Ai-Ai delas Alas truly enlivened the first awarding ceremony of The PEP List last night, May 20, at the grand ballroom of Solaire Resort & Casino.
Ever wonder how she prepared for her hosting stint?
THE FIRST RULE: Do not be late.
This is the second time PEP.ph had worked with her (the first was on March 27, the press conference for PEP Readers' Choice), and in both occasions, she arrived on time.
So, from her Dyesebel taping, she went straight to the hotel. It was past midnight when she checked in.
During PEP's behind-the-scene pictorial with her at the room provided by Solaire, she remarked, "Dapat naka-rest ka. Super relaxed...and sosyal!"
THE LOOK: By 6 P.M., she started preparing.
How long did Nilo Cruz do her make-up? Just about an hour.
THE DRESS: She laid down her two outfits on the spacious bed of her room.
Minutes later, she told the reporters, "Itong suot ko, formal-formalan. Yung isa, pang-kabog!"
THE SCRIPT: she spent a few minutes scanning the pages, and laughing at some of her lines.
"Sino ba co-host ko?" she asked.
Upon learning that it's Lucy Torres, one of Ai-Ai's reactions was posted on Instagram: "Dondo namin..."
Note: The one she's wearing was the "pang-kabog" gown.
LAST RULE: Do not be nervous!
She went to the event's venue, the grand ballroom of Solaire, at past 7 P.M. looking so refreshed and ready.
The result: she and Ms. Lucy were a great combination!

Special thanks to Solaire Resort & Casino for being so accomodating.
