A very special Chateaux Margaux dinner at the Makati Shangri-la

Life's too short not to take advantage of this wonderful and very special dinner serving some of the best wines in the world. The 1996 Chateau Margaux received 99 out of 100 points from Robert Parker and it's considered one of the great classics. That alone is reportedly worth the price of the whole dinner.

Meanwhile, the 1999 Chateau Margaux received 94 points out of a 100 points from Robert Parker.

So, after thinking about it for some time, calories and all, we've just said "yes" to joining this formal dinner. Beginning the day after tomorrow until the 22nd of November, it looks like we're going on one very memorable and seemingly never-endingly eventful Travelife kind of food trip...
