All We Need is Love

“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”-Mother Theresa of Calcutta

I started my post with this saying since it really is difficult if the people around you does not show any affection at all.As adults, we might associate this mostly with our significant others but for little kids,affection from parents would really mean the world to them or would be a great factor during their growing up years. If love is not there, then these children would end up as orphans and no one will mold them to be better individuals.You might wonder why I'm saying all these. Reason for such is that my office mate/ friend invited us over to attend a benefit concert and the Beneficiary is the SOS Children's Villages Cebu,  an organization which provide homes for abandoned children. I didn't have second thoughts when he invited me over since profits for the concert will go to kids who didn't experience being Loved by their parents.

So here are some highlights of the concert:

               Invocation: they made use of microlight gloves to put emphasis on their hand movements

                        The Cebu Male Singers - a singing group in Cebu in which my officemate was part of

                     The Voice of Cebu -another group of talented singers served as a guest

                                Director of the SOS Children's Village expressing his gratitude

                                  second from the left is Marlowe-I'm a proud friend!:D
we had a hard time taking photos of him since he was right beside the conductor so this pic I consider as an epic shot!tehee)
 Two of my fave songs of the night were:


                                                    officemates: PeejaySue and Aura also took part of the event

One of the highlights of my weekend was an invite from my sister to attend the Waves Bar Opening at the Shangrila Mactan Resort and Spa. It was a private event and the company in which my sister works was one of the sponsors(they sponsored wines)

                                              our youngest sister, Dothy with our Ate Joe

                                                  it was certainly raining beers, wines
                                                                       and vodka to name a few...
which was really good(I think I was able to finish 4 glasses of the raspberry vodka!lol)-well I guess "good" was an understatement huh?!hehhehe

                                                                  the men behind Waves Bar
        One of the activities for the night was bar tending which were joined by 4 people in which Karla Henry, beauty titlist, was one of them.There were 2 participants per table but they were judged individually.Guy in black(top right) won the contest. He was given an overnight stay for 2 at Shangrila Hotel.

                                                                             The judges


             closer look at the raspberry vodka which the Waves bar named The Flirt and again it was heavenly . It was so fruity so you can hardly tell that it's an alcoholic drink if you won't ask what is it that your'e drinking..hehehhe

                                                                 Ate Joe with hubby
                                                                    Jay and Moi
