363: Host

Tonight I played host to the Davao Writers Guild for our annual Christmas party. I don’t usually have people over so this occasion was a rarity. I went about the preparations in my own very guy fashion: no frills basic. Still, I don’t think I did too badly. I borrowed tables and chairs from my sister and they came with colorful tablecloths. Distinguished guests tonight included Tita Lacambra Ayala, Aida Rivera Ford, and Macario Tiu, not to mention other guild stalwarts. It was fun playing host.

For our potluck I prepared slow-cooked pulled beef spare ribs. It would have been pulled pork but I remembered that we might have a Muslim member over so I changed recipes. The dish was a success because most of it was gone by the end of the night. What can I say except…yata!
