Chef Jeff Claudio's Pop-up Special Menu at Chef Jessie's Rockwell Club (A Photo Essay)

Instagram

Chef Jeff Claudio LG G4-6

When I first met Chef Jeff Claudio, he was the Sous Chef at Burnt Ends in Singapore, which had just been recognized as the #30 restaurant in Asia's 50 Best List. He is the cousin of Chef Jessie--who trained him when he was 18--and now at 32, is one of the fast-rising Filipino Chefs based in Vancouver, Canada. 

For the first time, he is doing a stopover in Manila to do a Special Menu at Chef Jessie's Rockwell Club from July 3-10, before going to Hong Kong for his next culinary journey.

It's awesome to meet chefs while they're still starting out, to get to taste their food now, and then compare it later on when they become more experienced celebrity chefs. Chef Jeff's food is a mix of Asian and Western influences from his training at Noma, Per Se, and Burnt Ends, using fresh, local ingredients and his favorite Filipino components.

Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady - The Musical (A Review)

Instagram

Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady (The Musical)-3.jpg

Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady (KPANLL) is a proudly Original Filipino Musical about the aspirations and tribulations of the common Filipino, set amidst a battle between superheroes and supervillains. The show is very endearing throughout, flawlessly integrating Pinoy humor, poking fun at our quirky habits and (mis)pronunciation of words, and a hopeless love story.

I was in awe after the latest media preview at Onstage Greenbelt 1. It was my first time to watch the show, and we couldn't stop laughing and enjoyed it immensely.

I'm proud to be a witness of this coming of age of Philippine Theater and to watch history as it unfolds. Don't miss out on the show that everyone is raving about! Check out KPANLL - The Musical...

I felt so proud after watching Waves, a high-quality Philippine movie about an intimate island love story, starring alluring Polish model Ilona Struzik, and Filipino Actor Baron Geisler. Audiences are sure to be mesmerized by the cinematic backdrop of Mangenguey Island in Palawan and the Whale sharks of Cebu, both featured throughout the movie.

Could we finally be seeing a renaissance of the art of film making in the Philippines? Thanks to Waverly Pictures, a Cebu-based motion picture company dedicated to more in-depth, quality, and narrative films, that just might be the case.

WAVES opens today (June 24) in Philippine Cinemas!

Here are a few reasons why you shouldn't miss watching this island love story...
