Famous beauty physician Dr. Vicki Belo launched her latest project at the Cameron Room, Essensa East Forbes Building at the Fort.

Called Sexy Solutions, naturellement, the set of machines is Belo’s masterful take “on how to lose the unwanted pounds.” It is “the most efficient and truly effective way with a noninvasive/nonsurgical formula,” she explained.

Theme of the launch was “Happy New You.”

The room was transformed into an eye-catching, fun New Year’s Eve bash, complete with party colors and gorgeous décor, superbly done by master floral designer Robert Blancaflor, no less, palanggas.

Belo, with her daughter Cristalle Belo Henares, welcomed the high-profile invitees, who were treated to a yummy healthy buffet lunch care of Sexy Chef, with supervision of in-house nutritionist Nadine Tengco.

The whole happening, dahlings, was conceived by Belo’s brilliant corporate imaging and branding consultant, Jojie Dingcong, but of course, ’di bala?

Sexy Solutions’ endorsers were Raymond Gutierrez and stunning Georgina Wilson. Raymond showed his slimmer, buffed-up physique—“a testimonial that along with sensible eating habits, exercise and the help of Sexy Solutions’ fat-burning machines, an ideal body weight can be achieved,” explained Cristalle.

The mother-daughter tandem talked about “the numerous benefits” of Sexy Solutions for men and women.

“Depending on the candidate’s body weight and fat percentage, a particular machine is assigned to target the problem areas head-on,” said Vicki.

The mother and daughter said Sexy Solutions would boost “the appeal of the nonsurgical machines, especially for those who are looking to lose those last few pounds.”

The last part of the event was awesome. Four gorgeous sexy hunks in swimming trunks—John James Uy, Gerard Sison, Paul Drake and Luis Decena—entered the room to the gasps of “wow” by the women, and gave away Belo Sun Expert goodies to all the delighted guests.

Swooning over these perfect male specimens—now that was brunch with the most delicious dessert without gaining those unwanted calories!

Thanks to Sexy Solutions, naturellement, palanggas.

HSBC holds fun run

Can you believe, dahlings, that the world-renowned HSBC has celebrated its, take note, 136th anniversary in the Philippines?

HSBC celebrated the milestone with a fun run which had thousands of participants pounding on the asphalt jungle to support HSBC and this year’s beneficiary, Sa Aklat Sisikat (SAS).

TONY Cripps, president and CEO of HSBC Philippines, and Alice Cripps lead Fun Run 2011.

Naturellement, tall, handsome and brilliant HSBC president and CEO Tony Cripps, with his attractive wife Alice beside him, was there to lead the run.

“We are extremely pleased with the turnout of this year’s fun run, close to 3,500 runners, which was our maximum capacity,” he said.

LIZZIE Zobel of Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation takes part in the HSBC Fun Run.

“It’s gratifying to see so many here to celebrate this milestone with us and am happy to let you know that 100-percent of your support goes to a truly worthy cause, which is to help Filipino children achieve their dreams.”

The fun run raised over a cool P2 million for SAS Foundation, one of HSBC’s longtime partner NGOs.

Over the past eight years, SAS had benefited over 650,000 students, 9,000 teachers and 285 principals all over the country, “through their reading programs and pioneering workshops for principals and teachers,” said Cripps.

The run involved adults (who took part in the 3K, 5K and 10K categories) as well as children 12 and below. The run began at the SM Mall of Asia at dawn when Cripps fired off the gun to signal the start of the 10K race.

“Seeing thousands of people first stretching and then running in those stunning Josie Natori singlets was an unforgettable experience,” said Johanna Garcia, HSBC’s head of communications and corporate sustainability.

“It really showed how powerful a partnership could be that brings together Natori’s creativity, SAS’s commitment, HSBC’s support, and finally, the enthusiasm and passion of all our stakeholders.”

Amen, dahling.

At the end of the run, Tony said, “It’s been a great year for HSBC, Asia’s strongest financial brand. Bringing this event is our way to celebrate that.”
