                  Marinel Paguia of TGIFridays Glorietta  was named champion at the recent TGIFridays  Asia-Pacific Bartender Championship  held in Indonesia.  She bested bartenders from the Asian region with her  extraordinary skills in flairtending as well as her technical knowledge of the TGIFridays’ bar elements .  1st  runner-up  and 2nd runner-up honors went to Taiwan's Allen Chung and Guam's Henry Aguilar.

                Paguia will  compete at the World Bartending Competition to be held in Dallas, Texas next year.  She hopes to duplicate the feat of fellow female bartenders Rizza Umlas and Jholan Penafiel who were proclaimed World Bartending Champions in 2015 and 2017, respectively, in historic competitions held in Dallas Texas, USA.

“I have waited for a winning moment like this for a long time and there is no turning back from here. I will give it my all. I am ready to bring home that much-sought-after title!” Paguia said.
