Special thanks to Tim Ramos for letting us (with blogger mentor & buddy Hoshi) cover the event amidst our newspaper production, to Ms. Twinky Lagdameo for accomodating us dearly and to Mr. C for inviting us to dine with him (along with other artists) and letting us experience dining with one of the most respected pillars in the Phillippine music industry.
