There is an ongoing controversy about the opening of SM Aura in Taguig but allow me to launch this rather belated photo chronology of its opening last week which was the most star-studded I’ve seen in recent years (with no less than Hollywood A-lister Sarah Jessica Parker attending)
The Philippines’ richest man Henry Sy (in wheelchair) was there with son Hans and other members of the family to inaugurate their latest mall together with senator-elect Alan Peter Cayetano and Taguig City Mayor Lani Cayetano (in pink). Amid the fanfare about SM Aura, it makes me wonder how they are all going to solve their problem with the Bases Conversion Development Authority.
I was in a click, click! mode as I saw Gretchen Barretto descend the escalator with daughter Dominique.
Model Georgina Wilson gamely posed for a photo as she waited for her turn to see Sarah Jessica Parker in the SM Prestige Lounge holding room.
Vibrant in green: beauty queens Venus Raj and Marie Ann Umali.
At the after-party where champagne and Johnnie Walker flowed freely, pretty actress Carla Abellana was hanging out with her female friends.
Joey Mead-King was the emcee for the Sarah Jessica Parker presscon. I guess this is what you’d call “fashionably thin” I remember the time when I was awkward kind of bony and wanted to drink 2 liters of Mosegor for instant effect (get a little meat). Now that am comfortably fat, I want to get it all back! (the bones, I mean)
