A good employer will always treat her employees by showing how much she appreciates them doing a good job. You know you have a good boss when she does this for her employees. On the menu; Pork Lumpia, Garlic Rice, Brown Rice, Korean BBQ Chicken, Pork Adobo and Banana Lumpia.
I'm so grateful and thankful to cater their wedding. On March 28, 2018 they finally sealed their love to one other witnessed by there family and friends. The venue is very beautiful (like the bride itself) which is "The Lodge" at Traverse Mountain, in Lehi. On the menu are; Caesar Salad, Pork Lumpia, Beef Caldereta, Creamy Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, Mixed Fruits, Non-alcoholic Sunrise drinks and Infused water. To Jeng and Joel thank you very much for trusting me to provide the food at your wedding.
This is by far the most beautiful setup we did. Unicorn birthday theme with Hailey's 2nd birthday last December 29, 2018. Part of my catering service is to help my customers put up their decorations and make the desserts table very presentable and to make sure it goes with the theme. I have fun doing all these things, it feels like I went back to be a kid again and it gives me more ideas to play with my creations. Note to myself not to forget take picture with all the foods and the guests.

Hosted a baby shower for our good friend Joyce last November 18, 2018. We are all excited to be part of this wonderful event. Husband and I are such a good team; he is in-charge with the games and I in-charge with decorations and foods. I think we did a good job putting all of this for Dave and Joyce. Guests had fun and definitely enjoy all the games that my husband put together.

Filipinos love to celebrate anything big or small. So when my good friend and mare Jeannie passed her US Citizenship test and attended her U.S. Citizenship ceremony, we decided to eat at Tres Hombres Grill and Cantina to celebreate. This a Mexican restaurant located at 3298 Highland Dr, Millcreek, UT 84106. After our simple lunch celebration we decided to grab a desserts at Délice Bakery & Café located at 2747 State St, Salt Lake City, UT 84115. We are very satisfied of what we ate. But most of all the bonding we had together. Friends that eat together, stay together. CONGRATULATIONS JEANNIE!
