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

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!
