We Enjoyed The Launch of Vincent Eco’s Kiss & Disappear

When you support a local artist, you support our own creativity and freedom.

“Kiss & Disappear” Album Launching (Slide Show)

Supporting an artist at a local scene is the key to an artists’ success. We know Vincent Eco from the local music scene, where he shows every piece of his soul from his songs.  Vincent Eco is a combination of quality voice and great music, with his new album ready to serenade not just his fans but also us, Cebuanos.

He offers a great story of love and heartbreaks. He sends a rhythm to a soul hungry for healing. He comforts someone through his songs, sharing his experiences and inspiring people with his passion, growth and hard work.

Vincent Eco had come a long way since his debut single, “I Know You Do”. His soulful songs are drawn from his experiences from love and heartbreaks.

The artist’s fans celebrated the launch and digital release of his new album “Kiss & Disappear” last June 30, 2018 at Sugid, A Space Cebu. The album, “Kiss & Disappear” was written and composed by Vincent Eco, produced by Cattski Espina, and released under the local record label, 22 Tango Records.

“Kiss & Disappear” has 11 soulful songs in line; Kiss & Disappear, I Know You Do, Make You Stay, Chasing Happiness, We Don’t Talk, Falling ft. Lourdes Maglinte, Last Oath, Fire, Human, Please Don’t Let Me Go and Ramona.

Upon entering the venue, people were already lining up at the registration area to buy the entrance tickets. Guests satisfied their fangirl cravings with Vincent Eco’s merchandise. With a gate fee of P200, fans sat down on the floor to watch the man of the night. Prior to the start of the event, fans were able to witness some scenes of the 4-Part Mini Documentary Series on the making of Kiss & Disappear. Homegrown artists such as J Russ x DT and Lourdes Maglinte performed during the event.

The venue was packed with fans enjoying the chill vibes from the different local artists. You could feel the hairs on your body rising every time the fans would sing-along to the songs. He serenades his fans though his passionate vocal and enchanting lyrics that one’s hungry soul couldn’t get enough of. Some of his songs were written years ago, yet you could still feel the freshness of emotion when he sang the heartfelt story of “Last Oath” on stage. Fans stood up to their feet for his last song of the night, “Fire”.

When you support a local artist, you support our own creativity and freedom. Once these artists can express themselves, beautiful and soulful songs such as “Kiss & Disappear” can be admired and embraced not just the fans but by the Cebuano community. These songs not only reflect Vincent Eco’s ideas but also his story and emotion behind each song.

Here’s What Cebu’s Restaurateurs are Preparing for Easter Week

The arrival of Holy Week often means a mass exodus out of the city—whether it’s for a trip back to one’s hometown or an opportunity for a vacation. That being said, food choices during this time are often limited, with restaurants cutting down hours to prepare for the holidays, or creating menus that suit the season.
 
While it’s interesting to know what these food spots will offer, we’re curious about what the people behind them prepare at home. To satiate our curiosity, we asked some of Cebu’s notable chefs and restaurateurs what they’re cooking up this week.
 
 
“For Most Holy week days, we’re most likely out of town. But buona pascqua is huge in Italy. So when we’re in town, we’re spending Sundays around the kitchen. We do gnocchi in all sorts of forms. We’re rolling it, then pan frying, adding reduced liquid , adding meat. Using cauliflower to make it healthier. And how can Easter be without a sweet? A Burnt Caramelized mini “otap” Tart with pear is our choice.” —Kate Anzani, Anzani
 
 
“One day this Holy Week, it’s going to be ribeye, mashed potatoes, puttanesca pasta for dinner and homemade tacos & margarita for the afternoon. Other days, we dine out.” —Jan Rodriguez, Weekend

Here’s How Cebu’s Milk Tea Shops Are Changing How We Enjoy Milk Tea

Milk tea shops are always filled to the brim daily by tens and hundreds of milk tea lovers from all around the city to savor their favorite iced milk tea drinks. At this point, milk tea businesses are upping their game with the tough competition.

The milk tea frenzy continues to go viral in the city of Cebu and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Milk tea shops are always filled to the brim daily by tens and hundreds of milk tea lovers from all around the city to savor their favorite iced milk tea drinks. At this point, milk tea businesses are upping their game with the tough competition, may it be creating new and unique flavors to add to their menu, creating delivery systems for easier transactions in the comforts of their customers’ homes or innovating new products that are inspired from the flavorful milk tea drink.

That being said, we prepared a list of the different ways to enjoy milk tea in Cebu for all the milk tea lovers out there.

 

Milk Tea Shake

Zagu’s Pearl Milk Tea

Way before this nationwide obsession for milk tea had started, Zagu, the famous pearl shake brand in the Philippines, was one step ahead of bringing us a shake flavor that would unknowingly become a trend in the upcoming years. Zagu has been serving our favorite flavored drink for years now and people are still talking about it.

Zagu’s Pearl Milk Tea is fairly sweet just like any typical iced milk tea drink that you can buy but this one has a unique twist to its texture that you cannot find in any tea shop around the city. With the summer coming along, this milk tea will definitely cool you from the heat and satisfy your milk tea cravings as well. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to go through great lengths in finding a Zagu. You can basically find it in any mall in Cebu. Just go to a food court and you’ll surely find one.

 

Milk Tea Float

Coke floats and coffee floats from famous fast food chains were all the rage years ago. With today’s trends it’s no surprise that someone would definitely create something similar to a float. That being said, Serenitea brings us the joy of enjoying everyone’s favorite drink in a way we’re used to, a cold drink with sweet goodness on top.

Serenitea brings you a drink and a treat, all in one cup, with their milk tea float served in a variety of flavors that you can choose from. Beat the summer heat by enjoying Serenitea’s Milk Tea Ice Cream drinks that comes with various flavors that you can choose from and enjoy.

The latest trend among everything in the list is the new milk tea soft serve that is available in a milk tea shop that is also new in Cebu. The famous milk tea soft serve from Koala Tea definitely broke the internet when they introduced the soft serve last month, making every milk tea lover shake with excitement as they try a new way to enjoy their milk teas.

Koala Tea serves their milk tea soft serve with pearls or oreo as a topping but if the two doesn’t float your boat, it’s okay! Koala Tea prepared a variety of toppings that you can add with your soft serve such as pudding, cream cheese and many more. They even have a waffle to go with your soft serve. How amazing is that? With the variety that they offer, surely, you’ll find one that suits your taste.

Koala Tea is located at SSY Business Center, Salinas Drive, Lahug.

Their bestselling Okinawa flavored milk tea is now served in an ice blend topped with whipped cream and drizzled with caramel syrup and Okinawa powder. What better way to thank all the Serenitea lovers than bringing them a variety of choices to enjoy their favorite drink? Now, you don’t have to choose between ordering a frappe and a milk tea because Serenitea serves them both in one cup for you.
