As of this writing, my fangirl hangover has yet to wear off after meeting my favorite Fun Taiwan host Janet Hsieh and the cute kitchen duo Tom and Henry Herbert a.k.a. the Fabulous Baker Brothers in the flesh. Thanks to TLC for bringing them over to Manila and giving Random Republika access to their exclusive activities. With the TLC hosts was food blogger and restaurateur Erwan Heussaff who’s currently the brand ambassador of TLC in Southeast Asia. (Erwan also has his food segments on TLC entitled Food Fix.)

with the Fabulous Baker Brothers Tom and Henry Herbert! Yep, they are FABULOUS! 🙂

I had the privilege of having photos taken with these stars last Friday at the TLC appreciation dinner but I was such a fan I had to ask for another photo op when I got the chance.

The TLC Festival 2015, an outdoor festival patterned after its Singapore version last September, was held last Saturday, November 21, at the Bonifacio High Street. It was such an experience to go crazy over workshops and live celebrity demos and share the fun with fellow fans of the leading travel and lifestyle channel. If you missed this, stay tuned for upcoming TLC events. Visit tlcasia.com for program information and like them on Facebook for promos and program and event updates!

TLC is channel 62 on SkyCable and channel 29 on Cignal TV.

The Baker brothers also did a live demo of a beef sandwich. They were distractingly cute I missed out on what the sandwich was called. 😉

Touching to see how sensitive the event was to the plight of Parisians. Festival participants were given the chance to offer prayers for the victims.
