MANILA, Philippines - Plunging necklines, low-cut dresses, and hearty boobs were scattered all over Mugen Restobar in Metrowalk in Ortigas Center, Pasig City on Tuesday night in a show billed “Cleavage Night.” The show is a fund-raising gig for Dr. Estrellita J. Uson, the mother of Mocha Uson of the all-female group Mocha Girls.
Dr. Uson, a medical doctor, has been stricken with stage 3 breast cancer and has gone through a cycle of chemotherapy.
A radiation therapy is scheduled anytime, thus, the benefit show to assist her in the medical expenses.
Mocha Girls’ friends and colleagues didn’t fail her, and showed up to express their love and concern. Most of the females were in their sexy attire as they heeded the request in the invite—“Come and show up your cleavage.”
Mocha, dressed up in a booby cut, was in no pensive mood despite the state of her mom. “I see the event to bond somehow and party a bit although it’s kinda hard to celebrate because of my mom’s condition. But I thank my friends and supporters in the entertainment industry who have been with the Mocha Girls all the way,” she said.
Sexy Daiana Menezes, controversial Grace Lee and Boys of the Night hosted the gig and introduced to the public the new members of Mocha Girls--Mae de la Cerna, an erstwhile EB Babe, and Jhane Santaguiel whose voice resembles Avril Lavigne’s.
The Girls, with the sizzling Speed Dancers, breezed through in their itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny bit of naughty moves and later egged the male audience to join them onstage.
Meanwhile, EB Babes Baby Belle and Princess Ryan warmed up the predominantly male, multi-racial crowd with their singing, their bodies gyrating.
Sexy clone Ruffa Mi was a daring showstopper as she called on rowdy males to come up and kiss her cleavage. Wheewww!
For a good cause, the bands were emotionally charged and their music electrifying as they played alternative, R&B, slow and hard rock. Nyoy Volante with the Rhythmic Circle Band and 6 Cycle Mind did OPMs to the delight of their cult fans.
Callalily with lead vocalist-turned-movie star Kean Cipriano made special mention of Mocha Girl Jhane as he performed slow rock pieces to a swooning audience.
Jay Durias and his South Border band came after Kris Lawrence (yes, think Katrina Halili) and headed for a showdown.
More than just a fund-raising, Mocha stressed the occasion also served as an awareness campaign for breast cancer, the Girls’ strong advocacy. The Mocha Girls announced they have a website at www.mochauson.com.
