Mango Tree Unveils New Look and New Dishes

Mango Tree in BGC
Global Thai brand Mango Tree has spruced up its look and it also introduces new dishes. One of the first ones to have significant design changes is its flagship restaurant. The new menu concept now appeals to both "purists"and "food adventurers" as the company eyes to cater to all foodies and diners. You might remember Mango Tree for their authentic and best tasting Pad Thai. Filipinos have a strong love for noodles. I am a noodle fan myself and I have always enjoyed Mango Tree's kway teow pad thai which is literally translated to "Thai-style stir-fried noodles."  Mango Tree has refashioned the interiors to create a cozy casual fine-dining feel. 

Now with 200-seating capacity, Mango Tree has a 20 seat solarium and 40 seat loft area that has been enclosed for private functions. Aside from that, it is now offering mouthwatering menu of healthy and authentic Thai cuisine from the four regions of Thailand. Unlike before, diners will not enter through the casual elegance of the solarium and see its posh bar which connects to the high-ceiling restaurant which offers a topiary feel. It also has a stunning show kitchen, wine room and semi-private booth seats. 

The refurbished restaurant still maintains an elegant aura while being just as inviting and approachable as the first time they opened. With the addition of plants and greenery, it offers a sense of escape and tropical tranquility. 

Mango Tree is now made more accessible to people--new look, new vibe, new dishes, and the whole experience. When a restaurant looks more fun and inviting, you're not scared to enter the place, would you? Indeed, the revamped Mango Tree is a more comfortable and relaxed haven that makes guests feel right at home. 

Now here's another piece of good news: It's not just the look of the restaurant that went through some exciting changes. Mango Tree also introduced new dishes to their menu.

Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. celebrates 10th Year Anniversary with Chinese Calligraphy and Art Painting Exhibit

Federation of Filipino Chinese Alumni Association Inc.

The history of Chinese painting can be compared to a symphony. The styles and traditions in figure, landscape, and bird-and-flower painting have formed themes that continue to blend to this day into a single piece of music. Painters through the ages have made up this “orchestra,” composing and performing many movements and variations within this tradition. 

A few days before the Chinese New Year, the Filipino-Chinese Community who call themselves as the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Alumni Association Inc. together with several group of artists, students and young professionals joined hands to organize an art exhibit featuring the rich culture and tradition of the Fil-Chinese.

In celebration of the Chinese New Year as well as the 10th year anniversary of the Fil-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc., the said special occasion has "Spring Festival Culture and Art Exhibition" as its theme. It was held at the ground floor of the Muelle de Binondo office of the said organization. 

Federation of Chinese-Filipino Chamber of Commerce and Industry officers, invited guests graced the said exhibit. The said Chinese art and calligraphy exhibit was made possible through the efforts of the organization headed by Mr. Reynaldo Ong de Jesus.

The said exhibit focused on observing nature combined with “poetic sentiment” to reinforce the expression of both subject and artist. The focus on poetic sentiment led to the combination of painting, poetry, and calligraphy.  Early Chinese Scholars thought that painting as an art had to go beyond just the “appearance of forms” in order to express the ideas and cultivation of the artist.

Simple Makeup Hacks and Basic Tutorials using Althea Korea Makeup Exclusives

Come along with me as I use Althea Korea’s Makeup Exclusives in my product review.

Step 1: Prime the skin

Purple Plum Fairy is still barefaced here, without any makeup

I prefer to use a primer that’s super lightweight. However, we need to acknowledge that everyone’s skin is different and I strongly recommend that you use whatever works best for your complexion. So I applied my usual moisturizer and waited about a few minutes for it to settle into my skin before going in with my foundation.

I started off by applying my foundation in swiping motions across my chin, cheeks, and forehead. I then followed them with a damp beauty sponge and blended until they appeared completely seamless.

Hotel Sogo Celebrates Silver Anniversary

I was recently invited to Hotel Sogo’s Media Thanksgiving and Appreciation Party held at the Eurotel Vivaldi Tower along EDSA in Cubao, Quezon City. It was my first time to come to the said building and I was amazed at how friendly and warmth the front desk officers were. I also liked the interiors of Eurotel which is also owned by the same company that owns and operates the Sogo Chain of Hotels.

 Like any typical Pinoy, I’m very much familiar with the brightly red, white and yellow colored buildings of Hotel Sogo. They’ve become a significant part in the lives of most Filipinos who in one way or another must’ve have stayed and celebrated their special moments and occasions at Hotel Sogo.

Hotel Sogo began in 1992 and it was a concept between two entrepreneurs who wanted to adopt a Japanese themed hotel that speaks cleanliness and innovation, efficacy, courtesy, discipline and hard work.  Ever since, Hotel Sogo has committed to deliver excellent service in an affordable and budget-friendly hotel. It has been 25 years since Hotel Sogo first opened their door to the public. They have grown into the most popular affordable hostel in the country today.

With 40 branches nationwide and counting, Hotel Sogo targets to open more in the next couple of years, eyeing around 60 branches across the country. They have also leveled up in terms of services aside from their facilities. They have introduced free Wi-Fi connections, waiters on skateboards (for faster service), safety deposit boxes, hot & cold shower, Jacuzzi (for VIP rooms), ample parking and even affordable in-room massage service.
