Southbank: Alabang’s Secret Melbourne-inspired Cafe

It’s starting to feel like Melbourne in the south because of the demand for better cafes and better lounge and food experience in the Alabang Area.

This motivated Patrick Leyble, Wendy Esteban and Stevie Ang, who moved back from Melbourne to start a new wave of cool cafes and lounges inspired by the Melbourne scene, to create Southbank. We loved the food, the gin+cocktail program and the warm hospitality of the owners.

We tried this out for breakfast and lunch with the family, and here are our favorites…

Harry Potter in Concert in Manila Review

It was our first time watching a CineConcert where the entire film is shown on a 40-foot screen playing only the original dialogue (with subtitle), with the music performed live by a symphony orchestra in sync with the movie.

It was indeed a magical experience to watch the original Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone™ with the musical score performed live by the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gerard Salonga.

Air Asia’s InspiRED Inflight Menu to Help End HIV/AIDS!

AirAsia launches a burger that can help save lives. The InspiRED Burger features a mouthwatering chicken patty infused with fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, topped with zesty green chili mayonnaise, shredded purple cabbage and tomato on a red beetroot bun. It’s the best burger I’ve eaten while up in the air!

The InspiRED burger was a creation of New York-based chef ambassador Hong Thaimee who wanted to combine the best of both worlds with Thai flavors in an all-American classic. The result? An east-meets-west burger that delivers a satisfying spicy punch!

For every inspiRED burger, 10% of the purchase price goes to a fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Besides the burger, you’ll also love the award-winning Santan inflight menu. Here’s a look at what else we loved…
