It was a gathering in the House of Buchi in Davao once more, and to this invitation, I will never decline my attendance for a reason that is so obvious. Just like Anavi would say, “To get Jinggoy to come just say the magic word.”
But if you don’t know me too well or don’t know me at all, the magic word is one of these:
a. Hakao
b. Friends
c. Dimsum
d. Love
e. Japan
f. Issey
e. Miyake
g. BaoBao
h. Tokyo
i. India
j. Yoga
k. Buchi
l. Love
m. Siopao
n. Paris
o. Cartier
p. Venice
q. Prada
r. Prague
s. Crystal
t. Kyoto
u. Sakura
v. Turkey
w. Gucci
x. Florence
y. Gyoza
z. Ramen
For lunch, Lotus court prepared a special menu to highlight their popular dishes. As if the Dabawenyos are not craving for these, they came up with promotions this Kadayawan  to make sure they sate everyone’s palate for the delectable cuisine Davao has fallen in love with.
From the Dimsum Promotion & Crab Promotion, we had the Steamed Shrimp Dumpling (Hakao), Pork & Shrimp Siomai, the soup in a bun Shao Lung Pao & the Seafood Taro Puff.  Soup was the Szechuan Hot and Sour Soup.
Main Course: Stir-Fried Tseisim with Three kinds of Egg, Braised Homemade Tofu with Enoki Mushrooms & Broccoli. Then the three crab dishes  (from the long list of crab dishes the have in their menu) from their Up for Crabs Promotion were served –Deep Fried Crabs “Hong Kong” Style, Stir-Fried Crabs with Ginger & Onion & Braised Crabs with Vermicelli.
And the most important part of the meal- Dessert! We had the Chilled Mango Sago & the dish the reason I came-Sesame Balls Stuffed with Dark Chocolate (which Lotus Court Manager had to order a second serving so the rest of my colleagues can try it. Tee-hee).

The “Diners at the Round Table”:
Mike Dakudao, AMy Cabusao & Lotus Court’s main man, Arvin Dizon.
Kenneth Ong, Meg Sta. Ines & Ian Garcia
Maya Padillo, Rhonson Ng & Patty Basa
