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.
