A few weeks back I was invited to the media preview of Asian Food Channel’s latest show entitled “Amazing Food Challenge: Fun in the Philippines.”
The show is a mix of cooking challenge as well as physical challenges. It’s a reality show with a twist! And to let us really feel how the show went along, we were treated to a lunch featuring popular Filipino fares coming the the cities where the contestants have also visited, like Ilocos, Cebu, Bicol, etc.
Panagbenga Festival in Baguio was never in my travel plans for this year. But if you got an invitatpion to Travel back to the Summer Capital of the Philippines to cover the event, would you decline?
Panagbenga Festival 2014
So just a few days after I went back in the Metro after a month’s stay in Bacolod, I got a message if I will be free around February 21-23 to go to Baguio for the flower festival. Of course! Who am I to decline such invitations? Hahaha
