Shamcey Supsup Preggy With Her First Baby, Opens Own Restaurant, Pedro & Coi, At 3rd Floor Of Fisher Mall On Quezon Avenue.

SHAMCEY SUPSUP, 2011 Miss Universe 3rd runner up, has a special announcement at the grand opening of her restaurant, Pedro & Co at Fisher Mall, last Tuesday. "I'm 7 weeks pregnant!" she beams with her husband Lloyd Peter Lee by her side.

How did she find out about it? "I was losing my appetite, then I'm throwing up, not the usual morning sickness but any time of the day, so I researched sa internet and yun nga, symptoms of pregnancy," she says. "So Lloyd and I got a pregnancy test at positive nga."

How does Lloyd feel about it? "Of course, we're very happy with this blessing," he says. "Even our respective families are so happy for us. Shamcey is an only child so her parents are really looking forward to have an apo. Ako naman, eldest in a family of four at excited na rin sila na magkaka-baby na kami after our wedding on December 29, 2013."

Shamcey is 29 so she feels she is in the right age to be a mom. Lloyd is 34, but he looks much younger than his age. Why did they call their restaurant Pedro & Coi? "Pedro is from my second name, Peter, while Coi is the nickname of Shamcey sa family niya sa GenSan."

Shamcey is an architect while his family owns one of the biggest textile companies in the country and he's a legal management graduate from La Salle, so how come they got into the food business? "Dream talaga namin to have our own restaurant and it's really more rewarding to have your own business. It took us six months to conceptualize Pedro & Coi and four months to put it up. We had a soft opening at ang ganda ng response ng public. We offer Pinoy food with a twist. Best sellers namin ang version namin ng sisig na complete package kaya binabalik-balikan ng customers. Topsellers din ang aming sinigang, tinola and kare-kare. Dahil sa success nito, we are now planning to open a branch in Ortigas this coming September. Shamcey and I are both hands on in managing the restaurant. Madalas kaming nandito. We're solo owners, wala kaming kasosyo. We also offer merienda and kiddie meals, all reasonably priced."

Even the motif of their resto is very Pinoy, complete with two jeepneys and a fiesta atmosphere. The second floor is made to look like a typical cozy Pinoy home in the province, making it so unique. The paintings on the wall pay tribute to Old Manila, where Lloyd grew up.

Going back to their coming baby, will they prefer a boy or a girl? "Ako, okay lang kahit boy or girl, basta healthy," says Lloyd. "I prefer a girl, mas maganda damitan," says Shamcey. "Ang boys kasi, makukulit."
Is she afraid that her pregnancy might ruin her slender figure? "No. Sabi naman niya (pointing to Lloyd), mamahalin pa rin niya ako kahit tumaba ao. What I'm afraid of is the pain of actual childbirth. Masakit daw, e very low ang tolerance ko for pain. At sana naman, normal, dahil ayokong mahiwa!"

Go and visit Shamcey and Lloyd at their Pedro & Coi restaurant at the 3rd floor of Fisher Mall at the corner of Quezon and Roosevelt Avenues. You won't regret it.
