The very popular Monterey meat shop is now present in our island paradise Boracay by popular demand, dahlings.
Its grand opening was graced by San Miguel Foods Inc. president Rita Imelda “Tatish” Palabyab, Abigail Yap, wife of Boracay Mayor John Yap, and Vice Mayor Ceciron Cawaling.
The grandioso happening was kicked off by a motorcade led by B-Meg Llamados team manager Alvin Patrimonio and a drum and bugle corps. Vacationers and residents alike were thrilled to see their idol Patrimonio at close range.
Unique highlight of the launch was the meat-cutting ceremony. Doing the honor was Palabyab and Albert Rosal, owner of the shop. The cut revealed an embossed letter “M” in the meat; meaning Monterey but of course.
“A world-class beach like Boracay deserves nothing less than the premium meat that is Monterey,” Rosal said to much applause.
For her part, Palabyab said, “Monterey’s mission is providing the best meat with the highest quality and standards, and it is now available in Boracay.”
The Boracay meat shop, said Rosal, will push Monterey’s thrust for the year, its “Know Your Meat” (KYM) campaign, which supports the National Meat Inspection Services’ “Chilled is Fresh, Chilled is Safe” campaign, natch!
“The KYM advocacy aims to increase awareness on the safety of the meat we buy, from the breeding of the animals to proper slaughtering, and blast chilling process, until it is laid on the dining table, given the increasing concerns on hygiene, sanitation and safety of the meat we buy.” said Linda Santiago Legaspi.
Then it was time to sit up and take notice of San Miguel Purefoods Culinary Center chefs, who gave practical kitchen tips and yummy recipes.
Capping the night was an awesome fireworks display, palanggas.
New fashion collection
It was an awesome rainbow of gorgeous colors that dazzled fashion lovers when SM unveiled its latest Ladies’ Fashion collection during the end of Philippine Fashion Week at the SMX Convention Center, natch!
Getting rave reviews from fashion watchers was the four-part suite covering resort, corporate, party and evening fashions.
Oozing with feminine panache, the casual and resort lines were in bold and knockout prints in asymmetric shapes and eye-catching silhouettes, dahlings.
Corporate fashion consisted of electric mix-and-match outfits, which enhanced power dressing, while graphic, black and white prints added daytime drama.
Judging from the applause, the favorites were the tie-dye cover-ups, scarf-print trousers, black-and-white silhouette dresses and glittery Peter Pan-collar tops paired with sexy lace hot pants. Wow!
The outfits were so sexy that somebody from the crowd remarked, “Those women who wear those backless dresses that go down to there want to catch the eye of the men, but most of the time all they catch is a cold.”
Moving on: One of the show’s highlights were some instant fashion bloggers who took to the catwalk and provided a fitting climax to the Girls/Teens segment, palanggas.
Judging from the incredible crowd, SM Ladies’ Fashion was definitely attuned to the pulse of fashion-conscious Filipinas, who are forever on the lookout for practical, everyday ensembles that suit their quirky moods yet are easy on their pockets.
Now, ain’t that so the SM way, di bala, dahlings?
SM Ladies’ brands—Coco Cabaña, Weekender, NY Square, Blanc Et Noir, Philosophy, Folio, SM Classics, Studio, Redhead, Shopaholic, Soiree, Betty, Dollhouse, Onion Laundry and True Love—are available at SM Department Stores nationwide.
