OPEN FOR BUSINESS!
Posted July 9, 2005on:
I-M-P-R-E-S-S-I-V-E! That is summing up everything about the opening last night of the Chains where our second Tee’licious outlet is located. It started with a solemn mass (for great business for all tenants) at 5PM then continued on with the blessing of the micro-boutiques inside Chains. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was led by no other than Cebu City’s Vice Mayor Mike Rama and Councilor Joy Pesquera.
Cocktails soon followed, as catered by Laguna Garden Café. Mini shawarma, canapés and other hors d’oeuvres were overflowing and for every P150 that we paid for each of our guests, I guess the food was more than enough. Even if not all of our guests came to grace the occasion (*sigh*), big appetites of Matt, Kyle, nephews Juju and Ting made it all “sulit” (more than what was paid for) actually. Ahahaha!
There was a short video presentation about Chains and what can be found in all the individual outlets, after which, a couple of song numbers followed (sorry forgot to take pics). The singers, though not well known, were good enough to keep the ambiance upbeat. Then the much-awaited fashion show commenced. With hip and urban music providing the beat, the models sashayed wearing clothes chosen from all tenants.
The following pictures now take it from here…
(Hover your mouse/pointer on the pic for description of the model’s clothes.)
So there you have it. We have finally seen the fruition of all our preparation. Now we sit back (momentarily) and wait for the “ka-ching” of the sales registers.
Our gratitude to my in-laws for all the support, to our suppliers, to our friends and to everyone who attended, patronized and continue to buy our products. Special mention goes to Paparazzi and sistah May too for being our conduit for the stocks to get to us.
