    MM I never lose my desire to indulge in lechon, but unfortunately I won’t be back to Cebu until the new year. Hope everyone who attends has a great time! It will be fun to read all about it.

  3. mary joan says:

    Hi MM! please include my husband in the list. Thanks and we’re really looking forward to it! By the way, do we move to another location just in case the rain gods are jealous of our feast, and send rain to spoil it?

    Sep 22, 2008 | 8:15 am

  4. Marketman says:

    Mary Joan, no problem, will include your husband on list. If it rains, we end up in a covered garage on the same premises… It’s closer to the lechonan, actually… :)

    Sep 22, 2008 | 8:21 am

  5. Socky says:

    Hi, MM. Am confirming my attendance. Will bring a friend whose accummulated hotel points am taking advantage of. :-)

    Socky, great! Add two seats for you and friend. That’s up to 35 guests, confirmed. :)

    As a MarketManila eyeball ‘regular’ (if there is such a thing after only 2 eyeballs, hehe) I feel really bad I won’t make it to the grandest one yet. But I’m happy for those who will be attending, I see familiar names on the list… I’m sure you’ll all have a great time!

    Sep 22, 2008 | 11:06 am

  9. Lee says:

    wow joey of 80 breakfasts!

    i’m a fan of your food pics. very dramatic closeups of food with narrow depth of field… what camera and lens do you use?

    Sep 22, 2008 | 12:11 pm

  10. Edik says:

    MM please count me in. Sorry for this delayed reply. I was out somewhere where there is no internet connection. I have reserved 15 Nov for this occasion. Thanks.

    Sep 22, 2008 | 3:33 pm

  15. AleXena says:

    The pig seem’s to be sticking it’s tongue at me as if saying “behlat you can’t come!”=(

    But I wish all those that will go to the EB this November good weather and all the enjoyment they could get…

    Come to think of it, who wouldn’t enjoy getting cholesterol through their system! hehehe=) Those of us in Manila will just have to hope for a repeat here.

    Post us some pics of the food=)

    Sep 22, 2008 | 3:47 pm

  16. Marketman says:

    moni, okay, no problem, edik, will add you onto the list, ivy and friend, you make it onto list as well :)…

    Sep 22, 2008 | 3:50 pm

  17. Myra P. says:

    MM, I would love to go, but I am still unable to confirm my schedule around that time!
    :( What’s my rsvp deadline?

    Sep 22, 2008 | 8:23 pm

  18. Marketman says:

    Myra P., will save a seat for you, just let me know a couple of weeks beforehand if you can’t make it.

    Sep 22, 2008 | 9:33 pm

  19. Tricia says:

    I would really really love to go but the construction of our house is on the finishing stage already ;(

    Sep 22, 2008 | 10:25 pm

  20. Tricia says:

    Haaay… sad sad sad.

    Sep 22, 2008 | 10:26 pm

  21. Marketman says:

    Tricia, no problem, another time… good luck with the house, will you be moving in by the Christmas holidays?

    Sep 23, 2008 | 7:03 am

  22. Tricia says:

    Yes! It’s gonna be our first Christmas in our own house so I’m quite excited in getting those Christmasy stuff! :)

    Speaking of Christmas, part of the reason I want to go to the eb is because it’s for your feeding program, like the Mamou event. Can I make a donation even without going? Or you have a fund raising event in December?

    Sep 23, 2008 | 9:19 am

  23. The Steak Lady says:

    Hi MM, sorry it took me a while to respond bec i was trying to fix my schedule. Unfortunately, the 15th is in between my trips to cebu :(( im scheduled to go home for all souls, and the 23rd for my Lola’s bday. I was really really looking forward to it though! I’m sure it’s gonna be a GREAT Lechon EB! You guys have fun!!! :-)

    Sep 23, 2008 | 10:57 am

  24. Marketman says:

    The Steak Lady, no problem at all… sounds like you are on a fairly hectic commute to Cebu! There will be another time, I am sure. Tricia, I haven’t figured out this year’s charitable effort yet, will post something if it makes sense, but thanks for asking!

    Sep 23, 2008 | 11:35 am

  25. ivy says:

    yey!!!!! thanks…. i’m excited for it.

    Sep 23, 2008 | 12:31 pm

  26. caryn says:

    MM! i love lechon! kaka-inggit! i wish i could go. i hope everybody enjoys the eyeball ;-) loved your post on lechon sarsa btw.

