Can there be anything more fabulous and mysterious, dahlings, than a woman who just turned 50 but still looks 30?
We’re talking about restaurateur Christine San Diego who celebrated her golden year with some 50 close pals. She hosted a special dinner at her penthouse, clad in a white strapless midriff jumpsuit by designer Charina Sarte.
Christine’s current squeeze, German model Kevin Krämer, gazed at her lovingly.
Her youthful physique was very obvious, though dieting was the least of her worries that night.
The Red Dot Modern Japanese Bistro catered the sumptuous dinner, which included Foie Gras and Soy Bean Custard, Linguine with Creamed Uni and Seared Scallops and Prime Rib Roast.
Present at the dinner were Xavier Btesh, Cheska Winebrenner, Joi Natividad, Lara Parpan, Jake Macapagal, Jacq Yu, Ronald Singson, Tim Yap, Aslie Aslanian, JM Rodriguez.
Eschewing the usual themes, Christine instead challenged her guests to come prepared to show off their talents.
The after-dinner party had Pinky Amador, Doran Sordo and Carlo Fornier acting as emcees, with DJs Cao Ocampo and Jimmy “Patch” Gustilo spinning the music.
Among those who sang were Viktoria Agbayani as well as Pinky. Boyet Sison danced a swing number with the birthday girl.
But the highlight of the evening’s talent showcase was a dance number by Carlo Fornier and Fernando Bas that caused a joyful riot as they took off their shirts.
After singing “Happy Birthday,” everyone gamely posed for snapshots courtesy of photographer Raymund Isaac. Looking at the photos made us wonder if these beautiful people got the keys to a hidden fountain of youth.
Cheers to Christine and her youthful energy, wit, straightforward nature, generous spirit and boundless passion for life. Stay gold!
