The Belo Medical Group recently held a twin event at Makati Shangri-La’s Rizal Ballroom—the birthday celebration of its founder, Vicki Belo, and the launch of its non-surgical face-lift service, Thermilift.
Welcoming guests were the event hosts, Tom Rodriguez and Vicki’s daughter, Cristalle Belo Henares, no less.
Singers Regine Velasquez and Martin Nievera performed select numbers, the latter serenaded Vicki with her favorite, “Be My Lady,” and a medley of his other hits.
Beautiful flowers arranged by Robert Blancaflor adorned the Rizal Ballroom; a photo wall was festooned with blossoms for the arriving guests.
On hand to show their love to Vicki were her boyfriend Hayden Kho, ex-hubby Atom Henares, son Quark, close friend Jojie Dingcong, and Belo endorsers Iza Calzado, Rhian Ramos, DJ Tony Toni, Isabelle Daza, Christopher de Leon and 1973 Miss Universe Margie Moran.
Also present was Dr. Brian Kinney, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills who led the team that developed Thermilift and who trained the Belo doctors for the treatment.
A Rockeoke session followed—Vicki and Atom sang “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” while other participants received special gifts after singing on stage.
The newly opened Makati Diamond Residences recently invited select guests to sample its Champagne Everyday buffet.
Served with premium grower champagnes from brands like Jean Vesselle and Delamotte, the buffet spread included foie gras macaron appetizers, a raclette station, a pasta station featuring Spaghetti Bottarga with garlic and olive oil, a carving station with cochinillo, along with main courses like rib-eye steak and baked sea bass with a delectable homemade ice cream for dessert.
The guests were warmly welcomed by PR and marketing supervisor Karina Leal, and guest service manager Aileen Tan.
The promo consists of the Tapas and Champagne buffet, available for P850 per person, Monday to Friday, from 6 to 9 p.m.; and the Weekend Champagne Brunch buffet, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