    Sep 23, 2008 | 12:37 pm

  27. mrs. a says:

    If you still have slots open, my husband and I would like to come. We’re looking for an excuse to go back to Cebu (aside from all the places that I said we should eat in).

    Sep 23, 2008 | 1:32 pm

  28. kasseopeia says:

    Hello MM! I will be out of the country 1st week to the 3rd week of November for work. Nakakainis!!! I’ve already set aside mine and Uyab’s contribution to the EB so I’ll just send it anyway. The children in school need food more than I do, that’s for sure! Hehe. I left my email address up there, in case you’d accept the donation from Little Miss No-Show (aka ME!).

    Have fun! I’ll drool over the photos and all the blog entries but what the hey! There’s always next time!

    Sep 23, 2008 | 4:18 pm

  29. Marketman says:

    kasseopeia, no problem at all. Have a great trip. Mrs. a, yes, I have added two seats for you up top. :)

    Sep 23, 2008 | 6:21 pm

  30. mrs. a says:

    Great! We’re looking forward to it. Just in case our 5-year old son would like to come along (especially if he finds out that we’ll be staying at the Marco Polo), would it be okay to bring him to lunch?

    Sep 23, 2008 | 6:51 pm

  31. doy says:

    Hello! Aabot pa kaya ako? Can you still reserve 2 people?

    Sep 23, 2008 | 8:22 pm

  32. Apicio says:

    And don’t forget to serve some of that invigorating Vienna sausage soup for Lee.

    Sep 23, 2008 | 8:54 pm

  33. lee says:

    Apicio: Might venture the day after the eyeball to nearby Marjo’s for bulalo…

    WARNING! Do not order Vienna sausage soup in Spain. The main ingredients depend on who wins the bullfight.

    Sep 23, 2008 | 11:00 pm

  34. toping says:

    MM, a friend from Manila has expressed interest in meeting up with me in Cebu around the time of the eyeball. I would love to have him come along and experience all that lechon. I have two seats reserved, but would it be possible to add one more? I only ask that you hold it for me at least 2-3 weeks before the event, so I can confirm if my friend can indeed make it (his line of work involves irregular hours, you see).

    Sep 23, 2008 | 11:19 pm

  35. Katrina says:

    We are confirmed!!! To be honest, we weren’t sure we’d be able to go, and were hoping Cebu Pacific would have a promo. And lo and behold, last Friday, Felipe just happened to hear on the radio that CP was giving away domestic tickets absolutely free! He immediately called me, and I booked online as soon as I could. I also texted our friends about it, but apparently the free tickets for that weekend were gone in a flash. It’s as if we were fated to eat our fill of lechon! I’m so excited to taste the result of your experimentation, and very much looking forward to meeting even more MM fans! :-D

    Sep 24, 2008 | 1:17 am

  36. Marketman says:

    Hi Everyone, RESERVATIONS ARE CLOSED. Due to a couple of emails I received yesterday, We have more than 45 reserved seats and I can’t take any more at this point in time. Doy, unfortunately, I can’t fit two more right now, but your name is at the top of the “waitlist” and I will inform you 1 month before the event if others drop out, THANKS!

    Sep 24, 2008 | 6:03 am


    mm can i still join. i went out of town so i was not able to open my computer.

    Sep 24, 2008 | 3:17 pm

  38. Marketman says:

    John Paul, let me put you as second on the waitlist… some people may cancel and I will email you as soon as I can… many thanks!

    Sep 24, 2008 | 3:37 pm

  39. cai says:

    Oh man!! Can I be on the waitlist too?

    Sep 24, 2008 | 4:58 pm

  40. Marketman says:

    cai, you are third on the waitlst. :)

    Sep 25, 2008 | 10:30 am

  41. lee says:

    I have this strange feeling that I am first on the weight list.

    Sep 25, 2008 | 2:58 pm

  42. cai says:

    Oh, sorry Marketman kindly take me out of the list. I might not be able to make it after all. Next time!! Thanks!

    Sep 25, 2008 | 3:00 pm

  43. Marketman says:

    lee, HAHAHA. We could always do a before and after weigh in at the event! cai, no problem, just zapped you from #3… :)

    Sep 25, 2008 | 4:07 pm

  44. Feyoh says:

    Hi MM, confirming my attendance on Nov. 15th.

    Sep 25, 2008 | 8:11 pm

  45. Marketman says:

    Feyoh, yup, got you on the list up top… see you then.

    Sep 26, 2008 | 11:47 am

  48. FKARRMD says:
