“Live life and enjoy it. That’s the real key to beauty!” Michelle Visage

An exquisite dinner celebration in honor of the elegant Best Dressed Women of the Philippines (BDWP) chairperson and Angola Consul Helen Ong was recently held at Phoenix Court of The Bellevue Manila in Filinvest City, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.

The lovely consul was surrounded with so much love and adoration from her longtime friends from the diplomatic, government and business sectors.

At the dinner, guests indulged in a sumptuous Chinese lauriat.

It was truly an evening of friendship and celebrating the life of a well-loved mother, friend and philanthropist.

Many happy returns, dear Helen! Friends for life

Minerva Tanseco recently gathered her lovely group of friends called the “Everybody’s Group” to celebrate the group’s ninth anniversary at Ayala Seda Hotel in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.
