I See Solaire Resort & Casino: Adjacent to the SM MOA

I like the location of this newest hotel-resort & casino in Parañaque City. As per Ms Nina of the marketing department, this is owned by a businessman from Singapore who had a several hotel in different part of Asia. Since a lot of Filipinos likes to gamble, this is a way to make thing legal. This hotel-casino will boost and become the biggest entertainment city in the country. They have a nice interior and unique architectural design all over the area, I saw the Belle Grande Casino stairway going to their VIP Lounge area. They also have the casino boutique, food court and entertainment area for those who love to enjoy music. I can't wait for it to be done like their pool and garden, so I can come again and experience everything.

The Newest & Luxury Mall of SM Aura Premier in Taguig City

SM Aura Premier is one of the best & luxury mall in the country today because of high class interior design & architecture which targeting the upper class and first SM Mall in Taguig City. During my visit to this mall, I noticed that they have a high ceiling, good ambiance and a modernized shop all around the mall. From the outside of this mall, I like the curve shape architecture and luxury window glass building. As per mall administrator, this supermall which will be part of the Bonifacio Civic Center, where some big events, parties and concerts will happen. This is definitely be a talk of the town. 

Sky Park Garden at SM Aura Premier, The Fort in Taguig

It was a Sunday Afternoon day off with my friend "Sally" at SM Aura Premier, located in front of Market Market which is one of the newest and luxury mall in the country. We proceed to the Sky Park Garden, rooftop located at the 4th floor. The Sky Park Garden is similar from the Sky Garden in SM North Edsa, Quezon City. The interior design and garden landscape is more classy, modern & better than Serendra, Bonifacio High Street & Market Market both in Global City, Taguig. As part of the opening of this mall, traffic jams greeted consumers, mall goers & employees everyday & really hard road access in both side of the mall but the area is more accessible to everyone. They offers a wide landscaped open gardens, unique water fountains, over looking condominiums, buildings & modern architecture design at the side. 

At this area of the Sky Park, they will features their own Convention Center named The Aura Pavillion which cater big events, parties & concerts. Well, SM Aura Premier have a great view from the top.

Bench Body Fashion Show 2013 - Philippine Fashion Week Holiday Collection

Bench Body Fashion Show 2013 for Philippine Fashion Week Holiday Collection 2013. Paolo Roldan walked together with other models and celebrities like Jennylyn Mercado, Borgy Manotoc, Philippine Volcanoes, the twins Anthony and David and other local and foreign models. The highlight of the night was the international model Paolo Roldan, a Filipino-Canadian which his billboards at the Guadalupe-Makati Bridge.They occupy function hall 3 & 4 of SMX Convention Center, Pasay City is one of the venue for Philippine Fashion Week 2013. I like the technical effects, graphics and sound technology of the fashion show plus the video projected on the screen make the show more dramatic, fancy and cool. The opening act was so cool - featuring dancers swinging and bending their bodies to the beat of music and patterns projected on screen. The event was too fun and creative, which been off around 10:00pm. We all enjoyed watching the show and until next time for Bench Fashion Show at Araneta Coliseum which big star is gathering every year. 

Meet & Greet with Paolo Roldan during Bench Fashion Show 2013

Paolo Roldan in Manila, Philippines. We got a chance to meet and greet personally with Paolo Roldan , a Filipino-Canadian model as a newest brand ambassador of Bench Body. Did you know that this model posed naked for Givenchy on the cover of Vogue Paris (June 2010). He is very kind man, fluent in English and always smile to his fans. This was our first time to meet this guy, so we decided to take more photos including some of the models and guest like Champ Pio of Hale, BB Gandang Hari, Lauren Uy, Philippine Volcanoes Team, Semerald Twins (Anthony & David), and many more. I know that Bench Body would all proud of it and confidently compete with other international or imported brands nowadays. So seeing Bench Body models during the Philippine Fashion Week 2013 was truly amazing and awesome.

Aliwan means amusement/entertainment or in Ilonggo term " Kailingawan". As we headed to the event area, all seats are occupied by guest and tourist that time, so we didn't able to have a best spot for the event show. For that case, we roam around the event area, to check some souvenir items and filipino delicacy all over the place. I also brought keychain and one of my friend brought abacca slipper. This is a yearly competition in Metro Manila and the Dinagyang Festival of Iloilo City is the best contingent for all the participants.
