Manila Hotel's Centennial Ball: Celebrating 100 Years of Filipino Hospitality and World Class Service

      Hi lovelies, how's everyone been doing so far? I love the weather, it's the time wherein you go straight under your blankies and cuddle your soft pillows, not to mention, the perks of class suspensions :P Anyhow, a backlog of what happened during the Centennial Ball of Manila Hotel last July 04, I was one of the chosen by Tim Yap to get invites at the ball with my date Brian :) Attire for the ball was Filipiniana, imagine how I went hysterical on contemplating what to wear since I got a notice only a night before the ball itself, luckily I have my friend to the rescue and I was able to borrow her dress,( shout out to Jenny!). 

        Here's what took place on the event:

        We were guided by an usherette to lead us to the hall, the pathway was too long and I really love the red carpet feel before entering the party crowd, the place was decorated with white cloths and gave its guests such a subtle refreshing vibe.

        The Philippines' iconic Manila Hotel celebrates its centennial anniversary this year. The beautiful California- Missionary styled building designed by Architect William Parsons officially opened its doors on July 4, 1912. This first-class premiere accommodation was the first in the Philippines and was the choice of the affluent tourists who visited the country. 

The hosts that made the Celebration Livelier: Angel Jacob & Marc Nelson 

Guests in their Filipiniana attire
Our table, classic wine glasses and utensils
 The Menu for the night
I love this Sorbet!
My favorite dish, the fish is so delicious!

      After the dining proper, a toast was given by the owner and founder of Manila Hotel . There was a jam-packed of media capturing every moment of the said event. The ball also showcased different cultural dancers and served as a highlight of the party to dance the night away.

And as for me, Brian and my outfit, I wasn't able to capture much so please forgive me :) My feet was aching because I am wearing a 5-inch heel.

       Again, thank you Manila Hotel and cheers to 100 years of Filipino Hospitality and World class service!

The food looks very lux. Also, you look gorgeous in your Filipiniana outfit. :) Hahaha I know what you mean about 5-inch heels. They can really kill your feet! :D Glad to see an institution like Manila Hotel still standing up to this day.
