Nestle Philippines recently invited selected (not to mention lucky) bloggers to an exclusive bloggers’ Christmas party held at the Nestle Philippines main office in Rockwell Center, Makati City. Ms. Aurora Alipao, Nestle Consumer Services Head warmly welcomed the bloggers who came. Being a Nestle Club member for so many years now, it felt like coming home to a long lost relative after seeing the different improvements on the Julius Maggi Kitchen where the said party was held. You see, I used to frequent the JMK before I had considered taking my pastry and baking courses back then. I remember taking down notes even if the Nestle staff would be giving out printed recipes. And yes, I could recall the free flowing of Nescafe coffee or Milo from the vendo machine. Oh, it’s so nice to reminisce the old times!

There was even a game where bloggers were divided into two teams, there were questions about nutrition and we just had to answer true or false. While having fun, it was great in a way because we’re able to learn more about nutrition as Nestlé’s resident nutritionist was there to explain to us everything. In the end, even if we lost the game, we gained some information on proper nutrition.

Purple Plum Fairy thanks Ms. Lariza Garcia, Ms. Au Alipao, Chef Tess Sutillo, Ms. Lace, Ms. Leslie, Sir Lester and all the Nestle executives who made us felt like real family that day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
