Tambayan Sa Kanto Gives New Taste to Our All-Time Favorite Street Foods!

When we say Filipino foods, the so-called street foods which already became Pinoy's all-time favorite may also flash on our minds. Barbeque, fishballs, kwek-kwek, betamax, and other goodies were some of the instances which already comprised the Filipino culture.   

It's good to know that Tambayan Sa Kanto or TSK or simply Sa Kanto, a classy Filipino restaurant located in the heart of The Podium which serves different Pinoy cuisines from the different region of the country gives a brand new connotation to these 'street foods.'

During our bloggers' night one rainy Saturday for "Fun with Philip" where we conducted the event in this place, TSK served us different Pinoy signature dishes. We had the grilled lobster, crispy bagnet, coconut crushed fish fillet, empanada with Ilocano vinegar, and ensaladang pusit to name few. But what surprised us on that food-fulled rainy night were the all-time favorite Pinoy street foods which came with brand new goodness! 

TSK have their very own versions of pork barbeque, fish balls, and turon. Well these three Pinoy goodies sound ordinary. But when you taste them, you can say that you already tasted three of the best foods in the Philippines!

For some, turon is just a plain banana wrapped in pambalot ng lumpia. But TSK put a new twist in this favorite Pinoy dessert - they partnered it with langka sauce making it a world-class sweet dessert!

Well, check out some of the yummy photos of the foods Sa Kanto served to us during our event: 

An All-Time Favorite Pork Barbeque

The Best-Selling Street Food Fish Ball

TSK's Spicy Talong

Kanto's Very Own Lemon Salad Dressing

Sweet Turon with Langka Sauce

The Appetizer Empanada with Ilocano Spiced Vinegar

"Pictures pa lang, ang sarap na!" I know you are already craving while reading this post. :)

Talong or eggplant is not my favorite vegetable. I'd rathet eat okra than talong! But when Sa Kanto served us their version of spicy talong in small stick for pica-pica, my view on this vegetable eventually changed!  

Salad and squid are two of my favorite foods. What if these two things were put together into one great dish?! Yeah, TSK made that via their very own Ensaladang Crispy Squid with TSK Salad Dressing! Awesome! It pulled me to have my second round! Haha! 

"Nagugutom ka na ba?!" You want more?! Well, check out more great foods served to us on that rainy bloggers' night below:

The Grilled Lobster with Lemon Sauce

The Coconut Crusted Fish Fillet

With great foods served to their customers and with the very nice ambiance of the place, I admit, Tambayan Sa Kanto is really my favorite restaurant! I've been in this place since last year. And because I'm too very busy with the different commitments, I wasn't able to visit this place for many months. But when opportunity came (this Fun with Philip Bloggers' Night), I strongly recommended this restaurant to sir Philip Abadicio as the venue for our event! And Philip, the staffs of the show, and my blogger friends exceeded their expectation for this restaurant! All of us went home happy and full! :)     

 Remember this logo of the best restaurant in town which serves all our favorite Filipino cuisine:

Marion Aunor Narrates the Story of Feeling Inlove and Brokenhearted in Her Songs!

  
Love really makes every person inspire to be creative. Whenever we fall inlove, we are inspire to sing, to write a song, or even compose a poetic article to narrate the feeling we were experiencing. Or the other hand, if we are brokenhearted, we are getting emotional keeping us to write or release the feeling of bitterness in many other ways. Well in my case, I experienced those two things pertaining to love!

In case of Ms. Marion Aunor, the "Himig Handog P-Pop Love Songs" third-place winner, she can write her own song both when inlove and when brokenhearted! I've asked her if what is easier for her to write a song, when inlove or when brokenhearted. Her answer was both! That's why in her self-titled album, two songs there pertained to the opposite feelings of love. Her carrier single called "If You Ever Changed Your Mind" which paved way for her to win in the competition is all about heartaches for the brokenhearted persons. On the other hand, her song "Take a Chance" tells the story of falling inlove! She gave samples by singing these songs during her bloggers conference in ABS-CBN's ELJCC building.   



Yes, Marion sings very well! "Ang lamig at ang ganda ng boses." Her voice is really perfect in any occasion. And good to know that she's already the newest addition to the Star Magic family! "I'm happy that I get to work with artists from Star Magic. I'm looking forward to be doing concerts with them too,"  the singer expressed.

When I asked Marion if who is her favorite international artist whom she wants to do a collaborative song with, she said Jason Mraz.

Here is a video clip of my interview with Marion during the blogcon:



And here is Marion giving us a sample of her song "Take a Chance:"



By the way, Marion Aunor is the niece of the superstar Ms. Nora Aunor. Wow, a blood of talented artist is really flowing on her!

With her looks and talents, definitely Marion is a big thing in showbiz! Aside from singing, no doubt to see her soon in movies, TV series, or even in different product endorsements!

Congrats Marion and more power! Two thumbs up to your talents! (RCB)

Why Kim Chiu and Xian Lim's Tandem (KimXi) is the Hottest in Philippine Showbiz?!



The loveteam of Kim Chiu and Xian Lim popularly known as KimXi is undeniably the hottest loveteam today in Philippine showbiz! Their tandem in TV series or in movies were really top-rating and blockbusters! Even in the text votes or online poll surveys, KimXi is always the winner! Well, what do you think is the reason why their loveteam is very successful and emerge as the hottest?!

During the Bloggers Conference of their upcoming romance-comedy film "Bride for Rent,"  I've asked Kim and Xian about the 'secret' of their loveteam success! According to them, the best key is their fans and supporters!

Yes, because of the undying supports of their fans, KimXi emerged on top! They were one of the reasons why their loveteam is always trending in the social media, why they always won on different polls, why their different TV series were successful and top-rating, and why their films were blockbusters! 

Because of their fans, KimXi will not exist! Therefore Kim and Xian were very thankful to them! They appreciate the sacrifices and hardships the fans underwent just to show support to their idols. Here is the video of Kim and Xian during the blogcon where they expressed their thanks and appreciations to their fans:



Aside from their fans, for me, I think the other reason why the Kim-Xian tandem sells like a hot cake is their chemistry and Asian looks! Since Kim and Xian are both Chinese or should I say both chinito  and chinita, they look good and perfect together! Putting them together in one TV show or movie seems like watching your favorite Koreanovela or Asianovela! And yes, they were also a perfect recipe to a romance-comedy genre of movie or TV series! That's the reason why "My Binondo Girl," "Ina Kapatid Anak,"  and "Bakit Hindi Ka Crush ng Crush Mo?" were very much successful!

Under the direction of Ms. Mae Czarina Cruz, "Bride for Rent" is set to hit the theaters this Wednesday, January 15, 2014.

What other things do you know made KimXi a very successful loveteam in this present generation?! (RCB)

My Interview with Thai Heartthrob Mario Maurer!


Two months ago, I was able to talk and interview the Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer during the promo of his very first Filipino movie, "Suddenly It's Magic" pairing him with the young actress Erich Gonzales.  

The first time that I talked with Mario was during the Media Conference of their movie. But during that time, he was in Thailand so the interviewed was conducted via Skype. Then the second time that I talked with him was during the grand presscon of his movie where he arrived in the country to promote their movie.

Here is a portion of my interview with Mario during the said Media Conference:



Meeting this one of the hottest international stars Mario Maurer is one of the highlights of my 2012 achievement. One of the things I should thank for this year! 

Looking forward to see again Mario soon! (RCB)
