Auction house Casa de Memoria brought lovers of all things exquisite together for an evening of food, art, and antiquities in celebration of its most recent offering of Decorative Arts and Designs.
Founded in 2016 by sisters Camille Lhuillier and Angelique Lhuillier-Miranda, together with their cousin, Tiffany Mathay, Casa de Memoria is one of the country’s newer auction houses that specializes in European art and antiques.
It also offers a selection of fine jewelry and decorative accessories.
The evening’s special menu took its inspiration from the archives of Pellegrino Artusi, known as the father of Italian cuisine and was executed by none other than Asia’s Best Female Chef 2015, Margarita Forés.
Among the evening's guests were the city's top art and antique collectors, designers, and art enthusiasts.

In Japanese-occupied Manila, an American woman who was known as "Madame Tsubaki" ran a night club that offered drinks, music, and companionship to homesick soldiers. It was a front for a spy ring that funneled information and supplies to guerilla groups outside the city.
