A Baby Shower for Isabel 

The countdown begins. #BabyTrebolisComing 😜

I’ve known Isabel for many years now, we both can’t even recall exactly when or how we met but it must’ve been at a shoot or at a show, and it was most likely over a decade ago.

Isn’t she gorgeous?


Isabel and I used to travel together every year (was it 3 or 4 straight years??) and all I remember was that it was all a breeze!  We were always moving on the same pace. We got dressed in 15 minutes, we enjoyed long walks, we shopped.. We were always on time. But more than that, she IS my soul sister.. You know those moments where you don’t even have to say a thing? She totally gets it!

Well, now she’s married to Fean Trebol, and they’re finally having a baby! (screamsss!!!) And i, being the excited friend that I am, thought that it was time to throw her a shower.

What better way to celebrate than in this awesome Presidential suite at EDSA Shangri-la Hotel!

Check out this amazing dessert buffet!

Too pretty to eat!

What’s a party without balloons? Thanks to @Wrapitup_ph on Instagram for this beautiful setup.

What’s a shower without games? Aaah, so much fun & laughter- my tummy literally began to ache! Thanks for being our game master, Aryn!


So competitive and serious! Hahaha. Our first game was to match the celebrity parents with their kids.

Next, was to guess how big Isabel’s tummy was!


Then my personal fave, PINOY HENYO. (Heads Up in English! Haha I think! =D ) We had words like “CONTRACTIONS”, “BREASTS”, “SEX”, it was just too funny!!! Bianca Valerio stole the show! Hehe

Time to open presents! Woohoo. I personally enjoyed this part, just because I love baby stuff! It was also fun seeing the items we picked together at Rustan’s & Pottery Barn for her registry.

Edsa Shang’s Presidential suite was the perfect venue, as we all had enough room to eat, to play games and to just hang out comfortably, with privacy and excellent service.

And that’s all of us with our loot!

Each of us got a box of goodies from Beauty Bar!

..Flair Blow Dry bar also dropped by with a bunch of GC’s for us- and Burt’s Bees spoiled us with some of their top products!


Our good friend, Bubbles gladly donated unlimited yoga GC’s for our raffle prizes! How lucky were we!?

@RichEarthJewelry also made some beautiful pieces for Isabel and 2 lucky guests! Love this homegrown brand.


Thank you to Aimee & Inah of EDSA SHANGRI-LA for working so closely with me and making this all possible! You ladies are amazing!
