Luis Manzano Joins Chef Erns Gala in “Galastars Culinary Kitchen”


Luis Manzano considers himself a foodie or someone who goes out of his way to seek new food experiences.

 

In fact, not too many may be aware of it but the sought-after TV host holds a degree in hotel and restaurant management from De La Salle University, College of St. Benilde. Luis said that his pursuit of the degree exposed him a lot to the kitchen. So, when an opportunity to guest in celebrated chef Ernest "Erns" Gala for GalaStars Culinary's Celebrity Series came along, he did not hesitate and jumped at the chance right away.

 

GalaStars' Celebrity Series are special webisodes produced by Chef Erns in which popular personalities are seen learning or sharing their favorite recipes online.

 

GalaStars Culinary provides state of the art equipment with separate lecture and demonstration rooms. They have a modern and high-end kitchen laboratory providing 100% hands-on training. Each workstation can accommodate two students and features a sink, prep table, a high-powered stove, oven, deep fryer and exhaust hood. All instructors are fully certified Chefs and highly respected in the culinary industry.

 

"This feels like a homecoming for me because I was always inside a kitchen when I was still studying hotel and restaurant management. It has been a while since I get to hold pots, pans, utensils," Luis confessed.

 

Luis is thrilled to be mentored by Chef Erns, son of renowned culinary legend Sylvia Reynoso-Gala.

 

"Learning from the best whose culinary skills and that of his family cannot be questioned is an enlightening and one big learning experience for me," he enthused.

 

Under the guidance of Chef Erns and his kitchen crew, Luis was able to whip up a crown roast and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, which he admits are just two of his favorite food indulgences.

 

But he also expects to learn more from Chef Erns particularly how to properly prepare one of the family's favorite dishes.

 

"Salpicao Pasta is a personal favorite of my mom, my brother and my Tito Ralph. I tried cooking it several times but there were a few hits and misses so hopefully through Chef Erns I will finally get to do it properly," Luis mused.

 

As a foodie who always yearns for new and exciting food adventures, Luis further revealed that the one dish he always looks forward to is the Meal-in-One preparation of her own mother, celebrated acting legend and Star for All Seasons, Vilma Santos.

 

"It's basically pasta dish made with corned beef, cream of mushroom soup, corn and lots of cheese on top. It's one of those never fail pasta dishes that has the best of all worlds. From the noodles to the saltiness of the corned beef, it has become my go-to dish not just for special occasions like Christmas but also for simple get-together affairs with my barkada," Luis confessed.

 

"I'm not sure if it's her original recipe or it's something that she read somewhere that she later modified a bit. But it's a hit with me and just about everyone who tried. I haven't met anyone who did not like my mom's Meal-in-One."

 

Although he has his own personal favorites like steak, beef burrito, pizza, cheesecake and raw mango with bagoong, Luis added that he's always open to trying new dishes and making them himself.

 

With the help of Chef Erns, Luis will not only concoct palatable dishes for his own personal enjoyment but is also looking forward to possible business opportunities in the food industry.

 

"This is just the start of a long-term partnership with my friend Chef Erns and I look forward to learning more from him."

 

GalaStars Culinary is located at 179 Shaw Blvd., Pasig City. More information can be found on www.galastarsculinary.com.

OPPO fully supports the Miss Possibilities Foundation in its aim to raise awareness for equal treatment. One of their strong advocacies is to end the use of the “R” word due to its defamatory and unethical meaning.

With its core theme “Beauty Knows No Boundaries”, it also featured the overwhelming support of influential celebrities who joined the special fashion show with children from the special needs community in their French themed outfits.

OPPO Philippines supported all pageant contestants by giving them their own smartphones to enable them to capture moments and share their experiences online as they too, have the equal opportunity to explore and experience the social media world.

We fully support the advocacy of Miss Possibilities Foundation in giving people with special needs equal treatment in society today. The aim of ending the use of the “R” word is very admirable and should be encouraged as this is a start to having a better future for our society,” said OPPO Philippines’ PR Manager Eason de Guzman.

