The Choice 2018 Award Winners have been announced!


Hey guys! Had to share something quick about last weekend - we finally presented the winners of The People's Choice Awards in the F&B Category last August 4, 2018.

Organized by the number one Food Blog in the Philippines and one of the Top 50 Travel Blogs in the world, Our Awesome Planet, along with WOFEX (World Food Expo) and food collective The KTG (Kain Tulog Gang), we've conducted a survey to determine and recognize the most food establishments, hotels and culinary personalities in the country today.

Some noted successes that The KTG founder / editor and host of Let's Eat from The Philippine Star Spanky Enriquez mentioned was the fact that we've had the most number of survey responses this year (that's 50,000!) plus we got the most attendees from the winner's list as well. It was indeed, a full house at the SMX Convention Center MOA!

So who exactly made the list? Check it out below!

Yes, I was one of the presenters during the ceremony. And no, I don't have photos since I was still recuperating from my 4-hit combo sickness these past few weeks (canker sores, tonsilitis, body ache and sore throat!). Good thing I was able to talk clearly somehow.

Then again, thank you to some of our good friends from the KTG who were able to document the entire program!
