Nanyang Review: Delicious and Filling Singaporean Food

A few days ago, I was invited to a gin-tasting session by the Singapore Tourism Board. During my evening at Run Rabbit Run, I looked back on my trips to Singapore, especially the food. I’m sure you’ve read or seen Crazy Rich Asians so you know how much the locals obsess over their cuisine. If you’re in Manila and you’re craving for some good Singaporean food, I recommend Nanyang.

12 Things I Learned From Pam Pastor, Inquirer Super’s Editor

One of the most established names in local lifestyle journalism is Pam Pastor, the editor of The Philippine Daily Inquirer‘s pop culture section Super. Our paths crossed for the first time last month during the presscon of Bianca del Rio’s Manila show and she was seated behind me. I had two choices: introduce myself and tell her I’m a fan of her work, or miss the opportunity to meet one of the people I look up to. I knew it was going to be worth it so I said hello and fangirled.

As fate would have it, I would meet her again after a few weeks for her writing masterclass with the So Worth It Squad, a group of hustlers whose stories of grit and determination remind us that the chase is So Worth It. Here are just some of the things I learned during her lecture:

Summer is here and I have had it. Officially. I’m not a big fan of the season so I’d find any excuse to stay in or go somewhere cool. Maybe I’ll catch a movie or eat out with friends, but my favorite is to pop into any Starbucks, order my favorite drink, and plop onto one of the couches and hang out with someone or read a good book. This year is going to be great because the new Starbucks summer drinks are out!

PAFP Eyes Every Filipino Household With One Family Doctor

After suffering from a bad back this past week, I decided to go to an orthopedic doctor to have it checked. It wasn’t as critical as I thought it would be, but he recommended I see a physical therapist for the next two weeks. Luckily, I didn’t have to look far for a physician. A simple Google search yielded the name of my doctor, I went the next day, and was in and out of his office in 10 minutes.

“Father’s Day” Review: A Smart Comedy About a Dysfunctional Family

Every family has its dysfunction but it’s only discussed during reunions and Christmas dinners, when grudges are brought up and plates thrown across the room. Rare is the occasion when a family would openly broadcast their neuroses, which explains the popularity of reality shows like Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

From March 22 to April 14, we get a peek into the lives of the Willows in Repertory Philippines’ Father’s Day, a West End play about a separated family that “enjoys” a reunion after a crisis. Henry receives an unexpected visit from his estranged son, Matthew, and his goth girlfriend, Christine. Still bitter from the divorce that tore his family apart, Henry treats them unkindly. After discovering that Matthew has run away, he decides to call his ex-wife, Sue. The result is a stellar cast exchanging witty banter filled with dry humor.
