What could be more delightful than a gathering of friends from the arts. Celebrating her birthday week with a series of pocket celebrations, Ayen Laurel did just that. On the second night of her fest, she gathered her friends from the theatre and design world for an intimate dinner at Sala in Makati Avenue.
Dinner was sublime, banter unmatchable and the birthday song sung with such beautiful harmony.
Many happy returns of the day, dear Ayen.
