BBQ Night: a Test of Fun Family Business


Dry run, soft opening, marketing strategy or kasal ko – ano man ang naging impression ng aming nakaraang Post Valentine’s Day  BBQ Night, for me it’s a fun and successful test of my siblings’ lucrative family business.   And I’m very thankful to all our friends who support that first ever eat all you can barbecue extravaganza.

We’re blessed na magkaroon ng maluwag na garden na usually ay parking lot ng laruan, sasakyan, doggy,  toys, leaves and in short, tambayan. It’s easy to say na mai-convert ito sa semi grill bar but in reality, naku po!  Matrabaho.   Triple thumbs up ( kasama na ang hinlalaki sa kanang paa) kina Kuya Marlon Laristan at sa cast ng sabihin muna nating MeMaMa’s (pwede ring AnCiaLhon’s) Grill na sina Jimmy, Jimboy and Vincent Buwa ( family friends) sa  paglilinis at pagse-set up.

BBQ  Night Marcial LaristanHindi sa pagbubuhat ng green mono block chair (modern bangko hohoho), given na yung nag-o-offer sila ng fresh, clean and superbly cook Barbecue products. Pero ibang-iba rin kapag may event at buffet pa- parang pabrika ang production set up. Since  mga friends ang aming inimbitahan ‘di mo masabi yung confirmed na pupunta. Dito ko rin napatunayan yung natural tendency ng mga Pinoy ng pagiging indecisive at yung magtatanong muna kung sinu-sino ang nandyan?  Nevertheless, that’s part of our test and I commend my older (kailangan ipagdiinan) siblings-Mary Ann Gonzales, Marcial Laristan, and Kuya Marlon plus his wife (sister-in-law Susan)  sa kanilang  food preparation.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATrue, entrepreneurship is not a laughing matter.  I’m so nervous that night kasi  gusto ko maging successful and I really pray na ma-satisfy ang mga customers/friends namin. And talaga naman parang estudyante lang, kung kailan ka nagka-cramming dun mo napapansin yung tiny but important details.

I appoint myself bilang host/ MC/ entertainer .  Kung bakit naman talaga kahit anong piga ko sa kokote ko na gumawa ng matinong script or program, waley!  The good thing may na-compose naman akong poem (abangan sa kabilang blog).  And hopefully, kahit kakapiranggot na smile ay napangiti ko ang lahat sa gabing ‘yon.

Mayroon pa ba BBQ Night ulit? I’m sure and bonggang-bongga pa.
