I love the smell of xylitol in the morning

This morning marked the second leg of 2nd Avenue’s Today@Breakfast office tour. It didn’t push through in the Ortigas area as originally planned, but it’s a good thing  we were able to find an alternative venue  much closer to our office – the RCBC Plaza Courtyard.

Just like last May, this breakfast event was supposed to promote The Today Show, although I bet most people in attendance weren’t even aware of the fact because their eyes were mostly transfixed to the free food.

And just like last May, the event was sponsored by Orbit  (Oh, excuse me: Orbit Xylitol Sugarfree Gum) – which explains the  product samples strategically placed on the tables. Thankfully, the show was spared from feeling like a 3-hour commercial.

Entertainment was provided by jazz artist Olivia once again. She has the voice of an angel, but she needs someone to write her spiels for her, fast. (Kumusta pagkain? Sarap?) Conspicuously absent, though, was Aisaku Yokogawa, the Manila-based Japanese crooner who is known to sing Tagalog songs albeit thickly-accented.

Oh, but it was great working with host Anna Buena (AKA Danielle from RX 93.1) again. Being the resident scriptwriter, I always make it a point to make friends with the event hosts, and she was no exception. And of course , always count on the 2nd Avenue team to be a fun bunch. You could lock all of us in a bomb shelter and still have a party. 😉

It’s these things that really perk up my mornings.
