Among the hefty servings of Continental, Mediterranean, and Oriental dishes Bigby’s Cafe and Restaurant serve, their Titanic Treat is a must, MUST try! It’s 40 scoops of ice cream and toppings all over the place. This baby is the god of all desserts. Yes, be afraid. This enormous dessert is for those who are adventurous and who call themselves ultimate food lovers.

Owner Henrik Yu told us that if you’ll order this with another person (meaning there’s just 2 of you) and you guys finish it in 5 minutes, this Php 999 monstrous treat will be free of charge! Anyone up for the challenge? ^^

Bigby’s started in Cagayan de Oro, and now, it has expanded to Metro Manila, in the newly opened Atrium in SM Megamall

ARTINSITE MAGAZINE LAUNCH

On Saturday, January 17, Manila’s arts aficionados and patrons will be welcomed to a special reception at the Ayala Museum to announce the publication of the inaugural issue of Art in Site Magazine. The quarterly publication will be produced in Manila and distributed in the Philippines and the U.S. It is envisioned to be a leading resource for, by and about Filipino artists filled with insightful and engaging articles relating to the arts in all its forms to incite a renaissance of sorts—a rekindled interest in local art, artists, and a renewed sense of pride to be Filipino.

Art in Site Magazine is not just another arts magazine. Its history and unique vision are as remarkable as the people behind its creation. Patricia Laurel, editor of the magazine has the qualifications and pedigree: great-grand niece of national hero Jose Rizal; educated in Germany and the United States; writing credentials with European Stars and Stripes and Associated Press in the United States. Under Laurel’s leadership, Art in Site Magazine was conceived under the banner of a Cooperative for Artists in the Philippines and the U.S. as a way to connect a growing international community of artists of Filipino descent.

In every issue of Art in Site Magazine, a special article will be devoted to an update on the Cooperative’s ultimate goal — the establishment of the Manila Center for the Arts. The Center will be a physical structure that can be the hub for artistic development, exhibition and study; a nurturing home for Filipino artists, arts educators, and students to convene. Patterned after the highly successful San Francisco Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the plans include a Center School for young artists, state-of-the-art performance and exhibition spaces for small audiences, the provision of legal and practical services for the artistic community, and advocacy programs to increase government and private support of the arts in all of its forms.

A few weeks back, I brought my whole family to Havaianas’ Playback event. They literally turned part of the Bonifacio High Street grass-grounds into a whole big playground both for kids and adults with retro Pinoy games such as Piko, Patintero, Tumbang-Preso, Sipa, and a lot more.

 

 

 

“Before CDs, cellphones, digital media players and the internet were invented (edit: PS3, Wii, and other gaming consoles), you were the undisputed master of Tumbang Preso, Piko and Patintero” Havaianas let everyone experience “the nostalgia of your old-school glory,” and this time, with your kids.

 

 

 

 

It’s so funny seeing my mom and dad be like a kid again and played through almost every game there was. :)

 

 

 

 

There were even foreigners trying out these classic Pinoy games. Fun!!

 

 

 

What I enjoyed the most was playing Sungka with Tiffy. I really wanted to bring home the sungka board after — sadly we cannot. Oh, and I am a little better at this than Tiffy. Rematch? ;)

 

 

 

 

They ended (or at least, partially) with drummer boys and intruments making tribal sounds. That was awesome! I do hope Havaianas will have a repeat of this great event. To Pinoy games and sheer fun and excitement.

A month ago or so, I, together with some bloggers, were treated to Paul Calvin’s breakfast buffet. I wonder if they already have a price for their buffet already. But in any case, I would really recommend to you this place. After eating, I was told that their chef was previously from Shangri-La — and that’s why (I thought) the food was uber yummy!

What I liked the least from the food offered were the bread (I don’t know about the croissant with fruits, because I wasn’t able to taste that). I courteously told them that so that they can improve on that aspect. Everything else was fantastic! Breakfast was fit for a king. What won a lot of us was the fact that they have hot Taho there. Here are some more pictures of the yummy treat.

I sure can’t wait to head back there again and try out their other food selection, and of course, the breakfast buffet!
