Hopefully. :) I take it as a good omen that during a typical hotel buffet breakfast this morning, we were seated a few feet from the table of former President Ramos. I went over to say hello (my father was a friend of his from way back when) and chatted with him and several members of his party (some of whom Mrs. MM and her brother had worked with previously) about names and events which I believe may have even pre-dated my birth! :) It was a pleasant exchange, and when asked what I was doing in Cebu, I answered I was donning my lechonero hat today…
Cebu is bustling/crazed today with several of the current crop of presidential and vice presidential candidates, former politicians, etc. in town for a series of events, forums, debates, and what have you. Noynoy Aquino and Mar Roxas are also here today to campaign and attend a fund-raiser planned for them this evening to raise funds to train poll watchers in every barangay in Cebu during the May elections. Cebuanos engaged in business, politics, education, medical and other professional fields are sitting down to one large lugaw and toppings dinner by Chef Derek Dytian tonight. Zubuchon is proud to be a sponsor and will be contributing several lechons to have with the lugaw, and the appetizers will be provided by Margarita Fores.
So with the day starting off with a chance meeting with a former President (and one of the better ones we have had in recent memory), I am hoping that the day will end with the next President and Vice President sinking their teeth into just a bit of that Zubuchon skin. :)
