KTG NEW YEAR PARTY AT F1 HOTEL MANILA

For me, one of the best ways to greet the New Year is by spending it with our foodie family -- THE KAIN TULOG GANG!

I mean, there is really no doubt that when you love food, you immediately surround yourself with people having the same obsession to make sure your year starts alright. That's sort of like "food shui" to greet 2016.

See what I did there? He he he he he!

Anyway, ERICJAZ FOODIES was actually invited to KTG's Christmas party in Edsa Shangrila. However, we were not able to attend because we were in Yub's hometown in Quezon Province. It was a good thing because since there were many absentees, our KTG bossman Spanky, kindly set up another one that also included our foodie kiddies.

Yoo to the HOO!

The KTG NEW YEAR PARTY was then scheduled and our favorite F1 HOTEL MANILA generously accommodate us with a venue for that most definitely fun day.  And yes, like what we had predicted, it was another great event with my favorite foodie family: there was non-stop chatter, food was overflowing, and we had a NEW YEAR'S PARTY that is surely different from how others spent it.

You might say that it was an awesome KTG PARTY and everyone was so happy INSIDE and OUT. He he he he he!

Cheers to my foodie family! Here's to 365 days of spreading the good word on drool-worthy food and living the happy, crazy, and lazy life!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR  KTG!!!!
 


It's 2016 and the KAIN TULOG GANG is getting bigger and bigger!




We were reserved at our second home, F1 HOTEL MANILA, and they gave us their Titanium Function room. The same place we had our crazy CHRISTMAS PARTY last year! 




It was great to see the KTG foodie faces that I love!  Here's Karla of THE PLAZA and Joan with my cutie pie inaanak.

Is it just me or is my godson doing the Mr. Pogi face? He he he he he!

That's Andrei's fingers by the way.



Of course, if hottie mareng Joan is around, THE FOOD ALPHABET is always nearby!








Here's table number one of dear Spanky, THE MOMMIST, and HEFTY FOODIE!




Table number two has THE LAST DON and DUDE FOR FOOD!



We were not able to get a picture with them but that table also seated THE AWESOME family.




Table number 3 has the family of pretty Raquel Bartolome (Marketing Manager in PR and Advertising -- Vikings Group), PINAS MUNA, and the EN ROUTE family!








We have another singles table of THE HUNGRY KAT, NINES VS FOOD, and PEPE SAMSON!




We have a new baby Yub????



Andrei was so happy to see Baby Rain!




While that was going on, Mati was making friends with a very tasty candy cane. He he he he he he!




AND NOW IT'S TIME FOR ME TO EAT!




I'm very excited to dig in to the buffet because F1 HOTEL MANILA has a new head cheaf -- Mr. Timothy Decker Gokioco and we cannot be more excited! I had a taste of his food before in THE CAKE CLUB and we loved everything that was served to us. Dear Chef Gokioco is now on top of the hotel's daily kitchen operations plus the lunch and dinner buffet spread of F ALL DAY DINING, plus Canary Lounge, and their banquet and catering menus.

We're SO looking forward to eating more of your creations Chef Decker... especially TODAY!

Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha (hungry laugh)!



F1 HOTEL MANILA Salad Bar!



Soup Station!



My master Mati is so into appetizers that he cannot resist getting bowls of the hot soup in his hungry tummy!




Chef Decker prepared a buffet that will be appreciated by kiddies and the kids at heart!




Cheesy vegetables!



Sweet spaghetti!




Love the melting cheese!




Red hotdogs on stick for the win!




Andrei had two or three sticks of these.




Crunchy Fried Chicken!




Tender pork barbecue!



Here's the dessert station!




From afar, this carving station caught my eye!




Everyone was all oohing and aahing at the Spicy Lechon Duck!!! Could you see how moist and juicy each morsel is?

This is so awesome Chef Decker!


BESIDES THE AWESOME SPREAD OF F1 HOTEL, WE ALSO HAD FOODIE GIFTS FROM OUR KTG FRIENDS!

We worshipped this big leg of PLAZA HAM!!!




The holiday season is certainly more perfect with this festive favorite!!!!

Of course, THE PLAZA HAM is perfect for any occasion too! Order it for your next party if you want your guests to go WOW.




PLAZA HAM is best paired with loaves of warm pandesal!



So juicy and flavorful!




I think I"m going to have A LOT of these!




We were also graced with the awesomeness of LEONARDOS NATIVE LECHON!!!




Everybody got plates upon plates of this Filipino ingenuity!



One thing's for sure, one plate is NEVER enough.... The crispy skin, the uber tasty meat, and the unimaginable stuffing make this lechon all hail superior!




Even the lechon seems to be happy to share itself!



Come and get me... you know you want to...




AND FINALLY, it's time for me to join my table mates and get on eating.




My plate!!! My trying-hard-not-to-eat-rice plate!!!!!



Later on, dear NINES VS FOOD passed by to bestow on us her Christmas gifts that she baked herself. Yum!!! Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!!!! Don't mind if I some one... or five.




Even if F1 HOTEL MANILA prepared a lovely dessert set-up for us, the sight of a big chocolate cake from GOLDILOCKS is always a happy treat!!!




Kiddies can't help themselves from having a taste of the fudgy and gooey icing!



It was master Mati's birthday the day before  and I'm thankful that the KTG agreed to sing to him using the nummity yum GOLDILOCK'S cake!




I brought a lot of sparklers and candles and decked the GOLDILOCKS cake with it.

You gotta admit that even if there are other more expensive cakes around, GOLDILOCKS is already an institution and it's a classic choice for special events!




Of course, it would be more fun if all January celebrants were given a shiny, shimmering, and splendid greeting by GOLDILOCKS!!!!

Afterwards, it's time for the highlight of our KTG NEW YEAR PARTY....

A movie showing of...... porn... este... a very popular kiddie movie!!!! I actually mentioned it somewhere in this blogpost. He he he he he he!



Andrei and Rain were movie buddies! They are actually the reason why this kiddie movie is being shown now. It was their wish in our last KTG party!




Awww... THE FOOD ALPHABET and my godson are having a tender daddy-hijo moment at their first movie!




The Chinese Adonis and I were having a tender moment too..

... with some puto! He he he he he he he!

I just realized that porn makes me cry.

OH. I'M. JOKING again.



Yub may be devouring some puto but I was concentrated on these scrumptious Yema Tartlets!!! These were mind blowingly good! You have no idea!




The kiddie movie was a great idea dear Spanky!!!

YOWHOOO!
