This Thai wine dinner last May 3 at Benjarong, Dusit Thani Manila was quite impressive.
Dubbed as “Epicurean: A Thai Gastronomic Journey,” it featured Thanintorn Chantharawan “Chef Noom” of Michelin-starred restaurant Chim by Siam Wisdom; Visootha Lohitnavy “Nikki,” oenologist and winemaker of GranMonte; and Watcharapon Yongbanthom “Chef Ja,” Benjarong Manila’s Thai Chef de Cusine.
We enjoyed the dinner so much. Plus, it gave us a new appreciation of fine Thai cuisine in Manila.
Here’s a photo essay of the gastronomic Thai dinner at Benjarong…

Tapenade is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro for all-day dining and meetings with friends or business associates because of the salad bar and the Mediterranean take on the food. You can eat healthily and not be bloated after the meal. What’s more, each dish is something different from what’s usual in Manila.
Here’s what we like in the latest menu of Tapenade at Discovery Primea.
Ground Floor, Discovery Primea Hotel

FLAME Restaurant is Primea’s fine casual restaurant, by Executive Chef Luis Chikiamco, which now focuses on Modern Asian cuisine that is “all at once playful and sophisticated.”
This is one of the best places to dine in Makati, with a 16th floor vantage point of the metro and food that is always on point and relevant.
Here’s what we loved at FLAME Restaurant when we dined with the family:

Finally, the beloved culinary institution Le Cordon Bleu (the oldest culinary school founded in 1895) is now in Manila in partnership with Ateneo de Manila University (founded in 1859 by the Society of Jesus).

I must be honest. There would be two types of theater goers after watching the award-winning Angels in America by American playwright Tony Kushner: the one who would rave about the theatrical perfection of this groundbreaking masterpiece, and the one who got bored to death.
For some, they need to know what it is all about before committing to watching with friends. For me, when I watch plays, I usually go clueless about what it is all about, so as to have no biases. I let the story unfold, appreciate the narrative and finish the show with an internal reflection of what it means to me.
I’ll let you know what I think at the end of this post.

Performing Arts and Recreation Center (PARC) Volunteers
Volunteering is both a selfless give-and-take act because you work for free to contribute to the community but in return, you discover yourself while your love tank is filled by the people you helped.
But these days, you have to be careful about which volunteer groups to join because some exploits the community they work with by making them dependent on volunteers instead of making the community better.
iVolunteer Philippines is the leading organization that connects volunteers to the rightful NGOs and communities for the last 10 years. Every year, they hold a GO! Volunteer Expo to showcase and meet the different volunteer groups. This is a great opportunity also for volunteers to look for where they can offer their skills to the group that would benefit the most.
This year, the GO! Volunteer Expo will happen at Glorietta Activity Center on April 6 & 7, 2019.
This time, iVolunteer Philippines is making it an even bigger event that will celebrate everyday Filipino heroes and the timeless act of giving back. iVolunteer believes that when given the opportunity, Filipinos are always willing to answer the call for help.
Here’s the complete list of Volunteer Communities that you can join:
