Ballet Philippines and Belle De Jour Fair in Just One Day

Attending two different events in just one day could be tiring, but the time spent had been really worthwhile.

[October 25 morning at CCP]

With 8 tickets that I've won courtesy of Getzmo, my family watched Ballet Philippines Tales of the Manuvu at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theater. It's amazing watching a musical journey for free together with my daughter, my mommy-lola (grandma), my sisters, my sister-in-law and my niece.

This famed neo-classical dance has aspects that can be compared to ballroom dancing infused with Latin influences, which shows graceful and lilting movements, and the theme of romantic waltzing of love explored.

The show culminates in a contemporary production of Alice Reyes' groundbreaking pop-rock opera ballet, "Tales of the Manuvu" which features the OPM hit song, "Noong Unang Panahon." This is based on the Manobo myth of creation.

Acclaimed singers (Robert Sena, Guji Lorenzana , Banaue Miclat, etc.), soloists from the UP Concert Chorus and the Makiling rock band performs to tell a tale that touches on our origins, our nationhood, our love of and appreciation for the primal powers of nature, our mortality and the separation of Heaven and Earth.

[October 25 afternoon at BDJ Fair in Eastwood City]

Belle de Jour launched its 2010 Planner with its first-ever fair entitled “BDJ Fair: Exceeding Boundaries: Give More, Live More!” It's an exciting day filled with fun, treats, lots of activities and interesting talks. The event doubled as a fundraising activity for the rehabilitation of Ondoy victims.

BDJ participants get to participate in the event festivities such as the Hatha yoga class (which we failed to take part in), the BDJ Scavenger Hunt, and a Fashion Show.

The event kept everyone informed through the talks with experts on beauty and fashion as well as accomplished women in their respective fields. Topics which include: Create your Brand in the Workplace, Reach for the Skies, and Break the Fashion Rules, Debunk Beauty Myths.
