ALWAYS on Sundays is the Brunch Buffet at the Radisson Blu Hotel. It starts with Holy Mass at 10:30 a.m. at the Santa Maria ballroom, followed by a Brunch Buffet at the Feria with a cornucopia of Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines to absolutely tickle the taste buds! You have a wide choice of wines and desserts too!
While dining, give a listen to the music of local artists including the Wonggoys. This brunch event is for the family so bring the kids and let them be enchanted at the Blu Kingdom. There, they’ll meet Thomas Pua, magician par excellence.
If that’s not their thing, let them try coloring corners, or engage in the giant, inflatable jumping island—all hosted by Clown Blu. Kids under 12 enjoy this treat for only Php 650, while tykes under four can enjoy free of charge.
On one such Sunday, we trooped to the Radisson and got the surprise of our lives. It coincided with the birthday of our colleague Jaime Picornell, who was promptly presented with a birthday cake to blow—in the prestigious presence of the hotel bigwigs: general manager Lyle Lewis and his deputees; Ann Olalo, Rica Rellon, and food and beverage director Geev Andre Bahrampoori, and PR angels A-List’s Kaye L.

Radisson Blu promises your Sundays will never be the same again. Call tel. no. 402-9900 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there!
We have anticipated Swiss National Day at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel for the past six years and kept our calendars open for this top-rated, superbly-attended food fest and cultural event, called Swissness From A to Z.
Credit goes to hotel general Hans Hauri, who with wife Bo has successfully promoted his country, as a great Swiss hotelier should. Carry on. Hans!
Swiss Ambassador to the Philippines Ivo Sieber, who is married to a Filipina, also said that the Philippines has the second largest Swiss overseas community in the world, for which he was cheered by his countrymen at the cocktails/dinner. And what a dinner that was ! Get a load of these: liver dumpling soup, Salsiz and the air-dried Alpine beef, Rippil and boiled beef, poached fish in dill sauce, Spatzie and the all-time favorite, mouth-watering Raclette cheese in all its melted glory!
We loved everything Swiss—the alphorn, bonfires, cowbells and Cathedral bells and Swissy the Cow and your hero, William Tell. Happy 721st year Swiss federation!
