Semestral break is here. Halloween is coming in a few days and we can all start to say hello to Sweet November. This only means one thing, THE HOLIDAY SEASON HAS STARTED. 

Aside from my birthday, this is my favorite time of the year when everyone seems to be a bit kinder, happier and positive. There is more time to spend with family and friends with the unending parties and celebrations. 

If you a bit short of ideas for your next get-together, Seasons, Manila Pavilion Hotel’s lifestyle restaurant welcomes the start of the holiday season with its first themed dinner buffet starting last October 23. A festive selection of Italian dishes exclusively prepared by a naturally born Italian himself, executive chef Giovanni Sias and his award-winning culinary team.
