1. Catch a local play.
You've seen Heneral Luna. Another local production that you shouldn't miss: Chuva Choo Choo, The Mr. Kupido Musicale! Set to the songs of veteran songwriter Vehnee Saturno, the play tells the story of sisters Dina and Darla who get into all sorts of misadventures in their quest to stardom.
Catch the first four shows on September 25, 26 (3:00 p.m./8:00 p.m.), 27 (3:00 p.m.) at the Power Mac Center Spotlight—a 300-seater black box theater. For ticket inquiries, call Cheng Pimentel of Stages Production Specialist Inc. at (0917) 859 6544.
2. Streamline your workwear wardrobe.
If you're the type who scrambles for what to wear to the office every morning, take this opportunity to sort out your clothes. Those that scream shabby or disheveled need to go. In the office, you need to look your best. Start with power pieces that upgrade your everyday look.
3. Visit a museum.
Yuchengco, Lopez, Ayala—there should always be room for a little art in your life.
4. Organize your own barkada quiz night.
Married friends vs. single friends or boys vs. girls—either way, it'll be fun and memorable. Plus, it's a good way to catch up on current events. For example, did you know that Jennifer Aniston and her husband Justin Theroux might be having twins? Or that Jennifer Garner's new man is the new McDreamy?
