The Arts and the Children with Special Needs

Samantha with coach Kenn Sioson

For me, the arts have always been the great equalizer in the society. Age, educational background, economic standing, and even if you have special needs, it really doesn’t matter, as long as you have the talent. It is, therefore, a fitting event for the arts and the children with special needs as the Center for Possibilities Foundation (CFP) stages a back-to-back event on January 28 at the RCBC Plaza in Makati. At 5:30 in the afternoon, the self-titled exhibit of 19-year-old special artist Samantha Kaspar will open to the public. At 7:00 in the evening, the Manila Symphony Orchestra will take center stage. This will be an event worthy of attending, one that I don’t want to miss, especially upon learning about the artists during a press conference. Art Auction The art exhibit entitled “Samantha” will showcase around 40 artworks. Some of these on fabric to be used as fashion ...

Jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap Experience

Jamming with Bamboo

I attended “Rock On With An Icon,” an event that officially welcomed Rock Star and The Voice Philippines coach Bamboo Manalac to the Jollibee Family. Held at the Craft Pub and Grill at The Fort Strip last January 21st, it was an awesome experience watching him perform. Most of all, we had a chance to sing with him and I can say that jamming with Bamboo is a #BeefedUpSarap experience. And as an icing on the cake, I was part of the group that jammed and won the competition. I’m sure you’ve seen the newest television commercial of Jollibee for one of it’s dishes, the Garlic Pepper Beef featuring Bamboo in the lead. It’s one of my favorite dish to order, and because it’s only Php50, I can order it over and over again. For me, a beef dish makes dining special and I experience that whenever I’m at Jollibee, ...
