A Merry MIDAS Christmas to One and All!

I love everything about Christmas! It's truly my favorite time of the year.
Being an only child, my family (parents, grandparents, and all my many Titos and Titas) made sure I had the most magical Christmases and lavished me with the best gifts, and the best Noche Buena and Media Noche feasts. I have the most amazing memories of Christmas, so much so that even now that I'm all grown up, I still look forward to the coming of the holidays like a child brimming with excitement!

And so it was a happy occasion indeed to have been invited by MIDAS HOTEL AND CASINO to their Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, officially kicking off the hotel's holiday festivities.
The majestic 25-foot tree of red and gold and the wonderful gingerbread house display served as perfect backdrops for the wonderful program especially prepared by the hotel management and staff to honor friends in media and entertainment.

It was an honor to have been among several online influencers feted during the event!
Just before the tree was lighted, we were called on stage as Midas' resident manager Aris Alcuaz led the ceremonial toast together with other hotel executives including Cielo Ortega-Reboredo, director of sales and marketing; Erwin Dona, associate director for PR and brand; and Mylene Co, member of the board of directors.

Merrymaking at Midas is all about music and dancing and lots of delicious treats and fine wine. Entertainment for the evening consisted of the Ramon Magsaysay Chorale, who serenaded the guests with beautiful Christmas carols while Ballet Philippines presented an excerpt of Peter Pan!
Midas' resident artists Dessa, Jimmy Marquez, Nino Alejandro, and the Hexagon Band also regaled the guests with beautiful holiday tunes.

T'was a Merry Midas Christmas, indeed!
