DAVAO is truly home to a lot of budding fashion designers who definitely have what it takes to eventually make it big in the international fashion scene. The 22-year-old Wilson Limon is my latest added “friend” who comes from the exciting and glamorous yet very competitive world of fashion.

Dear Cindy,

Creating habits to a fitter and well life: Fitness

Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 08:40 p.m.

Pio Solon

WE'VE been talking about creating habits for a while, and I’ve probably been preaching on making things a lifestyle since I started writing this column. It oftentimes pains me to hear people trying to measure their health by their weight. Weight is oftentimes indicative, but it is not conclusive. While weight loss is pretty much determined with whatever happens in the kitchen, your overall health is significantly correlated to your actual fitness level.

MilestonesBy Ching Pangilinan and Jessy Roque

THE long wait is finally over when Sweet Details by Angie Hizon opened its door to the public on January 19, 2014.

But it is with a baker’s hat that she seems most relaxed and even lovelier.

The wind beneath my wings

Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 12:27 a.m.

EVER wonder how birds, soaring even higher, continue to glide without flapping their wings? Apparently, the trade winds have much to do with it. Birds often rely on these helpful drafts to keep them steady and afloat.

Much like these drafts, I felt the need to offer my take on how my own brand of trade winds have helped me stay centered, grateful and thankful for much of everything both in my professional and personal life.

A dentist becomes an artist

Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 12:26 a.m.

ADRIAN Torres' collection of 38 pencil-on-paper artworks is now on display at the Phinma Gallery of the Negros Museum. A study of these artworks will draw one into a world filled with colors -- the kind that will make one think of candy and marshmallows -- fluffy pastels that belie the theme of the artist.

"Suroy-suroy sa Kadadalman sang Panimuot (Wandering in my Subconscious)" warns you that Adrian's art is not a walk through the chocolate-strewn avenues of candyland but the descending into his artist's mind.

Thank you, Pope Francis!

Saturday, January 24, 2015 - 12:26 a.m.

FOR a few days, the whole nation paused. Paused in our discourteous ways, paused in petty and hard crimes (the crime rate was down, paused from habitual little and favorite sins to the more deadly ones just to be one.

United in communal purpose, the nation paused in patience, in prayer, in excited anticipation. Pope Francis' pastoral and state visit did that for us Filipinos. We were "Christified" and there is much to be grateful for.

Sugarcane stories Part 1: Silay

Friday, January 23, 2015 - 09:49 p.m.

IT'S been years since I stepped foot on Sugarlandia. What I recall was how small and quiet the place was. I was mistaken. Gravely. The fact was, I never strayed from the boundaries of Bacolod City, or the perimeter of the place I stayed in. That explains the little I saw and know of the region.

The recent visit was THE eye-opener. Thanks to the Department of Tourism team of Region 6, I got to explore the vast sugarcane land and some of the many attractions—museums, ancestral houses, old churches, organic farm, and of course, the food spots!

Filipino food goes gourmet

Friday, January 23, 2015 - 07:58 p.m.

WE Filipinos usually have our meals together, with the food placed on the table for everyone to share: the platter of rice, the bowl of soup, the meats, fish, noodles and other dishes. Visual presentation does not matter as much as the taste of the food, and the warmth and camaraderie of those partaking of it. Food presentation, a necessity in gourmet dining, is usually absent. But for Chef Martin Przewodnik, Filipino food can be raised to gourmet status, which he is proving in his restaurant, La’mas.
