A day of ultimate food tasting experience “Foodgasm invades Maginhawa” #Foodgasm2015. I was really honored and flattered to be chosen as one of the blogger-judges of the event.  Well Nov 17, 2015 was the week Lando decided to invade the area of responsibility.Judging that day was a definite challenge, I wasn’t able to use my DSLR, the fear of getting my cam to get soaked under the rain so I used my iphone instead. Well I was able to get a few shots and some were not of good quality. Imagine me, foodtasting under the pouring rain (well it drizzled most of the time) and scoring/judging the same time (hassle but challenge accepted). Kudos, also to my fellow bloggers for this “buwis-health” moment, for the giving justice to food. Im just glad I have my pals, Jacky and Jovi with me to assist me.

The best part is the eating part! Yes. Before anything else, I really aimed before the event to reach my fitness target goal of 79 kgs, and luckily I did. Deep down inside, I know the event would be my ultimate cheat day. I would be tasting 40 different food stalls (Set A and Set B). To be fair I would not be revealing my faves, because as a judge I have to be fair. Actually I had a hard time on deciding which – would it be the savouries or the sweets (I’m guilty of having a sweet tooth).




Not bad for P200 (pre-selling) / P250 (door price) to purchase tickets, I was able to ask some people who I met along the way and said it was “sulit”. For just one time payment, you get to taste a lot of foodstalls. There was also a bazaar, eating contest, programs & festivities prepared and I heard the concert was a hit, based on the posts I saw on instagram and twitter. The were also other concessionaires who rented a space, The main participants of the events were not charged for their tents. A back story of how they were able to gather participants – some of them registered and others were invited via emails and they did door-to-door. The proceeds of the event will be collected and used to support their college, high school scholars and partnered communities.

I congratulate UP Economics Society along with the sponsors and partnered organizations for being able to pull off the event even though it rained and there was a delay in following the allotted time frame. Foodgasm is an outlet to promote new up-and-coming food businesses in hand with the bloggers and social media partners in promoting the event.  Congrats also to the winners!
