The party was a good excuse to air out the fab gowns and formal suits. The Abanilla's spared no expense for the party. It was all red carpet, the drinks were overflowing from cocktail until early morning. The food was excellent. I had a fiesta in the seafood section. The flowers was fresh and groaning in large vases around the venue. They had the Kabayao Violin and Piano Quintet (Gilopez & Corazon Kabayao with their kids Siciliene, Farida and Gilberto). They had a mini-Broadway excerpts by Maestro Gerardo Muyuela and some of Iloilo's finest performers. They had a smashing band for dancing. It was fun, fun, fun. Beautiful guests. Thank goodness almost all the guests followed the dress code.
