My love for events and photography took me to something more than what I expect when I replied to an email sent from the BED (Branding, Environment and Design) Department of Task Us PH and passed the interview. Thus, led me to becoming a ‘Shutterbug‘. Shutterbugs are those people currently employed at Task Us PH (in any sites) whom are willing to work extracurricularly with the BED Team when there’s an event or activity that needs extra hand/s.
Unexpectedly, when we arrived in Pampanga the next thing happened was, I, learning that I’ll also be talking part of delivering a great news to Kapampangans and the whole Task Us community!
That House Teamwork has finally landed a better space for their growing family in GLCC, Clark – occupying 7th and 8th floor already!
Our background here was the Production floor that I’m talking about. *shot from Task Us video*
Co-hosting with me are Glenn from Chateau Ridiculous in Anonas, and Kyle from House Teamwork in Pampanga, who’ll be showing us what Pampanga was known for –FOOD!
So we decided to check out the first (ahuh!) food park that was built in Pampanga, Moderno Food Park. I think they stands to its name “Moderno”, where they bring something modern to the Kapampangan palates.
#Triviatime!! Did you know that it was a badminton court turned into a food park? Well, now you know! Hahahaha
“Mangan Tana!” as Kapampangan’s would shout.
What we have on our (literally) looong table were..
Coco Chops (P60) flavoured pops from Coco’s Chicken Shack (Korean Chicken)
Bianca Pizza (P350) from Fiammata was Kyle’s favorite. Very photogenic enough like something you will find in a classic fine dining resto but Moderno Food Park has it instead!
Hanami’s Beef Teriyaki (P120), a sweet and savory goodness!
From Simply Viet Kitchen and Asian Fusion they have Crispy Oriental Chicken Salad (P150), Banh Mi Chicken (P120) and the Kaffir Lime Juice (P60). Healthy, light and fresh. We had all agreed that this was very Task Us!
With all things potato-ey and cheesy, which Glenn liked, Yellow St. got you covered from Potato Swirl (P129) to Potato Cheese Bomb (P85), and Coco Water (P45).
Gohan Takoyaki and Sushi Bar, Volcano Sushi (P199) and Takoyaki (P120) quality-wise and taste-wise, thumbs UP! As many of you dont know, I super love takoyaki and this one doesn’t fail, although, I failed eating it when I took a bite (see Task Us PH video for the live blooper haha). #EPIC
I got caught off guard by Urban Crunch’s Kare-Kareng Bagnet (P140) and Dinakdakan (P140), an Ilocano version of sisig. If you’re looking a good putok-batok treat which is what Kyle made me try (photo screeshot from video).
Fat Mama’s Buffalo Wings (P160/half dozen| P300/whole dozen) with oozing hotness this buffalo wings has brought Kyle shocked.
The Daily Detox Juices (P55) – In one with Task Us to raise encouragement for a healthy lifestyle! Hands up to health enthusiasts! With their healthy drinks your diet won’t hate you for filling up your tummy with all those yummy calories. And since healthy is the new in, they are giving refills for just P15 so really go healthy! Try Daily Detox for daily dose of something your body will thank you for! As Kyle imbibe Angelica Pangabniban in *insert movie title* ” Coome back to the youuung and beyutifoool you!”
Which made me laugh hard enough to grab a daily detox drink. #commercial
Seafood Platter (149/solo; 299/for 2; P549/for 3-4; P849/for 5-6) my no. 1 favorite!!!! When this was served, I instantly got back on my Seefood diet! The flavor of garlic and butter sauce is just sooo goood I want to just lick my hands afterwards. Shrimps, Mussels, and Crabs complimented with corn and garlic butter sauce was hand up perfect! Such a great value for money to take your family and friends!
3 Reasons why Moderno Food Park was Recommendable:
2. The quality of the food was commendable for the value of the dishes.
3. The place was nicely ventilated and accessible for commuters. There were also air-conditioned function rooms that you could rent if you are in big groups or have some private event.
With all this, as a Task Us Lizzy’s Nook represent, all the way from Cavite, it was my honor as well as a great oppurtunity to have this experience, meeting other BED people from different sites and working alongside them.

Challenging as it is for me that I will also co-host this event, eventhough I’m not so much of a front-of-the-cam person but rather a behind-the-scene one. However, it turned out to be fun when you get to work with great people who give suggestions or advices when you are having a hard time rehearsing your line and stuttering when the camera rolls. It surprisingly went really well, mainly because of the rapport with my new-found fellow Task Us friends.
Thank you so much TASK US PH and MODERNO FOOD PARK! Till next food trip 😉
