The string of Christmas celebrations for the Yuletide season culminated with the much awaited Frenzy Group's Christmas Party recently held at the historic German Club in Makati.
Led by the Frenzy organizers Joanne Matschuck, Joy Fong, Sonny Tanchanco, John Gaddi, Gerard Ramirez and yours truly, the festivities began with a series of parlor games hosted by the vivacious Chuck Gueco.
Classic games such “Bring Me” plus the clever anecdotes of our clever host brought cheers and laughter to everyone. Dining on the traditional German culinary specialties were guests Club Bulakeno PP Milo Bondoc, Chuchi Villar, businesswoman Emmy Gonzalez with daughter Andrea, Caloy and Irene Montemayor, Rising Tigers ' Grace Bondad Nicolas, David and Mache Ackerman and Ambassador Victor Garcia with lovely wife Connie.
After the traditional exchange gifts, the much-awaited raffle was drawn where the grand prize of a round trip to Vietnam donated by Evelyn Salazar Fraser was won by yours truly and Sonny Tanchanco.
Truly the best Christmas party of the season!

Meanwhile, for the past five years businesswoman Emmy Florentino Gonzalez has been hosting her traditional Christmas Day dinner at her posh Magallanes Village home.
We were fortunate enough to be one of the invited guests and this year was no exception. Together with Emmy is children Carlo and wife Rosette, Andrea, Marco and grandchildren Gabe and Rafa and Michael.
Emmy 's longtime friend Evelyn Elliott, our favorite couple Sonny Tanchanco and John Gaddi, Caloy and Irene Montemayor, fab interior designer Cocoy Cordoba and the rest of the Florentino siblings all shared in the sumptuous feast painstakingly prepared by the hostess such as callos, lengua, prince rib, baked salmon and the traditional Filipino fare lechon.
The dinner would not be complete without Emmy 's famous desserts like Mango Jubilee and the famous bread pudding capped off the evenings feast.
Leave it to Emmy she has the best home decor, fabulous setting and Tablescape and great choice of food, overflowing wines and champagne, plus a lot of lovely giveaways. Wow always the best that's why we always look forward to her dinners.
Thank you dearest Emmy. Till next year!
