It's another rendezvous to remember from Belle de Jour Power Planner.. :)
The event was held at the newly-opened Ace Water Spa in Pasig. I know the place coz I used to work in the Pioneer area. Event started at 10am and ended up by 4pm. Seen old and meet new faces.
For early birds like me, I got the chance to seat in front (para daw mas mabilis umaksyon sa mga games at prizes..). I was one of the few people na nakatapos agad sa human bingo. Ito yung may hawak kang isang piece of paper na may mga boxes filled with descriptions (like, im wearing blue shoes, im friendly, my name starts with the letter A, etc) and all you have to do is to mingle around with the girls and have them signed up. Basta dapat match sa descriptions sa box. It's fun and at the same time, chance to meet other fellow BDJ girls.

The rendezvous talks mostly of our dreams and the ways to achieve them. When we dream of becoming someone or having something, we must work on it. The process is not that easy and may take a while but it doesn't mean it won't happen. By having the will and determination, every dream, big or small, will eventually come into life.
The speakers were all well-noted, famous on their chosen field.
Mabel Reyes (Work Your Way Up: A Career Bella's Guide) shared her humble beginnings up to where she is now. She'd gone on different countries and met different people. She wanted everyone of us to have a concrete plan on what we really want in life, be it short-lived or in 5 years time. We usually have the tendency to aspire for something but how will it materialize without working on it? So you write on what needs to be done and provide timelines for it. This way, you'll be able to track where you at from your goals.
Jill Ngo-Crisologo (Cash in Your Passion: Love it, Earn from it) of the Peak Performance shared her passion for dancing. Her forte is belly dancing. She knew that dancing is her passion. She never had any hesitations pursuing her passion, regardless of her mother's disapproval. She tried, oftentimes failed but never stopped. If you really want something, you'll do whatever it may take to land on it. They key is to brave the challenges. If you're not brave enough, you're not going anywhere.
Bianca Valerio (Image Matters: Look Good, Feel Good), a noted model, host (FASH), make up artist, online style columnist, blogger and personality development speaker. One fab girl! She shared her personal tips on good grooming and posture, on the do's and dont's in fashion and some pointers on building your confidence. Honestly, I got starstrucked when I saw her. She is so beautiful. She seem to be intimidating but she is not, she is friendly and very down to earth. She believes that looks really matter. Given the inner beauty that we have, let us not shed time to not focus on our physical beauty. First impression still last. As simple as making your face steer clear of any dirt and pimple-free is enough. And as simple as standing and sitting the proper way means a lot to someone.
Foods served were delicious and tons of prizes were given away. I don't think anyone left without a prize? Games and activities promote camaraderie among bellas. The event was such a blast.
