My cousin RICHARD organized a Mooncake Dice Game. And because I’m a PP (pakialamerang pig), I volunteered to hunt for our major prizes so he can focus on the other, more important things. Richard has been so nice & helpful to me ever since we met, taking me under his wing & bringing me practically to all his events that it was the least I could do to support his very successful & very fun Dice party! ;)
With your permission, I would like to thank our major sponsors first because they played a lot in the success of our fun, fun party!
My friend GRACE YAMBAO of GRACEY’s KITCHEN who, on top of making the best Caviar Pie & baking the yummiest Ultimate Valrhona Cupcakes, also caters and provided our packed meals of Beef Pot-roast with Mushroom Sauce & Buttered Vegetables. For those of you who want to order Grace’s delectable Caviar Pie or her sinful Valrhona Cupcakes, just call or text her at 0922-894 5148.
Joining her in the “feeding program” (:P) are Chef Anna Chua of PINK WASABI who provided the sweets, and Chefs Korinne Lirio & Isaiah Ortega of ORANGE WHISK who provided the canapes, and also boxes of mini chewy buns for prizes. YUM ALL AROUND! Happy tummies indeed. <3
My bff Chef Anna Chua of Pink Wasabi always ALWAYS comes up with such amazing goodies. Forever reinventing, forever creative. She doesn’t stop at just one star. ALL her baked creations are MEGASTARS in their own right! Thank you my loves Anna & Raymond for your dedicated support to me! ❤️ Coming across you at Cuenca was one of the best things that happened to me because I also found 2 great friends, not just sponsors. We are beyond that now. I love you both so much!! For orders & inquiries, call or text 0947-8658634 or Email at email@example.com!
I love you Anna! ❤️ Thank you so much for thinking of me and making me my very own SUGAR-FREE CHOCOLATE REGGIANO for dessert at our Dice Game. You are so sweet to always think of me & anticipate my needs. I didn’t feel kawawa at all because you made sure I had my own sweet stash while the rest gobbled up your delectable goodies from Pink Wasabi ! You are one true friend I am so blessed to have! Love you forever! :-*
And here are my ever supportive friends Anna & Raymond. And I was so happy to have NIEL, a reader turned friend, join us & meet my KTG family finally! <3
These cheesy, beefy puff pastries from Orange Whisk are small wonders! <3 Thank you Chef Korinne Lirio for these!
And everyone enjoyed the bite-sized chewy buns! One of the first naubos among our prizes because everyone just had to have it. Thank you so much for your support, sorry I missed seeing you. Mwah!
The Bossman also brought in the STAR OF THE NIGHT to join our dinner table, the highly anticipated & much appreciated uber tasty (International na & multi-awarded pa) PEPITA’s LECHON & matching SUPER SUMAN! <3
The First BREAKFAST Lechon by Lechon Degustacion at Pepita’s Kitchen -stuffed with sinangag rice with tocino bits and itlog na pula … “IF FRUITS & VEGETABLES ARE FOOD FOR THE BODY, THEN LECHON & BACON ARE FOOD FOR THE SOUL.” PEPITA’S LECHONS ARE AESTHETICALLY THE SAME, BUT LIKE THE BALIKBAYAN BOXES, THE REAL VALUE IS WHAT’S INSIDE. A SENSUAL OVERLOAD THE MOMENT THE KNIFE CUTS THE SKIN OF THE PIG, THAT SOUND! THE ROASTED SKIN CRACKLING IN SHARP MELODY… A VISUAL AFFAIR! WAFTS OF SCENTED STEAM BURSTS FORTH AND ENVELOPES YOU. WHAT FOLLOWS IS A SPIRITUAL TRIP TO THE HEAVENLY REALM OF THE LECHON DIVA.”
We were very honored to have our BOSSMAN, the father of the KTG, slice our mascot! ;))
This is a LECHON DE LECHE WITH TRUFFLE RICE.
My OMG moment goes to this SUPER SUMAN! <3 Small is P1500, party size is P2500.
For inquiries and updated pricing of Pepita’s lechon de leches and other food items, please call or text 09178660662 or 4254605.
While bacon lover RICHIE -of course hindi magpapatalo when it comes to OINKS coz he’s THE ULTIMATE PIG MAN, brought in Zamboanga’s famed DIPLAHAN LECHON‘s oh-so-tender & oh-so-crackling Pork Belly.
The lovely wife & perfect hostess Irene, Mrs. Tales from the Tummy sliced the crackling belly open. Everyone in the room turned upon hearing the first crack, I swear! <3 As you can see, stalks of lemongrass were stuffed into the lechon, giving the meat a fragrance from within, allowing the herb flavor to seep from the inside and make its way out, guaranteeing it covers more area than just rubbing the exterior. This is LHAV I tell you! <3
DIPLAHAN LECHON PRICE LIST: 10 – 12 kilos – Php 6,500.00 | 15 – 18 kilos – Php 7,500.00 | 20 kilos and above – 8,500.00 To order, text or call: Carol – 0917-826-8010 or Wee – 0917-826-8017.
Adding to our fun are of course, the prizes. I mean what is a Dice Game without the prizes, right?
