I was immediately ecstatic the other day upon hearing about this food writing workshop called “The Power of Pen” happening on March 19-20 at the Fully Booked, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig.

I didn’t realize that such food writing workshops do exist in the Philippines, thanks to Brian for the heads up. I immediately emailed the indicated contact info to ask about the details.
