... he is the Kuya of all Kuyas!
We finally got to meet him last October when he and his wife, Sylvia, came to Manila to attend a seminar and make some rounds of the sights that they missed the last time they visited (together).
In an idle conversation in Davao, he told Juds that one of the things he remembered about his days in Manila (decades ago) was the chicken dish in the Savory Restaurant. So when we learned that he was planning to visit and have VT Dinner with us, Aida (aka Asianbelle) reserved a table for us at the Savory Restaurant in Cubao. Unfortunately, Aida had a conflicting appointment across the city so was unable to join.
In attendance were Juds, Yen, Cess, Claire, Monina, Pres, Doc Allelli and her friend, Kuya Carlito and Ate Sylvia (C.'s wife).
Well, time and recipe awaits for no man... Kuya Carlito found the memory of his favorite Savory chicken did not match the reality of his dinner. :) When we asked the head chef about the elusive dish we found out that the old recipe had been adjusted to suit the modern palate. Sad to say they only serve the "original recipe" upon advance request and that only a couple of branches still know how to do it... but we didn't know that. Despite the failed chicken and Carlito reunion the dinner went off to a resounding success. Kuya and the Manila girls immediately bonded together and banter sailed back and forth over noodles, chicken and vegetable dishes.
Kuya and Ate Sylvia promised to come back for a visit again as soon as they can and we promised to make the time for them.
... It was so grand to finally see you Kuya of the thousand Pomelos.
Kuya Carlito's first VT event was the VT Christmas activity in 2008. He was there as a Virtual Attendee (VA).
