"Premieres" at Garage 1954

WALLS well decorated with movie stars and Hollywood icons, corners adorned with glamorous ornaments from various eras, and generations of classic entertainers we continually find ourselves emulating.

Welcome to Garage 1954, a bar and restaurant now taking its mark in the highly contested entertainment venues in Bacolod City.

Strategically located to the roads leading to one of the entrances of the iconic Panaad Park in Alijis, the near corner position is equally accessible for those who want a sure escape from a busy daily grind. Similarly, this proved to be a similar idea as to how to throw a simple and intimate party for my 30th birthday last weekend that shall be topped with glitz and a lot of sparkles.

To me, what better way to represent my existence than a theme that speaks volume of making people happy. Thus, a "Netflix" inspired party to compliment the beautifully placed music and celebrity walls in one of Garage 1954's exclusive rooms. The catch, match the subtle but bold Netflix colors as party outfits: red, black or white. This would remind me of the countless magical movie adventures I take religiously at the comforts of my home through what is considered as the modern age "movie library."

I emotionally recollect my significant life moments leading to what I consider as the third chapter of my life story. In this case, a chapter runs for a decade. Point of the matter is, 30 is a great year to make drastic and dramatic decisions.

One may have proved himself as less intimidated to the challenges of time, to say the least, far beyond the mark of immaturity. As to me, the times have engraved on my chest the principles of self-honesty, character, and the never-say-die attitude in pursuing my dreams.

The invites aptly described the celebration as a movie night, thus, the theme "Premieres at 30," a fitting send off to a persona that I have become, strong-willed and unafraid to face my demons, channeling the virtues of my LaSallian education and a community that molded me to see life in the perspective of others who have less and more.

Our page today is selfish. I dedicate its every inch to the ideals of “A-Listed” and SunStar Lifestyle as I look back to the past three decades of my life on earth. I thank our readers who take the good news with a welcoming heart.

At 30 and “A-Listed” ushering its four years as a regular piece with a digital counterpart and once, a television medium, it will only dedicate its efforts in inspiring people through stories worth reading.
