Repertory Philippines stages a Victorian sex comedy The Vibrator Play starting March 24


Catch Repertory Philippines, more popularly known as REP, anticipated staging of In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play on March 24 to April 23 at the Onstage Theater in Greenbelt 1 Makati City.

The provocative and brilliant comedy about the vibrator, written by multi-awarded playwright Sarah Ruhl, gets you laughing and leaves you moved with genuine emotion, too. At the time when electricity was just discovered, the newly invented electronic vibrator was used to induce orgasms – then called “paroxysms” – to relieve men and women of their so-called hysterical tendencies.

REP’s The Vibrator Play stars Joshua Spafford, the acclaimed actor who on the theater company’s 50th anniversary has #ComeHometoREP. He plays Dr. Givings who specializes in gynecological and hysterical disorders, and treats his patients in his ‘operating theater,’ in other words his home clinic which is right next to their living room.

Giannina Ocampo plays opposite Joshua as Catherine Givings, the good doctor’s unhappy wife who has been neglected for so long, especially in their marital bed. She listens curiously to the sounds and cries coming from the patients with absolutely no idea of what goes on in the next room. When Dr. Givings refuses to administer the treatment on her, Catherine takes matters into her own hands.

Minola Premium Cooking Oil: Good for the Heart


Minola Lauric Cooking Oil is one of the leading and most trusted brand in the country for the past 50 years. Yes, it's a brand that my great, great grandmother have been using in the kitchen for years, and probably a legacy that has been passed on from one generation to another. What was their secret in making them the best kitchen partner of most Filipino moms? 

Minola Cooking Oil is made of coconut oil that is minolauric, which means it has full of lauric oil. According to the Philippine Coconut Authority, "Coconut oil is the most readily digested of all the fats of general use in the world." Minola is a Philippine brand of refined, bleached and deodorized coconut oil.  As the package says, “Solidification of coconut oil at a certain temperature is its natural characteristic and does not affect the quality.”  What is important is that this oil does not coat arterial linings in the same way that animal fats do.  

What is it about Minola oil that makes it the best-selling brand in the market? Here are the essential points of coconut oil:

“Research shows that coconut oil:
  • contains Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) which provide energy and do not accumulate or deposit in the body tissue.
  • is trans fat free, a natural product that does not contain hydrogenated fats.
  • is a lauric oil and when absorbed by the body becomes monolaurin which is known to have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.  Monolaurin is also found in mother’s milk.
  • promotes good health and helps build a stronger immune system.”
Refining removes the impurities, bleaching removes much of the yellow color and deodorizing removes the burnt odor of sun-dried coconuts.  Thorough refining, bleaching and deodorizing would thus produce a slightly yellow and odorless oil, such as Minola Lauric Oil.

Using Minola Cooking Oil is not only a healthy alternative but it is also budget friendly that won't put a hole into your pockets. No wonder, Minola Lauric Cooking Oil is the brand of choice for many Filipinos then and now!
