Beautiful! The Carole King Musical Manila (Review)

YES! I still can’t believe that Beautiful: The Carole King Musical is now playing in Manila!

It’s on top of my Broadway musical bucket list ever since I missed watching it in Broadway and West End. Watching it in Manila was extra special because it was more relatable with the Manila cast, and we witnessed Kyla Rivera, whom we watched In the Heights (2011), bloom into Carole King’s lead role (2019).

Best to watch it raw, without reading any reviews and in the company of your musical-lovin’ friends. Grab the last remaining shows of the first Meralco Theatre run that’s only until July 7, 2019.

Having said that, here’s why it is sooo beautiful to watch…

S Kitchen Sheraton Sunday Fiesta Buffet! @SheratonManila

Read first: Sheraton Manila Hotel: Secrets of Sheraton Staycation

After my Sunday Fiesta buffet in Sheraton, I knew this would be a perfect place to bring my balikbayan and international guests for a taste of Filipino cuisine but in a modern luxurious setting.

S Kitchen features a wide spread of international selections from East to West, but unlike other hotel buffets in Manila, its focal point is its Filipino station. You’ll love the Lechon de Leche stuffed with Paella, truffle kare-kare, homemade native delicacies and, of course, the “paluto station” that serves fresh seafood—crabs, shrimp, shells and even a whole lapu-lapu (grouper) cooked to your own liking!

Even the interiors of S Kitchen have a Filipino touch, from the traditional fish net inspired chandeliers to the Igorot-printed tiles.

Here’s what you’ll find at S Kitchen’s Sunday Fiesta Buffet priced at Php 2,500 only…

The best gift a father can get is a family barbershop session and a day with the boys.

Here are some tips to organize your own grooming and booze experience with the boys…

Barbershop Packages Menu

I like that they focus on providing a quality barbershop experience, with packages starting with the Old Sport (450) to the ultra-pampering The West Egg (2,255).

Shave, Hand and Foot Care, Massage, Hair Care and Color

They have all the proper grooming equipment and add-on services you would look for in a quality barbershop.

Some of the grooming products are made from organic ingredients or the best grooming products for men in the market.

Best of all, they are kid-friendly and welcoming to the entire family.

Seascape Village: Golden Fortune vs. Lola Ina’s

The family is loving crabs these days and the best place to indulge in these is at Seascape Village paluto market.

We tried the crab and seafood feasts in two restaurants: Binondo’s Golden Fortune vs. Dampa’s Lola Ina’s. Here’s our experience.

 

First Things First

Seascape Village, which opened its first phase of the seaside mall with 13 Filipino/Asian paluto restaurants, is a mixed-use coastal development in the Manila Bay area located beside Sofitel and Manila Film Center.

We featured Go Go Kitchen vs. Mazu Seaside Diner in this post: Seascape Village Market: The Best & Cleanest Paluto Market in Manila?!

It’s similar to the dampa paluto concept, and they make sure their pricing is always at par with Seaside Dampa Macapagal.

You pay for the market price of the crabs which costs 500-600/kilo.
