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.
our big winners
But 10/26/2013 happened… we celebrated as Pinay Curvies turned one! And still, we can’t believe how many kindred spirits supported and came to party with us. Not only that, they showed up well prepared in their costumes! Personally I am still shock about #spookyokenight, all the crazy dance moves, ultimate singing showdown and rapping (yes we had a rapper that put pinky lips Ms. Minaj to the grave!), the unpoised hurrahs and syempre “kinabog si Naomi Campbell” poses. We were party animals and supermodels in our own little ways. Seriously, I cannot count anymore how many times I laughed hard, made an omg-is-that-me poses or danced out of craziness that can dethrone Miley Cyrus as twerk queen! Last Saturday was just too overwhelming that writing about it now makes me more excited for next year!! Maybe if Barney Stinson was a guest, he would say – ” Wait for it… Leeegendaary!!“
It is amazing how time quickly passes by, as if it was just yesterday when Lorna and I started exchanging sweet thoughtful comments and encouraging one another through our personal blogs. Now, there’s this fun-loving community Pinay Curvies, who keeps on re-affirming to us that the standards of real beauty is not based on body sizes and definitely not based on a glossy yet often photoshopped sheet. True beauty is based by our inner personality, on not being afraid to show confidence and bravery of accepting who we really are and being damn proud of it, just like Lorna preached in this post. Indeed we’ve come a long way after 4 events, we made friends more than we’ve ever expected, landed on several interviews / features and all won’t be possible with your time, effort and support, so thank you very very much!
Moving forward 2014, we envision bigger bolder events and inspire mooore curvy Pinays out there! And if you happen to be one of them reading this post now, send us a ping to our fb and twitter page, drop us a mail at [email protected] or pinaycurvies.gmail.com or just attend our next events! Please, please we like you to stay connected and be part of this amazing community! So, can we count you in??
