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…

    Embracing our Roots, Learning from the Past is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger By Richard Leo Ramos as originally posted at the Philippine Online Chronicles It is at once one of the greatest strengths and one of the most striking weaknesses of the Filipino psyche: Somehow, Filipinos seem to have a very short memory when it comes to unpleasant events. 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…

  • Eskabo Daan: Defanging the Snake

    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. Choose your preferred cut, and you can have them cook and serve it to you for the retail price…

  • The SONA Red Carpet Fashion Show and Media Circus Needs To Stop

    Von Bryan Cuerpo
    29 Jul 2014 | 10:09 pm
    We can’t possibly be the only people who think the red carpet fashion show lawmakers put up each year during the President’s State of the Nation Address, and the accompanying media frenzy, is not appropriate and healthy for a young and relatively poor democracy. Seriously, this insanity needs to stop. Here are several reasons why. 1. It demeans and dishonors the institutions these legislators represent. Legislators, once they accept the responsibility of holding office as a representative or senator, are no longer just persons or individuals, they have become symbols of the…

  • Restaurant Round-Up: A Controversial Burger Joint And A Popular Ramen House

    24 Jul 2014 | 9:05 pm
    For this review, we’re covering a controversial burger joint and a popular ramen house. 1. Cali Burger In certain foodie circles, it’s become de rigeur to bash Cali Burger, which is mostly because of a really bad marketing misstep. It’s not a secret, and in fact Cali Burger proudly admits, that it is “heavily-inspired” by the popular In-N-Out burger chain in the United States. In fact, if you look at the old food containers of Cali Burger, you’d notice that they even used to use In-N-Out‘s tagline “Quality You Can Taste”. This was a…

    After what can only be described as a frustrating, but expected, experience with the recent announcement of the movie line-up for the 2014 Metro Manila Film Festival, it’s such a joy to watch the trailers for the featured movies in the 2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival.  In this article, I’m giving you six movies I’m particularly excited to watch. 1. 1st ko si 3rd This movie turns the usual romantic comedy on its head by starring the affable, if getting on in years, comedic love team of Nova Villa and Freddie Webb. 1st ko si 3rd has the potential to be laugh-out-loud funny and…

    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…
