Look of presidential love?

Manila (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN) - An audiophile with a most impressive CD collection and a music lover, President Benigno Aquino III watched the Sergio Mendez concert last week, seated beside his rumored lady love Grace Lee-but only for about five minutes before the concert.

During the concert, P-Noy's good friend sat in between them the rest of the concert. Was that some body language or no big deal at all? Together, yet not so together-noted people who were Aquino-watching during the concert... Is this, as Sergio Mendez's music goes, the Look of Love?

Filipino pastry chefs shine in Singapore food event

The Pastry Alliance of the Philippines once again showed mettle and heart at Singapore's Food & Hotel Asia (FHA) event held April 17-20.

Jehan Damasco's "Our Garden," featuring elements from her beloved Nueva Vizcaya and proudly Filipino in theme, earned a Silver medal for the Wedding Cake category.

Christopher Borja won a Bronze for his eye-catching modern Japanese "Tsuru Wa Sennen," a wedding cake with kimono patterns and precisely folded sugar origami cranes.

Clyden San Pedro cinched a Silver for his Plated Desserts ensemble: Pandora's Box, an all-white cold plate of Hawaiian macadamia, pineapple and coconut; Camouflage, a verrine of mango-passion, granola and green tea sponge; Metamorphosis, pistachio baklava with apricot and orange blossom Turkish delight; and Kaleidoscope, an Italian vegan dessert of berry-poached apple and soy panna cotta.

At the most coveted and hardest-fought eight-hour live battle that is the Asian Pastry Cup, the Shangri-La duo of Bryan Dimayuga and Rizalino Manas bested 11 other national teams to be honored with the Best in Professional Skills Award for their Kids At Play Plated Desserts, Chocolate Cakes, Chocolate and Sugar Showpieces.

Next in line is Miko Aspiras, PAP's representative to the World Association of Chefs Societies Congress in Daejeon, Korea, on May 1-5.
