From Pre-Wedding Worries to Bridal Wisdom

For a girl, as far as milestones and special occasions go, nothing tops a wedding—especially, if it’s your own. 

And when it came time for Precious Pasia to walk down the aisle, her goal was to live out the dream, which was made possible when she won the Colgate Optic White Dream Wedding Challenge.

Precious, who joined the contest as a bride-to-be shared her wedding woes online like the flower girl refusing to walk during the procession or someone spilling a drink on her wedding gown. Her candid answer evidently struck a chord with the public, allowing her to win a rare chance to have her pre-nup shot by acclaimed lensman Pat Dy and wedding documented by famed videographer, Jason Magbanua. 

Today however, the happy new bride seems to have put all her worries behind her. And after finally tying the knot with her husband, Precious is all too eager to share her newly found wisdom for future brides, hoping to give them one less thing to worry about. 

For starters—

“…Plan. Kahit wala pang husband,” she laughs. “Start your Pinterest board, research your suppliers, have pegs in mind so that during planning time, you won’t have a hard time.” 

Precious shares that she started booking her church and reception venue as far back as two years ago, because she just really wanted everything to be perfect. Even her wedding dress, went through a lot of back and forth with a couple of couturiers before it “felt right.”

And then there’s the part where you want it all documented for posterity, which is where the dream wedding duo of Pat Dy and Jason Magbanua comes in. Known in the country as prime picks for anyone’s pre-nup and/or wedding day, Precious makes her desire to have both acclaimed artists document her wedding no secret. 

“Having Pat Dy for my pre-nup and Jason Magbanua at my wedding was really a dream come true,” she adds. 

And for all the frenetic planning that came with making her wedding day meaningful and memorable, having Dy and Magbanua immortalize the moment meant she didn’t have to worry about not having her special day captured on film and video; after all, these are the kinds of memories that you will want to share for generations to come. Having the best people capture each moment means having less worries and more  beautiful memories to treasure forever.  

But now that she has lived through the experience of planning a wedding, here’s what Precious has to say about it: 

“At the end of the day, having all my family, all our families, and loved ones present became the most important thing for me on my wedding day,” she confessed. 

That, and making sure that she could actually enjoy her wedding and stop worrying about the little details that could potentially ruin her big day.

Leading up to the special occasion, Precious made sure that every single thing was in place—from her wedding dress to her smile. 

“I went into just as much effort to ensure that my dress was perfect to making sure that I had the perfect, white smile to go with it on my wedding day—a task made all the more easier with Colgate Optic White,” she shares. “After using the product for a week, I really saw a difference, my teeth became whiter. And that gave me the extra confidence I needed for the big day.”

On the groom’s side, Aljoe says that couples must always try to prepare together. “Be enthusiastic about the plans and be collaborative; expect conflict to arise but just try to think positively.”

As for the bride’s biggest wedding worry? Precious happily reports that her husband was eagerly waiting for her at the altar—and that’s definitely something to smile about. 

Colgate Optic White promises to give you one shade whiter teeth after one week* so you have one less thing to worry about on any occasion. Try it now!

Celebs Start the Year Healthy with Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus

With the holiday season now over, it is time to get back on track with our diets after the hearty fare of the Christmas and New Year celebrations.  The simplest way to shed the excess pounds brought by the holiday feasts is to eat meals that are healthy like seafood.

A superb way of bringing fish to the dinner table is with Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus. This tasty treat is made with a whole bangus that has been prepared with utmost care to keep its freshness and sweet flavor and will surely delight the whole family.

Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus was specially concocted by renowned celebrity chef Reggie Aspiras, assuring homemakers of a choice product that is fit to be served in any fine dining establishment. It comes in three sizes to suit your needs: 800 grams, 1.1 kilos, and 1.3 kilos. A whole fish could easily feed a party of 12 diners, depending on the size of relleno you choose. The whole bangus is stuffed with a savory filling of fish, sweet potato, bangus belly and shrimp.

Actress and TV host Regine Tolentino likes the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus because it makes her feel full, and it comes in a ready-to-cook form.  She says, “I just have to take it out from the freezer and heat it, and my family has a delicious and healthy meal.  Given the kind of busy schedule I have every day, which leaves me with no time to cook or make relleno from scratch, the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus is like an answered prayer for me.”

When it comes to her diet, Regine consciously stays away from fatty foods and certain other foods, such as rice, bread and pasta, which are all forms of carbohydrates. She eats a lot of vegetables, which have become her rice, and keeps her meat consumption to the minimum. For her protein, she goes more for chicken and fish, and Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus has become her favorite.

Meanwhile, model-turned actress Marina Benipayo likes the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus for two reasons: first, it is baked and not fried, unlike other rellenong bangus; second, it cuts down considerably on the fat without sacrificing flavor. In fact, you can indulge on Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus and not feel guilty afterwards.

Marina and her relatives enjoyed the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus in one reunion.  She enthuses, “They said it was the best Rellenong Bangus they ever tasted because it was so full.  They could really see the peas, carrots, and all the other ingredients. The flavor is there.”

Marina shares she grew up with a diet rich in fish, chicken and vegetables.  In pot lucks, where other visitors brought fatty main dishes composed mainly of meat, she would bring salads.  Faced with buffet spreads, she stayed away from red meat and opted for fish.

Fisher Farms grows its milkfish in the pristine seawaters of Pangasinan in fish cages for a sweeter, more flavorful, firmer and cleaner fish. Only high protein feeds are given to farmed fish to produce high-quality fish meat. Fisher Farms’ Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus is available in leading supermarkets in Metro Manila and around the country.

Pretty in Pink

Hello loves! Here's what I wore to the Lazada event a few weeks back. Donning the comfiest clothes in my closet cause I took the MRT that day lol. These pants from Forever 21 are probably the cheapest and most comfortable pants that I own. These are only a little over P400 pesos. I got the one in petite size and the fabric's stretchable. The only downside is the hip area doesn't fit me well. Nevertheless, it is still a good buy.

Bellast.com necklace, Charles and Keith bag, Forever21 pants, Casio watch from Lazada.com.ph

The top, on the other hand, is actually my sister's lol. I have the same design in a different color though. My sisters and I share clothes most of the time cause we all have the same body size. I'm just tad smaller than them. :p Anyway, I love how this color somewhat gives me a glow. I really believe that wearing pink makes one look and feel prettier in an instant.

This bag from Charles and Keith is one of my favorites! It's quite heavy though and I am scared of putting something heavy in it because it might lose its shape. But I love the structure and color of this one. It matches well with my sandals, too!

Hype this look!

Anyway, these photos were taken at Perea and for some reason I felt like a legit fashion blogger in these. :p I'm still practicing the no smile look fashion bloggers have, but I don't think that one's really for me. I like smiling with my teeth on my photos. Hope you like this look!

Thank you Mommy Jen for these photos! :)

XO, Mish
