The Clara Ole Potluck Fiesta Party
Some “condo shots” I have taken to show you that the party really happened in a condominium. Haha. We spent our time in the pool area with Ning Buning and other guests while waiting for the fiesta to start. It’s good to catch up with Ning who is also one of the first few friends I met in the community when I started attending events. She now focuses on entertainment blogging. Ning has given the name to the face of the guy I was crushing over in Pangako Sa’yo. Nope, it is not Daniel Padilla. It is Grie Fernandez! Haha.
Back to the Clara Ole Potluck Party – Ken and Mhel opened the event and shared with us the dishes that they have prepared. Ken prepared all the dishes with her mom, but we should not forget Mhel’s biggest contribution – the fruit juice made with Clara Ole Truly Fruity Syrup.
As the event is more about #DiskarTips and making the most of what you have, they asked us to share our tips when cooking for an event. Mhel and Ken picked winners who got to bring home Clara Ole products. Ken also shared helpful tips for organizing an event. The event was overflowing with prizes. It seemed that we can host our own Clara Ole party.
To arm us knowledge on how to set up a boodle fight plate, Chef Cath showed us how to make do it.
The Boodle FIGHT
Then.. it’s time to FIGHT!!!
I was so overwhelmed with so many food! I am not usually a big mad eater but when you are surrounded with people who enjoy eating and love good food, you just couldn’t help but take more bites! We all shared the good food. I love the variety of flavor, texture and taste. There is a spicy crab, chewy meat, sour-sweet sinigang and smokey bbq meat. There was mangga and bagoong that I so much enjoyed in between tasting different dishes. You would have guessed, I was the last one to wash my hands (yes, we did eat with hands!). I tasted every single dish so when Mhel asked me what was my favorite.. I was torn between the crabs and squid and balut.
She stepped on the poor tomato while the other player tried to grab it!
Well, of course Nanay Ignacio won! Such a clever and fun woman!
It was good that we were able to plan the game and guess who the last person was – it was me!!! Haha. I never really imagined I would play this kind of game that I only get to watch in noontime shows! It was awesome – especially that we won!
