Cheers 2018, it's the KTG New Year Party at F1 Hotel Manila!

You may notice on how often that I write about KTG, but if you are still wondering who or what KTG means, is that it is really a group of bloggers whom I first met as friends, where I eventually became a part of. I'm proud to say that I have been part of this group since 2013 and I have never been more excited to spend the new year with these guys! 

We're not just a collective, no. We're a family! And my do we have a lot of honored guests as well. This simple gathering of passionate people was held at the lavish, elegant Infinity room at F1 Hotel Manila (aka THE HOME OF THE KTG), where we were not only spoiled by large widescreens to project our karaoke and movie set-up, it's also where we got to devour on their wonderfully crafted food that are tried and tested since KTG name was 'founded' at the hotel a few years ago, as told many times by our present Godfather, Spanky Enriquez.

We also had the opportunity to enjoy the best ham in the city, The Plaza Ham, complete with pandesal and their blockbuster array of sauces to go along with their perfectly cured and sweet slivers of meat.

Of course, we really believe that it's our dear friend Karla Reyes who started the cheese board craze, so our party wasn't complete without La Fromagerie's Raclette and smorgasbord of different cheeses, fruits, nuts and bread!

La Fromagerie at the KTG New Year Party!

Booze is a must at parties in general, and we had unlimited frozen drinks c/o Swizzle Mobile Bar, which is also another thing that Karla was able to provide. Aside from these luscious and perfectly blended frozen cocktails, we also enjoyed a bunch of other drinks. A big shout out to Karla (@quichethecook) for providing drinks like Frozen Mojito and Sangria for the whole gang, as well as Gio Tia of Eater.ph for his bottles of champagne and wine for our table!

Frozen Mojito, anyone?
We made sure the kids and kids-at-heart aren't left out too, thanks to Serenitea and their selection of refreshing tea  and Milo based drinks like Wintermelon, Okinawa, Yakult Green Tea and Milo Dino with Pudding!

It's nice to know that whenever I hang out with the KTG, it's not just about eating and drinking or covering new spots on where best to eat, but it's always a time to celebrate life, learn new things and share knowledge with my fellow KTG peeps. So I'll make sure to find more time so I can see all of you again soon!
