Recently, I was invited to take part in a pictorial by Philippine Tatler for Swiss luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet. It was a big honor for me to be considered as one of its brand ambassadors (together with Dr. Aivee Teo and Joanna Preysler Francisco), who embody the brand’s strength, values and image. During the shoot I was asked to choose amongst the different models of ladies’ watches, and I chose this elegant piece from their Millenary Collection: a Ladies Millenary watch in 18-carat white gold case, with 116 brilliant cut diamonds glare-proofed sapphire crystal, and a pink cabochon sapphire. It was indeed a “dream” watch come true for me, even if I had only a couple of hours to wear it!
The article on the other hand, was an interview by Philippine Tatler’s Chit Lijuaco, who gave me the chance to speak about a cause close to my heart: The Child Protection Network. This is a charity I’ve recently started supporting as it advocates the well-being of children — especially those who are abandoned and abused in our country. As a mother myself, I feel a lot of connection and empathy for these little ones, as no child must feel unloved and afraid — especially in his or her own home.
For more info, you may visit their website at childprotectionnetwork.org.
