"You're the only blogger I invited" said the organizer at the Bachour in Manila cocktail night and media launch. With the exception of a writer from PhilStar who also blogs, I was the only blogger present at the very first event of the world-renowned pastry Chef. They have another blog as a media partner, but they were a no-show. "I notice details like that, and appreciate your presence" the organizer said something to that effect.
Thank you also to Chef Antonio Bachour for inviting me to his most special days of stay in the Philippines. He said I should not miss September 6 because there will be a buffet. It must be a buffet of desserts, pastries, sweets and other sugary delights. I was just going to attend the big September 10 concluding event at the Greenfield District, but he convinced me to be there on September 6 too.
To the chef who would always give me the thumbs up everytime I try to take his photo, it would be a pleasure to see him in action as he works on his sweet creations.
Later that night he said "See you again on September 6!" reminding me again before he left with his wife and pastry chef, while I still stayed at a couch at Discovery Primea to upload the videos I took from the event. The traffic going home may take me awhile before I get to upload so it's better I take advantage of the speedy Internet connection of the venue.
"Thanks, and see you! Bye!" I said. Of course, I will be there! It isn't everyday that somebody famous personally invites you. It will be an honor.
Chef Antonio will be conducting daily events at the Greenfield District from September 4 to 10. Where exactly? I asked for direction and found out it will be in the building opposite Soho Central Condominum. This is at the corner of Shaw Boulevard and Mayflower.
