friday night

tonight was just too much. there were five events that we were invited to:
6pm - the 6th grand wine experience, new world renaissance ballroom
6pm - launch of richard and lucy's new fragrances for bench, glorietta activity center
6:30pm - G hotel launch, roxas boulevard
6:30pm - launch of frederick peralta's couture beddings, SM makati prestige lounge
8pm - launch of dunhill's three new flavors, NBC tent
any guesses which one we went to? first, we headed to the mall for the launch of the new fragrances of bench husband-and-wife endorsers, richard gomez and lucy torres-gomez. we haven't smelled any of them (the fragrances, not richard and lucy!), but judging from bench's kris aquino scents, they should be good. believe it or not, we actually like kris's "baby me" scent, easy on the nose and quite powdery fresh.
lucy's fragrances—love, forever, remember:

richard's fragrances—conquer, recharge, refresh:

after performances by MYMP, christian bautista, and rachel ann go, the "perfect couple" (as host iya villana kept referring to them) finally showed up. that was our cue to slip out and cross makati avenue to the hotel for the grand wine event, one of the most anticipated wine-tasting events of the year for winos such as us (well, there's still the beaujolais delivery next week).


and look who we bumped into! former model and VJ, now wife and mum, sarah meier! here she is with hubby banjo. don't they make a cute couple? sarah showed us pix of her baby daughter kaya, who is turning one soon. the two now have an events/production company called steak productions: urban lifestyle + music. welcome back, sarah!
