Read More: STUDIO KITCHEN of Chef Mark Tan! http://www.ourawesomeplanet.com/awesome/2012/09/studio-kitchen-chef-mark-tan.html

STUDIO KITCHEN is hailed by foodies as one of the best-kept secret restos located in Alabang. I was surprised that there's a restaurant this good in the south area. It would have been more appropriately located in Makati or Bonifacio Global City.

Most people don't know it probably because the name STUDIO KITCHEN gets lost in translation. The restaurant is the "Art Studio" of Chef Mark Tan, with the plates as his canvas and the dish as his artwork. In Manila, when you say "studio kitchen", it can connote a place where they sell kitchenware.

Also, the resto is hidden on the second floor of the Commerce Building where fast food joints like Army Navy and Yellow Cab are located on the ground floor. You wouldn't think that a gourmet, fine dining place would exist here.

But once you discover it, you'll rave about its Modern American Cuisine and share this foodie secret with everyone you know.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (Manila) is There, Inside Your Mind...

I still can't believe that PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, touted to be "the most successful musical of all time", is being staged in Manila. I was addicted to its complete soundtrack during my college days, and I never imagined I would get to hear and watch it live with the traveling Phantom of the Opera cast. :)

It's almost impossible not to be drawn into the love triangle story of Christine, Raoul and the Phantom because of familiar songs like:

  • "Think of Me" by Christine and Raoul, 
  • "The Mirror (Angel of Music)" by Christine, Raoul, and Phantom
  • "The Phantom of the Opera" by Phantom and Christine
  • "The Music of the Night" by Phantom, and 
  • "All I Ask of You" by Raoul and Christine

I loved the smooth transitions from one grand scene to the next, especially when Christine was seduced by the Phantom to visit his secret hideout under the opera house, passing through an underground lake. It was mesmerizing to see the smoke, lights and candles slowly emerging to create the Phantom's hiding place.
