It all began when I received an email asking me to be one of the blogger judge for an event, The FOODGASM 2. In a nutshell, the event is a food tasting competition which aims to showcase the up and coming food establishments in Metro Manila, where in at the end winners were judged by us, bloggers and foodies all over the metro. Each participant were asked to serve 800 samples of their food of choice per official entry at the event and their product will be sampled and judged by 25 famous bloggers and invited chefs. It all happened last March 9 at the tent of Mercato Centrale, BGC.
Here are some photos of the participants with there uber delish samples.

I was so happy seeing the sisters of Paire, Kat and Abby Nantes, inspite of being drastically involved in the preparation of their booth still managed to be cheerful to everyone, including me. Oh, and of course to have a taste once again of their heirloom dish, the Ligid and the refreshing Almond Amaretto. And what do you know they went home winning the title Expert's Choice!
