Two weeks ago, we got invited to a food-tasting event at Mateo's. And grabe lang ha! This was honestly the most fun I ever had in an event yet! :) Thank you so much to Mateo's and to Ms. Dina of DigitalMedia PH for inviting me to this super fun evening :)
To break the ice, we started off with a gingerbread house decorating contest!
Everyone was soooo delighted to play around with icing and candies. When I was a kid, my mom would always bring home a gingerbread house for Christmas. The houses stopped coming when I turned older, and it wasn't until this time that I finally got to play with one again.
We were divided into 4 teams, and the team with the prettiest house gets to take the gingerbread home with them; the members of the winning team just have to talk among themselves who gets to take the house home, which is, DUH, where the real competition happens. HAHAHAHA!!
Say hello to my team! :) Pat Lou (blogger behind www.teampatlou.wordpress.com) and Ms. Rosey :)
Ta-da! Look at our masterpiece. Hehe.
Okay, introduction time! These two fellas, Ms. Lala and Sir Miko, are just some of the amazing people behind Mateo's.
Fun fact: Mateo's was actually a house before it was a restaurant.
Another fun fact: Sir Miko is holding a photo of his great grand father, Mateo, who was a former HUKBALAHAP member--- he was the inspiration behind this restaurant.
