I was making it my mission to eat my way through the 7x7 Magazine Big Eat 100 List and guess who showed up in their February Issue?
I was quite shocked to see that I was the only eater that they had interviewed since I knew tons of people were doing the list too.
But Queen of Eats?

Can You Spot Me?

New Mexico is where I learned that they don't play when it come to chile.
Asian Culinary Forum’s Adobo Throwdown
This event is probably the best one to happen. It is where I met some great friends who were there for me up until the end of 2010 and are sure to be there in 2011 and for years to come: Fred, Albert, and Jenny.
Met This Guy…
May 27, 2010 - I got a call on my cell phone at work from my cousin in the Philippines. A little part of me died that day too. The only grandfather I ever knew was gone. Still can’t believe it. I wish you were here, Tatay. I love you.

Met him when he was 21. Now he’s 29.
Looking back, I feel blessed. 2010 was a fantastic year and I only pray that this is only the beginning to many more happy years to come. I wish I could include ALL the great events I attended, but that would take forever, plus it’s almost midnight. Haha! Happy new year everyone and be safe. I can’t wait to see your faces in 2011!!
