PATIS TITO GARDEN Cafe…


Patis Tito Garden Cafe

“Good food is all the sweeter, when shared with friends.”

The word Patis Tesoro is a name I will always remember because of this fancy dream to have my wedding gown done by Tesoros. I wished for it because I learned that the whole entourage of my mom was by Tesoros. Her wedding dress was handmade and was a pina. It is a kind of fabric meant for gowns and “Barong tagalog” for men.

June 30, 1968...

Said dream didn’t manifest but I could not exchange my wedding gown for anything.

(–,)

It was sewn by my mama and the swarovkis from Italy was carefully taken cared of my cousins. I wanted to do it but according to the elders, the bride is not supposed to touch her wedding gown, only on the wedding day itself when she’s about to wear it for the ceremony.

I wished I was already good at photography then.. I could have taught the photographers on angles, close-up shots, etc.

To their hearts’ content, I obediently complied. It’s just that they can’t stop me from monitoring everything from the veil down to the train of my wedding gown. Aside from swarovkis there are also showers of small pearls and ecru beads that came with it.

And I was supposed to be blogging about Patis and Tito’s garden restaurant in San Pablo.

It is such a happy feeling to land your feet on the ground of a place where an artist (s) lives. There is a different aura. Every corner will speak for themselves that the dwellers are lovers of art.
