It was an awesome celebration when world-renowned Nokia unveiled its latest Dual SIM mobile phones, the must-haves X1-01 and C2-00, dahlings.
Moi noticed the invitees were rolling off their chairs and cracking up till the show’s end, thanks to the incredible hosting skills of TV personality Ruby Rodriguez and her “twin,” comedy-bar sensation Petite, no less. The “double Rubies” were in keeping with the dual theme of this super-happening, palanggas.
The Nokia X1-01 and Nokia C2-00 pack more memory, better battery life and tons of SIM entertainment, plus five separate SIM cards that can be personalized with SMS or data settings.
The brand ambassador of the new phones is comedian Vic “Bossing” Sotto.
“Only Nokia can offer Dual SIM phones without compromising on features and fun,” said Nikka Abes, Nokia’s corporate communications manager. “They pack all other exciting features making them doubly fun, and all at affordable prices.”
Twenty lucky guests who registered early got the chance to swap two of their old mobile phones with a brand-new Nokia Dual SIM phone, dahlings.
You’ll absolutely go for it!

Women in fashionable outfits and a handful men had a blast when the Primadonna shoe brand unveiled its new collection during the “Primadonna Girls Night Out.”
During the launch, Primadonna welcomed its new endorser, gorgeous Anne Curtis, fresh from her “No Other Woman” triumph in the box-office.
A total style chameleon, Curtis continues to inspire millions of her followers with her effortless flair for fashion, palanggas. She sported the four looks of the new collection: “Rock and Roll,” bringing out one’s sense of fashion rebellion; “Prim and Proper,” featuring dainty pairs; “Androgynous,” for adventurous women; and Retro, hippie shoes for that sexy, bohemian vibe.
My palangga Divine Lee introduced Anne to the crowd. Asked about her style philosophy, Anne said, “I go for the classic, as this fashion never goes out of style.”

Some people get together lavishly in glitz and glamour, others feast over simple meals shared in one table. Then there are celebrations held for the mere love of that one person you refer to as a true “friend.”
Such was the birthday bash for Arnold Vegafria, palanggas, a byword in show biz where he’s an image maker.
It was superbly organized by his pals outside show biz.
It was his nth birthday bash for the year, in fact, as other groups had treated him already. This time it was held at one of my favorites, Dusit Thani Manila’s excellent Japanese restaurant Umu.
Some 35 of ALV’s closest pals gathered for loads of laughs and for great company, topped off with a smorgasbord of fine sushi, sashimi and robata.
For the perfect ending, sweet awesome giveaways of divine Villa del Conte chocolates were flown all the way from Italy, and distributed to Arnold’s friends by businessman Vince Aldanese, with wife Rhoda Campos of Rustan’s by his side, dahlings.
More than just a birthday bash, it was a celebration of friendship.
