diet update and overflowing work-plate

Contained Cravings

Here’s an update on my dieting efforts (After Six, after all, is an effort on my part, haha!):

Nights on After Six: Five

Weight lost: Hmmm… I didn’t weigh myself at all on the get-go of this “project”. I would only keep track of the developments with the thinning of my stomach.

Missed dinners: Night 1 – Adobong Pusit; Night 2 – Inihaw na Bangus; Night 3 – packed crew meal during the Citibank-Chopard Event at the NBC Tent; Night 4 – canapes and other pass-arounds during the Book Launch at Rustan’s Makati; Night 5 – Hmmm, I wonder what’s cooking tonight.

Slips and Sins – Haha! Okay, despite announcing to everyone at work that I haven’t gone down the slope and eaten something after 6pm, I have, well sometimes. Night 1 – five Danish shortbread nuggets; Night 2 – a handful of Tostitos with salsa dip; Night 3 – clean slate; Night 4 – just ONE canape with feta cheese and cucumber; Night 5 – clean slate.

Full Plate of Work, Work, Work

After handling the publicity for the Citibank-Chopard event at the NBC Tent last week, there are more chunks of work to do spilling off my plate:

August 25 – At Home with Rustan’s. A presentation to top-tier customers of the refurbished Home Floor at Rustan’s Alabang. Alabang! Just the thought of it weakens my knees. Inviting press people to hike all the way to Alabang is next to impossible.

September 15 – Montblanc-European Chamber of Commerce Fashion Show. Just need to draft and dispatch a pre-event press release so Montblanc afficionados would troop to the ECCP Fashion Show to buy Montblanc writing instruments, leather goods and timepieces.

September 21 – Swarosvki Fine Jewelry and Home Decor Show. Help colleague Inigo drum up publicity for the launch and presentation of Swarovski’s jewelry line for women and crystal decor for the home. Meet for the third time Swarovski Singapore’s execs. Shout out to Mabel, Samantha, and Iris!

September 24 – Tiffany & Co.-Lulu Tan-Gan Fashion Show. Major publicity campaign for the collaboration between iconic Tiffany & Co. jewels and local label Lulu Tan-Gan, from press invitations, media coverage, press kits and gifts.

October 1 – Montblanc Ladies’ Accessories Worldwide Launch. In sync with collection launches across the globe, the Philippine launch will happen in Ayala Musuem. In its diversification project, Montblanc launches a jewelry collection for women: rhodium-plated sterling silver pieces, from rings and earrings, to bracelets and necklaces. Major publicity campaign, again.

Heaven, help me!
