He lay perfectly still until the 20 Islamic extremists left, and he appears to be the only survivor of those who had been selected for death.

  • Why Filipino-Americans Need to Vote Democratic on November 4

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Since 1620 when the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, people the world over have migrated to America in search of a better life. Filipinos are no exception. In the '70s and '80s Filipinos who were able to left for the U.S. to escape the tyranny of the Marcos regime; today they leave is to escape the poverty and the lack of opportunity in their homeland. Whatever the reason, Filipino migrants quickly shed their old habits and attitudes and embrace American culture. And for the most part, those who—as former President Bill Clinton put it—"work hard and play by the rules" are amply rewarded…

    Following up on HTC’s Ultrapixel technology, Starmobile has introduced their own version with an 8-megapixel Ultrapixel camera on the UP Snap. What the company is saying is that each pixel on the sensor is bigger so it can take on more light (they did not mention the size of the pixel but the aperture is indicated as f2.0).

  • Why Ford Fiesta’s 1.0L EcoBoost is not Your Average 1-Liter Engine

    Kevin Bruce Francisco

    We were recently loaned by Ford its 2014 Fiesta Sport+ 1.0L EcoBoost. The award-winning sub-compact is a 5-door hatchback that runs on a 3-cylinder engine (yup, just three cylinders). Don’t be fooled by the numbers, though, as it pumps out 125PS of power and 170Nm of torque. Read on and find out why this International Engine of the Year victor isn’t your ordinary 1-liter engine. On paper, the Fiesta’s 1.0-liter engine is around the same displacement as the Kia Picanto or the Suzuki Celerio (both at the Php500K mark). What gives the Fiesta an edge over these two is its EcoBoost…

  • I Washed My Jeans In The Ocean

    Kevin Yapjoco
    10 Nov 2014 | 7:00 pm
    Ever since I got into raw denim I’ve always wanted to try washing my jeans in the ocean. It was popularised by a French clothing brand and involves wading in seawater with the jeans on then rubbing the jeans with sand. They say the salt water acts as a kind of natural bleach giving denim a subtle fade while sand “beats up” the denim softening it and giving it more character. Raw denim enthusiasts discourage washing jeans in sea water because it can leave a bad smell. However, the smell can be removed by washing the jeans in fresh water and detergent. During a weekend…

If an average Savile Row suit costs £4800, then the production cost is 33% of the retail price you pay. Compare that to the average production cost in retail, which is 13% to 20%, and you can see the basic value of bespoke tailoring. (Numbers based on three different retail sources).

This is his advice on ordering cocktails at fancy restaurants: Don’t order from a list that looks seriously out of season; a bar that’s paying close attention won’t serve rhubarb bellinis in January. And don’t order from the list at all if what you really want is a Sazerac, a French 75 or another standard. Restaurants rarely list them, but ordering an off-the-menu classic is not like asking for a bowl of chili at Le Bernardin. You…

    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…

    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…
