ive been there and back
lately, things were so in place. like stellar like wacky. grooming ourselves for the best supplement cover, we first went to meet(thats me and emily) Dexter Alazas the mighty to ask permission so we could use Nikki Taylor as our cover model for the Health BEauty and wellness supplement. i wasnt able to believe at first glanced of the situation, since Nikki is such a busy entity. We know, since shes into photoshoot and TV and school, i envy her shining capacity. When we got the nod from Dexter, prob was the locale... then our prowess of speech led us to Shangri-la Resort and Spa via the communications assistant manager Lesley Tan and Carla Kiamko Sun.star's very own advertising consultant. Now, the second problem arises when Jessie Glova(yes the filthy rich) make-up artist dons a wedding in Manila and we have to find a perf day to fit in his sched. Whilst on that point of negotiations our dear Joseph Ong couldnt make it since hes a busy working guy and at the same time, left for Manila to do a commercial shoot with Angel Locsin, Haay! i was in a noseblled mode to negotiate and coorrdinate the best people for this cover shoot. Soon, Sun.star chief fotog Alex Badayos gave in to do the shoot and Jessie is available by Monday. The third prob was, i was confined in the hospital for flu, i stayed there for 4 days and the doctor wants me to stay until monday! Noh, i will sign a waiver just to be on the shoot for monday" as i explained to Dr. Jason Cabahug who is so nice that he let me go and i left a waiver signed for North General Hospital. I was still sweating and everytime im exposed to the sun i hyperventilate. God knows i felt tired and still sicky on a sunday night. Monday came and everything was well coordinated by Emz and Jello, calling everyone who took part of the shoot and i discovered we are such a handfull of talents. Proving to a large scale production that we can move around with 6 hands combined and three brainers on the loose, hehehehe. I was happy to know that Kamiseta provided the outfit and Emz brought her HAvi's to compliment the beach scenario. the shoot started at 4:30PM and ended just right on time. A half hour make-up and 45 minutes of the photoshoot, less hassle and the model was a perfect match to go. She is no ordinary, a light mode in her and makes every click worth the while. Lesley Tan was so nice and accomodating that she fills the room with a glow and a lot of laughter and expensive chat about cosmetics and the brushes. Jessie made a perfect stroke for Nikki and the assistant changed the hair in an instant glam look. The moment i said " It's a wrap" was a chill on my spine to see everyone was a handful of goodies. the day ended a dinner at Casa Verde with chat from our past according to Jessie Glova as we were so crazy on our high school days. Well we are so fortunate enough to be where we are now and proud to say... it pays to be out!
