Simbang Gabi at Kasalan

One of my best girl-friends Sheila and her hubby Mike's brainchild, the McDonald's "Simbang Gabi" TV commercial (which aired late last year) won not one, not two, but three awards at the recently held Creative Guild Awards: Best in Art Direction/Production Design, Best Cinematography, and the coveted TV Ad of the Year award. They're also the winning team behind the mega-popular "Karen po" TVC. Galing nyo talaga!

My claim to fame: I was part of their 1997 wedding's entourage, naks (:

Arn and I attended yet another wedding fair, our second for this year, at Le Pavilion last weekend. We love going to these events because (1) admission is free (for engaged couples); (2) discounts are offered when you book on the spot; and (3) freebies are free-flowing! (Freebies could mean anything from video samplers on vcd to trips for two to HongKong -- although the latter does not sound like such a good idea at this point yeah?) If you're on the lookout for cool wedding-related ideas, I recommend that you attend at least one of these fairs. The next big one is in July, I think. Better go to w@w for up-to-the-minute news.


my sister was at that event. congrats to the mcdo ad! the team did a fabulous job with that one. :)