Vivo Philippines Sealed its Position as the Top Mobile Phone Industry with a $4-Billion Partnership with Qualcomm


Vivo, a young leading global smartphone brand, has been making waves in the country since it first hit Philippine market in March 29, 2016. Since its entry into the local scene, the topnotch brand has vied with other strong phone brands and has proven its developing dominion amongst Filipino smart phone enthusiasts. Just September this year, Vivo launched the revolutionary V7+. 

The V7+ instantly proved itself to be an instant hit and the best accessory for any young, hip, and out-and- about individual in the country. Known as a selfie-centric phone, the V7+ perfects all shots for clearer selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera - an industry-first - with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. Impressive enough, in just a span of less than two years, Vivo has found a well-deserved spot in a highly-competitive global arena of mobile smart phones both locally and abroad because of its innovative line of phones that are easy on the pocket.

 


To maintain Vivo’s top position in the technology and mobile phone arena, the smart phone brand and
one of Qualcomm's key partners, has signed a memorandum of understanding worth 4 billion U.S. dollars with Qualcomm last November 9. The said memorandum strengthened Vivo and Qualcomm's technical partnership and patent sharing and will ensure that Vivo’s position on top in the smart phone industry will maintain its momentum. With the help of Qualcomm's optimized platforms, Vivo aims to stay faithful to its commitment of delivering innovative and technologies that are at the forefront in mobile photography, gaming, smart power saving, and many more. With the ever changing and evolving technology in the realm of communications, Vivo is also working with Qualcomm on research and development in the biometrics space with the introduction of Vivo Under Display fingerprint scanning solution based on Qualcomm fingerprint sensors at the Mobile World Congress in July this year. This said innovative solution did not disappoint and as such, Vivo plans to continuously work on other technologies, particularly 3D facial identification, palm prints, fingerprints, iris scanning and other biometric technologies, to improve the ease-of- use and security of mobile phone biometrics.

Moreover, with the emergence of 5G, Vivo is looking closely into the significance of human-computer interaction in the 21 st century world and has planned a series of collaborative initiatives to accelerate the formulation of 5G standards. In terms of the 5G SoC (System on Chip), Vivo will also share its many years of consumer market experience with Qualcomm to provide consumers with a better and more customized user experience.

Vivo has always heavily competed to stay as the leader in technology application and consumer insights. In order to fulfill this goal and its ambition to stay at the forefront of technology by working

Last Five Chance to See "Matilda" at the Meralco Theater


Even if you’re little, you can do a lot” says a line in Naughty which is probably the most popular song from the well-loved and award – winning musical Matilda. This says much about Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group’s latest offering as it stages for the first time in the Philippines Roald Dahl’s classic story about Matilda – an amazing little girl with extraordinary intelligence and psychokinetic powers.

Now on its final weekend from December 8 – 10 at the Meralco Theater, this musical shows how little Matilda and her friends fought against the injustices of childhood with their wit, bravery and by being a little bit naughty.

Since its opening performance last November 10 at the Meralco Theater, Matilda the Musical has been highly-acclaimed by theater-goers both young and old making it one of the best theater events this season. Headlining this wonderful musical treat dubbed by Jovic Yee in an article as “the future of Philippine theater”, are three equally talented and brilliant Matildas – Esang de Torres, Felicity Kyle Napuli and Uma Naomi Martin.
 
From the outstanding performances of theater veterans and the amazing young actors who played Crunchem Hall’s revolting children to its masterfully crafted set design this musical is certainly a delightful production.  “There was not a moment that there was no anticipation, not a second that there was no excitement, not a blip where there was no engagement between audience and production”, says theater critic Sujata S. Mukhi. Another theater critic and online editor Vladimir Bunoan, described the musical as one that should easily appeal to the Harry Potter crowd with its dark and magical themes, empowered characters and imaginative visuals. Atlantis’ staging of this Dahl classic is one that captured the hearts of its audience – a powerful representation of an innocent story with a poignant charm that knows no age.

There will be no re-runs so catch Matilda The Musical on its final weekend from December 8 – 10 at the Meralco Theater. Tickets are available at Ticketworld (call 891-9999 or visit www.ticketworld.com.ph).
