Turning a year older is a reason to celebrate and make a wish! My very good friends took it into a higher level. They gathered more friends and hosted a series of parties for me! Indeed, it was a busy week for me!
After a sumptuous dinner of grilled favorites at BBQ Park, caterer to the rich and famous DING MONTELIBANO treated yours truly, vivacious NOEL MIRASOL and fun-to-be-with NONOY BATAGA for beer and sweets at Biz Bar of Richmonde Hotel at Megaworld. Amid fun conversation on current events, we enjoyed on standards, chill and lounge music played by a pianist.
The next night, businessman NESTOR FLORES jetted in from Cosmo-Manille to celebrate his upcoming birthday by hosting a dinner get-together for DING M., NOEL M., NONOY B. and yours truly. We savored the yumminess of Kamalig Restaurant at Atria Park District. It was followed by ice-cold beer, sinful desserts and more talk.
It was a cheesy night when sisters PANGGING and PANE ROSALES treated me and the gang – Fr. DENNIS BATACANDOLO who will soon be assigned in Sicily, Italy, columnist ZEDRICK SEÑERES, Iloilo’s Bad Boy of Fashion BO PARCON, the tweetums of Iloilo fashion JET SALCEDO, supermodel RIA BOLIVAR, muy simpatico ANDRÉ SALCEDO, and goodlooking hunks MARK HERMANO and BIEN GRINE at Henry’s Wine and Liquor in Plazuela de Iloilo. The ROSALES sisters brought Brie, Camembert, Irish Cheddar and Babybel to be complemented by the poisons of the night – fine wine, scotch whiskey, iced vodka and below zero beer, and interesting conversations on history, geography, Mediterranean cuisine and politics!
