A year-end thanksgiving

A glamorous group of ladies lovingly called “JL and Co.” recently held a delightful year-end thanksgiving of sorts at No. 8 China House at the Grand Hyatt Manila in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The gathering was a celebration of your columnist and my long-time friends from the business and social sectors amid the restaurant’s delicious array of Cantonese dishes.

No. 8 China House is Metro Manila’s latest destination for authentic Chinese cuisine.  Guests enjoyed the very modern space with show kitchens and live stations where we marveled at the feast being prepared before us, the star of which was the Peking Duck, which was slow-roasted in a specially built wood-fired oven.

It was an unforgettable celebration of friendship and fine food.

Thank you for a wonderful night, ladies! *
