Look at these happy faces! I had such a great time with these girls on my belated birthday celebration that I threw last April 30. As you may recall, I chose 30 of you to go on a special dinner date with me. (I apologize for those who couldn’t fit into this photo.) I promised I’d blog about what went down so here it is. Do forgive me for the delay. We took so many photos that night that I had such a hard time choosing which ones to post.
The venue–Early Bird Breakfast Club at Century City Mall. This restaurant couldn’t have been a better fit. I love breakfast food so it’s perfect place to spend my special day with you guys. The interior of the restaurant is lovely as ever as well.
Here are the little goody bags my sister helped prepare for my dates.
So what’s inside the goody bag? All the things a girl like me would want like Olay Total Effects Anti-Ageing + Fairness Cream, Vidal Sassoon hair treatment, Goody hair accessories, Melissa gift certificates, Rabeanco wallet, ZA True White set , Majolica Majorca lip gloss and SM Accessories keychain!
First thing on my agenda? Attendance check. I wanted to make sure all my girls were present–old school roll call style. I can finally put a face to all the names I’ve been seeing here on my comments section!
Time to eat! How cute is Early Bird Breakfast Club’s newspaper menu?
The chef preparing our dishes. He was such a hit with my girls. I think I even saw some of them blush. LOL!
Our yummy appetizer, warm asparagus salad.
While we devoured our sinfully delicious meals, all of us chatted about our lives and random thoughts. Imagine 30 girls together. Of course, we were a bound for a lot of story-telling!
Our main dishes are ready, the Adobo Sunrise…
…and some salmon. Doesn’t it look heavenly? Wait until you see what’s for dessert!
Tada! Chocolate and Giner Torte, anyone?
And now, for the big reveal, I, together with my app developer Digital Media Ph’s Patrick, presented the rough version of my then to-be-released mobile app (which you can already download on Google Play and the App store). I really wanted to present this to them first so that I can get their input. Without them, my app wouldn’t be as awesome as it is now.
That was surprise #1. Surprise #2 was that I had more gifts in store for them! We played a few games and raffled off these prizes from Sm Accessories, Olay, Vidal Sassoon and Melissa (not in this photo but those Melissa slippers were definitely the most sought after prize).
Everyone wanted the Melissa slippers!
As if it wasn’t enough that Early bird Breakfast Club was gracious enough to host this dinner with me, they even surprised me with a birthday treat!
I wasn’t the only one giving gifts. My dinner dates were all so thoughtful and gave me some too! I totally didn’t expect this but thank you all for the sweet gesture. I love all the cute piggies, sincere letters, travel accessories, dainty decorative items and more.
I brought my 50mm lens with me so we couldn’t fit everyone in the frame. But to my readers who came, I thank you once again for making this date one of the best I’ve ever had. I’ve always wanted to meet you all personally and get to know you more. And through this event, I got the chance to do so. I hope you enjoyed as much as I did. Here’s to more laughter and fun! Hopefully, I get to meet more of you soon. One dinner date at a time, perhaps?
