For those hot days, rainy nights, movie marathon afternoons and midnight snacks, ice cream has always been there for us. With so many exciting flavors to choose from like Pistachio, Chocolate Truffle and Salted Caramel, Gelatissimo reminds us of strolling along the beautiful streets of Rome and the sun on our shoulders.

Marisse Patisserie

Homebaked and fresh are two things that are hard to find in cafés these days. However, a little side trip to 32 Sanson in Lahug lies a hidden gem with a relaxing ambiance. Offering freshly brewed coffee and baked goods right from their kitchen, Marisse Patisserie has become a sweet getaway in the heart of Cebu.

A short climb on the highlands of Cebu rests a beautiful paradise away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Delice Recipe features a first hand experience of Cebu’s beautiful skyline as well as their must-try Quattro Leches – a spongy chiffon cake soaked in 4 kinds of sweet milk. Pair that with coffee or tea and that’s a one-way ticket to dessert heaven. You’re welcome.

Crepes are a must-try at Tymad Bistro, a French café in Banilad owned and operated by a French chef. We recommend topping it with anything that tickles your fancy, whether its Nutella or Mango and Whipped Cream. If that’s not up in your alley, macaroons, cheesecakes and parfaits are also ready for devouring.

With fresh breads and coffee in a Parisienne feel, Abaca Baking Company is quickly becoming the trendiest place in Cebu. The place is great but do not be fooled, the food is even greater. All food and drinks are whipped up right from the kitchen with the freshest ingredients they can get their hands on.

There’s the famous Malicious Cookies but aside from that, we highly recommend Marco Polo Plaza’s Earl Grape Iced Tea. The tea is served with elderflower-infused ice cubes and Earl Grey Tea poured over seedless green grapes. Along with a freshly baked lokum or Turkish delight, the drink is surely the perfect cool down for the summer heat.

22 Tango Records Celebrates 9 Years with Roll-Out

The music label celebrates 9 years of homegrown music.

Published

on

22 Tango Records celebrates its 9th year of producing and releasing quality local
music by hosting an anniversary event on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Draft Punk, Mango Square. “Roll-Out” will feature live acts from a carefully curated list of artists signed under the label.

Performing on stage will be Wonggoys, Bethany, Vincent Eco, Lourdes Maglinte, The Labrats, and Mother Folker (aka Cattski).

Along with this grand celebration will be the unveiling of 22 Tango Records’ new website, with updated features, music articles, events calendar, lots of music and valuable content not just about the label but also about the local music scene.

“As much as I feel like there’s reasons to celebrate, I feel like there’s still so much work to do.” Cattski expressed, when asked about their anniversary celebration. “We still have a long way to go. But, looking back, I’m proud of what we’ve done. We’ve explored the different aspects in the music business – from music creation, promotion, education, distribution, publishing and production – all in the hopes that we’ll ultimately co-create a sustainable local music industry.”

22 Tango Records has given opportunities for artistic growth and development for all their artists in the span of 9 years, training and guiding them to become better at their craft. The label plans to keep giving its support by continuously creating events designed to cater to different genres and music listeners, giving each a unique brand and working hard to keep it consistent.

“I believe in our potential.” Cattski says, “I think to have our own hyper local music industry is something that we strive for. We want the future to have thriving musicians capable and empowered to work for their music using the latest technology, communication means and with a supportive community”.

Chief Finance Officer and Co-founder Anne Muntuerto also shares her thoughts about 22 Tango Records advancing into bigger, more eventful years.

“I’m so proud of how 22 Tango Records has made a mark in the Cebu music scene no matter how small it may seem in the last 9 years,” she says. “We have been extremely lucky to be supported and surrounded by people who believe in our advocacy— our dedicated street team members, artists, brands and companies who have supported us, and 22T’s loyal listeners and followers. It takes a village. And it’s this tribe that inspires us to keep going.”

Catch Roll-Out on March 30th, Saturday, in Draft Punk, Mango Square. Music starts at 8PM with a door fee of P150, inclusive of one free drink.

You Can’t Miss The Final Performances of M. BUTTERFLY in Cebu

Published

on

For its final performances, the M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 will spread its wings at SM SEASIDE CEBU from March 14 – 17. Presented by Tony and Grammy award winning producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment (producer of highly-acclaimed independent films Bhoy Intsik and Bwaya), this world-class masterpiece is brought closer to those who did not have the opportunity to catch its 2018 Manila run. After all, location should not limit one’s exposure to the arts and culture.

Due to many challenges and technical details that come with productions, most theatre companies in the Philippines are often hindered from bringing their projects to other key cities. Because of this, Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment are taking this bolder step to carry on their mission and advocacy in the performing arts and to further enhance audience development throughout the Philippine archipelago.

A revival production of David Henry Hwang’s M. BUTTERFLY, this is the winner of the 2018 ALIW AWARDS for Best Play, Best Actor and Best Director and nominations for The Best Featured Actress in a Play.

Targeting audiences between ages 18 and beyond, the producers are
hoping that this classic drama, inspired by Giaccomo Puccini’s opera ‘Madame Butterfly’, will likewise resonate to theater audiences from Luzon, Vizayas and
Mindanao that “ love, power and deception holds no boundaries – whether this be
in a rural or urban setting.”

The M. BUTTERFLY NATIONAL TOUR 2019 will benefit the following charitable institutions namely: Iloilo Prima Galaw, Philippine National Red Cross Iloilo Chapter, The Children of Cebu Foundation, Silliman University Culture and Arts Council and the Arts Council of Cebu Foundation.

The schedule of performances of M. BUTTERFLY in Cebu are as follows:

Mar. 14 – Thursday – Opening Night – 7pm
Mar. 15 – Friday – 7pm
Mar. 16 – Saturday – 2pm / 7pm
Mar. 17 – Sunday – 2pm / 7pm
VENUE : SM Seaside City Centerstage

For tickets, you can get them at SM Tickets through any SM Mall or SMTickets.com.
