Guesting at Poptalk GMA News TV

A friend of mine asked for a food blogger to volunteer and be part of Poptalk. It seems that Poptalk will be invading the food markets and wanted to know what people thought about it.

Call time was at 6am and I fell asleep at 230am. Yep, kape kape din pag may time was my drama. So I was there at 610 am and there was no one there except the Make Up Artist or MUA as she is fondly referred to. At around 630a, guess who took a stroll inside the meeting place? It was none other than Gian Magdangal.


I am truly happy that it was Gian who was the celebrity guest because I have always admired him as a singer and an actor who did not air out any personal problems he may have even though he was a celebrity. After we were made up and fed, we proceeded to the first market which was Centris Walk.

Centris Walk  is not just a food market but a hobnob of other things as well. You can buy fresh produce, clothes, hats, bags, plants, and other food items. Here are some behind the scenes shot of our time at Centris Walk.

After gorging on food, we then trooped to Legazpi Market. Now, I have to admit that I was more comfortable with Legazpi Market than Centris simply because it was in Makati and the tents were high and I could feel the breeze flowing in. They also had roaming guards which made me feel more secure.

The variety of purchases that can be made was also wider and I couldn't help but explore.










Our last stop of the day was Mezza Norte. Luckily, we had a 3 hour rest between Legazpi and Mezza Norte because by the time we were done with Legazpi Market, we were so full we could feel our pants literally bursting. Literally! The food was simply awesome. Shrimps were fresh and the bagnet was sinful.

Mezza Norte is located near Trinoma and SM North. It is another weekend market, this time, catering to the people of the North. I liked this market coz eventhough it was raining, you could barely feel it. The place had a huge tent covering and there were a lot of trash bins, ensuring that there won't be any litter. They also had very active and fast staff that cleaned up after every table.









This was truly a WONDERFUL experience for me. I saw how the shows are made and the hardship and efforts of the staff. I have more appreciation now for the tv shows I see and I definitely have more appreciation for celebrities who need to maintain an image even though they may just wanna lie down and rest.

Thank you Poptalk for this wonderful opportunity! Thank you GMA!
