We BURP, therefore we are.
December 16, 2012 – a significant date that got us excited for weeks. Finally, our first project, which started from our food blog, Certified Foodies, and our desire to meet new friends who are as fun-loving and curious as we are about food, is about to take off. The Burp Society’s first ever meet-up was happening at last!
It took about two weeks to plan and finalize the guest list. Our host, Cafe 1771 in El Pueblo, invited 12 members of The Burp Society, including me and Ken, for a lavish dinner. Many have signed up and showed their interest to join, but we can only accommodate a few. The night before the meet-up, I was so glad that everyone in the final guest list confirmed their attendance.

I came a few minutes before 6pm (we were booked ‘til 9pm), and the first member of TBS was already there – Potchi. He’s Ken’s schoolmate from Global Culinary and Hospitality Academy, so I’m already familiar with him. We went in and I was amazed by how posh and pretty the interiors of Cafe 1771 are. I hurriedly grabbed my camera to take photos of almost every corner of the restaurant.
December 16, 2012 – a very momentous event for us as we officially kicked things off with our food lovers meet-up group, The Burp Society. The special dinner was held at Cafe 1771 in El Pueblo in Ortigas. Here’s a teaser photo from the first ever TBS meet-up: Stay tuned for our full feature onContinue burping
