I’ve never been a party girl but I do like dressing up. I always have -even as a plus size later on in life. So whenever the occasion permits, I try to look nice & dress to the nines.
However, Kap is a different story. He is the down to my up. The low to my high so to speak. :P As you know, he’s very simple & low key, and he tries to get away with dressing as ruggedly as he possibly can. Hanggang makakalusot. Ang resulta, hindi kami photogenic together!
For Hyatt City of Dream Manila‘s first year anniversary, we received an exclusive invite to join the HCOD family for a night of fun & merriment, celebrating it’s milestone.
Now I don’t know why I didn’t think ahead & seriously plan my OOTD (or more appropriately, OOTN – outfit of the night) to think the event was in celebration of a very special occasion! I think I’m just overly comfy & at home with Hyatt City of Dreams Manila that I don’t see it anymore as a hotel, but as a second home. Hence the comfort-zone levelz.
So we dressed ruggedly – me in black leggings & a new top with comfy fitflops that matched it hehe (I knooooow!) and Kap with sneakers that also matched the color of his shirt (ganyan talaga ang mga tumatanda. Color-coordinated!), we braved the traffic & headed for Hyatt City of Dreams Manila.
While stuck in a vehicular war zone, I started looking over Instagram & searched for the hashtag #hyatt1 to see what’s going on & what I’m missing because the cars ahead just weren’t moving. Lo & behold, I see the men in tux & the ladies in beautiful cocktail dresses. My eyes bulged! Noooooooo. I get a chance to dress up & I’m actually dressed down. Then I turn & look at Kap. And this time I really scream out loud. NOOOOOOOO. Kahihiyan kami ng Ayala Alabang. And so, we made a u-turn midway & headed home to change pronto! The peacock’s plumes thy tackle must not fail!
Hyatt, City of Dreams Manila
Kap & I agreed to make a dash & meet downstairs in 5 minutes. I hurriedly changed & stopped dead in my tracks when I saw him. Really? Nagpalit ka lang ng sapatos at nagpatong ng jacket na may buwayang logo, spiffy na yan??? But there was no time to spare as we were to head back out to the carmaggedon. So I let him be. Anyway, what’s important is that I look fine & dandy. Bahala na sa kanya si Batman! :P
Thank you so much Francis, Ouie, Josh, and Hyatt City of Dreams Manila for letting us be a part of your happy milestone. I have to admit though, after that dance number, we can never look at you gentlemen the same way again! :-*
