Ito Curata and Bob Miller Host Rene Puno's Birthday Party

It was a gathering of close friends at Ito Curata and Bob Miller's designer home in Ayala Alabang for dear friend Rene Puno who was celebrating a birthday. Bubbly and wines were overflowing which kept the spirits high all night long. Ito Curata's culinary talents came into play as he laid out a 5-star gourmet dinner for his guests. According to Bob, he even went to the market to make sure that all the ingredients were fresh. He was well rewarded for his efforts as guests came back for seconds and thirds.

Talent was in abundance that evening.  The surprise of the evening was Ricky Laurel who sang acapela in his tenor/baritone voice some memorable songs from the Broadway play My Fair Lady.  GF Yoly Ayson said, "how can one not fall in love with him!" indeed!  The Puno Brothers Rene and Dody rendered some songs and New Minstrels' talent Ding Marcelo, Rene's band mate once upon a time also delighted us with a few numbers. 

Ann, Rene's deliightful lovely wife, led the ladies to dance by starting a cha-cha number. She was so contagious and vivacious that the ladies could not help but follow suit. What a fun evening of good food, entertainment and caring close friends!  To my BFF Rene, here's wishing you all the best and more birthdays to come.
