One of the highlights about the said event is the cook-off challenge led by Heussaff, Urbano and Bogart which was divided into three groups. Selected students from CCA Manila, members of media and bloggers joined in. I was among the kitchen runners for Team Erwan.

During the cooking showdown, we used several Google Apps such as Google Keep, Google Drive, Gmail, Voice Search, Google Translate, Google Chrome, and YouTube.

I was delighted to be part of Erwan's team. I learned on how to use Google Keep and enjoyed doing kitchen stuff.

Our team won the overall winner for the cook-off. Our prize: we got a mobile phone from Google. Meanwhile, Team Bogart, and Team Maputing Cooking received the best flavor and best presentation award respectively.
