The year 2016 started really colorful for me. Too colorful that I didn’t know what to do with it. It is too much to take. Not that I am complaining but I just can’t believe that something wonderful like this can happen to an ordinary girl like me.
Just to share you my first event in 2016. Last January 9 was really memorable for me. I attended the World Poker Tour Pool Party event for poker players. The event was held at the Solaire Resorts and Casino Pool Club.
The party is overflowing with drinks and pica pica’s. I got ot myself 2 glasses of beer, 2 red wines, 1 vodka and 1 white wine that made my stomach churn a bit. I was really tipsy but I ‘m able to manage going home. Who can resist those overflowing drinks!
I made sure to talk to people I don’t know. Mingled with strangers and sparked up nice conversations with them. I always believe that when you consistently do this brave thing, your wisdom and outlook in life changes. It’s like exploring the world without actually traveling. A person would relate some story about a certain place, and then your mind wanders and try to imagine that you are there. Also, this way, you gain knowledge on reading a person’s mind. . I love meeting new people from all walks of life.

We also danced the night away with cool EDM music played by our awesome DJs Ron Poe and Those Damn Nerds. Who wouldn’t miss that popular song from Zedd’s “Beautiful Now” which turned the crowd into a wild dancing moment? A lot of pretty women and good looking men everywhere, we cannot help but feast ourselves with some eye candy. A photo booth was also set up where you can take your photos as a souvenir. Got me several photos because I charmed the photographer into giving me extras! We were also given the VIP treatment for we get to stay in a cabana of our choice relaxing with a bottle of wine and enjoying the music and the show.
The event was hosted by Sam YG of the Boys Night Out and Aliya Parcs. This night is indeed memorable and we are proud to say that the Philippines was chosen to have the premier poker venue at the newly-launched lush and upscale Poker King Club Manila, located on the ground floor of the Solaire Resort and Casino, a World-Class integrated resort destination.
