The Albert’s Wedding Renewal in Boracay; The FILA Polo Cup


Fila luminaries Butch and Cris Albert have a flair for reinventing themselves, as they go about their worthy pursuits with élan and style. At this early time of the year, the bon vivant couple had already realized two splendid events.

With a penchant for nature, the innovative Alberts drew family and friends to an ultimate escape – the Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa to renew their marriage vows. It was an ideal, idyllic setting, decorated with tropical flowers strewn all around.  The intimate wedding ceremony and after-party celebration was held at the private beach of the luxurious Villa 13.  Butch was a picture of contentment and Cris looked beach–star radiant, as the two enjoyed the merriment and blissful moments, while sipping, their favorite Moet et Chandon Rose’ amidst the gentle waves.

A month later, the Manila Polo Club was the scene of the Albert’s 2012 Fila Polo Cup, which was timed with the launching of “Skele-Toes: ‘what-the-heck-is-that’ campaign. Skele-Toes is what one’s outfit can use, for added cheer and punk attitude. The Fila Cup is known to mix fun with social responsibility, and the beneficiary of the event was the iSport Life Ministries. FILA President, Butch Albert had asked for the support of his project “500 For 500” by Operation Compassion. From the sale of Skele-Toes, 500 pesos goes to the 500 families affected by Typhoon Sendong. Cheers! Cris and Butch! (Do visit my website: and Facebook – The Lady HB).
