So you’ve explored many different ways to beat the heat this season: from frequent trips to the malls and the country’s finest beaches, to changing your wardrobe to let your pores breathe more freely, all the way to stacking up a variety of cold refreshments in your fridge. You’ll do whatever it takes to cool down and savor the moment braving the sun.

Joining the bandwagon is Globe Telecom, which became the first Philippine telco to mount a launch event for the Nokia Lumia line with the unveiling of the Globe-exclusive Nokia Lumia 800 via a cool launch party recently. Hundreds of Nokia fanatics, celebrities, social butterflies and VIPs as well as media guests trooped to Beso Cucina Vinoteka, a new cool place in the heart of Bonifacio Global City Central, to witness everything cool about the Nokia Lumia 800 and how it’s best paired with an unlimited data plan from Globe Postpaid.

The event was a visual and aural treat to its guests, highlighted by a radical lights, sounds and drum spectacle show led by a group of Buganda drummers, with the lights display consistent with the Nokia Lumia photo wall launch in London. The entrance had walls of interactive screens which were all programmed to play an instructional Nokia Lumia 800 video when guests waved their hand towards the screen. Guests also had the chance to play and tinker around with the device at the device booths, and were treated to free-flowing Spanish food and drinks.

Model and host Joey Mead emceed the launch and introduced Globe Senior Advisor for Consumer Business Peter Bithos and Nokia Philippines General Manager and Head of Sales Dharmesh Goshalia, who both testified to the strong partnership between Globe and Nokia in bringing to the country the coolest devices that are easy to use. The head honchos also gave out Nokia Lumia phones to 35 lucky event goers that made the crowd go wild.

Adding some glitz and glamour to the event was the presence of the Globe Nokia Lumia 800 ambassadors such as TV reality show favorites Slater Young and Divine Smith, models and TV personalities Guji Lorenzana and Mikael Daez, and cosplayer-musician Ashley Gosiengfiao. Australian DJ and model Callum David kept the party alive with his brand of dance music playing all throughout the night.

The night was young for tinsel town’s socialites who also partied at the launch event. Seen at the event were beauty queen Miriam Quiambao, TV hosts Dolly Anne Carvajal and IC Mendoza, social media heartthrob Kimpoy Feliciano, fashion blogger Laureen Uy, Philippine Volcano Eric Tai, fashion designer Rajo Laurel, fashion editor Daryl Chang, models Carlos Concepcion and Marc Gueco, network executive Garlic Garcia, sportscaster Bobby Yan, event expert Stephen Ku, among many stars. The event trended worldwide in Twitter, thanks to its legion of guests, fans and supporters who had everything great to say about the launch.
