RAISE A GLASS TO DAD

Esquire (Philippines) - - NOTES & ESSAYS -

Fa­ther’s Day came around again last June and to cel­e­brate, Esquire Philip­pines joined up with The Peninsula Manila for an af­ter­noon of good drinks and smooth mu­sic at Sa­lon de Ning.

Dads and their fam­i­lies came through and were treated to their pick of an ar­ray of ser­vices on of­fer: a hair­cut, shoe shine, or a spa treat­ment; plus an open bar and beats by Or­nusa Cad­ness. On dis­play were a bunch of your dad’s fa­vorite things: cus­tom time­pieces by Un­done Watches, In­dian mo­tor­cy­cles, and shoes by Sa­p­a­tero. Be­hind the bar, we had fine Teel­ing whiskeys—sin­gle grain and small batch—poured by our friends from The Cu­ra­tor, all knocked back in good com­pany. Among the guests in at­ten­dance were Globe Tele­com Pres­i­dent and CEO Ernest Cu, The Peninsula Manila Gen­eral Man­ager Mark Choon, pho­tog­ra­pher Fran­cisco Guer­rero, Ja­son

Mag­banua, Kim Atienza, and RJ Ledesma. Guests kicked it at the Globe Plat­inum lounge, too, where we all got to en­joy the af­ter­noon with our fam­i­lies. All in all, it was an ex­cel­lent way to cel­e­brate a truly spe­cial day that we must al­ways take to cel­e­brate the most im­por­tant men in our lives: our dads.
