the gathering of greatness

i haven’t been blogging as much as i wish i were (adulting takes so much time!), but i’m glad that at least i still get some words out there, thanks to a few nudges and invites from aldous. thanks to him, i’ve been able to try a bunch of new stuff (like restaurants, yoga, even a waxing salon) for free and share my thoughts about the things i experienced.

i am a member of team aldous (i was “recruited” by aldous last year!), and last august 20, we celebrated the group’s third anniversary!

welcome

there was a gathering of greatness last august 20, 2016 at the rooftop of 663 j. wright street in san juan. this is the same building where the manila culinary and hospitality academy is located, and there’s a big sign outside that says that.

the party was also the re-launch of the royal caterer, a catering service by chef boy logro. the guys behind the royal caterer are the same guys behind 7 flavors buffet in san juan. i tried that buffet with my family, and we loved it there (cheaper than the usual sambokojin or other, but with varied and well thought out food selections). the royal caterer is just their catering version of it.

they do family parties, corporate events, weddings… pretty much any occasion. they can even theme and make backdrops for your wedding celebration or event.

since i’ve already tried 7 flavors, i knew the food was going to be good. there was pasta, sausages, rolls, and other finger foods.

dessert was provided by maraschino bakeshop. their chocolate cake topped with ferrero was moist, soft, and just the right amount of sweet which made it very easy to eat. i also liked their red velvet cupcakes because the cake part was just really so soft and moist.

drinks were provided by wild cocktails mobile bar. i tried one of those flaming shots with fire on top. it had guyabano juice, a little vodka on top, and a blue flame on top of that. the guy gave me a straw, and said i had to drink it right away once i put the straw in, or else… the straw would burn. anyway, that tiny little drink warmed my chest for a long while!
