Because of this, tickets were sold out more than a week before the actual event. There were a total of 11 caterers, with 10 established contenders--Bizu, K by Cunanan, Juan Carlo, Albergus, Hizon's,…

    Time and time again this blog gets hacked and what I dislike most about the clean-up process is making a clean install of WordPress. You’ll probably think, “Why not update WordPress from the admin panel or the webhost cpanel?”. The downside to that is although WordPress will be updated, some, if not most, files will remain untouched. Since hackers target core WordPress files, it is best to start over with fresh files. This tutorial is, as I’ve said, quite painless but requires you to have access to your server via Command Line SSH (Secure Shell). Your webhost should…

    It is generally conceded that impeachment is more of a political than a legal process. However, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), supposedly the official organization of lawyers in the Philippines, has issued a statement raising an interesting legalistic claim regarding the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. The statement argues that while the impeachment process itself against Corona is legal, some of the grounds relied on, particularly those which question the opinions of the justices applying the Constitution in actual cases, constitute an assault on the judiciary…

    Impeachment is a political process mainly because party-mates will vote along party lines. This is the habiliment of democracy. Majority controls the business of the day, minority voice is heard for the record, but it does not carry the business for the day. We should not lose our equilibrium because some Senators have already prejudged Merci and therefore they should inhibit from sitting in the impeachment body. The process itself is political and therefore, it will be resolved in accordance with party agenda. Merci, from my recollection did not argue that politics is ruinous to public…

The Aquino administration surely knows these higher rates exact a political cost. It can, of course, be argued by P-Noy’s communications team that with 7 in 10 Filipinos support the long term goal of putting our lives in order, the adjustments simply cannot be put off. But while this point is conceded, the matter of cogently communicating the reason/s for the upticks cannot be neglected. Let’s cite another point – the…

    A recent report released by Green Park has exposed the failing diversity across the business sector, as the number of ethnic minorities and women gaining leadership has become a growing concern. Despite a campaign by former business secretary Vince Cable to encourage at least one non-white director by 2020, there is still a decline in the number of diverse managers being promoted for the boardroom. While women are maintaining a steady growth in the competition for leadership, the ethnic diversity of those within FTSE 100 companies is nose diving at a drastic level. Women now comprise 12.6% of…

    The cost of living has begun to decrease for the first time in 55 years, however the cost of raising a child continues to increase. Following the recession, many young adults have been left unable to afford to move out of their family home or support themselves, which has had a knock on effect on the amount it now costs to raise a child. On top of this, in 2012 English universities were granted permission by the UK Government to charge tuition fees of up to £9,000 per academic year. Added to the maintenance loans that most students require to live, has increased the strain upon British…

    Taste, crave, and live the flavor..."I'll bring you to Wingstop," my mom told me one afternoon, knowing that I love flavored wings -- I used to go on weekly wings nights with my cousins in Calgary, Canada where they would offer baskets of wings at a discounted price.

  • Indulgence by Irene: Coffee with Baileys Cheesecake

    17 May 2015 | 4:46 am
    Coffee with Baileys? YES, please!My mom and I are coffee people, and just to stir things up every now and then, we inject a little inebriant into our cup of joe. Our alcohol of choice: Baileys Irish Cream. It really goes well with coffee, and it somehow makes the usual more special. At times, when there's stock in S&R, we use the mint-flavored Baileys, but oftentimes, it's just the regular one. Either is fine.When I heard that Irene, the talent behind Indulgence by Irene and its popular Queso de Bola Cheesecake, was concocting new flavors---Earl Grey, Corn, Orange Bourbon, and Coffee with…

    Shangri-La Hotels support sustainable food movement...Sustainable food is food produced with high regard for quality in terms of freshness, nutritional value, and production practices.

Sustainable food movement thus helps out small local farmers and fishermen, at the same time, it enables people to eat fresher and healthier meat and produce. It's a win-win situation, and I think more…
