Last week was nothing but showers of blessing. Achi Char contacted me and asked if I could assist her in hair styling for a gig. It’s not totally my forte, but hairstyling is one of the areas I love to experiment and work on. I gladly accepted since my schedule permitted. I woke up at 8:30 on a Friday. I knew I would be battling traffic. I left the house at 10. And after 6 cabs who don’t want to accept rides to Makati, I finally got in one that was willing. Aren’t drivers supposed to accept all destinations? I find it really stupid how they choose where they want to go. Like what the heck, man?
I luckily breezed through traffic and the meter ticked at 130.00 just as I arrived the hotel entrance. I paid 150.00 to the driver—just because. I went up to the Rizal Ballroom where I immediately spotted Achi Char. We were led to a beautiful hotel room.All the work started. Achi Char worked on Margaret’s makeup while I did Cheenee’s hair. We were chitchatting and I learned that the girls we were dolling up are millionaires! They won The Voice of McDonald’s last year and they were gonna be interviewed by Rated K that day. It was really cool!
If you want to see what hairstyles I did for Margaret and Cheenee, go to my beauty blog.
After all the work, we were able to sneak in a few shots together!The Rated K team went in and set up after a few minutes, and Margaret’s and Cheenee’s interview started. Achi Char and I walked to Glorietta to have lunch and dessert @ Tutti Fruitti. It was fun to talk to Achi Char about personal and career-wise things. I really think that she’s my blood related sister, although she’s not. I don’t want to blog about this, but Tutti Fruitti in Glorietta is a bit unsanitary. Let’s just say, I saw creepy crawlies in their fruit selection… Major down points. Never going back there. *No, I did not eat the creepy crawlies…I had to leave right after lunch because I still had a 3PM class to attend to. We went back to the hotel and I changed into my uniform right away. Before leaving, Achi Char, myself and the amazing singers were able to take a few snapshots together! And…Margaret and Cheenee sang for us!!! Goosebumps all the way.I scored a cab right away thanks to Makati Shang’s hotel service. Traffic was horrible. I tried blogging inside the cab, but then I had to stop because I felt dizzy!
I was 30 minutes late for my first class. I felt exhausted. But it was all worth it.
