Soiree Beaujolais 2013

Every 3rd Thursday of November, Soiree Beaujolais is being celebrated in the Beaujolais Region of France with pomp and circumstance. This is to mark the "new" wine from the region. And last November 21, the Manila Hotel Tent City was witness to the French way of merriment that lasted till the wee hours of the morning.

Organized by the French Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, it has upheld the Beaujolais tradition for twenty-two years in the country.


Manila Hotel's Tent City was transformed into the Streets of Paris that includes the iconic Eiffel Tower.


It literally rained wine that night. I mean, everyone had a glass or two or three. ;)


And aside from the merriment, the night also highlighted the French community's support to Typhoon Yolanda's victims by giving the night's proceeds to DSWD ..





Of course, the famous French macarons are included in the dessert. I love the mint flavored macarons! :)

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
