Palestinian officials blamed Israel for the shelling, which wounded dozens and came on the deadliest day so far of the current round of fighting. However, the Israeli military said the school "was not a target in any way" and raised the possibility the compound was hit by Hamas rockets.

    Mobile work during the power outage due to Typhoon Glenda is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger Typhoon Glenda left more than 20 hours ago and as I type this , there is still no power where I live. Over the radio I heard that 19% of Metro Manila do not have electricity. I should count my blessings that there is not much property damage compared to the Milenyo wrath in 2006. I was ready for power interruption because in 2006, we did not have power for more than two days. I relied on coffee shops .

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…

    Are you ready to feast on some Japanese fare?Aside from other food blogs, when I'm curious about a restaurant, I usually check it out on Zomato. If you're still not familiar with Zomato, it's this website that has every information you need about restaurants. They have the usual type of cuisine, opening hours, location, and contact numbers, and they also have a visual copy of the menu, reviews, and photos of the food and establishment.Another cool feature of Zomato is their Collections, which gives you a list of popular restaurants across a specific theme. So if you're say, looking for a…

    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. A grand piano dressed in ebony…

  • Pancakes and Kitayama Wagyu at Malcolm's Deli

    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…

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

    Von Bryan Cuerpo
    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…
  • Six Exciting Movies To Watch In The 2014 Cinemalaya Film Festival

    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…
  • Why You Absolutely Need To Watch PETA’s Rak Of Aegis

    Von Bryan Cuerpo
    20 Jul 2014 | 9:20 am
    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…
  • Trendy Breakfast Place in Rockwell Disappoints

    13 Jul 2014 | 6:46 am
    Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery has beautiful interiors, which paired well with what I think is a brilliant concept: a trendy, upscale breakfast restaurant that serves freshly-made bread, single origin coffee, handcrafted cocktails, and delicious comfort food. I thought, “like Wildflour, except more hip”. Too bad then that the experience we had fell short of the expectations I had in my head. Let’s start with the good part. The restaurant is gorgeous, and does a lot of things right, design-wise. It’s industrial but elegant, upscale but casual, modern but warm. It’s the type of place that…
  • 11 of the Funniest Conversations From Law School

    10 Jul 2014 | 9:14 pm
    Just a collection of funny old stories and conversations from the Facebook Page Overheard in Ateneo Law School (which was obviously inspired by the website Overheard in New York). V: You know, if you really just wanted to be wealthy, you could just marry rich. C: Yuck, ano ba, I have morals. He has to be hot also. V: Hahaha. Wow, ganda ng morals mo ha. —— Professor A was talking about morality in an Admin Law Class in relation to COMELEC’s initial disqualification of LADLAD as a Party-list Group. Professor A: Mr. A, is the 2nd Division right in disqualifying Ang LADLAD since…
