My 4 hours with Anthony Bourdain around ‘gritty’ Manila—with ‘No Reservations’

  It has been 10 years now, yet during our culinary walks around Binondo, we still get the occasional question, "How was he?" "He" was chef, writer and newsmaker Anthony Bourdain, who took his life last June 8. It was a decade ago when I had the rarest and most fortuitous privilege of giving Bourdain his first taste of the Manila culinary scene. To the multitude of fans, some of whom had to drive from Manila to Pampanga where a segment was shot, catching a glimpse of the man was enough. I had more than a glimpse. I had a whole day of eating out with him, and the irony of it was that I wasn't even a big fan. I had not read any of his books. While his popular TV ...Keep on reading: My 4 hours with Anthony Bourdain around ‘gritty’ Manila—with ‘No Reservations’.....»»

‘‘Sisig’ is everything I love about food’—dining with Anthony Bourdain in Manila

  Sisig is everything I love about food," Anthony Bourdain told me before digging into his dalandan sorbet. The icy palate cleanser eclipsed the previous courses he politely refused to touch: a salmon caviar timbale with shrimp-pomelo salsa, followed by a decorative plate of pan-roasted duck breast. "Sizzling pork with all that good fatty, rubbery, crispy texture? Sisig is just wonderful. And it goes well with beer!" It was Oct. 25, 2008. We were at a private dinner in Pasay City, where I was fortunate enough to land a place at the table. While most of my dinner companions, a mix of foodie nerds and fan boys bordering on the obnoxious, were engrossed in the conver...Keep on reading: ‘‘Sisig’ is everything I love about food’—dining with Anthony Bourdain in Manila.....»»

ASIAN GAMES: Philippine medalists given additional financial incentives

Medalists from the recently-concluded Asian Games just got richer after getting additional financial incentives for their hard work and success. The incentives, which were a sum of the funds given by the MVP Group, San Miguel Corporation and the PBA, were given to the athletes in a special ceremony before the Ginebra-San Miguel tussle at the Big Dome Sunday evening. Bronze medalists were awarded PHP 300,000 while silver medalists got PHP 500,000 and gold medalists were bestowed a prize of PHP 2,000,000 each.  The latter prize was is in addition of the previous incentives awarded by the Philippine government and the private sector of PHP 7,000,000 for the gold medalists. Some medalists were on-hand in the awarding ceremony, including Pauline Lopez (bronze, taekwondo); Agatha Wong (bronze, taijijian, taijiquan); Rogen Ladon (silver, boxing), Hidilyn Diaz (gold, weightlifting), Yuka Saso (gold, golf).  The winning National Sports Associations were also given a cash prize in a ceremony earlier this day. Finishing the quadriennial meet with a 4 gold- 2 silver-15 bronze medal count, the Philippines finished 19 out of 46 participating nations, coming up short of a top-15 finish that the national sports governing bodies had set for themselves, but a noticeable improvement from the 1-3-11 medal haul in the Incheon Games in 2014.  Philippine Olympics Committee (POC) President Ricky Vargas was nonetheless proud of the national athletes, whose countless hours of hard work and dedication had brought pride to the country. "That was difficult. We got 4 golds, which was something that we were very happy with. Also we just hit 19. Yung goal natin maging 15 eh darating rin tayo doon. Or even better," Vargas said after the ceremonies.  The ABAP President also added that additional private sponsors had pledged their support for the athletes in the upcoming South East Asian Games to be held in Clark and Manila late 2019. "They are coming in, and I am very happy that they are coming in. And they have confirmed their support just today. I spoke to some of them who were there in the Owner's Lounge there. So importante yun. Importante rin ang POC, di ba?" "So nag-meeting rin kami with [PSC Chairman William 'Butch] Ramirez and complete support for the South East Asian Games. They're coming to our place. To our home. We will perform well in our home."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.   .....»»

More upsets in MPBL as Laguna takes shine off Manila

It was another night of upsets and a couple of record-setting feats last Wednesday at in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Anta-Datu Cup. Two players were able to shatter feats in rebounding even as Laguna became the latest giant slayer in the while Davao Occidental continued its winning ways. Michael Mabulac shattered a seven-month record held by Gian Abrigo for most rebounds by any player in an MPBL game while also helping steer the Laguna Heroes to a 74-68 triumph over powerhouse Manila Stars. It was the third straight win by the Heroes who improved their win-loss record to 5-3 to move up to third spot in the Southern Division. This is also the third straight game a lower-ranked squads were able to shock their fancied rivals and commissioner Kenneth Duremdes said the games are becoming more exciting because of the unpredictability of the results. “You can’t count out all teams yet. Wala pa tayo sa halfway stretch ng tournament. Yung iba, nag-peak early, while yung iba naman, lately lang nagpi-peak,” wrote Duremdes in an online message. “That’s the beauty of our single round robin.” Mabulac grabbed 21 rebounds to break the 20 set by Abrigo seven months ago while playing for the Quezon City Capitals. The former reserve player of San Miguel Beer in the PBA also ended up with 15 points to complete a double-double performance. But Mabulac’s feat lasted for only two hours as his newly-recorded feat was broken right away by fellow ex-pro Mark Yee, who powered the Davao Occidental Tigers to a 68-61 triumph over Pasay.   Yee came away with his own double-double performance, scoring 16 points and pulling down 24 rebounds to set a new mark for most rebounds by any player in a game. His heroics catapulted the Tigers to their third straight win and moved them up to second place of the Southern Division with a 6-3 card......»»
