Flow In the Farm for the Long Weekend

Back in September of last year, the fab ladies of Flow Retreats partnered with the beautiful ladies of Holy Carabao to host Flow In the Farm, which was a fantastic time for everyone! So, they decided to do it again. Last Saturday, Flow In the Farm part deux took place at The Farm Shed at the Acacia Waldorf School in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, with lots of fun activities for the kids, workshops for both the young’uns and their parents, holistic food vendors, and interesting little stalls at the eco market that sold everything from grow kits to all natural sunblock.

The Commercialization of San Pedro Cutud’s Cricifixions

I honestly didn’t know what to expect when Jericho and I made our way to Pampanga yesterday morning. I had been reading about the real-life crucifixions as part of the Lenten rites all over the Philippines, Cutud, especially, and had wanted to see one for myself for the solemnity, the drama, the stories behind the penitents for mortifying their flesh as an act of contrition every Good Friday.

#SpreadtheCheese with La Petite Fromagerie’s Cheese Catering

The incredibly talented Karla Reyes of Swizzle Mobile Bar, Go Gourmet by The Plaza, and The Plaza Catering, has a new baby… and it’s really cheesy! Literally. This multi-talented biz wiz put up a premium cheese buffet in Metro Manila and everyone’s going gaga over the creamy, strong, stinky varieties of cheese on offer. She hosted an intimate gathering the launch of La Petite Fromagerie, and so naturally, everyone came out in droves to support the advent of unlimited French cheese in Manila.

A New Moon Thanksgiving Concert with Lee Grane

After everyone had finished eating and settled down, Lee came up to the stage and started playing. How have I never heard of this woman before? What rock was I living under?! Her voice is amaaaazing! And all her original songs are about (or written under) full moons, which if you believe in angels and muses, is pretty special. Her rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah is probably one of my favorites.

Millenials, Please Tell Your Kids Why #MarcosIsNOTaHero

Fellow millennials, we need to know what happened during those 20 years martial law was in effect. In a world where people share their stories with a click of a button, you just need to search #MarcosIsNOTaHero to understand where the fuel of this fire is coming from. Empathize with just how atrocious this act is for everyone who risked their lives, underwent torture, and died for our civil rights, and for the families who were directly affected by this. It is NOT ok to not care. This country will soon be passed to us, after all.
