Who could ever match the abundance of food, drinks, and gimmick at the Taste Asia Food Fest of SM Hypermarket , SM Mall of Asia ,? It was a huge success in terms of attendance, fun and food. I didn’t expect that all registrants would arrive. In fact, I forgot to sign up my daughter , Lauren .

Surprises galore awaited us at the party.

The food arrived or rather overflowed in batches. First the cocktails arrived, then appetizers during the program, and finally the main course. I didn’t get to eat the main course anymore because I was already full by then. How much food can anyone take? I cannot imagine. A fiesta atmosphere filled the whole room as two tables were laid out to be feasted on.

If you weren’t happy with the food, one could always sit down and surf . SM Hypermart even provided the bloggers with laptops and I managed to check my emails and send a twitter message.

The evil chocolate fondue fountain by Crazy Choco was a smashing hit among the young bloggers except for diabetics like me. But I couldn’t resist a chocolate dipped marshmallow, could I? Hehe!
