An Intimate Birthday Party Of Elites International Talent Lue De Guzman

Throwing an in-person birthday party during a pandemic can present considerable challenges and may attract some "NOs" from invitees for valid reasons of course, but celebrants along with trusted party organizers have all gotten creative in ensuring a COVID-friendly celebrations. For sure, the guest lists are limited to a smaller group but that doesn't mean that the fun will be cut short. 

I'm happy that I got to attend the intimate birthday party of a friend and renowned jeweler Lue Reine de Guzman last weekend and for the first time during this pandemic, I got to enjoy food (Japanese cuisine) and drinks with other people again (in the safest way as we are all fully vaccinated). 

It’s a far cry from the gravity of birthday parties we had before pandemic. But I think it was more special now to celebrate such milestones in our lives. 

Her favorite people in attendance include Elites International Management's pool of talents - actress/host Daiana Menezes, Manhunt Philippines 2019 winner Daumier Corilla and Elites Godfather Martin Bellosillo.

It was a great time of laughter, catching up and karaoke singing. Lue was such a pro singing Smokey Mountain's hit "Paraiso." 

There’s no denying that 2021 has been a challenging year. So, when you or of someone special's  birthday rolls around, we want to make sure it’s still a special day still. As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to evaluate the best options to keep the people we love safe while enjoying being together in a feast. As Lue mentioned when I asked her for her birthday wish, without batting an eyelash, she just wishes world peace and everything goes back to normal again. 

Happy birthday my dearest Lue!
