10 Highly-Interesting Things about Nitro7 Coffee & Tea Bar



At the office, I consume at least three cups of coffee in one day- two in the morning and one in the afternoon. While reading all the emails collected through the night, I indulge myself in the aroma of coffee. 

Every time I find myself in a tough situation checking on contracts, conceptualizing advertising materials, and other tasks I am oblige to attend to every single day, I find some comfort in a cup of coffee.

I remember my father back home in Sagada roasting beans in our kitchen, then pouring some water to our kettle to brew coffee for anyone who enters the house. Coffee is actually home.

Lately, I learned about Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar which is a good alternative to your Starbucks and Coffee Bean. Actually, it's the perfect alternative for non-coffee drinkers. Check item number 2 for the explanation.

#1.  Nitro 7 Coffee & Tea Bar is the first in the Philippines to specialize in coffee brewed with nitrogen.

#2. Nitrogen, when mixed with coffee, lowers the acidity of the beverage. Thus, those battling against food acidity may take more than one cup.



#3. Nitro7 may sound like a western Star Wars-inspired brand. But it’s 101% Filipino. Hats off to their marketing team!



#4. The number 7 in the name refers to the seven friends who partnered to make this coffee venture possible. Think no more. 

#5. The coffee beans they are using are from Benguet. It seems highland coffee is dominating the metro.

#6.  It takes 18 hours of brewing before coffee is mixed with nitrogen. Thus, nothing is instant in this shop.


#7.  As of now there are 17 branches of the coffee shop, with one in SM Megamall and another in Robinsons Galleria.

#8.  They also serve pizza and sandwiches! 


#9. The best seller is the Black cold brew.

#10. Their cup is 100%. The strong taste of coffee is lessened with the mixing of nitrogen. Thus, it is like drinking espresso without that bitter espresso taste.

Is the Maria Clara-Ibarra Love Team Still Relatable in 2019?


=
Before there was the tragic love story of Jack and Rose, there was the tear-jerking fate of Maria Clara and Don Crisostomo Ibarra.

Kanser, the musical based on Jose P. Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere and a flagship play of Gantimpala Theater Foundation's 42nd Theater Season, is getting another track of artistic interpretation by the iconic director Frannie Zamora. 


If you have watched it alongside dozens of youngsters at the AFP Theater last weekend, you will realize that this hugot generation still enjoys the chemistry between the two lovers. Or it must be the magic of the director who made a successful move of bringing the work of Rizal to the heart of the younger generation. He first directed a previous version of the same play in 1993. 

The play opened with a monologue of Pilosopo Tasyo whose Albert Einstein looks suggests that the play could be another boring academic classic.

There were six pillars that were moved to different positions in the stage to represent the structures in every setting, supplemented with a sand art perfectly blending in every scene.

The crowd of teens were amused with the good acting (and appearance) of Roni Abario as Tasyo. But when Maria Clara and Crisostomo Ibarra took the center stage, the crowd went wild-- as if they were on a fan’s day in a mall. 

In all fairness, all my expectations were delightedly NOT met. The musical play served both as an academic work and an entertainment piece.


How to be Maria Clara

Maria Clara was the show’s entire charm, a character played by Rare Columna who must have  survived a series of training to be able to bear the heavy old Spanish getup and the sets of ornaments hanging around her while pretending to be another person. 

Rare was flawlessly graceful despite her opposite personality. This is the first time the coloratura soprano from the University of Santo Tomas Conservatory of Music to do Kanser, although she has already played a role in Noli Me Tangere: the Opera in 2017.

I was even curious if she had some counting or any method to maintain the classiness of Maria Clara whenever she moves. As an actress, all she needed was some internalization and she blasts as someone not her.

The musical presented Maria Clara’s own tragedy as a royal, desirable beauty that ended up as a crying soul in the convent.

If you are seeing the show, you should watch out for the scene where Maria Clara gets into the convent, as this will give you an enchanting dose of Rare’s vocal prowess and acting ability.

Going beyond Rizal’s wavy hair

On the other side of the boat is the character of Don Crisostomo Ibarra, played by Kiel Alo who needed all the energy on earth to perform his scenes. 

Ibarra’s emotions were too extreme, and Kiel was able to handle every bit of it. Of course, the wavy hair of Rizal on his face was just an extra. 

Kiel made his own stamp on every scene that required a certain emotion without overdoing it. I also noticed that his own portrayal of Ibarra had no trail of toxic masculinity; he still had that gentle aura despite all the aggressiveness. 

If Kiel did a rougher image I am sure watching Ibarra walking into the stage could be stressful for someone in the audience who is 100% involved in the story of every character in the play.

