this past weekend the fash pack was in cebu to attend the opening of acqua, the new italian restaurant at shangri-la's mactan island resort & spa. acqua is located at the ocean wing poolside of the hotel, and has a great view of the ocean. (someone even quipped, "wow, it reminds me of australia!") the interiors were designed by the almario sisters, and had their trademark patterns, and touches of cool blues and greens.
the attire requested for the event was, of course, resort wear, preferably in—what else?—aqua. and the cebuanos were all dressed for the occasion. it's nice to know that they also like to get dressed for "theme" parties just like in manila, and we loved seeing all those feminine sundresses, cute shorts, hot minis and strappy footwear. in the middle of all the dark clouds, hard rain and flash floods in manila, it was so pleasant to see the sun, feel the breeze, and be surrounded by such beautiful, smiling, fun-loving people! (we don't know all their names, though, so we suggest you just enjoy the view... :-)
