Amado Fores, son of Asia’s Best Female Chef 2016
Amado Araneta Fores is son of restaurateur Margarita Fores. According to one website:
The chef behind Cibo, Lusso, Grace Park and countless other culinary ventures in the Philippines – has just been voted Asia’s Best Female Chef 2016.
Amado is by himself a celebrity. Town and Country Philippines considered him to be one of the country’s most eligible bachelors in 2016!!!
Like most men his age, Amado’s Twitter musings and Instagram posts are populated by food (and an occasional proclamation of his admiration of celebrity gourmet Nigella Lawson). Except that in his case, it’s a sincere appreciation of gastronomy, given that his mom is power restaurateur Margarita Forés.
He’s rich, good-looking, and loves food! The girls must love him!

Daniel Tuason, the next Lord of War?
Daniel Tuason, according to his Linkedin profile, is a process analyst for Arms Corporation of the Philippines (ARMSCOR) a firearms manufacturing company headquartered in the Philippines. This prominent firearms company traces its roots to a Manila printshop, Squires Bingham & Co. that was founded in 1905.
An Inquirer feature article titled “World-class guns made in PH” says that:
Our products are sold in 60 countries now, says Armscor chair Demetrio “Bolo” Tuason, detailing the company’s long list of rifles, pistols based on the popular 1911 format (known colloquially as the “45”) and a wide range of ammunition.
The company is looking to grow its firearms export business further. In the past, its sales were split 50-50 between the domestic and international markets, but at present, exports already account for 60-70 percent of sales, Tuason says—something that will likely rise under his son’s stewardship.
These appear to be the people closest to Sandro Marcos in the Philippines and they also appear to be on their own road to stardom!
Who do you think will match Sandro Marcos in terms of online popularity? What’s healthy competition among the rich and famous.
Do you have what it takes to be part of Sandro’s crew?
