The instant we saw fashion stylist Mercille Tiomico posted behind-the-scenes photos of stars like Piolo Pascual, Toni Gonzaga and goddess Cai Cortez for her movie project then entitled “Unlove You“, we knew it’s a must-see. And when we heard it’s directed by Olivia Lamasan and written by Carmi Raymundo, we knew it’s something to be experienced and discussed with good friends. Our first event for 2014 is set! Read More
Around this time of the year last year, Mitch and I had just announced that we’re starting 2013 with a swap meet. Looking back, we are teeming with gratitude that we received immense love and support to our events, namely swap meet, quiz night, Juana C. The Movie date, Glam Tales, Spooky-Oke Night and relief operation for Yolanda survivors in Guianan, Eastern Samar, and online gatherings like #UsapangCurvy and Pinay Curvies Swag blog link-up parties. Plus, we even surprised ourselves for surpassing our own target of 4 events in a year! Amazing! Read More
I remember it too well how Lorna and I traversed the infinity lines of MRT, ridiculously tried whatever it fits costumes at Camp Suki and relentlessly hopped from one venue to another completely having no solid plan on how, what or simply if we can pull this bloggiversary bash or not. Coming up with the moolah was pretty much challenging too and quite frankly we were nervous; that was a month ago.
We still can’t believe that we’re turning one-year-old! Imagine, in a few weeks time, we can proudly participate to weekly merriment like #ThrowbackThursday and #FlashbackFriday. Seriously though, it brings us happy tears just thinking that our curvy community seems to be growing tight. In addition to that, the “outer world” recently took notice of our efforts. Read about our features on GMA News Online and POC. Amazing, right?
So, before I get too sappy, let me proceed to our little announcement. We are inviting YOU to join Spooky-oke Night! We ask you to come in your fab costumes (not necessarily Halloween-ish like manananggal or sparkling vampires) and join us sing our grateful hearts out in celebration of our first bloggiversary. It’s happening on October 26th, Saturday, 8pm to 12mn. You can confirm your attendance by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1.) Do we really need to be in costumes?
Yes, yes, yes! The tribe has spoken.
2.) Do we get a prize for our costumes?
Of course! We’ll reward the 1.) best in costume and 2.) best singer of the night with a beso, among others.
3.) How much do we need to shell out?
We took care of the venue rental. Drinks and pica pica will be served.
4.) Will there be a corkage fee?
Unfortunately, there is.
5.) So how do we confirm our attendance? Can I confirm on my gal pals’ behalf?
Send us an email to email@example.com. Please ask your friends to send us their confirmation email individually.
If you have other questions we missed to cover, please let us know!

Successfully convened last 01.20.2013 and clad with tons of fabulous items, ladies definitely had the time of their lives. Personally I super love the idea of having an event like this, as it came up to be the very first gathering among fellow curvy Filipinas. Oh did I say that everyone went gaga with the swapping thing? I’m sooo guilty! I pledged 6 items all being swapped (yeyy!) but went home having more. It was a frugal mega exhilarating way to shop, seriously! But beyond that I had the most treasured moment, sharing stories and laughs with a pool of confident plus size women who are just sooo fabulously happy being themselves. So on for the next swap meet – sure can’t wait! 🙂
Of course doing what we all do best, posing!
