From Mushrooms to Banana Leaves



A couple of weeks ago we had Marco Lobregat in Cocktales.


Marco is a fashion and commercial model, turned corporate guy, turned entrepreneur. He started a company that grows and sells mushrooms. It’s called Ministry of Mushrooms.


Yes this is the same dress I wore to the vintage circus birthday party. I’m a shameless repeater. Besides, I wore it in the show first. Not that it matters. It’s from K&Company. (By the way, K&Co now has a branch in Alabang Town Centre. Yay!)

Cocktales executive producer Giselle Ordinario with Marco.




Last week we had my friend Rommel Juan, the owner and creator of Binalot.


It was hard to concentrate during the interview while talking about adobo, pritong bangus, tapa and all our favourite comfort food. Plus salted egg. All conveniently wrapped in smoked banana leaves. Oh my. Cita and I seriously got hungry. Haha.


Our version of wacky. Shoot us! haha. (Wearing a cute K&Company dress printed with tiny giraffes, or maybe they’re llamas.)



Cocktales airs every Sunday night at 9:30pm on AksyonTV. (UHF ch. 41, SkyCable ch. 59, Destiny Cable ch. 7, cignal ch. 1). With replays the following Sunday 12nn. You can catch Rommel’s replay this Sunday. And if you’re abroad, you can see Cocktales via TV5’s international channel.
