LuzViMinda 2017 at F1 Hotel Manila, Philippines
"Ang hindi marunong lumingon sa pinangalingan ay hindi makakarating sa paroroonan." (He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination) - Dr. Jose P. Rizal, Filipino National HeroToday is the birthday of our country's national hero and if I must say, one of my personal favorite heroes in history too. I still remember reading the entire book on his life when I was in university much too quickly that I finished the entire book even before the semester began. It was such a joy learning about Rizal's life and his works. His death was pretty dramatic too. He was shot by firing squad at Bagumbayan (now known as Rizal Park / Luneta) at the young age of 35. That's exactly how old I am this year and for him, he has traveled the world, wrote a lot of captivating novels (I love Noli Me Tangere) and has tried his best to fight the government for the freedom of the Filipinos. Not a lot of 35 year old individuals can say that they've done that much nowadays. So, hats off to you Dr. Jose Rizal!
As Paul and I have recently relocated back from the Lion City, this was a perfect welcome for us as we got to enjoy most of our favourite dishes plus a lot more from all over the country. Running until the end of June, F1 Hotel Manila tapped three distinguished chefs namely Chef Mikel Zaguirre, Chef Dennis Uy and Chef Kalel Chan to prepare an interesting repertoire of dishes to represent the different provincial specialties from their assigned island.
Aside from all these specialty dishes which were prepared by our Chefs, we also got to try the rest of the buffet line-up and I got to say that this is one amazing, well-curated buffet presentation where every single dish will make you want to go back for more.
There's still two weeks left to enjoy all these dishes so head over to F1 Hotel Manila before the end of June 2017!
Buffet rate: Php. 1,699 for lunch/dinner
