Arrived safely at NAIA.. BTW, I'm with our co-w@wiesg couple Tonio and Janice during the flight... They are also doing their wedpreps..
1. Joel Bautista - Rudy's Barong
with Ate Clarice (OTD)
1:30PM - Meeting with JoelBaustista
I had several email excahanges with him since last year. His office is cozy and inviting.. He himself is also nice and honest. What I really like about him is his kwentos and experiences kaya di ko din napansin ang oras..
He gave us some advise for our wedding, nakakatuwa nga kasi its reality :) So habang sinusukatan nya si Rudy kwentuhan pa din kami to the maxxxxx..
Oh before I forgot, we got his service because of 2008 w@w auction.. Great find talaga kasi he will be using a Pina Jusi for Rudy's barong..
3:00PM - Meeting with Joy San Gabriel and Clarice Avinante
Ate Clarice accompanied us in Ms. Joy's kitchen/shop.. Sa may hagdan palang amuy na amoy na ung mga cakes.. at nakakatakam talaga :)
The kitchen is clean. At that time, Ms. Joy is baking a wedding cake for a wedding. Then some of her staff are baking.. She entertain us and she's really approachable..
Ms. Joy prepared 5 different cakes for us namely AMARETTO, CARROT, BLUEBERRY CHEESECAKE, 2 variant of chocolate cake that I forgot the names. Everything are tempting. I first tasted the blueberry chessecake (since I'm a chessecake lover), well it was definitely the best cheesecake I tasted (walang stir!!!)..
Carrot cake and amaretto are also superb.. In the end, Rudy and I decided to take the amaretto, carrot and chessecakes (mango, strawberry, blueberry and oreo) for our wedding cake. Kasi nga lahat un nagustuhan namin..
6:00PM - Food tasting with Kaye Cunanan at their mega beautiful mansion..
Cocktails - Hoisin chicken wrap and Blinis with smoked salmon and dill

Top favorite dishes:
Cocktails - Hoisin chicken wrap (really yummy, presentation plus 5)
