Meeting the "Moonlight Over Paris" Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos!

Who can't forget his greatest love song "Moonlight Over Paris" which revitalized the return of the acoustic love songs in the music scene?! Well, I'm only a college student that time when the said song dominated the different radio stations giving rise to original prince of acoustic music, Paolo Santos!

Again, I was so privileged to meet and talk with this Acoustic Prince Paolo Santos one Friday night in Tambayan Sa Kanto. On the said night, Paolo is featured and performed in the resto-bar's "Acoustic Night."      

Well before  anything else, check out our cool photos together:




It seems that we've traveled back in the early part of 2000's as Paolo played his music. He made me reminisce my college love stories as he sang his undying hit "Moonlight Over Paris" and his very own rendition of the previous hit song "Because of You."    

Aside from the said songs, Paolo even serenaded us with his versions of the love songs like "Overjoyed," "Close," "Perfect Day," and "I'll Be Over You."

Paolo is not only a good singer, he is also a perfect guitarist! He played his own instrument which is his guitar while singing. Check him out performing below:



While enjoying the music of Paolo, me and my good friend Carlo even enjoyed the foods served to us by Tambayan Sa Kanto. I ordered my favorite kare-kare (this time kare-kareng bagnet) and tinapa rice while my friend enjoyed pancit guisado. And for drinks, I was satisfied by the banana-papaya shake while Carlo by iced margarita!    

Those were just some of the great foods served by Tambayan Sa Kanto. The restaurant was known as an All-Filipino Cuisine Restaurant Cafe as it serves all types of Pinoy regional foods!

And yes, aside from the Pinoy foods, Tambayan also shows "Acoustic Nights" every Friday and Saturday nights featuring the different famous and talented Filipino artists! And one of these is Paolo Santos!

Want to enjoy great music while enjoying Filipino dishes at the same time?! Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the ground floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

So let's go, tara, tambay na! (RCB)

Food Bits: Tasting Tambayan's Very Own 'Tinapa Rice!'

Last Friday night, me and my good friend once more visited our favorite tambayan resto-bar in The Podium, the Tambayan Sa Kanto. We jammed with the celebrity guest Paolo Santos who was that night's "Acoustic Night" featured celebrity.     

What caught my interest during the night was the food I ordered. I got amazed when I learned that Tambayan offers a type of rice called "Tinapa Rice!" And this is unique which we can only order in Tambayan. 

We were very much familiar with fried rice, java rice, japanese rice, pandan rice, or any types of rice offered by different restaurants. Now this time, get ready to know Tinapa Rice

Check out the up, close photos of Tinapa Rice and tell me why it is called as such:   






Tinapa Rice is a rice topped with Tinapa (smoked fish) bits. Completing the cast of this very good yummy dish are itlog na maalat (salty egg), tomato slices, onion rings, and dahon ng sibuyas. It tastes a little salty which compromised the tasteless taste of the ordinary rice.     

As you can see, Tinapa Rice is very Filipino! If there is a Japanese Rice which carries the banner of Japan, then here at Tambayan, we have our very own Filipino Rice named Tinapa Rice which is Pinoy foods another flagship!

Tinapa Rice is only one of the great Filipino recipes that you can taste here and only here at Tambayan Sa Kanto. Yes, this resto-bar is a restaurant very much popular of serving different Filipino cuisines. Name your favorite Pinoy foods or regional foods, they have it cooked with love and hospitality - the two traits Filipinos are known! :) 

Want to taste more Pinoy favorites? Well, come and visit Tambayan Sa Kanto located at the Ground Floor of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City. Eat and enjoy the music! (RCB)

Rocky Talks with South Border's "Aspog" Vince Alaras!



When I was in college, I really love the songs like "Rainbow," "Love of My Life," and "Ikaw Nga" from the popular RnB boyband South Borders. Those songs were somewhat part of my college love life. And I really felt inspired listening to them.    

I'm so glad that I finally met in person one Friday night the band's lead vocalist Vince Alaras in Tambayan Sa Kanto's "Acoustic Night." That was his very first gig in the resto-bar which offers an all Filipino cuisine!        

