We Surrendered at the Sweet Surrender Dessert Expo (November 13, 2010, Sitio Elena)

November 17, 2010

Media practitioners, bloggers, photographers and foodies surrendered in the Sweet Surrender Dessert Expo on November 13, 2010 at Sitio Elena. The event which was organized by Good Fellas Production was successful and indeed, tasteful and sweet.

At the registration table, photographers, bloggers and media peeps line up.

The venue is a little too far from the city, but it is just so peaceful and quiet and serene. The place was daintly designed for the event.

Most of the attendees are photographers and they all flocked in the dessert tables to see delectable foodies through their lenses. Although I was feeling tall in my 2-inch heels, I felt kinda small with my point and shoot camera. I cannot find a decent space to take pics of the desserts, so I decided to capture these moments instead.

As expected, the event was filled with sweets, entertainment, food, and more sweets!

Band played great songs and hits!
I always get overwhelmed with buffet tables and food, that I oftentimes lose my appetite. But I love the Chicken Pastel!
Buffalo Wings and alcohol, and more alcohol.

There are just too many good sweets to try and taste; but I worry about my sugar level so I just decided to taste new offerings.

Here’s some sweets for good cause.

One of my faves is the Custaroons. A delicious unique combination of soft, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth flan topped with a chewy, buttery crust! I tasted the cheese custaroons and I fell inlove with it!

This makes a good Christmas gift to your relatives. Box of 24 for regular size costs Php600, and for bite sizes, the box of 120 pieces is only Php1,000. Too bad, they do not have a store just yet, but you may order online at
The best I have tasted that night is the Wicked Bars from Dragon Fly Desserts. Chocolate and chili. That got me curious, so I took a sample and tasted the usual chocolate flavor, with that zing aftertaste! I wonder if they use any chili powder, or sliced labuyo?! It is totally wicked and yummy! It is moist and not too sweet.

I love it too much so I bought a box of 18 (for only Php265!). Another nice gift idea this holiday season!

Check out the offerings from Dragon Fly Desserts by visiting The Almond Cappucino Bars is a must-buy and must-eat too! Price is Php365 for 9×9 box, and Php195 for half box. The booth was manned by good and nice people, (I just have to mention!). So expect good service from this online bakeshop!

We left early because I still had commitment Sunday morning. Too bad, I never know if I won in the raffle? Haha. Here are some goodies from the Good Fellas!

More good fellas. Thanks to all the sponsors and for the invite!

Til next time?
