If there is one restaurant that never fails to excite me every single time, it most certainly has got to be Restaurant Tapenade at Discovery Primea in Makati City.
My visits there are always filled with great memories of delicious food with friends and family. All around great guy and boss of Primea’s kitchen, Chef Luis Chikiamco, really knows how to make get-togethers unforgettable through his culinary skill and creativity.
That’s why whenever Chef Luis has new dishes to showcase, I’m always there… well, every chance I get, that is.
My recent visit to Restaurant Tapenade was just as exciting as Chef Luis revealed a good number of dishes which happen to be their newest additions to their menu, focusing on the captivating flavors of the Meditarranean.
Here are just some of the wonderfully new offerings that caught my attention which you can expect during your next visit to one of the Metro’s most beloved restaurants.
I’ve always been fascinated with contact lenses. How one can freely move around with no hindrance or discomfort that comes with prolonged use of eyeglasses.
I’ve been using eyeglasses for a good number of years already and somehow, there are still moments when I find myself complaining or irritated by my spectacles. I guess everyone who has ever used one can relate.
But for the life of me, I could not get myself to wear contact lenses. The thought of seeing my finger slowly nearing my eyeball gets me all queasy. Hahaha! I don’t know why. It’s just one of the many fears that I have which includes needles among other things.
Thankfully, my daughter, Ella, is the total opposite.
It’s here! The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has finally (and officially) arrived in the Philippines!
Earlier today, Globe Telecom announced that it will offer the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — the best, most advanced iPhone ever! This year’s model features an all-new advanced camera system, dust and water resistant design, stereo speaker system and the A10 Fusion chip which is regarded as the most powerful chip on any smartphone while delivering the best battery life ever in an iPhone.
OMG! I’m sooooooo excited! If you are, too (who isn’t?), then read on to know more…
One of the most anticipated superhero films is finally upon us! Doctor Strange!
From the time Marvel made the official announcement that they would be making a Doctor Strange movie and that Benedict Cumberbatch would be cast as the Sorcerer Supreme, I eagerly waited for this day to come. During the long wait, month after month I made do with whatever behind-the-scene photos and teasers I would chance upon and find on the internet.
I had the awesome opportunity to attend the advanced screening of Doctor Strange just a couple of days ago at the IMAX Theatre at SM Mall of Asia. My joy and excitement couldn’t be contained as I counted down the days.
I’ve always been a comic geek. I grew up collecting comic books, reading them over and over again and escaping into my own fantasy. This is probably the reason why I’m part of the demographic that’s sincerely hoping for a close-to-faithful retelling of Doctor Strange’s origin story. Thankfully, Marvel did not disappoint.
Never underestimate the wonderful experience a perfect pairing of wine and food can make. The way each wine selection heightens the flavor of its partnered fare is just a joy to one’s senses.
I was recently treated to an unforgettable dining experience a couple of weeks ago when I attended a Dourthe Bordeaux wine pairing dinner at Atelier Vivanda in BGC.

I’ve got a family that adores Chinese cuisine. Whenever we plan on dining out and there is suddenly an opportunity to choose what kind of food to eat, almost always, my wife and kids would suggest to dine at a Chinese restaurant. You can imagine how happy my wife was when we visited one of […]
I have always admired Globe’s wonderful efforts in helping our less fortunate brothers and sisters. You may not be aware, but Globe is constantly giving back in a whole lot of ways. Building homes for Yolanda victims, helping raise schools in provinces, as well as creating opportunities for fellow Filipinos. With Globe Tattoo’s recent partnership […]
Just recently, I was able to attend the La Maison Cointreau Cocktail Competition held at the incredible “Le Jardin” restaurant right in the heart of BGC. It was the most anticipated event of that particular evening. And rightfully so. Just imagine, the best mixologists in the metro will “mix it up” (pun intended) with fellow […]
For those who weren’t able to watch my episode of “Weekend Getaway” last Saturday on GMA News TV, here is an excerpt of some of the fun my wife and I had in San Juan, Batangas. The video below shows me and Yen “kungo” hunting… Kungo, which is similar to a coconut crab, is very […]
My wife keeps telling me that I look silly almost every night falling asleep while tinkering with my smartphone. Either, tweeting, editing photos, or playing games in a comfortable position always leaves me feeling sleepy… and more often than not, I end up dozing off. During a taping of my teleserye (“Magdalena”) last week, some […]

What’s in a name? Well, if you’re an establishment that happens to be associated with the name, “Nobu”, then clearly a lot is riding on the reputation that precedes it. When Nobu Hotel Manila first opened its doors last year together with City of Dreams Manila’s official coming out party, it immediately became one of […]
