For this luckless young woman, it will be the culmination of a life that from the beginning, had been dealt a losing hand. First and foremost, she was born a Filipino. In a country where according to an Asian Development Bank (ADB) study, 18 million live on 50 pesos or less a day, her chances of being born into poverty were a lot greater than if she was born in Europe or North America—or even in other countries in Southeast Asia ...

    Webmaster
    19 Feb 2015 | 9:11 pm
    ONLY by coincidence are reports of a brewing coup plot circulating on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the EDSA 1 People Power uprising. The usual suspects behind coup attempts may find it convenient to link their conspiracy to the overthrow of the Marcos regime in 1986, but they would be unduly stretching the meaning of their clandestine enterprise if they did so. A coup is the exact opposite of what happened in 1986. A coup d’etat (literally, a sudden move against the state) is a clandestine, elite undertaking usually instigated or supported by military adventurists acting in behalf of…

    LET’S GET THE usual “separation-of-church-and-state” argument out of the way first. Securing the Pope, whoever he may be, is a State responsibility and no one in his right mind should be arguing against it. No one should begrudge the Catholic faithful among the citizenry the opportunity to at least see the Pope in person either. If providing that opportunity requires declaring January 15, 16 and 19 holidays, then by all means should those dates be holidays. The point is that neither assuring the Pope’s safety nor providing Filipinos the chance to see him impinges on the Constitutional…

    CAFE BY THE RUINS DUA is the first branch of the popular Cafe by the Ruins in Baguio after 25 years as a standalone establishment. Its new location beside Mario's Baguio on Upper Session Road will serve as the main bakery and commissary for baked goods and pre-cooked frozen pasalubong. It's a relief that you can now enjoy Cafe by the Ruins without braving the traffic of Session Road and Burnham Park. The "ruins" charm is lost in the new branch, but the modern-hip interiors are in tune with its double purpose as a gallery for Cordillera arts and…

    Admin
    22 May 2015 | 6:55 am
    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…

The obtaining facts tell us that the adjudicatory phase of the criminal cases against Arroyo including electoral sabotage, plunder and other high crimes of graft and corruptions had been well approaching when she…

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…

    So it is now the time to bite the bullet until and unless some kind of anesthetic is found for the string of higher scots for our expressways and public transport modes. 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…

    Every year, nearly 200,000 women die from a rampant disease that is misunderstood in the female gender: addiction. Even though the U.S. National Drug Survey found that men are much more prone to addiction and substance abuse — nearly 12 percent of the American male population has experienced a dependence problem — plenty of other research has indicated that female addicts face significantly more challenges before, during, and after addiction than their male counterparts. It is much more difficult to be a woman experiencing addiction — but most medical facilities and media portrayals…

    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 agriculture means feeding the world without damaging the environment or threatening human health. It's a way of growing or raising food in an ecologically and ethically responsible manner. 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…

    Dining on the top of the world...Gramercy Residences is 71 storeys high, and houses a restaurant and lounge at that coveted penthouse spot: 71 Gramercy.When I reached the top floor of the highest building in the country, the sky was still bright. I was led directly to the outdoor patio where I was greeted by Chef Cecille Chang of Silk Road fame. She's the new General Manager of 71 Gramercy, and the one who invited us all (by all I mean the KTG and some respected blogger friends) for dinner to sample Chef Carlo Miguel's new dining menu.She then took me on a tour of the whole place while we…

    Of sushi and other Japanese comestibles...Aside from Filipino cuisine, I'd say Japanese food---more specifically, sushi and sashimi---is what I could happily consume every day without complaint. I had to mention those particular types of Japanese comestibles, because frankly, yakitori isn't something I find myself craving for. Even ramen and tonkatsu, while I do enjoy eating every once in a while, simply aren't up there on my favorite food list.Eating at sushi places always makes me giddy happy as I anticipate another gastronomic show of Instagram-worthy dishes and flavors that make me swoon…

    A flight of French wines amid a fine French dinner...I've always wanted to try Brasserie CiÇou, having heard of so many good things about Chef Cyrille Soenen's French masterpieces. And for that night's meal, not only did I get a taste of his legendary creations, I also had a chance to participate in a wine tasting workshop conducted by wine connoisseur Bernard Flour of Manila Wine. I've attended a few wine flights and wine appreciation events, and this is one of the more informative ones.Manila Wine is an online wine store that carries mostly French wines, but also offers wines from other…

  • How to use olive oil for beautiful skin and hair

    pinaysaeuropa
    12 May 2015 | 1:32 pm
    We all know that olive oil is one of the healthiest oils that we can take into our body. A high quality extra virgin olive oil is high in anti-oxidants like polyphenols, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, chlorophyl and carotenoids. These aid our body in fighting free – radicals that damage our skin cells, thus speeding up the skin aging. Olive oil cannot only be taken with our food, it can also be applied topically to benefit our skin and hair. This oil is thick and may take a little bit time to be absorbed by the skin. Here are some ways to use olive oil for a more beautiful skin and hair. 1. Use…

    1.) You have a lot of socially – active friends. Friends are good and surrounding ourselves with good ones give a sense of happiness and feelings of belongingness and security. However, if it means always ‘meeting up’ in some restaurants, watching the latest movies, or going ‘a bit’ shopping, then these activities will surely tire your resources. It is easy to fall into mindless spending but if it results in living from paycheck to paycheck, then it might be better to take a pause and analyze if it is worth being friends with these people. 2.)

    1.) Have a bottle of water that you can carry around. This will starve off thirst and hunger and seeing a bottle of water that is available will make you reach for it conveniently. You can do this at home or when you are working outside your home. 2.) Put fruits where you can see them. It might mean on your kitchen table, somewhere in your living room, or in your bedroom if you would be spending more time in the day there. If your see them and you feel some sort of hunger, it would be easier to eat them rather than reach out for chocolates or some chips. 3.) Give in to what you crave and…

    When I was still in the Philippines, my friend and I bought a massage coupon from an online deal called Metrodeal. It was a massage/beauty center somewhere in Makati and from my recollection, it was easy and legitimate, the only hassle was that we had to print the coupon but that was because we both did not have a printer at home. It was a time when online deals in the Philippines were new and not a lot of people trusted online transactions like this. However, about 3 years had already passed so I thought service would have improved more. So I visited the site again hoping to find some good…

    Coffee. It invokes nostalgic memories of endless conversations between close friends, between lovers, and between family members. It always makes me feel good, almost envious actually, whenever I see lovers locked in intimate conversation over cups of coffee. I am not a coffee drinker however, far from it. I do not like coffee. This dislike stems not from the coffee itself but my stomach somehow churns up whenever I put coffee into it. The last time, with a very long time in between that I drank coffee, was on a meeting break. I drank it because I missed its taste and everybody around the…
