff [which I left behind during the LuLu shoot] back from Achi Char so I decided to wear it.The same lovely ladies I attended the opening of Etude House with! Ann looked gorgeous as ever! I missed her! Here is Michelle of Beautiful Loft. I bet she’s going to laugh reading this. Isn’t she pretty? I love her short hair! Fits her perfectly. I first met this girl during the Beauty Bloggers’ Meet Up in Metro Manila.Ann looked perfect in her ensemble. She is as usual, her sweet self!I rarely remember people, but this girl I did!!! Apple Calimbas (right, Apple?) Her face is very familiar from my timeline in Twitter. She is soooooooo pretty, I tell you. Charles of WickeRmoss! Yes, the same sweet woman who gave me the EOS lip balm and the top from Amour! Look at her. Doesn’t she look adorable in her outfit?A photo-op with the president of iWhite Korea together with all the other bloggers. Not a very nice shot, but thanks to one of the people from the iWhite team for taking this for me.Ira and Janica finally arrived after 10 years! They were caught in traffic and the heavy downpour—but look how gorgois they look!!! Ahh…such a perfect couple.I knew it was going to be a fun afternoon with my LuLu ladies!I made Janica try out my earcuff in here. I wanted a photo which my sister could use to blog about. Suits her perfectly, methinks! Again, the living doll!!! Gorgois! A photo of the four of us after everyone else have left. Ira’s really tall! Janica and I both wore floral printed dresses! Achi Char is married, can you believe it? She looks so young ha!The variety of pizza that were served by Papa John’s. I had two slices, I admit. And I barely remember what they were. They tasted awesooommme, though! Achi Char and I shared this serving of penne pasta with all that jazz. Nothing out of the ordinary, I must say.Unlimited iced tea drinks for everyone!Here’s a scoop of chocolate ice cream for dessert. Although I promised I’d stick to my diet for 5 days.
Restroom break. And you know what happens in there, ladies! We take about a million years to retouch, and take photos, too!The rain was pouring and it was only I who had an umbrella. So the four of us decided to sit outside Papa John’s and wait for the rain to let up. I had a great talk with my girls! If we weren’t discussing serious business stuff, we were laughing our heads off with Janica’s “may snake pa ako!” statement! You should’ve been there.How gorgois can this girl get?! We had fun with my Fotolr app in my phone!Ira’s BlackBerry and tattoo.The living doll.Achi Char had to leave a few minutes after, and we thought that the rain wasn’t going to stop anytime soon so we crossed the street and headed to the shopping center.
Here I am while waiting for Janica who was in the restroom. Would you look at the woman behind me? Hahaha.
Had to leave Ira and Janica about 20 minutes after since it was getting “late” in my mum’s time. I didn’t want to line up at the end of the taxi bay because there were a LOT of people. I figured, why the hell would I wait at the end of the line when I could score a cab if I walk a little further…
I had to walk around and I spotted an empty cab who fortunately saw me signaling and stopped at the side of the road. What luck! If I lined up I would probably still be lining up till 9PM.
A little Fotolr shot inside the dark cab. Thank God again that the driver wasn’t 1. a maniac or 2. a hold-upper. I got home safely with the meter hitting PHP 170.00
Beautiful, beautiful day.
P.S. A formal entry regarding the iWhite event and the products will be posted in my beauty blog shortly.
