21 Jun2011

Hi Everyone. We’re back in Manila and completely out of sorts from the just over a week trip to the U.S. east coast, plus a 1,100 kilometer road trip through 10+ different colleges and universities, and a mad shopping list of blenders, knives, mandolines, salad spinners and assorted kitchen doodads. I emailed folks last week who had signed up for the eyeball, and I hope you all got that email (if not, check your spam folders). So far, these are the confirmations our Manager at Zubuchon has received. If you haven’t replied, kindly do so if you are planning NOT to attend. Otherwise, if we don’t hear from you, we will assume you are coming to lunch or dinner, as planned. Best to bow out now, rather than be a “NO-SHOW” so we don’t waste food or other preparations. It has been raining a lot in Cebu this past week, and another storm is heading North, so I am hoping for better weather on Saturday. Please dress CASUALLY and in sneakers or shoes you would use in a GARDEN setting. No heels or fancy shmancy footwear, please. Thanks, and see you all soon!

As of today, here is the list of confirmed guests for the LUNCH AT THE MANGO OUTLET for June 25th, Saturday, 11am. Please come at 11am so that we finish lunch early before the second eating session in the evening a few hours later…

Rosemd (1) Coming to dinner.
Moni (1)
Aisa (2)
Lee (1)
Chrisb (1)
Anne (1)
Irene (2)
Enrico (2)
Belinda (1)
Marketman & family & guests (7-8)
Total guests for lunch : 19-20 

Vanette (2) Unable to attend.
Patrick f (yazi) (2) Confirmed for lunch.
Shainna (3)
EvAv (1) Confirmed for lunch.
Eileen (1) Unable to attend.
Ella (4) Confirmed for lunch.


This is the list of CONFIRMED GUESTS for the EYEBALL DINNER, location disclosed to participants by email. Please come at 630pm so you can have a drink or two before dinner is served. And send your eggs (chicken, silly) to the nuns if you want to help ward off the rains. My ancestors have been good in the past, always providing shower free events, but I suspect I am up against serious rainclouds this week…

    The weather here in Cebu for the last few days has been unpredictable, if anything.

    So what’s the worst case scenario, MM? Y’know, if it does actually rain.

  8. Carpenter Girl says:

    Can’t wait! I’ll be sending a tray or two to the convent for us to have good weather. We’ll see if the Marketman’s army can help ward off the bad weather.

    apparently the nuns dont take eggs anymore (cholestorol and high blood pressure issues).

    they gladly receive canned goods however.
