It was a great and successful eyeball, Marketman! Finally, we met MM, MMM (Mrs. MM), and the kid. The eyeball ended at 10pm, after 4 hours of chikahan and kamustahan. The time was not enough to meet everybody. I learned a lot during that night and it was a night of pleasant surprises for me. We came for the conversations with the intent to truly build online friends. We also have a lot of questions for Marketman but those would continue to be unanswered specially on the impact of blogging on the family.
Generally, we don’t enjoy buffet food that much because of the mess it creates on your plate and sometimes it is served cold. In short, I wasn’t able to really indulge myself with the food last night aside from making more acquaintances of the bloggers who were there. There were lots of desserts and for us, the winner for the night was Dimpy Camara’s Frozen Brazo de Mercedes. I can’t wait to order an entire cake all to ourselves! This was featured by Wysgal last month in her post, Icebox Brazo de Mercedes but it was Debbie who brought this awesome dessert to the party. Thanks Debbie!!
I was not able to take a lot of photos because I realized some people might not want their identities revealed. I missed a lot of foodie EBs due to travel. There have been three already — Marketman’s First EB, Lori’s Tea Party with parade of desserts, and Lori’s Nestle cooking demo. But for those who were not able to attend, here is a glimpse of what happened during that night.
Thanks to Chris for hosting the eyeball in Gourdo’s!
