They say six years is all you need in order to make significant memories in a lifetime. And so it was one fine evening when Baby Cruz Vasquez and Cory Quirino decided to relive one of their memorable gatherings during their beauty pageant days. Past queens and princesses were more than happy to come together for one nostalgic reunion.
Baby’s place, which often was the venue for many fine-dining experiences, was dressed up for the occasion. It was elegant, to say the least. Nana’s Kitchen—owned by Baby herself and had its soft opening in Molito, Alabang—tastefully prepared cocktails like foie gras, cheese and caviar as well as a buffet spread of salmon and juicy steaks.
Beautiful was the one adjective to best describe the evening, what with the presence of so beauty queens like Gwendolyn Ruais, Queenierich Rehmann—who did her beat box talent—and Hillarie Parungao who had a grand time re-uniting with princesses Ross Mosa, Zahra Saldua, Mia Howell, Cassy Naidas and Vanessa Wright.
Baby’s hubby, Danny Vasquez, helped in welcoming guests namely Panama Ambassador Rolando Guevara who was at one time the Judge for the Miss World Pageant and Comelec Chairman Andy Bautista, to name a few. Jeff Lee flew in from Malaysia to render several songs for the special occasion.
Catching up on life can make for an interesting evening. For Cory and Baby, it was a walk down memory lane.
The feeling that night was one of family. And it was contagious—we all felt the authentic sincerity of closeness, which made us all, understand the meaning of gratitude. This, because ‘thank you’s’ were profuse and so were the gifts that guests took home. Baby is truly a perfect host.
