Look of presidential love?



GRACE Lee and President Aquino

An audiophile with a most impressive CD collection and a music lover, President Benigno Aquino III watched the Sergio Mendez concert last week, seated beside his rumored lady love Grace Lee—but only for about five minutes before the concert. During the concert, P-Noy’s good friend sat in between them the rest of the concert. Was that some body language or no big deal at all? Together, yet not so together—noted people who were Aquino-watching during the concert… Is this, as Sergio Mendez’s music goes, the Look of Love?

Filipino pastry chefs shine in Singapore food event

The Pastry Alliance of the Philippines once again showed mettle and heart at Singapore’s Food & Hotel Asia (FHA) event held April 17-20.

Jehan Damasco’s “Our Garden,” featuring elements from her beloved Nueva Vizcaya and proudly Filipino in theme, earned a Silver medal for the Wedding Cake category.

Christopher Borja won a Bronze for his eye-catching modern Japanese “Tsuru Wa Sennen,” a wedding cake with kimono patterns and precisely folded sugar origami cranes.

Clyden San Pedro cinched a Silver for his Plated Desserts ensemble: Pandora’s Box, an all-white cold plate of Hawaiian macadamia, pineapple and coconut; Camouflage, a verrine of mango-passion, granola and green tea sponge; Metamorphosis, pistachio baklava with apricot and orange blossom Turkish delight; and Kaleidoscope, an Italian vegan dessert of berry-poached apple and soy panna cotta.

At the most coveted and hardest-fought eight-hour live battle that is the Asian Pastry Cup, the Shangri-La duo of Bryan Dimayuga and Rizalino Manas bested 11 other national teams to be honored with the Best in Professional Skills Award for their Kids At Play Plated Desserts, Chocolate Cakes, Chocolate and Sugar Showpieces.

Next in line is Miko Aspiras, PAP’s representative to the World Association of Chefs Societies Congress in Daejeon, Korea, on May 1-5.

    It is very amusing how the Arroyo/Corona Lackeys drool over what they perceive as a character flaw in President Aquino being a bachelor, unlike slime bags like Estrada who calls himself a Christian, while having six wives and mistresses. The most important concern of the People is, not whether he is dating so and so, but how is cleaning up the massive corruption that sits on the Nation like Brain Cancer. Arroyo/Corona Lackeys would prefer to distract the People’s attention to more unworthy values, like looking for dirty laundry in others personal life, but they rally only fools who knows no better. One can wish President Aquino good luck in finding Love that balances and completes one’s Life, but when you have a chorus of sad sacks who screech like vultures in anticipation of exploiting that perceived weakness, they will be disappointed to know that the People now know their priorities,… hopefully.

      Pag bayaran kasi kahit below the belt, tira pa rin nang tira basta me maipukol lang key Pnoy.

      Kaso nakakalimutan ng mga pro-arroyo at pro-crown na mga eto na imbis na magkaliwanagan eh lalong namumuo ang galit dahil puro sila pambubuska at panlalait dito sa pdi.
