I remember one of the funny moments during the event. It’s become customary to ask all our media guests to have their photos taken at the photowall. I told one of our younger media guests, to have her photo taken at the photowall and the suspended airplane. She said: “What what?! How?” Me: “oh just go there and our photographer will take your photo!” She said: “How?!” (While holding her hand to her heart, wide-eyed) 😂😂😂 And it dawned on me how I just asked her to climb the suspended World War I aircraft and realised how funny the instruction was.

How to know you are loved? When people go to your event in far far far away places!!! 😊❤️THANK YOU (a million exclamation marks!!!!!!!) SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED and braved the traffic to join us! We highly appreciate the presence and every single post in social media to help raise awareness to this restoration project. Swipe photos to see old and new. We usually do not on-board clients that are outside Makati and BGC. Because of heavy traffic, and so much time is spent on the road, and because we need to go back to our children fast after every meeting. THIS project is an exemption. Mainly because we believe in the vision and thrust of our client to start restoring old Manila and hopefully make it into a heritage city that contributes to the tourism of our country. So many beautiful architecture and old buildings in this neighbourhood!!! Visit them on weekends if you’re scared of weekday traffic! It’ll be worth your family day trip :) There are over 20 colleges and universities in this area. If it is safe for the students, it is safe for you too. This 1946 Laperal Building, now called Youniversity Suites and LA Village, has been restored incredibly! Beautifully! From old dilapidated building to an 85-room-student-residences and a commercial 4-storey building behind it aiming to improve students’ lives and conveniences. During the initial tour given to us by one of the owners, I got goosebumps. Because he told us the history beautifully!!! He lived the times when Manila was still great. And I realise, I am one of the many Filipinos who does not pay so much attention to my own heritage and history. I sing so many praises of all the other countries I have lived at and visited. But Philippines, it’s easier to compare with other countries and harder to see all the good things. The owners’ passion to RESTORE, and give us yuppies and next generation a glimpse/reminder of the former glory of old Manila, and start a restoration movement that hopefully the rest of building owners in the area would follow, is really a dedication. Takes grit and courage to see the project thru considering all the challenges in Manila. (Cont. in comments)
Walking on sunshine ☀️💚🌴
Today’s agenda. Do nothing 😂🌴☀️
El Dorado Resort. Beach front. Have you seen the cartoons El Dorado? Very apt to name this resort El Dorado!!! Coz it’s very lush here and there are many sceneries and landscapes that are El-Dorado-ish 💚
Smoking mountain on one side, beautiful river on the other side. Only in Dumaguete. We are yet to discover another Philippine province with these natural wonders.
Absolute MUST HAVES when you’re travelling our tropical country. Because insects are everywhere. Our first 3 days, the kids don’t have bites. Only last night. Weather must be changing again for the bugs and insects to come out and start biting. These #BABalms #BalmAroundBalms have always been very helpful and reliable. Maybe I should start packing @anagutch’s home-made katol too. We brought insect patches, lotions, etc. And we still get insect bites.
