CFB at Nine

Our Cebu Fashion Bloggers Anniversary might just be my most favorite dinner party up to date. We were all dressed in the most gorgeous medley of earth-inspired hues and surrounded with the most picturesque view. It was indeed the most perfect anniversary celebration.

Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa ushered the dinner with fresh flavors of seafood, in a beautiful clambake spread. The whole Shangri-la team made extra effort in putting up a gorgeous beach theme made with their handmade decorations and even styled the warmest and coziest set-up with a touch of rich beach tones that perfectly complemented our medley of earth inspired resort wear. Shangri-la didn’t disappoint in turning the Ocean Pavillion into the most beautiful ambiance after it rained that afternoon. We took turns taking photos while staring at the entire reception with awe and delight.

Cebu Fashion Bloggers with the General Manager of Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa, René D. Egle.

And to match our theme, Shangri-la prepared the most sumptous Clambake and Seafood Spread paired with their best house wine and drinks and when you talk about wine, everybody then relaxed and enjoyed the night away.

It was a night of fun and surprises. We took turns talking about our history being a member of Cebu Fashion Blogger and a flash throwback for the wonderful memories the past nine years. It was one for the books and Shangri-la Mactan surely made it extra special. It was the perfect night to get together with good friends/bloggers matched with the best food in the most intimate and luxurious resort in Cebu.

We would like to thank the entire team from Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa for being such a lovely host. Everything was perfect since it was also the moment we met their newest General Manager René D. Egle who has talked with so much passion and amazing plans ahead for Shangri-la.

Our heartfelt gratitude to their talented Banquet Manager Neldon Rivera, for doing a remarkable job and putting his personal touch with the entire set-up especially those dainty dreamcatchers.

And props to their well-trained team for taking care of all our needs and for understanding our natural state, especially their General Manager René D. Egle, Ms. Cassandra Cuevas, Ms. Jacque Bulawan, and Ms. Feirlyn Decasa for giving us the chance to celebrate our 9 years.

From fancy dinners and romantic dates, Shangrila offers a lot of dining options and they can add their personal touch too.
