A few nights ago I attended the Bench X BDO Mastercard Launch at Salon de Ning and got to hang out with lovely ladies Pat, Vern and Tracy.

The event was star-studded, a common thing for Bench, and presented the very first mastercard for the retail giant. Bench teamed up with BDO to present a card that offers numerous benefits like earning double rewards points, 0% installment for up to 6 months, birthday discounts, sale perks, and invites to Bench events and shows.

Here are some pics from that night. 😉

And because we were having too much fun, we stayed even though everybody was already heading out – and this was the best. decision. ever. Ben Chan appeared while we were taking pictures so we got to take pictures with him and Mr. Ogie Alcasid. But more than that, we actually got to talk to him!!! Imagine how starstruck I was. It was THE Ben Chan and I was actually conversing with him!!

So I just had to ask…”how did you do it?”  [build a retail giant].

And he replied, “I just do what I love to do.” #inspired

then I asked about Cotton On, because Suyen is bringing it to the Philippines and just talked about when they’re opening – the answer being July/August.

We also got to talk to Ogie and he gave us sample pick up lines as he is “Boy Pick Up”.

Events that night were so unexpected but it was awesome.