Before landing the lead role, Kiel played Elias in the previous versions of the show. Do not be surprised if one day you hear his voice over the radio as he is also chasing a different character as himself- a recording artist. And his concert in November is one milestone in his career you should not miss.

Kiel Alo (Don Crisostomo Ibarra) faces the camera of blogger Axl Guinto to talk about his role in the musical.

Yes, they are still relatable!

Aside from the highly-entertaining Pilosopo Tasyo, Donya Victorina (Sarah Maniquis), Don Tiburcio (Lezlie Dailisan), and Sinang (Jesiela Gripo), everyone in the audience was becoming more engaged with the show as Ibarra tries to touch the untouchable Maria Clara. 

However, it seems Maria Clara was more playful than the gentleman Ibarra. She was more flirty, or maybe we were too focused on Ibarra's tough image.

As a reward to the audience, the two sported a kissing scene that froze time inside the theater as everyone cheered loudly at the top of their lungs. Shocked, I honestly could not pull myself together when the two grabbed each other-- the electricity level was turned to the highest!


Padre Damaso is human, too

Everyone knows that Padre Damaso is the most evil priest. But in the show, he is less evil and not the total villain.

Padre Damaso’s picture is a brand of a corrupt person, looking big inside his priestly garb. Leo Ponseca, who once played Padre Salvi, had to study how his godfather priest moved to be able to get the perfect gestures for Padre Damaso.

Wearing the attire of a priest could be limiting, but Leo filled his face with the needed emotions to convey the hatred, the disgust, the anxiety, the sadness, the love towards his daughter, inside Padre Damaso. 

What the show incredibly did was that it gave Padre Damaso a better image- as a tormented father who wants the best for his sick daughter. The show ended with some pity on him.

If Padre Damaso was real and Kanser was produced during his time, the musical could qualify as a PR tool.

Another shining star in the making!

If Padre Damaso was just a runner up for the most evil, the title goes to Padre Salvi.

Just like Rare who played Maria Clara, Carlo Mendoza had to transform himself into a hate-able man. He shared with us that it took time for him to master how to do eye gestures and the overall body language of Padre Salvi.

I thought Carlo can now dress up as Miss Minchin. The real Carlo is the opposite. He is nice, warm and mild. 

Carlo’s character makeover to a tiny man hiding a gigantic monster inside him was quite fascinating that you will crave to see him do the same role after a year or two-- with much deeper, mature voice.

Rare Columna (Maria Clara) and Carlo Mendoza (Padre Salvi) share with us how they trained for their role. 

The Best Actor Award goes to....

Well, it goes to the actor that did Elias.

Carlo Manalac’s portrayal of Elias deserves the loudest applause. With less help from his costume, Carlo’s Elias almost stole the glory of Ibarra. Let truth be told, Carlo could make a good Ibarra, too.

Carlo was effective as the doomed man. He was totally natural. 

All throughout the show, he was effectively advertising Elias as a very mysterious man with a background everyone should be so interested in.

In real life, Carlo is a former Music teacher who recently left public service to pursue his artistic aspirations. And his performance in this musical is a proof he made the right decision.

Sisa! Crispin! Basilio!

Watching Sisa in Kanser was really agonizing. The play elaborated on how this poor mother of Crispin and Basilio ended that way.

Sisa was played by Richelle Joson who did a wonderful job. JV Pascual did Crispin while Juan Miguel Tecson did Basilio.

While Sisa’s latter appearances as a dirty, crazy woman could be something the audience can laugh at, no one did because everyone knew her story, her pain.

I also find JV’s innocent voice very captivating, making the scene where Crispin disappears, not reunited with her mother one hell of a heartbreaking moment in the entire musical. 


While the story of the play is trully parallel to the modern society, with all the bad news, and the bad vibes, and the bad people, it is interesting to note that love- I am saying this like a teenager who has got a crush on someone- will always be there to make everything light and bright. Kanser is not limited to patriotism, it also talks about being in love while being patriot. Hats off to the entire production team!

What's the Healthy Recipe for the Skin?



I could not forget one evening in Baguio when a friend of mine, who has been an activist ever since we were in college, told me one truth about looking the most beautiful.

Before you launch your quest to lose weight and develop a glowing skin, she said, you should be happy first.  I felt it was not her-- this person who has been angry at everything not just the government talking about becoming happy?

I thought it was just the beer we were drinking or the show we just saw at Camp John Hay Theater that evening. But she was not drank, she just gone wiser than I am. 

Yes, happy. That four-letter word that that has been underrated, because we always think of how people perceive us without thinking of how we feel about being ourselves.

So before trying to look best, the first thing to do is to find happiness. Here's some things to consider to become happy. 



First, fulfill your goals.

I am sure you have aspirations for yourself and your family. I am also sure that every time you get a check mark on your bucket list, you glow brighter. 

