Drev’s Fun Friday Night with Yellow Cab

I received this invitation from Chin (who belongs to one of my favorite groups, OmnicomMediaGroup) a couple of weeks back. Unfortunately, I seem to have been declining blogger invitations left and right lately due to my after-office responsibilities (which could usually be about school, work or industry organizational meetings).  I didn’t want to decline them again, because as I have mentioned, they’re one of my favorites and they actually found a schedule that would usually be ok for me (a Friday night, wah).

Anyway, this invitation was especially exciting because…I dunno, my mouth watered at the sight of those vegetables on top of a scrumptious-looking Yellow Cab pizza. Which made not going a thousand times harder for me.

In the end, I sent my company’s PR person, Drev, in my stead. (This is an extra-curricular activity, not an official one, haha!)

In any case, it was actually Yellow Cab’s 10th year anniversary and they’ve actually talked about their partnership with Fonterra Food Services, who has been handling Anchor’s dairy products for quite some time now.

One of the things I admire about Yellow Cab is how it’s all-Filipino and has surprisingly stood the test of time. I do not know anyone who does not like Yellow Cab. Well, ok, I actually know a few people that said they don’t like it but they wouldn’t resist a slice when offered anyway. LOL.

One of the things I probably regret is the fact that I have not met these group of bloggers, who happen to be foodies. (I do not belong to the food bloggers’ circles, sadly.) I probably know their blogs, but I’ve never met them in person. Drev seemed to have had so much fun time socializing with them. I just know I’d also enjoy spending time with them. They look like such a fun bunch.

The discussion was about Yellow Cab and its long history with Fonterra, who supplies their dairy needs. Now that I think about it, they do need a lot of dairy products for the dishes they offer.

There were actually so many food shots, but the green on top of this pizza just drew me.

Here, Drev is shown customizing his pizza.

And turning it into a mini burrito. Later, they were led into the kitchen to watch a demo of how Yellow Cab pies are made.

Of course, they start with the dough. Yellow Cab was proud to announce that they only use the freshest ingredients.

And off they went going about their magic. Would you believe the entire process only took less than ten minutes?

Pie doughs!

Aaand I’m getting extra hungry right now, just looking at these photos.

Bloggers got to participate. Drev said that they were asked to make their own pizzas.

Voila!!

The highlighted finished product is one of the best on Yellow Cab’s menu: New York style pizza, sliced into squares.

Thanks so much for this invitation. I just wish I had been there. Drev did say he’s now interested in blogging. Perhaps we could go together on the next one!

(And yeah, except for Sarimanok.PH and Otakufridge.com, where I have other writers, I realized that I shouldn’t send reps for this blog because it’s my journal. Haha! Unless Drev writes as a guest blogger here, and he did promise he will next time.)

    Haha, next time it will be Drev that will do the writing if I can't make it. Kaya now, I included his name in the title eh. I chose him because he's a PR person din so he would know how to socialize.

    We
    are currently giving away a free Webpage in PH (particularly for
    Restaurants/food chains).

    I ask permission to use your photos? Your blog's URL (http://www.skysenshi.com/) will
    appear on the photo,

    with
    clickable link back to your blog.

     

    We are going to get photos of the restaurant/establishment that

    photos to upload in Gerry's grill free webpage.

    Mostly food photos. Interior and exterior of the restaurant
    are also fine if available. And again your URL will appear on it.

    As long as the watermarks I placed on the photos won't be removed, it's fine with me. 🙂
