Cosmo Skin recently threw a birthday bash for its much beloved Cosmo Skin Collagen and Cosmo Skin Glutathione endorser, Ruffa Gutierrez. Held at the very tony and exclusive Papermoon Milano at the Knightsbridge Residences in Century City, Makati; the ever youthful and glamorous daughter of Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama. --much to the amusement of her friends (and early birds) Alice Dixson and Donita Rose, who came at least half an hour early.
As expected, her trademark “Grabe!” (meaning: seriously, awesome or a combination of both) were the first words that she uttered upon entering the restaurant where her friends were waiting. The celebrant eschewed the usual short program of greetings and instead went directly to the different tables to exchange hugs and kisses from her friends and family.
Among those present were her parents Eddie Gutierrez and Annabelle Rama; (as mentioned) Alice Dixson and Donita Rose; Vina Morales, Maricel Laxa Pangilinan, Anthony Pangilinan and the legendary Mother Lily Monteverde, who quietly slipped into the birthday celebration without any fanfare. Also present were the children of showbiz personalities, including Ruffa’s very own daughters, Lorin and Venice Bektas; and Donny Pangilinan (the son of Maricel and Anthony).
The CEO/Founders of Bargn Farmaceutici Philippines Co.—Nino Bautista and John Redentor Gatus—were likewise on hand to greet the birthday girl who they then presented with a huge bouquet of roses. The bouquet was eventually placed alongside the three-tiered birthday cake given by her Cosmo Skin family. Incidentally, it was BFPC’s Nino Bautista who personally chose the menu for the evening—along with the wines and spirits that complemented them.
With mom, Annabelle, coming from the Rama family of Cebu, it wasn’t surprising that political figures will be present in the party, with Cebu City Mayor Mike Rama and the Chief Legal Counsel for the President, Salvador Panelo dropping by to greet Ruffa—despite their busy schedules.
Indeed with food and wine overflowing, all the guests had a wonderful time with the celebrant who literally glowed, beamed and sparkled (could it have been the result of Cosmo Skin Collagen and Cosmo Skin Glutathione?) the whole night. It was only after midnight that Ruffa eventually took leave, before smiling at everyone and sweetly saying, “Bye.”
No doubt, everyone’s waiting for next year’s Cosmo Skin birthday bash when Ruffa turns even more fab.
