Groom to be pops the question. Happy. Bride to be says yes. Happier. Soon to be bride and groom sets the wedding day. Happiest! Indeed, for all ladies getting married is an epic milestone and having a bridal shower sets the tone for the big day.

The sweetest of them all- delicious cake and cupcakes from Love Viva

The main buffet table has a bit of everything delicious from Japanese and Chinese staples to roasted turkey but the dessert table with the beautifully made floral themed cake and the fancy cupcakes really caught the eyes and the palate of the guests. These yummy goodies were lovingly created by the bride-to-be sister Viva Andrada O’Flynn. Viva is an exceptionally gifted in baking and talented in many ways too.

And of course, there was the Banana Eating Challenge wherein I joined and to my surprise- I won. Yipee!

*The dreaded "Banana Eating" challenge. Why the hell did I join- I have such a tiny mouth and can't barely finish a half banana..haha. (I'm wearing a lacy black dress with pink flowers on my head)

*Picture below shows how hard I chew and almost choke on my big banana. Oh well, gotta swallow the whole bloody thing..burp! This naughty game proves me one thing- that I am capable of enjoying 'huge and long" banana..hehe. (wink-wink)

But the highlight of this event is when Happy Adrada presented her newest Havana Chic Collection. Statuesque models paraded in elegantly designed dresses exuding the vibrant Miami scene vibe. 

Hip, preppy, shabby chic and yet elegant, the models sashayed the runway with their cool Happy Andrada creations wearing Keds sneakers in glittering gold, silver and classic white. Totally hip- totally happy!

Each dress has a unique character in terms of creative design and play of fabric. Colors are subtle in almost pastel hues of rose, pink and beige. The matching accessories on the model completed the havana chic fashion look. Thanks to FLY Shades for the cool eyewear.

And the fabulous bridal shower of happy andrada took us into the night with such fun memories and positivity that anything is possible. Pushing one’s creativity beyond its limit is what this event has significantly taught me. If you put your heart and mind into something then anything is possible.

So grateful for Happy and Viva Andrada for the invitation and for the warm welcome, I rarely attend bridal showers but this one is for the books!

Transforming Lives: The Impact of SM Group's KSK Program on Filipino Farmers

  Farming futures Jayson and Juanito proudly showcase a selection of produce at the SM City Clark’s Weekend Market. While modern agricultural techniques boost yields for some, there remains a number of Filipino farmers who struggle to keep pace. These experienced hands find themselves falling behind in a market demanding higher production, clinging to familiar yet often inefficient methods passed down through generations. One farmer from Pampanga, Jayson Garcia, sought to disrupt this prevailing narrative in his family. He knew that he had to chart a new course forward for his farm and innovate to remain competitive within the rapidly evolving landscape of modern agriculture. “Noon, mahirap ang magtanim,” he recalled their life before joining SM Foundation’s Kabalikat sa Kabuhayan. “Para bang tsambahan, basta pag itinanim mo ‘yan, hintayin mo na lang mamunga. Mas mahirap pa lalo kapag nagkaroon ng kalamidad,” he added.  SM Foundation’s training program focused on high-value crop cultiv

A 15-Minute Tropical City in Pasay

  All within 15 minutes: Urban planning concept city to rise in Pasay For the modern urban dweller, 15 minutes is a lot of time.  A lot of productive things can be done – a high-intensity, interval training (HITT) workout or run a 1.5-kilometer route, clearing your emails, meditating, catching up on the news, or preparing a quick smoothie – all within 15 minutes.  But for the Metro Manila commuter, 15 minutes is barely enough to get from point A to point B. During rush hour, it is most likely that within this time, you still haven’t moved an inch.   Ever heard of the 15-minute city? It’s a modern urban planning concept that puts people and the planet first. The term was coined by Paris-based urbanist and Sorbonne University professor Carlos Moreno wherein he said that the ideal neighborhood or city is built in such a way where work, food, housing, education and cultural activities can be easily accessed within 15 minutes, whether by foot or by using a bike.  An artist’s render of a 15-