I talked with Vince via a cool video. In our conversation, he shared some interesting things about himself. According to him, he was called by his barkada as "aspog" which means "Astig na Pogi!" And from that term, they derived the name of their band.

Vince also expressed his gratitude and experience performing in Tambayan. Here is our cool video:  



This Saturday night, May 18, 2013, Vince will have his second gig in Tambayan Sa Kanto. Expect to hear once again his team revitalizing their hit love songs! And of course, watch him performing his very own rendition of the classic love songs!

Tambayan Sa Kanto's Acoustic Nights happen every Friday and Saturday from 9pm to 2am. The resto-bar is located at the GF of The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

See you again Vince this Friday! (RCB)

One Soulful Night with Markki Stroem!



Me and the heartthrob crooner Markki Stroem already met many times now in different events. But two weeks ago, we had a special night with him!

Markki is featured in the 7TH High's "Soul Nite." In the said event, Markki performed his music which includes the songs he composed, his popular love songs, his cover versions, and his renditions of the current hits.    

Well, Markki is the only male acoustic artist who can truly give a new life to the songs originally performed by female singers. Some of these are Adele's "Rumor Has It," Rihanna's "Diamonds," and Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe."   

Just like we always do, we pose photos together:



But that night was different... We posed for the first time a wacky shot! And here how Rocky and Markki turned wacky:

Rocky and Wacky Turn Wacky!

I even brought my friends to Markki. And yes, they truly enjoyed the performance and humor of Markki in the stage! Markki didn't only sing, he even moved around and serenaded the audience! My two female friends were really "kotang-kota" with him!    

And of course, we posed a shot with the hot guy!



Markki performs every other Wednesday in the APEX Lounge of 7TH High in BGC. Then every Friday and Saturday night, he is in Bagaberde 101 resto-bar sharing his great lovely talent.   

If you want to know more about Markki, watch out my upcoming posts 'cause I will share with you my one-on-one interview videos with him! So stay tune!  

Markki truly rocks! (RCB)

Chris Cayzer's Cover Songs During His First 'Acoustic Night' in 'Tambayan Sa Kanto!'



The international heartthrob artist Chris Cayzer had his very first gig in "Tambayan Sa Kanto" in The Podium, Ortigas Center, Pasig City on the Friday night of April 12, 2013.

The event was dubbed as the "Acoustic Night" wherein Chris performed his versions of the different love songs from the 80's up to our present generation.  

Some of the songs that he performed during the night were were Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know,"  Bruno Mars' "Marry You," and Rihanna's "Diamonds."     

Here are my videos clips showing Chris performing his cover of the said songs. Let's all watch and listen to these:


"Somebody That I Used To Know"




"Marry You"




"Diamonds"




Chris got a standing ovation before and after performing "Somebody That I Used to Know." Then, he captured the hearts of many as he sang "Marry Me." And of course, he let us hear his own acoustic version of Rihanna's "Diamonds". And take note, he dedicated this song to me! He mentioned my name before singing it! :)

While getting inspire with his love songs, we at the same time were also enjoying the foods served by "Tambayan Sa Kanto." On the said night, we had the Baked Tilapia and Enpanada for dinner plus the crunchy home-made Turon for dessert. Definitely, our hearts and stomachs were satisfied both at the same time!    

"Tambayan Sa Kanto" is actually a resto-bar which serves all authentic Filipino cuisines of the different regions. It even offers an "Eat-All-You-Can" buffet promo during lunch and dinner for only Php399. And during Friday and Saturday nights, they serenade the audience with "Acoustic Nights" wherein different artists perform on the center stage.  

Tonight, April 19, 2013 performing in Tambayan's "Acoustic Night" is former South Border's member Vince Alaras. On Saturday, April 20, it's the acoustic princess Alijah Parcs. Then next Friday, April 26, Chris Cayzer returns back-to-back with Janjay Coquila on Saturday, April 27.

Chris Cayzer and Tambayan truly rocks! (RCB)