Didn’t you notice that you do not shine whenever you fail?

Second, exercise regularly and maintain a healthy diet.

Exercising really works as sweating is good for the skin. Even a 10-minute brisk walk do great wonders to the skin. 

The best thing nowadays is there are 24-hour gyms around the town so there is no reason not to be physically active. 

Aside from exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy diet also speeds up the process. So fill your fridge with fruits, veggies, and other good foods not just for the stomach but now for the skin. 

Third, be positive.

I know it is not easy to be positive especially when you are in a toxic environment. 

From one management training I have attended, I learned that how we react on a certain incident is based on the message that we tell ourselves. Thus, we should train ourselves to always interpret every incident towards a more positive outlook. 

For instance, when someone is always late, we should not tell ourselves that that person should be punished. Instead, we tell ourselves that that person may need our help. 

I think this explains why most villains do not have a good skin. Being positive all the time brings out the youthful glow in the skin.


Now it is easier to work on a skin that is worth flaunting. Proactiv has developed the 3-Step Clear Skin System. The system uses the Smart Target technology to deliver anti-acne formulation directly to the pores.

Step 1: Skin Smoothing Exfoliator. 

After washing with a facial cleanser to remove dirt, oil and other impurities, apply the exfoliator on damp skin. Give the face a two-minute massage before completely rinsing with warm water.

Step 2: Pore Targeting Treatment. 

The blemish-fighting solution is directly applied on the pores by spreading it evenly all over cheeks, forehead nose and chin. Leave on face until full absorption.

Step 3: Skin System repairs the skin with the Complexion Perfect Hydrator. The moisturizer heals redness, helps diminish awkward acne marks and brightens skin. Apply on face until full absorption. Reapply during the day as needed. Don’t forget to put sunscreen if you need to go outdoors.

Now available at Watsons and SM Department stores nationwide:

30-Day kit: P3,250
Skin Smoothing Exfoliator 60 ml,
Pore Targeting Treatment 30ml
Complexion Perfecting Hydrator 30 ml

When Auntie Carol Passed Away



It’s a Thursday evening and while wondering what my weekend will be like, I came across a Facebook post about my beloved people who passed away early.

From the posts of Manang Marlene, a good cousin of mine in La Trinidad, I realized it is the death anniversary of Auntie Carol, my mom’s sister.



Here are her posts: 



When Auntie Carol was still alive, she would regularly come home to Ambasing to sweep the dried leaves falling off the tall persimmon trees around their house in Patok.

She would bring junkies with her that we eat for snack once we're done burning all the dried leaves. She always had a supply of Pringles in can.

For a couple of times, I could not give a hand because I was growing a fever. I would sit at their house's balcony and pick some junkies.

Here is throwback photo of me with other cousins at that balcony during one of the early reunion events we had. Try looking for me. 


If you notice there is an old car at the right side of the photo. That served as our play pen during our innocent years. During one of the last times I was gone home, I took a photo of it in its new location. 


I remember it clearly—it was a Friday evening. And without telling my parents, we went to a mountain south of our place to visit my classmates on a camping program.

After eating dinner, we lay down in the dark with no plans of walking home. Suddenly, everyone’s attention was caught by a bright light coming from afar.

The light, with its noise, stopped and a tall man followed the trail going to where we were laying down. 

Without talking, I grabbed my bag. A teen embarrassed in front of his troupe. 

His eyes were very mad, and he spoke no word until we reached home. Uncle Miguel, a distant relative accompanied him.

As I sat in the living room waiting to be confronted or punished, I saw my mother packing her things. My two younger brothers were already asleep.

My mother went out of their room and told me to check on the tiny gems as she is leaving for La Trinidad in a few hours. She should catch the earliest bus trip to attend her sister's wake.

Noli Me Tangere Musical "Kanser" is Back



Just like any show worthy of the time of more than one generation, Kanser has gone through numerous revisions in staging.

From its shows at the Bulwagang Gantimpala, an intimate theater presentation to the proscenium production of the CCP Main Theater and the Met Theater plus all the other venues in the country, a change of hands in the person of actors and production people, Kanser gave the numerous talented people the opportunity to be a part of a classic play.
Its title may sound quite negative for its medical origin. But for a show looking for an impact as a societal merit, it's a head turner-- and the show wants to be relevant, not entertaining.

Seasoned directors have also given their share of interpreting the play:
Tony Espejo
Jake de Asis
Roobak Valle
Adriana Agcaoili
Mia Gutierrez
Frannie Zamora
Jun Flavier Pablo




The present production is now a tighter version of original Kanser, The Musical (produced last 2015) that was presented during its 35th year anniversary.

