The attack of Typhoon Ondoy in the country especially in Metro Manila taught a lot of Manilenyos an important lesson in terms of choosing the location of our investments, stocking some food for emergency, staying at home to look after your properties and your family’s safety and much more. Since I came from a city where typhoon strikes at least twice a year, I can say that I am already used to this scenario and up to this day, I am still amused on how my fellow Pangasinense can cope up with such unfortunate events (will write more about this on my upcoming blog post).
Since I am working for an entertainment tabloid, I am updated with what some of our favorite local celebrities did in order to help in rescuing our kababayans who are seeking for help.
The person whom I truly admired during the Typhoon Ondoy relief operations is Angel Locsin. We all know that Angel had been active with such activities ever since she was still the reigning queen of the other station. This time, she initiated her own relief operations in different places including Payatas. She also asked some of her friends from the Kapamilya station like Zanjoe Marudo, Shaina Magdayao, Serene Dalrymple and Maricar Reyes to help her out distribute goods and work on the clean up drive. Truly, Angel is a real-life superhero.
I was invited last February for the launch of the Ipanema echo-chic Gisele Bündchen Seeds Collection. I remember watching the Philippine Ballet Theater members perform a very colorful presentation wearing the newest Ipanema flipflops. In the said event, the organizers announced that they have a joint project with Haribon Foundation called ‘Walk a Green Mile”.
So I went to Le Souffle that hot Saturday afternoon and met up with some of my blogger friends who, like me, wanted to spend their weekend doing something really productive and at the same time, exercise LOL. I was there as early as 3:00 (though I thought I was late ). I saw a lot of volunteers and kids who are willing to walk and contribute something for the Haribon Foundation.
“I went to Ipanema last February 19”.
Nah, I’m not talking about the beautiful place in Brazil. I’m talking about the launch of Ipanema echo-chic Gisele Bündchen Seeds Collection at Le Souffle, The Fort. Several bloggers were invited in the elegant event.
The Philippine Ballet Theater gave a long yet wonderful performance with them modeling the newest Ipanema flipflops.
