Why kalamancello can be the country’s national cocktail drink

  In 2013, a newly opened place called Balete@Kamias in Quezon City held live gigs featuring the AMP Big Band and other groups. By day, it operated as a restaurant. Owner Tierry Garcia---a Filipino US resident who promoted jazz concerts---came home to the Philippines and went into the food business.   Balete@Kamias became the "home" of AMP, playing as its house band every first Monday of each month these past five years---even as its popularity has spread far and wide.   Revisiting the place last month, during an AMP show, I saw some friends including lawyer Junji Quimbo and wife Vickee, cosmetic surgeon and Tierry's cousin Tito Garcia, Slapshock bassist...Keep on reading: Why kalamancello can be the country’s national cocktail drink.....»»

Must-dine places in Iloilo

There are three places in the Visayas that I get excited to visit---Bacolod, Cebu and Iloilo.   First time I went to Iloilo was on an invitation from Nestl Philippines. We did cooking demos around the island. Of course, after the event, we were brought to various dining places.   We went to this very popular restaurant beside the beach. I was not so impressed with the food then, so when we did our show, I suggested we skip the place. What a mistake.   Just a few weeks ago, I was again invited by chef Rafael "Tibong" Jardeleza to judge in a local competition called "Flavors of Western Visayas: The Hidden Treasures."   I learned about the many in...Keep on reading: Must-dine places in Iloilo.....»»

  It's always been customary for Filipinos to treat their visitors to their local food and there is nothing more quintessential than a bowl, or two, of halo-halo.

There s food Martinez will not eat for a while after nose bleed in the Olympics

Turns out there was a specific reason for Michael Martinez's episode of nose bleeding in his stint at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. After his routine in PyeongChang, Martinez suffered from severe nose bleeding. It wasn't because he got injured from his routine, it was just the after effects of all the stress and weight cuts he had to do prior to the competition. "I actually had a very bad nose bleed, I went to the doctors and they told me 'you know what it's because of the switch of the diet and the stress that you put it,'" Martinez said. "It was very difficult," the two-time Olympian added. Martinez was a late addition to the Winter Olympics being given a wildcard berth after Sweden's representative withdrew in January. The 21-year-old figure skater also ventured into bodybuilding following his first Olympic stint in Sochi four years ago and while that helped him with his career in some ways, it also forced him to cut his weight in order to reach optimum condition for South Korea. During the most stressful time of his weight cut, Martinez said he didn't really eat breakfast and only had what was basically a combination of salmon, some meats, and some vegetables for lunch and dinner. Oh and a little bit of bread too. Obviously, that took its toll on his body. "Everyday. At the end of the competition I was just like 'yeah I can't eat this,'" he said. But still, bodybuilding helped Martinez with his performances. All that muscle he packed was beneficial in him being stronger for his projections. However, the focus now for the Fil-Japanese skater is to take a break first. Returning to the country this week, representing a tropical country like the Philippines in the Winter Olympics is enough for Martinez. "Competing at that level of the Winter Olympics, in the company of world-class figure skating talents, and performing in front of the world, is already a reward," he said. "I am honored to have represented the country in that tournament and hope I have become an inspiration to the next generation of ice athletes," Martinez added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
