I don’t even know where to begin.. I just have to say that my club days and party girl ways was a big part of my life and has made me the woman I am today. If I had to live my life all over, I would definitely do it again.. and again.. and again! The values I’ve learned… the things I saw… the friendships & relationships I’ve made… the people I met (Did you know that Carlo & I met in a club??? Well more like we were “re-introduced” in Embassy Superclub by our good friend JM Rodriguez.. probably not the most romantic or ideal circumstance -BUT- that random night turned my world upside down. haha!) and oooohhh the things I heard.. IF ONLY THOSE WALLS COULD TALK…. OMMMMG!
Here’s a flashback of Embassy Superclub!!! My parents are super strict so working in a club was the best excuse and my license to stay out late and paaaaaarty, my favorite line: “It’s WORK. I have to!” (Wink*Wink)! Those were the days.. I had the time of my life partying for a living!!! :)
And NOW… thiiiiiiiis…Valkyrie Nightclub is just one out of the 6 outlets rising at The Palace Manila. The BIGGEST in Asia!!!
Take a good look because this is probably the last time you’ll ever see Valkyrie like this. THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM!!!
And so it happened. Last November 20, 2014 (same day as my PSID graduation & with every reason to celebrate), Valkyrie Nightclub opened its doors for an exclusive launch party to 1,500 guests. VIPS, celebrities, personalities and friends jetting in from Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia came to take a sneak peek and breathe in the Valkyrie experience.
Old habits die hard. I’ve always loved the view behind the DJ’s booth. The energy is INTENSE!!!
The early birds support Erik Cua’s new venture along with his partners and my good friends GP Reyes, Keith Haw and Neil Paras.
My long time friends and Valkyrie partners Congressman Ronald Singson and Neil Arce were out to celebrate too.
Kim Yao and Pam Solilapsi have been through it all: Embassy, Republiq, Prive and now they’re partners in Valkyrie! The nightlife has drastically changed and has come so far from our good old Embassy days.
Valkyrie’s celebrity partners and life of the party Tim Yap, Raymond Gutierrez and Vice Ganda were there to celebrate. And of course, the king of Manila’s nightlife Louie Ysmael along with Alex Habaluyas are Valkyrie partners too.
The best thing about Manila is that it’s so small. Every time there’s a special occassion and an exclusive event, old friends and familiar faces come out to join the party!
Who doesn’t know Manila’s nightlife staples and veterans Manolet Dario, Bombi Balquedria and Jed Dario?! Never a dull moment with these guys!
EVERYONE WAS OUT!!! I even bumped into Tita Anabelle Rama & Tito Eddie Gutierrez.
It was a really special night for everyone!!!JM Rodriguez, a dear friend who I’ve know for quite some time is also a partner of Valkyrie.. and Privè. If you like going out, you need to have his number on speed dial! haha!
Congratulations to the men behind the success of Embassy, Republiq and now Valkyrie. Erik Cua and of course the best club manager evvvvver: WILL!!!
Not a lot of people see them because they’re usually behind the scenes orchestrating, working on their other establishments and cheering on Erik.. BUUUUT… I’ve worked for them and have known their family for years. A BIG congratulations to the Cua Family: Tita Nancy, Tito M, Erik, Mike and Vivian!!! Cheers to defining and making Manila’s nightlife to what it is today!!!
GET READY MANILA because there’s MORE to COME! Congratulations to ALL my friends and partners of Valkyrie. You guys are redefining Manila’s…. or even Asia’s nightlife once again! LET’S PARTY!!! :)
