That hostess with full of surprises for her guests, always comes up with different ideas and menus for her dinners and lunches.

Marieliese Evaristo recently threw a belated birthday luncheon for her pal, Nene Leonor, no less, palanggas, at the upscale Red Lantern Chinese Restaurant at Solaire Resort and Casino in Parañaque City.

Guests had a fantastic and sumptuous dimsum buffet that left the ladies wanting more. That’s how good it was, dahlings. Appetizers were the ever-must-have Peking Duck, fritters and wanton dimsum. Then the main course included (roll call time!) sweet and sour pork, minced duck with lettuce, minced pork with eggplant, lemon chicken with extra lemon sauce, beef hofan noodles, fried spare ribs, salted fish fried rice and crispy noodles with assorted seafood.

Then the calorie counting was thrown out the window, dahlings, when it was time for the delectable desserts kataifi, sesame balls and sansrival cake. 







Naturellement, Marieliese E. introduced Marcy David’s band with his two singers who belted out fabulous operatic and romantic songs, which entertained the guests.

Presidential Legal Adviser Sal Panelo, a good balladeer, also took center stage and sang for the celebrator together with George Sarakinis, who sang a la Elvis Presley.

 Now, how can anyone not enjoy a bash like this, palanggas? Guests had a blast with good food and warm company of friends. All for everyone’s favorite host Marieliese Evaristo and the honoree Nene Leonor, palanggas.