Director Frannie Zamora, the man behind Nardong Putik (Kilabot ng Cavite), Waiting, and Muling Umawit ang Pusohas skillfully infused about 10 songs from the musical into the straight play - a welcome revision that has delighted the viewers. But what charm does the production of Kanser have that captivated hundreds of thousands of students and theater aficionados through the years?

Maybe it is the story. A love story woven by Rizal with a dash of patriotism, idealism, deceit and uncanny revelations.

Could it be the staging of the play where actors are garbed in an almost authentic costumes that compliment the language and mannerisms of the period? Or maybe the relevance of the incidents that still mirrors the present times.

All these and more is what Kanser has now been regarded as indeed a classic production.

Dear Monday, Fuck Off!





My phone was alarming, torturing my fat body to leave everything at dream land. It was 7AM.

I gave myself some minutes to wrap up my affair with the thick uratex foam. After 10 minutes, it was nine in the morning. It was also the start of my shift at Cathay Land.

I ran to the bathroom to take a shower. All my roommates were still sleeping; there was no competition or queue.

----------------

My plan was to wear long sleeves, but I knew it would take an additional 10 minutes to iron press my attire. I chose my favorite white short sleeves.

-----------------
While looking for my little handy, I already booked a motor taxi on Facebook. When MMDA re-implemented the two-lane stuff, traffic got worse that traveling to Oritas from Cubao in the morning takes an hour.

The motor taxi, okay habal- habal, was acting nice. He offered me a freebie- a mask to protect my nose from the air pollution on EDSA as we were to join the country’s busiest thoroughfare.

As we reached Robinsons Galleria, the habal-habal driver gave me his script when thanking his customers. I ran to catch an elevator ride.

--------------

I got inside the office and the light inside my boss’ room turned on already. He’s in; I’m officially late.

Work. Meeting. Work. Meeting. Oh yeah, it’s Monday.

---------------

It’s almost seven in the evening. Everyone was ready to shut their computer down for home, to be with their loved ones. As of me, I have no loved ones with me. All I have are three boys, all strangers, who care nothing about me-- because we are all renting the same unit.

In as much as I wanted to get my ass off Galleria Corporate Center, I promised to give my writing task a shot when no one is around to disturb my disturbed mind. I extended to write some paragraphs.

---------------

My boss admitted he thought I would not come to the office that day. I have a habit of being the absentee of the day on Mondays with the reason of being tired from my Baguio-Manila travel shit.

Oh the late Christian!

He may not be aware that I spent my weekend here, so there should be no reason for this black sheep to go astray again on a Monday morning.

--------------

The weather forecaster was making some guess of having a stormy weather in the metro this evening. I looked for my bag and found no umbrella.

All I needed to do was to pray. That the rain will not pour while I go to the National Kidney and Transplant Institute on East Avenue.

-----------------

I rode a bus going to NKTI. I joined the queue of these tired, sleepy people attending to the needs of their patient. I waited for around 45 minutes, sitting on a chair and checking on my phone.

My battery was only 30% full, better than my energy which only got 1%.

Finally, the pharmacist called me saying she cannot give me the medicine I am buying since my prescription is not updated. I explained to her:

1. The doctor did not give us new prescription (I just made this up)

2.  hope she considers it because the patient is in Sagada and the meds will be taken to Baguio first for some processing

3. Please.

4. Please. Please :)

Anyway, it was a no. Then came the miracle.

The poor pharmacist, who would talk to everyone in line, said she could give me one tablet only. I accepted.

Thanks to Facebook, I was able to inform my cousins about the one tablet I was about to send.

-------------

I rushed to Victory Liner Cubao. I placed the medicine inside a dried noodle packaging, dropped it at the shipping counter, and looked for a place to quench my thirst.

The day was up, sealing it off with another session in the shower room which was actually the best part of the day. Oh that smell of shampoo....

The end. It's now Tuesday.

Anyway, here's a good selfie while at Lancris yesterday:


10 FAQS About Proactiv+ 3-Step Clear Skin System


I am thrilled to share with you that I now live in Amaia Skies Cubao, in a rented condominium unit, with three other male tenants. The best thing about having male roommates is that there is a very comfortable level of talking about things only the male populace can understand.

Oops, this has nothing to do with the current issue on gender discrimination. Let's go to simpler stuff like shaving facial hair and hair thinning. 

The other night, we were talking about skincare which is something unusual among “boys” since this topic is traditionally for the "feminine". We talked about how sensitive our skin can become, and I even learned that one of my roommates spends P10K per session of some skin laser treatment (2 of 5 done)  because he just wants to become a Flight Attendant with glowing skin.

I just realized that skincare for men is best discussed with men. Agree?

On another note, the good thing about our country is that we're being tapped by the world's best provider of skincare, both from the East or the West. As one whose skin is quite sensitive, I am glad Proactiv is already available here.
