Spent last night in MCafe Greenbelt to get to know more about Bench's 1M41M. Been seeing a lot of this on Twitter lately and got curious with what it's all about!
Event's host Magic 89.9 DJ Mia:

Always a lovely evening with these girls:
Also got to meet Jake Cuenca! Syempre nagpapic ako "Dahil mahilig ako sa artista!" Lol. When we were leaving, Jake (first name basis talaga? haha!) was on the phone, but he still managed to say good bye! Kakiliigness naman! :D
Capped the night with Pax, Mich, Dennis, Sarah, and Stella :)
