For my star-studded dinner event at PHOENIX COURT last December 28, 2013, I was able to give a decent amount of lootbags to my guests, many thanks to my ever supportive sponsors who really extended so much faith & trust in me. I can never thank them enough. Without them, my event wouldn’t have been as FUN-tabulous! <3
As always, Raymond Quisumbing & Chef Anna Chua of MY PINK WASABI made me so very happy by giving me 14 more boxes of Kashi Makis for me & my family, my guest bloggers, & Mr. Ryan Chan of The Bellevue Manila. This is on top of their previous support to me with my 12 days of Christmas Blog Giveaway. They really shelled out a lot for me in terms of financial support & I appreciate them from the bottom of my heart. I’m so comfortable with this cute couple that I already consider them as friends & invited them to join us for dinner as a small token of my appreciation.
If you’re still looking for gifts to give, do consider this box of Kashi Maki for only 540 php. Not only does it spell cuteness overload, their concept is so unique as well that whoever receives this delicious box will surely be happy & in awe of its gustatory as well as visual factor. <3

For most of you who don’t know it yet, Kevin is the nephew-in-law of Jinggoy Estrada, and he is from the famous & respected Vitug clan. I so admire him for setting a path for himself apart from who he is & where he came from. He doesn’t have to work, and yet, he is so diligent & hard-working. You will see him & his partner Justyn Reyes at bazaars manning their booths themselves when in fact they can buy me, my friends, & the whole bazaar if they wanted to! ;))

A new player in the market is my personal & long-time friend, Chari Patricio. Ever since I have known her more than 10 years ago, she has always loved to bake & cook. Putting her skill to good use, this loving & dedicated wife & mother of 4 put up CHARI’s KITCHEN which specializes in flavored dressing. Yes you heard me right, the first ever in the country (and maybe even in the whole wide world!), she came up with a special kind of dressing that even when you’re on a diet or trying to eat green & healthy, you don’t have to miss your favorite dishes via the flavored salad dressings in different flavors: Adobo, Kare-Kare, Chicken Curry, Lechon Paksiw, Bicol Express, & Beef Salpicao! <3 Knowing how innovative & experimental she is, Chari will probably come up with even more flavors to satisfy every craving. ;)

Chef Aggy Villabona of Aggy’s Cakes & Sweets is also a dear & long time friend. I’ve been getting ALL my custom-made birthday cakes from her ever since I can remember. Whenever I need cakes for my children’s birthdays, I run to her & she designs a special cake for each of them. Kahit gahol sa oras, she makes it a point to really deliver on time. :)
For my kiddie guests, she gave me a couple of Gingerbread Houses. WITH MINIONS! I knew the kids would be antsy while the adults were having dinner so I had games for them & the gingerbread houses were the prizes. She also gave me a chocolate birthday cake for JOY MENDOZA who just celebrated her birthday a few days before our dinner.
For those of you who are wondering how to set up your own business, or are contemplating on starting your own business, CLICK HERE & read how she put up her bakeshop with minimal capital & be inspired.
And because I have anticipated the kids’ restlessness, I asked premiere kiddie party shop KIDDIE-PARTY.COM if they wanted to sponsor my event. I’m so thankful to JON SUNICO who agreed immediately & sent over a wonderful, artistic & patient balloonologist who kept the kids entertained as we waited for everyone to be complete before finally dining at 7PM.

Last but DEFINITELY not the least, I am so indebted to The Bellevue Manila & Mr. Ryan Chan, its Marketing & Communications Corporate Director and owner, for being the PERFECT host to me & my guests. He gave us TWELVE Signature Club Rooms & a 3-table Lauriat dinner last December 28, 2013 which we enjoyed immensely. I got to know the wonderful & admirable bloggers whom I just used to read, but now consider my friends because of the bonding & non-stop eating for those 2 glorious days.

I would also like to thank Jehn Domingo, who so patiently assisted me in planning & mapping out our dinner & overnight stay. <3 My event was a success because of her. She did all the work & coordinating. All I had to do was give her the details & show up. The Bellevue Manila surely found a gem in her.
I hope I can do this again next year. It was really fun being the queen of the south for a while haha. Ang sarap pala ng maraming nagmamahal.. AT maging star of the show, lels! <3 #namihasa #feelingeratalaga
