Please don’t get me wrong, I am not judging how the kids these days behave. This article will merely point out the things we do, in my opinion as a parent and as a teacher, that may hinder the way our children grow up the way we want them to. This will not try to compare one generation to the other in terms of which is better and will not indict “bad” parents and extol “good” ones. Having said that, let me just write down my thoughts and those…

Depending on the context of the situation, this is either proof of the Filipino’s capacity to forgive, forget, and move on, or it could also be evidence that Filipinos are culturally hopeless, as they will be doomed to keep on making the…

  • Sam Nam I am.

    6 Jun 2014 | 7:36 pm
    "I do not like them, Sam-I-Am. I do not like green eggs and ham." Thanks to Dr. Seuss’ famous book, all boys named Sam grew up being called “Sam I am” on a regular basis, but for me it was a little worse. Why? My full name is Sam Nam which also rhymes with “I am” and that extraordinary coincidence excited my childhood friends to end. “Sam Nam I am! I am Sam Nam!”, they would chant over and over. As an adult I am comfortable with the novelty of my rhyme-laden name and, when I couldn’t’ find a consistent handle for my social media accounts,…

  • Eskabo Daan: Defanging the Snake

    Eskabo Daan
    2 Jul 2014 | 12:29 am
    “Defanging the Snake” is an expression used to articulate the perception in Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). It means to neutralize the immediate threat coming towards you whether with a kick, punch, head-butt, knife or stick. Once the snake is defanged, the snake is deemed powerless and unable to defend itself. The Abanico and Gunting are staple techniques in Filipino Martial Arts that serves this purpose.

    Of sushi, teppanyaki, and... papaya?!?Not one to say no to a sushi and sashimi meal, I was pretty excited to try Yanagi at Midas Hotel. Though not as big as other nearby hotels, stepping into the lobby alone provides a moment of awe as your eyes internally debate on what to devour first. The old Hyatt Regency has been revamped into a modern elegant boutique casino hotel that is both classy and contemporary.To the left is the concierge with a backdrop matching that of the lounge's located across the room: towering shelves housing orange boxes and silver decor.

    Of burgers, steaks, and pancakes...Before I even had the chance to visit Malcolm's Deli, they've renovated the place. I have no idea what it looks like before, though gazing at it for the first time, I'm reminded of a gentlemen's club with its all dark wood and leather (made from skin of Wagyu cattle) interiors -- with a deli, that is.They have these upright chillers filled with various rare finds: house made buttermilk, jars of flavored cheese, Fog City Creamery ice cream, and Kitayama Wagyu beef.

    I just caught PETA’s Rak of Aegis over the weekend and immediately fell in love with the play. So much so, in fact, that I’m planning to catch it again sometime in August. If you haven’t seen it yet, you absolutely need to buy tickets now because this is a show you would not want to miss. An overview: the story happens in Barangay Venizia, which has been submerged in flood waters for two months. It centers on Aileen, a talented young singer who believes that her family’s best ticket out of poverty is for her to become a Youtube sensation. This eventually happens, brought about by a…

    Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery has beautiful interiors, which paired well with what I think is a brilliant concept: a trendy, upscale breakfast restaurant that serves freshly-made bread, single origin coffee, handcrafted cocktails, and delicious comfort food. I thought, “like Wildflour, except more hip”. Too bad then that the experience we had fell short of the expectations I had in my head. Let’s start with the good part. The restaurant is gorgeous, and does a lot of things right, design-wise. It’s industrial but elegant, upscale but casual, modern but warm. It’s the type of place that…
