The first celebration was for his Dedication; and the second, for his belated first birthday. (Kai already turned one March 21).
The dual celebration was held in Makati’s Whitespace Manila, which was converted to like an under-the-sea paradise for the day.
More than 300 people were in attendance last Sunday, including the 25 pairs of bigatin godparents from politics, showbiz, and business world. They included senator-elect Bong Go, presidential spokesperson Atty. Sal Panelo, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, and the Cuyotos.
Those from showbiz included Annette Gozon-Valdez ng GMA-7; Dondon at Roselle Monteverde ng Regal Films, Veronique del Rosario ng Viva Films, basketeer James Yap, Philip Salvador (proxied by Ricky Davao), Dingdong Dantes, Ruffa Gutierrez, Janine Gutierrez, Mariel Padilla, and Bea Alonzo (who was escorted by her BF Gerald Anderson).
Celebrity kids, led by the Gutierrez couple’s first born Zion, all had fun either in participating in games or collecting kiddie loots. Zia Dantes was there and so did Isabella Padilla (of Mariel and Robin). Baby Malia O’Brian was there, too; and reportedly also Baltie Semblat (son of Isabelle Daza) and Feather Prats (daughter of John Prats and Isabel Oli).
