    Indulgence by Irene's new cheesecake baby...I've featured every cheesecake flavor made by Irene, a very talented home baker who's quickly making a name for herself in Manila's dessert scene. Indeed, Indulgence by Irene has come a long way from baking these goods for friends and for personal consumption, to making them available for ordering and in bazaars so that more people can get a taste of why it is hailed as one of Manila's best cheesecakes.Among her four available variants---Queso de Bola, Chocnut, Tablea, and Ube---I was enamored with the QDB and Ube, both rich, utterly creamy, and…

There was no explicit discussion of the ban or any Facebook effort to enter the China market during Wednesday's question-and-answer session at the prestigious Tsinghua University. But Facebook CEO Zuckerberg noted during his talk that the social media giant already helps some Chinese companies in foreign markets. He cited computer maker Lenovo's ads on Facebook in India.

  • Both United States and Philippine Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman accused of murder. What took place that fateful evening of October 11th—when Jeffrey Laude, 26, a transgender who went by the name "Jennifer," and his companion United States Marine Private 1st Class Joseph Scott Pemberton, 19, checked into the Celzone Lodge in Olongapo City—are still under investigation.

    On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac,…

    17 Oct 2014 | 2:16 pm
    THERE MIGHT very well be a conspiracy afoot to prevent the election of Vice-President Jejomar Binay to the Presidency in 2016. It doesn’t release Binay from the responsibility of credibly answering the accusations that have been hurled against him. But neither should it prevent the media from using the opportunity to provide the public the information and analysis it needs to encourage citizen action against corruption. The 2016 elections may be all of nineteen months away, but no one will seriously challenge the probability that what’s happening to Binay is a pre-emptive strike intended…

Binay still topped the list of preferred presidential candidates in a September 8 Pulse Asia survey despite a sharp decline, from a previous (June 2014) 41 percent, to 31 percent, which, given a margin of error of three points, could either be a high preference number of 34 percent, or a low of 28.

Apparently firing Purisima and reforming the police are out of the question as far as Mr. Aquino is…

But some Filipinos still argue that things were better during the dictatorship, while others recall the way the regime ruined countless lives and inflicted on Philippine society its dark legacies of human rights violations, abuse of power, corruption and bad governance.

    Today is the 70th anniversary of the fulfillment of General Douglas MacArthur’s pledge of “I shall return” after being forced out of the Philippines by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. On October 20, 1944, MacArthur, together with Philippine Commonwealth President Sergio Osmeña, landed at Palo, Leyte on a site designated by the Americans as “Red Beach”.

This Spanish-era lighthouse, built in 1888 and first used in 1892, sits atop a hill on the northernmost point of Palaui Island in Santa Ana, Cagayan. A ground-level view of the lighthouse building complex from the south.

    Touted as the longest bridge in Mindanao with a length of 907 meters, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is one of the top tourist attractions in Butuan City with its raw and elegant design. Similar to the previously-featured Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge in Cebu, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge except that it has a single tower instead of Fernan Bridge’s pair. I’m also guessing that Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is also the tallest bridge in Mindanao, if not the whole country.

Built by the Augustinian Recollects in 1796, the watchtower served as a lookout against marauding pirates and Moros from Mindanao and was dedicated to St. Vincent Ferrer.

The fact that so few organizations actually catch suspicious or criminal activity on their networks highlights a common problem today: Most companies treat anything within the network as…

    Indulgence by Irene's new cheesecake baby...I've featured every cheesecake flavor made by Irene, a very talented home baker who's quickly making a name for herself in Manila's dessert scene. Indeed, Indulgence by Irene has come a long way from baking these goods for friends and for personal consumption, to making them available for ordering and in bazaars so that more people can get a taste of why it is hailed as one of Manila's best cheesecakes.Among her four available variants---Queso de Bola, Chocnut, Tablea, and Ube---I was enamored with the QDB and Ube, both rich, utterly creamy, and…

    Eating through the archipelago, one month at a time, one bite at a time.The hard thing about being a country made up of thousands of islands is that you can't just go to far-off provinces or cities on a whim. You'd either have to travel by plane or by boat, thereby making it harder for you to travel as often as you'd want to. Among other things, it's the delicious cuisine from the different regions that you'd most likely miss out on.Enter Filipino food festivals such as what Midas Café is currently hosting.

    This article is a guest post from regular contributor Motzie Dapul. It’s no real surprise to find some of the worst examples of allegedly “human” behavior in the comments sections of Filipino news articles. It seems as though we’ve accepted the reality of bad-grammar internet criminals who are the ultimate examples of internet trolls, people who disregard humane and decent behavior and call it a joke. But as with all things, there will always be a division of opinions, arguments on the internet, dissent among the ranks of commenters everywhere. Keeping this in mind, I delved…

    This is a guest article from regular contributor M. Emmanuel Canlas. I’ve gotten my legs waxed before. So, I pretty much know how the waxing session will go. But, as it was my first time getting a Boyzilian wax (otherwise known as a “Male Brazilian” or a “Brozilian” wax), it was totally nerve-wracking. It felt like I was getting circumcised again. At the back of my head, I asked myself, “Why did I say yes to this again?” Oh yeah, a dare — great. The reception area of The Body Spa & Waxing Lounge. The ladies of The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge…

An absolute steal at Php250 a bag, these cookies from Charliekins (called chewies) are the best things ever. Each bag contains about 20 mini cookies (about an inch and a half in diameter) chock full of chocolate, with that chewy bite and texture Mrs. Fields was once famous for until they stopped caring.

    We always pass by this restaurant in White Plains whenever we go to our favorite spa, The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge (ahem), and never really gave it much thought until a week ago. Called Basil, it used to be one of those places which sold ornamental plants along White Plains, but which has since been converted into a beautiful Thai restaurant. We strongly recommend this place if you’re in the area and looking for good Thai food. The interiors are dark and lovely, with a small pond in the corner, candles, Thai-inspired decor, and a fairly intimidating wall of earth, roots and plants…

    We always have a great time when we drop by the Salcedo Saturday Market, and this weekend was no exception. A popular tourist hub in Salcedo Village, Makati, the Salcedo Saturday Market is a small community market that pops up every Saturday in Jaime Velasquez Park. It has been around for about ten years, and offers a variety of treats for visitors. Items can be expensive though, but they are usually worth the cost. It’s also a great place to look for possible suppliers for food gifts this Christmas. We first stopped by Sonsi, The House of Longganisa, which is easily one of our favorite…
