Fiesta By The Bay.

Frank Briones sent over an invitation and the Dizon sisters all agreed to attend the event. Maybe it is because of the promise of good food or maybe because it is Frank and knowing him, there will be plenty of cute guys around. 

True enough, the place was filled with food stations, about a dozen lechons from different restaurants, bite sized goodness being passed around by hundreds of waiters who were all happy to serve (it is an SM Supermalls' event after all). There was a live band, dancers and a lot of entertainment for the guests. It truly was a FIESTA by the bay. 

Never seen so much lechon in one party before. 

Congratulations to SM SUPERMALLS to a very successful event.

Bumped into my cousin, Chuvaness and together, we checked out what the buffet was REALLY all about..... and saw that it was good. 

Thank you for the photos Ate!

When Chef Jill Sandique came out, we also grabbed the opportunity to capture the moment. I absolutely love her Pistachio Sans Rival (call 7217022 to order).
