Abaca Baking, Tavolata and Warfe’s clinic

MULTI-AWARDED radiologist Warfe Engracia has done it again! In his desire to accommodate residents of Cebu’s southern towns, to affordable medical services, our good doctor has opened another clinic, Rajah Tupas Medical Services, in the town of Pinamungahan, Cebu.

“It’s very accessible to all, being located on Vargas St., near a bus terminal,” Doc shares. “In fact, on opening day, I performed ultrasound on nine patients.”

Visibly playing supportive roles were family: wife Elaine, daughters Athens and Dr. Mariquit Pascual with hubby Elmer.

Congrats, Doc, on still another step to help our fellow Cebuanos!

Tavolata, la trattoria di abaca, has opened at Ayala Center Cebu!

Taking inspiration from the Italian trattoria, Tavolata prides itself in dishes that rellect classic and effortless cooking, where ingredients take centerstage. Its pasta is made by hand from 100 percent semolina flown from Italy.

Its pizza, which is the highlight of the place, is completely hand-tossed, and complemented with artisan meats and cheeses.

This tasting session was hosted by that charming and energetic duo, Kaye Luym-Sala and Cybill Gayatin-Gwynn, partners in A-List Events Management, who are going on a temporary “hibernation” as Cybill is now US-based and Kaye has to tend to two lively toddlers!

Godspeed, lovely ladies, and hurry back soon!

Belated birthday wishes to our colleague, the amiable Flor Ynclino, who treated us to a sumptuous lunch at Laguna Garden Cafe recently.

Flor seems ageless, so what’s the secret, ‘Day?
