Quezon BonPen Festival 2011

Naku. first time ko maga-out of town with the bloggers.

Naimbitahan po kasi ang inyong lingkod na mag-cover ng isang event sa 4rd district of Quezon. Balita ko, cooking contest ito na gagamit ng Goat Meat at Guinea Fowl. Tunog pa lang, masarap na. Magja-judge ata ang grupo ng bloggers kasama ng pag-cover ng Fiesta doon.

Sa totoo lang, hindi ko maintindihan ang details. Buti na lang, isang dating kasama sa Lasalle Aspirancts ang mga nagpadala ng sulat. Sobrang excited ako na makita siya ulit.

Tapos, meron pa daw fun run na gaganapin. Sabi ng coach ko, tatakbo daw sila doon. FYI po, ang coach ko na si Coach Adrian Arcaya ay tubong Quezon. Southern Treaders ang team namin at tatlo ata sa team namin ang tatakbo doon. Gusto ko rin sana tumakbo. Sana, may race kit sila para sa akin.

Eto nga pala ang kanilang festival schedule.
