Pink Kitchen's First Day - A Blast

I woke up a little early yesterday coz I volunteered to lend a hand at the Pink Kitchen ’08. Hubby drove me to the event together with another Icanserve member. We reached the place at the time when all the crews, chefs, and all the food vendors’ supplies were coming in. It was yet a long while before the Rockwell Tent opened to the public but foodies and supporters were already queuing in for admission tickets and were hanging around the entrance, all wanting to be at the outset. I, along with other volunteers was detailed on selling Entrance Tickets. I felt lucky to be assigned here coz I got to see all the people coming in especially the movie/ TV personalities, politicians and all the other rich and famous citizens of the land. I've seen this food festival being patronized mostly by society’s class A & B. I would have wanted to stay till evening when famous singers and entertainers are lined up to do a show, but I wouldn’t want to commute going home coz Hubby wouldn’t wait till evening ( he stayed in his office while waiting for me).

I left my post at 4:00pm and turned over my sales. The total tickets entrusted to me were worth 250,000 pesos. I was quite anxious if I made some errors on doing my job. I didn’t have the chance to count and compute. What if I fell short of a big amount? I prayed and hoped positively! And the acting treasurer started counting the remaining tickets, compute, then counts the money, then counts again and again... “Looks like we have a problem… it doesn’t tally”. Yes, I did see it. The total money was over by 1000 pesos. “What shall we do with this?” He asked. Someone from the other table suggested receiving the money, indicating and acknowledging the excess amount on my endorsement slip. Oh well, that gave me the feeling of relief.

I entered the Tent and looked around. The ambiance was bright and lively. Patrons were crowding food booths. I have taken only few photos when my cam went pfft! The culprit? Discharged battery. Sigh!! Anyway, I've witnessed the success of the Pink Kitchen's first day and Im' sure, the second and final day would be an uncontrollable explosion. The biggest blast ever!
