12 QUESTIONS WITH SAIRA – A CHRISTMAS BLOG

Are you ready to get to know more about our Image model, Saira Margarita Mendoza? Here we go!

1. How’s married life so far? Can you tell us about your adjustment as a wife?

Married life has been so far so good! Both of us are architects so we both understand what each other is going through. We are also working on a few projects together so it’s been work and play for the most part, all in one!

2. How do you balance work and marriage?

Ralph drops me at work every day and sometimes he picks me up, but if he has a late meeting I’ll go home early and cook so that he can come home to a nice meal.

3. We noticed that you love to travel. Is there a specific place you and your husband would like to visit next? Why?

We’re going to Bali for our first year anniversary. We’ve been told it’s a romantic place and we are excited to explore it together!

4. How do you see yourself 10 years from now?

Hopefully with 2 or 3 kids and happily managing my work from home.

5. Where and how would you like to spend Christmas?

We’re spending it with my family on Christmas Eve, then his on Christmas Day.

6. What are you most curious about in life?

Honestly, the fact that we’re so many different people living together in one world and how we have learned to live with each other despite all our differences. Living in a modern world is amazing because we are learning to let people be who they truly are with no judgments.

7. Movies or Musical plays?

Ralph and I are big fans of the rock! Any movie by The Rock entertains us

8. Lipstick or lip balm?

Lipstick!

9. Sing or dance?

Dance!

10. Favorite song?

Too many to mention!

11. Favorite quote?

“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” ―Dalai Lam

12. Lastly, what’s your Christmas wish this year?

Good health for my family and a peaceful new year for everyone!

PORTRAITS OF BEAUTIES: PHOTOSHOOT FOR A CAUSE

What: Portraits of Beauties: Photoshoot for a Cause

Where: Isla le Jardin Town and Country Homes

When: November 28, 2018

Who said bouquets are merely decorative? These beauties can create great impact in the society too! Yes, that’s right!

Last November 28, 2018 at Isla le Jardin Town and Country homes, professional florists, stylists and photographers gathered for a pictorial, all for the benefit of Kristen’s fight against leukemia.

Kay Flowers Manila and Anna York Flowers contributed many luxury Ecuadorian roses and various Holland blooms that were styled on the said day.

This is another successful #AYBrideandBouquet Professional series, a great experience for many floral stylists to showcase their talent and creativity in styling our high quality flowers.

We always enjoy all #AYBrideandBouquet moments, especially as this is for a good cause to help a 4 year old with leukemia.

We are thrilled to join #kirstenstrong #photoshootforacause with the generous hearts of the #Pampangaweddingsuppliers to benefit Kirsten, a brave little 6 year old (same age as my son!) with leukemia.. . . It was a happy and beautiful photoshoot with glamorous makeup artists (including my inaanak @shaynegpunsalan) as bride models. I met so many of my cabalen, all successful business owners at such a young age. Congratulations ms Hershey Mayrina @candiesandthemes and #PeabohDavid for spearheading this. 📷 @Paolofeliciano. . .

ROSEAMOR UNBOXING CHRISTMAS PARTY

What: Roseamor Unboxing Christmas Party

When: November 20, 2018

Where: Wack-wack warehouse

Are you feeling the Christmas vibe already? Great! Last November 20, 2018, our sister company, Kay Flowers Manila had their Roseamor Unboxing Christmas Party! It’s the last one for this year.

Dra. Anna York was joined by World Foremost RoseAmor Expert and Former Creative Director of Forever Rose London (one of the biggest companies in the world), Mr. Glen Guttierez, who is originally from Cebu city, Philippines.

They were on IG and FB live. And yes, Maayong Buntag, #gwapa Cebuanas, and hello to everyone!

Styling is easy if you have someone to teach you on what to do and what not to do, but if you are alone? Unless you are brilliantly creative, you might actually get stuck thinking what your concept will be.

This is what Mr. Glen shared to us during the FB and IG live. He designed and styled the Roseamor Heart rose and other Preserved Ecuadorian roses with passion, dedication and love. It may be simple, but then simplicity that’s done right is what makes a lot of things truly special.

We hope that you enjoyed the live video! And thank you Mr. Glen for sharing your knowledge to us! 

Contact us at 09175354765 for your orders of these gorgeous Preserved Ecuadorian Roses. Hurry and order today! We have a lot of colors available. You and your clients are going to love them!

Philippine Ballet Theatre – The Nutcracker

What: Philippine Ballet Theatre – The Nutcracker

When: November 17-18, 2018

Where: Philippine Ballet Theatre

We were so excited to witness PBT The Nutcracker last November 17 and 18, 2018! This show has always been magical. Every year, Philippine Ballet Theatre always makes sure that this performance is something that every family shouldn’t miss. The story is not just entertaining, but it is also very inspiring.

Congratulations to the whole cast for a wonderful performance, specially to Sugarplum Fairy and Little Clara for delivering their characters very well!

Hot Pink and Yellow Ecuadorian roses were given to them, as they symbolize happiness and optimism, two important ingredients of life that we wish for them to continuously have.

It was indeed a superb show and we are always happy to support the Philippine Ballet Theatre and these beautiful ladies who are passionate with their dreams as ballet dancers.

If you loved the luxury flowers, please feel free to contact our helpline at 0995 740 3107 or you can check more choices at www.annayorkflowers.com.

JED MADELA 15th Anniversary Concert: Higher than High

What: JED MADELA 15th Anniversary Concert: Higher than High

When: Nov. 16, 2018

Where: Araneta Coliseum

What could be a better way to celebrate fifteen years of success as a Filipino singer than having a concert at the Big Dome? That’s right! Mr. Jed Madela, singer, recording artist, songwriter, TV host, entertainer and actor made all of us roar in excitement last November 16, 2018 during his 15thyear anniversary concert.

We all know that Jed is one of the best singers in the Philippines, and is known internationally because of his great voice and his accomplishments. He was the first Filipino to win the World Championships of Performing Arts title.

We would like to congratulate him on his success as he continuously aims higher in his career!

We also couldn’t miss the special guests who graced Jed’s concert: The Unkabogable Star, Vice Ganda, who received beautiful yellow Ecuadorian roses. Yellow conveys happiness and we all know that Vice makes us happy all the time (and we just want to say, you definitely deserve the love, Vice!). Ms. Jona Viray also enjoyed her Park Avenue Princess bouquet, while our Asia’s Songbird, Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, received the beautiful Pastel Pink luxe roses.

All the gorgeous Ecuadorian roses are from #AnnaYork. We hope that you loved them!

THE DREAM TOUR: Maymay in Concert

What: THE DREAM TOUR: Maymay in Concert

When and where:

Oct. 19, 2018 LIVE IN CEBU (Hoops dome Arena, Lapu-lapu city, Cebu)

Oct. 28, 2018 LIVE IN PAMPANGA  (AUF Sports and Cultural Center, Angeles city, Pampanga)

We have always been a fan of Maymay Entrata, and this time, we continue to witness her grow as a singer as she recently had her back to back concert in Cebu and Pampanga.

We may know her as the Pinoy Big Brother winner, but Maymay is also a model, singer and composer too. What a talented lady!

During her concert in Cebu, her popular love team partner, Edward Barber gave Maymay a sweet solo pink rose, to be followed by a dozen pink Ecuadorian roses.

When she had her concert in Pampanga, the sweetness continued when Edward gave Maymay, first, a single white rose, to be followed by a dozen of Red mixed with White roses.

We thought it was so romantic! Wouldn’t you agree?
