I was planning to go to Sagada when I had received the invitation for the Globe Tatt Awards Night at the Peninsula Manila. I told myself, I’ll be quick, just to show up and meet some friends, have a taste of Peninsula’s desserts, which they are really known for (proof: I had no picture of it because it went straight to the mouth!) But alas, Tita Mary of the Residence Lodge in Sagada texted me about the continuous rain and the risk for “slide”. Instant change of plans (and well, settling of some depression over a spoiled long weekend.) I stayed with friends instead, and enjoyed more desserts!
I was getting drinks for Nina, who was a finalist for the Tatt, when I saw someone gracefully enter the ballroom. OMG! It’s DCF‘s Lori Baltazar! I could not tell you how freaked I am, actually we were both freaked out. Apparently, she remembered my blog about my Tatt bets.

Maria Ressa. She had a really nice speech about social media, actually very geeky. And she also had a funny blunder on presenting the Thought Mover award when she announced it even before presenting the finalists’ video. She’s really funny and I love her voice *fanboy moment*
Tonyo Cruz, Loi Landicho
Grace Velasco, a.k.a. Divasoria
I’ve been hearing about Paramita, but this is the first time I heard them perform. I like their set.
Armi: We’re kinda deaf here…
