Before I end, please allow me to greet our dear friend Jose “OUIE” T. Badelles a very happy birthday. Ouie is the very affable Marketing Communications Manager of The Cafe, Hyatt City of Dreams Manila, and has become a dear friend of Kap’s & mine through the years. Literally in sickness & in health. ;)


Ouie recently underwent an AngioPlasty procedure and is now back to his top form -dancing footloose in his spare time. Still with the biggest (but now also the healthiest), bravest heart. <3 #PusoNiOuie2017


I cannot worship her enough. My baker friend Sharon Banocnoc of BAKERMOM SPECIALTY CAKES always outdoes herself with each creation. Just look at the effort she made for the Pug cupcake because I told her how much Stitch, Ouie’s pet, means so much to him. <3 Thank you dear Shawie for making our birthday boy happy. :-*
