Everyone enjoys parties (not just birthdays) hosted by Princess Dr Becky Laogardo---she loves giving away lovely gifts!
Many may recall how she used to literally throw cash from her indoor balcony or staircase. Or she would roll RM 100, RM 50, RM 20, RM 10 and RM 1 and throw them up in the air for her guests to catch. At her Christmas parties, she and hubby would ask everyone to sit at their tables and they would go to each table and throw cash onto the table! Those were the days but the rowdiness and struggling among guests made her stop this Filipino tradition.
Now we make do with just pressies with no cash!
Unlike most birthday celebrants who receive presents from guests, Princess Dr Becky Leogardo also gives presents in the form of door gifts so EVERY guest gets something nice. Then there are the prizes for Best Dressed Men, Best Dressed Women, Best Dressed Couples, Best Dressed Children (at her kids' birthdays), lucky draws and Grand Lucky Draws!
The Grand Prizes are truly amazing and valuable as they are normally jewellery! This time the third prize was an earring and ring set with coloured diamonds. The second prize which I wanted to win so much was a ring with 3 dangling Peacock coloured South Sea pearls with diamonds and the top prize was a red coral and diamond pendant. I think the prizes were worth RM 10,000, RM 15,000 and RM 20,000!
Each guest picked a lucky number. As I was emcee, they bypassed me so I went to Dr Chit Magtal to get mine and she gave me ticket # 180! Dr Chit brought me small luck as I won a normal lucky draw prize worth RM 350 so right from the start I was out of running for the top 3 Grand Prizes! And I so wanted the ring!
All photos appear twice; the first has been lightened and brightened and second is orignal, so you get 2 for the price of 1 and I know readers like to look at the same sexy pictures twice! After all, you can never get too much of a good thing!

Princess Dr Becky Leogardo bought this couture gown for RM 24,000 from Escada in Paris when they launched the perfume Sentiment
But during the launch the model could not wear the specially made gown as Princess Becky had already bought it!
There was a commotion at the international launch of Sentiment perfume by Escada as the model could not wear the couture gown that appeared in advertisements as Princess Becky Leogardo had bought it days earlier!
Escada was not supposed to sell the gown until the Sentiment perfume launch was over but by mistake, they sold it to Princess Dr Becky Leogardo---I love it
