Finoy Foodies - June Book Discussion
Because we love food second to books (order of importance may change depending on time of day), the Flippers will tackle a culinary theme this June. To narrow down the countless choices of books, we zoom in on Filipino food.
See you all
on June 20, 2009. Saturday. 2PM
at Katre Mediterranean Restaurant, 103 Dr. Lascano St. Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City
