MEGA Magazine’s 10 Most Beautiful, the Launch

Before I begin the parade of features on my goodies from Singapore I really must share about this first, because it’s absolutely way overdue, in my opinion, since last May I attended the MEGA Celebration of their 10 most beautiful women for 2011 at Opus Restaurant and lounge, Resort World, Pasay City.  My first small dose of red carpet treatment, have no idea why my face looks squashed in this photo though, haha :).  Outfit: My tiny Louis Vuitton monogram purse (my one and only major designer bag which was a Lola gift), purple dress by Topshop (worn backwards on purpose), navy button-up cardigan by Mango (my first and only Mango purchase, yes believe it!), Shoes- Renegade Folk pumps (excessively used but they still bring my game on), Costume Jewelry green “seaweed” earrings (unseen) by Butch Carungay of Avatar accessories.

Follow the red carpet into Opus lounge…


I walked in and after a few minutes of feeling adequately dressed but very small and somewhat out of place (I’d never gone out clubbing on a regular basis when I was younger), thankfully a familiar face showed up, my friend and bridal makeup artist Kim Rodriguez of The Beauty Addict blog.

The unexpected surprise was when a TV5 crew suddenly asked to interview each of us about what gadgets and kikay items we had in our bags :).  They also requested to video a full shot of my outfit.

According to Kim I was a bit too animated while talking, well what’s new, here I am holding up my trusty S90 which never ceases to get the “Your camera’s nice, what’s your camera?” remark when people spy the pictures in the LCD, even if it is a 2 year old model.  That bright light behind the video guy didn’t help either…I detest being on video camera, my face isn’t relaxed enough.  The event was the launch for the May issue of MEGA which features all ten ladies, and it’s June already, Juliaaahhh, tsk tsk tsk…lagging behind much?  Even though it’s mid-june I’m sure some magazine stands or stalls still sell lots of back issues.  I got my May issue free in a MEGA gift bag along with heaps of Olay skincare goodies, that I chose to share instead with loved ones at home.

The MEGA May issue with pretty Kim Chiu on the cover is a real good one which is jam packed with product features for beauty enthusiasts like us, a photo spread of Kim Chiu shot by Mark Nicdao (who else?!!), and of course the feature on their ten most beautiful women.


I enjoyed the event even though I hardly knew anybody in there, minus several famous personalities.  It was an honor to have been invited by a magazine as prestigious locally as MEGA.  Find out who those ten gorgeous ladies are and find yourself a copy of the May issue by MEGA :).
