A chic cafe and confort food

Friday, November 28, 2014 - 05:28 p.m.

FOOD is something we think about every day. We need it not only to assuage hunger, but more importantly, to keep on living. When we don’t have the time to cook for ourselves, we go out and eat in restaurants or fast food places, or buy something from a carenderia or elsewhere for food “to go.”

At present, there are so many places to eat and so many food choices, that deciding where and what to eat can be a problem. The best bet is to go for comfort food—food we are familiar with.

Sira-sira Store: Honor rice

Friday, November 28, 2014 - 05:25 p.m.

BOILED rice is the most important item on the table. Without rice, a meal is incomplete and the stomach doesn’t seem to feel full. Cebuanos have a phrase for that: “Nangita gyod og kan-on.”

Not surprisingly, the Department of Agriculture (DA) in Cebu City recently held a rice-cooking contest, obviously with rice as the basic ingredient prepared in various ways. This was to mark November as the Rice Awareness Month, belatedly I learned, from GMA-7’s morning show Buena Mano Balita.

Love for fashion, eye for design

"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world." -- Marilyn Monroe

CLOTHES are style. Clothes are personality. Clothes are comfort. The clothes we wear are a reflection of who we are, what we aspire for, what we dream about. They can say a lot about a person and is an art form in itself just from the way it looks and how it is worn.

Thursday, November 27, 2014 - 11:58 p.m.

EVERYBODY wants a place to dwell and settle down.

A place where most people consider as prized possession where they can reflect, relax, and unwind after a long tiring day of work. A place of confidence and tenderness where hearts confide, thus giving a transient view that despite of the cramped situation outside, there will be a place where valuable time with love ones is treasured. Primarily keeping your balance with peace and harmony truer than you expect. Hence, an ideal environment to feel good every time you get up in the morning.

The Beauty Enthusiast: Beauty looks at the AMAs

Thursday, November 27, 2014 - 05:49 p.m.

The American Music Awards took place earlier this week, and the red carpet event saw many celebrities dressed to the nines for the occasion. While looking through the photos, I was actually rather disappointed with how many of the celebs chose to do their makeup. A lot of them wore looks that I thought aged them (foundation too thick, eyelashes too fake) or just didn’t flatter their features. Here are three of my favorite looks from this year’s AMAs.

And sometimes, we get trapped into choosing between the person we love, but loves somebody else and the person who loves us but we cannot love in return.
