It’s not every year that you get to have a grand celebration for your birthday.  For girls particularly, debuts were more often than not the culminating night of these celebrations that were characterised with much grandeur.  However, this did not stop Girltrends member, Chie Filomeno from throwing an Instagramable birthday bash at Discovery Suites as she turned 23.  Here’s a list of everything note-worthy about that night:

1.  #TwentyChie

The birthday celebrant was very hands on with the planning of her 23rd birthday.  She even personally came up with the event hashtag, #TwentyChie.


2.  Pink Instagram Wonderland

Initially, the event did not have a theme.  However, as the birthday bash grew closer event stylist Michael Ruiz and event coordinator Kim Torres took inspiration from Chie’s proposed birthday outfit and decided to go with a pink on pink on pink set-up.

3.  Outfit

Chie donned a custom Boom Sason ensemble that made her look like an angel.  The white dress definitely made her stand out in contrast to the pink motif.

4.  Guests

Chie wanted to keep her birthday bash “intimate”, inviting only the closest family and friends although that did not keep her party from being star studded.  Apart from Hayden Kho and Vicki Belo, Issa Pressman, Julia Barretto, Sam Concepcion and rising star Marco Gumabao also made an appearance.

Fun Fact: The team behind Chie’s birthday only had two weeks to plan, conceptualize and execute the entire event.  It would have never been possible without the help of numerous people credited in her posts above.  Of course your very own, Discovery Suites helped by providing the venue and well as food from 22 Prime.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • FABULOUS LOCATION AND SUPERB STAFF. The suites themselves are excellent with modern self catering facilities, fabulous bathrooms, comfy beds and exceptionally clean. The location is great for the CBD and restaurants and malls are all close by.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
