Last October 26, 2015, I was lucky to be invited by Inquirer Lifestyle for their Best Desserts 2 Book by Vangie Baga-Reyes launch and to sample the desserts from over 70 out of the 90 desserts listed in the book. Yes, over 70 of the top pastry chef and bakers with their mouthwatering creation in front of me..oh my Gee! Wow I am in dessert heaven.
The book launch was held at SMX Convention Center at SM Aura and the event was hosted by the very quirky Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes and welcoming remarks by her sister - Inquirer president and chief executive officer Sandy Prieto-Romualdez. Ms. Tessa Prieto-Valdes had a very kawaii cake headgear too bad I was not able to get a nice photo of it.
Check out the snap shots from the event, and may I suggest you get a tissue or a hanky as this will cause you to drool... a lot ^_^ don't tell me I didn't warn you.

P.S. Dawin's song Dessert kept playing in my head while at the event, "Watchugonna, watchugonna, watchugonna with all that dessert?" Eaaaat it!!! ^_^
