When Perci Turned 40

TV5 Executive Mr. Perci Intalan celebrated his 40th birthday last Thursday night at Opus in Resorts World Manila. It was a sweet surprise to see his invitation sent in my email. I could not believe it at first but remembering that I'm in good hands with my TV5 big bosses, I know he really meant to welcome me in his celebration. :)

Still, I planned not to go. I knew it's gonna be a big birthday bash with VIPs, superstars and celebrities. But on the day itself, everything's changed. We all have that one person we couldn't say no to. A friend who'd also do the same thing if the tables were turned. I said yes and the rest, I say, is epic. 

What I wore: Red Head body con dress, Janylyn platforms.

The tough decision on what to wear was just made two hours before the party started. And so were my shoes. We all say we can never go wrong with black but I don't want to skip colors since I didn't have any accessories to support my outfit. Good thing I got this LBD with patches of my favorite colors: blue green and purple and my newest craze, color orange. The shoes were a big bonus, too! When attending parties, I don't want to treat my feet cruelly by wearing heels. I will never enjoy a party with my heels on! Wedges or platforms are the best alternatives. This pair was made for my dress! I bought it right away and went to Ate Badeth's place to dress up and put on some orangey-nudey smackers!

Oh by the way, please forgive my awkward smile. Seconds before this photo was taken, I found out that MVP's behind me. I'm too shy to pose in front and behind BIG people.

Some of TV5's cream of the crop! TV5 Heads and managers! <3
L-R (standing): Paul Mata and Peachy Guioguio, Bernadeth Chio and Jeff Remigio. (Sitting): Emmanuel Faraon, me, Ana Perez, Perci Intalan, Joy Aquino, Manny Martinez, Atty. Christine Ona and Chiqui Trivino.

As I've said earlier, this party was epic. And when I say epic, you should know what I mean: I got drunk. My officemates are kind of blackmailing me in a good way, haha, by sending me photos of myself dancing and hugged by my beki friends pretending to be real men! It's an inside joke to call the photos scandalous, but those aren't. Only we couldn't imagine we had captures like that! ODK! 

I got these photos from our official photographer. As much as I'd like to share you my favorites regardless on how shameless the photos are and how funny and appalling (yet appealing) we looked like, I decided not to. :D

With the birthday boy, PMI!

Cathy, Peachy and I.

With my favorite girl, Reich Santos. <3

My dance mates: Ate Badeth, Adrian, Myk, PMI, Cathy and Chuck.

We got Paparazzi-d! 

Tim Yap surprised PMI with a grand entrance. Happy birthday with cake and champagnes!

That's it for now. More photos and longer story to come. I'll save my words while waiting for the other photos from Paul and Cathy (especially my photos with Anabelle Rama and BB Gandanghari)! And yeah, this party has been PEP-ed!
