I got to know Joy through her husband Jeff, who’s my friend from college. Jeff and I were both cheerleaders in Ateneo, and it’s nice to know that he met someone who’s as crazy with basketball as he is. They met, get this, through Twitter. Talking about Glee. How’s that for a love story? This got me thinking. Joy, how will you tell your story to your grandchildren 30, 40 years from now? “Nakilala ko lolo niyo sa Twitter, yun yung uso dati eh, kailangan lahat ng sasabihin mo hanggang 140 characters lang…” and then proceed to explain how a hashtag works. #LoveOnLine? Possible!

Malou (And Why Jo Rubio Should Do Your Wedding Gown)

Malou, as you’ll see in the photos below, is a classic Filipina beauty. With her amazing morena skin and modelesque height and features, she can easily represent Philippines in Ms. Universe. Move over Shamcey! It was a breeze doing her makeup because all I really needed to do was simply enhance her glow.


I rarely talk about other wedding suppliers here in my blog at length, but this is the least I can do for Jo Rubio, wedding gown designer extraordinaire. I first worked with him  about 3 years ago, and it was always good to know when a client of mine gets him to do her wedding gown because Jo’s creations never fail to impress me and anyone who sees them. They’re always impeccably created and detailed, the result always romantic and ethereal. I guess he likes my style too, because he has referred me to several of his clients who asks him his advice on who to get as their makeup artist. It’s too bad that I can’t do the same with him because whenever brides-to-be have their trial makeup with me, they already have a wedding gown designer. So, to brides-to-be reading this and who still don’t have a designer in mind, please do me a huge favor and consider Jo Rubio !

To Diamond
I said before that I truly felt bad for you after my blog post went viral.  It was never my intention to cause you so much pain.  I sympathize with you for all the negativity hurled on you by the people who read my blog post.
I pray that you’ll be able to move forward after this.
