  • Last night, September 14, 2019, the only party that mattered was the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball, formerly called the Star Magic Ball, held at the Shangri-La at the Fort. It was good news for Bantay Bata 163, the ball's beneficiary, which hopes to raise funds for its Bantay Edukasyon program this year. (The funds raised at last year's ball rehabilitated and re-launched the Children's Village.)

    For the celebrity attendees, it wasn't just a chance to help a good cause but a fun date night with their significant others or with their families! (Check out our highlights here.)

    A few of our favoite moments, however, did not happen on the ABS-CBN Ball red carpet.

    Pokwang's daughter went for gold but... 

    Malia O' Brian, daughter of Pokwang and her husband Lee, had on an exquisite terno in gold. But we only got to see it on Instagram account! The red carpet did start at 7 p.m., most likely past the bedtime of the 1-year-old.

    That afternoon, Pokwang already mentioned on her Insta that Malia was giving "attitude" because the toddler was hungry. She did get to eat her salmon and broccoli.
