What: Japanese dinner hosted by Agnes Huibonhua Where: Essensa Towers, Bonifacio Global City
Japanese cuisine took centre stage at an intimate dinner hosted by the gracious honorary consul Agnes Huibonhua at her posh Essensa apartment. After a two-year renovation, her home was resplendent in immaculate allwhite interiors. Swatch doyenne Virgie ramos, and popular Cannes-based couple TETTA Agustin and husband christian bavery, were among the first to arrive. The hostess' elegant table setting featured a golden silk Obi runner and stunning floral centrepieces that mimicked the fabric's colours and patterns. Every course of the Japanese feast was enjoyed on Huibonhua's collection of exquisite Imari plates. The menu featured "California-inspired" Japanese dishes by rachelle Almario's Aburi including their signature aburi nigiri and sushi rolls, mixed tempura, and Wagyu steak, enjoyed with endless champagne.
