Run for FAME

Run for FAME.jpg

I have a lot of backlog lately on my blog posts so I'm sorry for the multiple posts in one day. I have a lot of stories to tell and I can't wait to post all of them.

Congratulations to the H@ppy Feet runners who finished the Run for FAME last Sunday at Mall of Asia! FAME stands for The Filipino Association for Mariners' Employment. It aims to unite all legitimate shipmanning companies for a more formidable presence in and source of the world's maritime labor force.

I try to keep running 10Ks to balance off all the food trips with my wife. Recently, we went on a food trip in Marikina and I can't wait to share with you our discoveries. We ran a total of 11.5K around Mall of Asia and my legs hurt a bit probably because of the additional weight gained from the food trip.

Screaming O of Cuptails & Dreams

screaming o, originally uploaded by Cuptails & Dreams.

Have you tried this cocktail-inspired cupcakes branded as Cuptails?

I particularly like Screaming O which is a chocolate cupcake with Kahlua topped with Bailey's buttercream frosting. I can eat this everyday for dessert and I like the alcohol kick from the Kahlua and distinctive taste of Bailey's from the icing. This is a heavenly dessert for people like me who loves Kahlua and Bailey's.

We also tried Cosmopolitan, Mojito, Margarita and I particularly like the fresh lemon squeeze after taking a bite of the cuptails. The cupcakes are a mild version of the cocktails so you don't have to worry about getting drunk nor tipsy from eating these.

The Greatest of All Time LT Presentation

Pension Plan Presentation-2.jpg
The LT team dancing to the tune of Fame.

Every year, P&G Philippines has this unique tradition of celebrating how successful our pension plan fund is. (I know it is kinda weird). This is the biggest celebration in our company which is held around September. It is bigger than Christmas because this is the only time we have a joint celebration with the plant, the shared service center, and the sales and marketing organization. One of our pride as P&Gers, is to retire in P&G and this night also serves as a venue for honoring the retirees.

Every pension plan celebration night, there is an inter-department competition on the best musical presentation given a particular theme. This year's theme was 80's Ballroom Dancing. For the first time in the Pension Plan celebration history, the leadership team of the company presented in the Pension Plan. Thanks to Direk Mel Soriano and team for creating a memorable fun presentation (that we won't forget and won't happen again :)

We really had fun with this presentation. I wanted to capture that joy and share it with you (even if this post is kinda personal). Here is a glimpse of the LT presentation.

Kanin Club, The Pride of Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Laguna

Kanin Club-16.jpg

If BF Paranaque's best kept secret was Conti's (before they expanded), Technopark's best kept secret in Sta. Rosa Laguna is Kanin Club. After two years, the restaurant has doubled in space size and this is the only place packed during lunch time. On a Sunday lunch, we had to wait for 30-45 minutes before getting our seats which is a good indication of how successful Kanin Club is.

Kanin Club @ the Pink Kitchen

Located at the center of Paseo Sta. Rosa, this is a good place to start or end your weekend trip to Tagaytay. They serve filipino dishes with a one of a kind twist that I've not seen in any restaurant. Their best seller is the Crispy Dinuguan and the Kanin's Club Turon. They serve different kinds of rice (Kanin in Tagalog word) and the best part is they serve healthy brown rice! You can also opt to order All-You-Kanin which is an eat-all-you-can white rice for only P40 per person.

Shame on me for ignoring this gem when I first heard of this a year ago. Don't forget to try out Kanin Club on your next trip to Tagaytay. (Just a tip: when going to Tagaytay don't exit via Sta. Rosa, use the exit right after Sta. Rosa which is Greenfield and this should take you to Paseo Sta. Rosa faster and without any traffic)

Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin-8.jpg

Is this the face of Jesus Christ?

I was hoping that the exhibit would have a profound effect on us. Unfortunately, it did not and I'll tell you why.

The exhibit proves that the cloth is authentic and a documentation of a man who was scourged, speared, crowned with thorns, and crucified during the time of Jesus Christ, as depicted in the bible. But there is no conclusive evidence that suggest how the full front and back image could occur on the Shroud without any distortion and by only residing in the outermost surface of the weave. This is the core of the mystery, how could this even be possible to have a silent account of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as depicted in the Shroud of the Turin. It was amazing to see how the cloth survived through centuries and how it nearly escape destruction with some burn marks to prove it.

So when reason ends, faith begins. The Risen Christ theory suggest that the image was formed by the radiation created during the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I believe that the shroud is a miracle art where it depicts the brutal crucifixion but also the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. How can a piece of cloth be this powerful?
