Unfortunately, Christina Castro (my Kitchen Star partner) did not make it to the Top 6. Tina said it was a memorable and learning experience joining the Wokaholic and working with the country's top Chefs.

Joining ElectroluxPH Wokhalic Kitchen Star was a great experience. Given a limited role in the chef's table all I did is to help my partner/contestant gather votes for the People's Choice Award, still it was fun and exciting! Yes, we didn't make it but there will be more contest like this in the future and I hope to see her again. At the end of the day, me and my bf imagined ourselves wearing an apron and standing in front of the judges presenting our own dish! What do you think? Looking forward to ElectroluxPH Wok-a-holic Couple's Edition next year!
