Living The Story — In 6 Minutes

posted by in Uncategorized


A recipe for a blog in 6 steps viewed in 6 minutes.


This is the video currently being shown in all Fully Booked Stores as part of my stint as brand ambassador which began this month. The video is part of Fully Booked’s campaign called Live The Story and it tells my story. The 12-hour shoot was shot last month and it was fittingly called, “Dessert” as you can see in the clapper photo above.

This is a fun little video that details some of my absolute favorite desserts and my coffee of choice, as well as some of my other favorite things, things that might surprise you since it’s not all about food. To watch the video, you can click on the link above, or watch it here in HD, or just watch it on YouTube.

Don’t forget that you’re entitled to book discounts for the duration of my gig as Fully Booked brand ambassador. Check out my monthly book picks highlighted by the image on the sidebar and my twice-monthly book reviews.

Big thanks go to Pelicola TV and BigTop Productions, especially director King Palisoc and his team who made the shoot so much fun, and of course, Fully Booked which has supported me since Dessert Comes First began.

  • It was great hearing you speak, your bubbly personality and enthusiasm for food is so contagious. You speak the way you write, vividly and articulately. Like you, I am a cookbook/food lit/crime and gore/travel book fan. Hope to finally meet you someday whether in Manila or HK over a cup of coffee and dessert (or dimsum, or pork knuckle, or a bowl of steaming hot noodles, or roast duck, or cha siu rice and the list goes on and on….)!

  • I’ve gotta echo the others on how enviably toned your arms are, Lori! You really are a natural in front of the camera. You’re just like the way you are in person. :-)

    Angelo,
    My best friend said the same thing when he saw the video and I just thought he was being biased. Thanks for watching the video!

  • Hi!Lori. I’m not really the type who makes comments or send messages on food blogs but with you and for the Dessert Comes First,I guess, I have to eat my words ;) I simply can’t resist just like my craving for a dessert!!!I have been visiting your food blog eversince my friend (Hello!Marion Bernardo)introduced me to your blog. That was 2 yrs ago!..Since then, I’m hooked!I first met you Lori during your Dessert Comes First event last Nov.12, 2011 at Fully Booked Boni High.When you announced that the tickets will be available by Oct. 29 at exactly 2PM, I already asked someone to buy tickets for me and left instructions to be there by 10AM!(We were out -of-town then bec it was a long weekend) Mind you,come Nov.12, I brought along with me my whole family-my husband and my 3 children in tow…Wow! the whole spread was fantastic!.We don’t even know where to put all those calories!It was a delectable dessert-galore experience for the whole family and we truly enjoyed it!CONGRATULATIONS LORI AND TO ALL YOUR PURVEYORS!BRAVO FOR A JOB WELL DONE!!!I’m not sure if you can still recall, but I guess I was the first one to ask for your autograph(too bad I forgot my camera) where you wrote a note for me at the back of my ticket…I was with my daughter then.She was even telling me, “Mom ,are you sure you want to do that?”I was laughing because my daughter found it an unusual act from me.:).Honestly, going there and had your autograph and taking part with food -tasting was well-worth the time and effort..MANY UNTOLD BLESSINGS for you Lori in the years to come..May the Lord continue to use you where He has placed you…It is just my dream(it’s for free,right?:) ) to be one day be a part(in one)of your future Dessert Comes First events..Cheers!
