Last night while waiting for My Husband’s Lover on GMA, my friend Karen and I were reminiscing how we met in 1996. It was through my childhood friend Lia, who met her at Club Filipino during the badminton craze.
When I met Karen, she was chubby, bubbly and full of energy. She was my fashion assistant at Grocery, which was my label back in the ’90s.
Three years later she was back in the US, and I didn’t know when I would see her again.
In 2005 she came over to visit
And then we lost touch. Well thank God for Mark Zuckerberg. I found her on Facebook and last week she came over to stay with me while visiting her dad who is undergoing cancer treatments.
This is Karen at home
and at Pepper Lunch
Two years ago, Karen started her career in Zumba, which combines Latin and international music in an effective workout system. See Karen’s weight loss in just one year
Karen, before and after. Not bad for 40!
Here for two weeks, Karen leaves on June 16th. Luckily she was given an opportunity to hold a Zumba masterclass at Beyond Yoga, The Fort to help raise funds for her dad.
You will love Karen’s energy. Just watch her during a fundraiser held in Palm Springs recently, where she was able to raise US$5,000 for her dad.
This Friday the class will be held from 6:30-7:30 PM at Beyond Yoga, BHS Central Branch – 3rd Floor, C2 Building, 7th Ave Corner 28th Street, Bonifacio High Street Central, Taguig.
Fee is Php 600, and donations are more than welcome.
