Let’s join Chef Lau’s Dinner Party!

See, we are even
color coordinated
when we do dinner parties!
Private family celebrations are usually done with dinner parties. Like my sisters and I, we usually have dinner parties sometimes once a month or every few months and especially at birthdays, on Christmas and New year's day.

We catch up on each other's lives while preparing and cooking dinner together. And our more precious bonding time is at dinner time.

My sisters and I may have different styles in preparing and cooking food but we all truly love cooking. Our dream someday is to start a catering business or better yet a restaurant of our own. One of my brothers-in-law is a certified chef but he is often out of the country so he rarely gets the chance to show off or teach us his ways in the kitchen.

I wish I'll get the chance to meet a Filipino celebrity chef and learn techniques in the kitchen.

The good news is that Chef Rolando Laudico or more commonly known to many as Chef Lau will be hosting an exclusive dinner party at Bistro Filipino. How fab is that?! It's gonna be more fabulous and I'd be grateful if I, a blogger, get to meet the Philippines' well-loved chef, the one and only Chef Lau! You know, to learn techniques from his own kitchen and get to taste his popular dishes would be an honor. I'd probably melt on the ground though, to be honest.

Get to know Chef Lau:

Chef Lau will feature some of his popular, signature dishes at this exclusive dinner party. Now thanks to Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief®, Chef Lau can fully enjoy this dinner party without worrying about "pangingilo" (Dentine Hypersensitivity or more commonly termed as 'tooth sensitivity').
How do you deal with discomforts because of tooth sensitivity? Dentine Hypersensitivity happens when a hot, cold, sweet or very acidic food or drink causes a short
***For instant relief, simply massage small amount of Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® on the sensitive tooth. Brush regularly for lasting relief and protection.
Why it works?
It has Pro-Argin™ Formula. It is clinically proven to provide relief from tooth sensitivity. Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® is 2x more effective** because it tackles the root cause of sensitivity.
**twice daily, regularly brushing for 2 weeks.
**vs. potassium-based sensitivity toothpaste
and sharp discomfort on your teeth. It would be truly uncomfortable and slightly embarrassing when you have to deal with it especially at dinner parties full of guests, don't you think?

The latest breakthrough of Colgate® -- Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® provides Instant*** Relief and Lasting Protection against tooth sensitivity. That's why I'm always armed with Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief® when going for night out with girl friends or at lunch / dinner parties. When I ran out of Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief®, I just have to quickly run to the nearest store to get a tube or two of Colgate® Sensitive Pro-Relief®.

Sooo, let's join Chef Lau's Dinner Party!

He Bears the Name of Former President of the Philippines and He Flees Like a Thief!

It's hilarious when someone who owes you a huge amount of money pretends not to see you and flees like a thief. It's even funnier when someone who stole things from you acts like she is one bit dignified and even displays and wears the things that she stole. Another kind of thief known to many is people who borrows things or money but never return the things borrowed nor pay you back.

I don't think they know that they are thieving though. Have you met people like these?

Unfortunately, I've met these thieves who are shameless for keeping things that don't belong to them. So please forgive me if I don't lend you any.

I don't know how thieves could sleep at night knowing full well that they keep money or things that don't belong to them. Would you be able to sleep at night if you owe someone a huge amount or if you keep things with you especially if they are expensive?

The first type of thief aforementioned was so arrogant and rudely-mannered. He looks down at people around him as if he owns everything and everyone within sight, perhaps he looks at his wife too as his property, who hardly said a thing during meetings. He is proud to wear the smirks on his face whenever he successfully insulted another person. Well, he is bloody rich. Does that mean he's got "license" to be ill-mannered?

I'm proud that I had the chance and guts to tell him off once or twice not to raise his voice at me. Elitists got to know that they can't just walk all over people who aren't rich like them. Wait! Perhaps he is arrogantly proud of himself because he bears the name of one of former presidents of the Philippines. I don't think there's relation though. I was not in the Philippines when this president seated so I'm not sure if thieving is what they have in common.

I telephoned a few times but never got response nor was my calls returned.

And that's all I'm gonna say.

The second thief literally stole things from my house while I was busy fixing food and drinks for the 'party'.  It's odd that she's damn proud to wear the things she stole. What's more ridiculously ill about this is that this thief has got the 'balls' to be rude to me in person and through social network. I don't understand why but I just laugh it off and ignore. I don't think I should stoop low the level of that pitifully creased-and-malnourished thief for just a few pieces of 'things' which, by the way, I worked hard for to send to England. I can work on "new ones" again.

God, forgive me please for being ill this moment.

Third thief borrowed a "collection" of mine and promised to take care of them and return to me as soon as he can. This person never returned my "collection" nor did he reply even though I've sent messages through cellphone and social network.

Ah well. Karma will get them, that I'm sure of.

May God Bless them! I pray that they realize soon that thieving is morally unacceptable. I pray also that I'm forgiven for having ill-feelings towards them.

An Awesome #Nuffnang Night to Watch The Bourne Legacy for Free!

A big thanks to Nuffnang Philippines and Mandaue Foam for picking me as one of the winners of The Bourne Legacy movie screening.

Isn't that cool? I got free movie tickets! What's more awesome is that the tickets were for the movie "The Bourne Legacy" that was partly filmed in Manila, Philippines! We were so excited to see how Philippines was featured in this film so off we went to Shang Cineplex, Shangri La Plaza last weekend.

Don't worry I won't spoil the story for the rest of you Bourne fans! Not much.

But let me just say that I'm glad Jeremy Renner didn't get hurt running and jumping over those roofs! I wouldn't dare do that myself nor would I let my family. The chase scene in Manila was so unreal and very Hollywoody style! You know why? It's next to impossible to do a chase around Manila because of heavy traffic and tight gaps between cars, especially if the route is jeepney route. Unfortunately, Filipino drivers (especially jeepney, taxi, bus and truck drivers) skillfully leave very minimal space for any other motorists to go through.

And why they didn't rent the yellow airport taxi when lead actors arrived in Manila?

Nonetheless, I loved the chase scene because of impressive execution. Also, Bourne Legacy plot is more solid than previous Bourne films. I can't wait for the sequel and I hope Matt Damon will agree to do the sequel too.

Have you seen "The Bourne Legacy" yet? What was your impression? If you haven't, I strongly recommend it for you all to watch, whether you've seen the previous Bourne films or not.
