Incubus in Post-Valentines Manila Concert

The much loved American rock band Incubus, whose return engagement to Manila has been eagerly awaited is performing February 17, 2018, Saturday, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. 

The band is known for its rock anthems Wish You Were Here, Megalomaniac, Anna Molly, Drive, Pardon Me, Are You In?, Nice To Know You, among others. 

The concert is produced by Ovation Productions, the group that also did Incubus’ previous concerts in Manila; the last was in 2015.

Since their formation in 1991, iconic multiplatinum Los Angeles rock band Incubus have consciously and continually shifted their perspective with each subsequent album, preserving the spirit that initially drove them and simultaneously challenging themselves as artists and human beings. Their eighth full-length, the aptly titled 8 [Island Records], proudly upholds that tradition for the quintet—Brandon Boyd [vocals], Mike Einziger [guitar, piano, backing vocals], José Pasillas II [drums], Chris Kilmore [turntables, keyboards], and Ben Kenney [bass].

“As a band, we’re collectively interested in challenging ourselves and hopefully finding new, innovative ways of writing music,” asserts Boyd. “That ethos has kept things interesting for us.”

In the fall of 2016, the five musicians regrouped to flesh out ideas, recording at Jim Henson Studios and at Einziger’s personal studio. As the vision came into focus during early 2017, Incubus added another level by enlisting the perspective of longtime friend Skrillex [Justin Bieber, A$AP Rocky, Lady Gaga] for co-production and mixing. Einziger had spent the past few years, exponentially expanding his personal musical palette. Not only did he oversee production for The Internet’s Feel Good and produce three songs for Tyler, The Creator’s chart-topping “Cherry Bomb,” but he also co-wrote Avicii’s six-times platinum smash “Wake Me Up” and served as musical director and performer for a much talked-about 2016 GRAMMY® Awards performance of “Where Are Ü Now” by Skrillex, Diplo, and Justin Bieber. After lunch one day, Einziger played Skrillex some mixes, and “a whole new world opened up” as the producer added his magic to 8.

“It evolved organically out of my friendship with Skrillex,” Einziger elaborates. “Incubus is all about friendship. We transferred the synergy of working together into what the band was doing. As we put the final touches on everything, Skrillex brought another level to the album.”

As a result, the eleven tracks comprising 8 assemble a mosaic reflective of the band’s current mindset. Unease translates to unpredictable guitar riffs that blur the lines between time signatures as cosmic rhythmic transmissions orbit around an epicenter of combustible emotion. Each lyric encodes a parable or what might be a hidden message. The first single “Nimble Bastard” leapfrogs from a rattling guitar snap into an anthemic refrain. “Loneliest” echoes with an existential rumination on solitude over an airy beat and hypnotic guitars. “Undefeated” struts along via a bombastic stomp before culminating on an uplifting chant, while the spacey “Familiar Faces” instantly enchants.

The soothing instrumental soundscape of “Make No Sound In The Digital Forest” illuminates their cinematic side with delicate chimes, simmering drums, and warbling tones. A dial-up modem signals the explosion of “Love In A Time of Surveillance” as the one-two punch of “No Fun” and “Throw Out The Map” tap into a tsunami of distortion and punk-y freedom. “Glitterbomb” represents the glorious push-and-pull of 8, teetering between heavenly harmony and a dramatic twinge.

8 arrives at a significant milestone for Incubus—releasing exactly 20 years since their major label debut S.C.I.E.N.C.E. landed back in 1997. A little older, a lot wiser, quite tighter, but equally ready to challenge themselves and rock music at large, Incubus change their perspective once more in 2017.

“All the time, I hear from fans that our music was the backdrop of their first experience with love or important in getting them through a hard time,” says Einziger. “That’s the highest compliment.”

“When we finished 8, we were flooded with this wave of gratitude,” Boyd leaves off. “The fact that so many people are willing to come on this weird ride with us is really humbling. We’re filled with this sense of awe around it. We’re very happy to share this record with everyone, and we hope they like it.” 

(Tickets to Incubus’ February 17, 2018 concert will go on sale starting November 21, 2017 via and regular Ticketnet outlets or call 911-5555. Ticket prices are P6905, 5905, 3905, 1905, 1005 plus service charge. Media partners are FOXlife, Monster RX 93.1, Philippine Star, and Business Mirror. Produced by Ovation Productions )

Giulia Takes Home-Cooked Food To A Whole New Level as It Opens at SM North EDSA

Looking for more relaxing place to satisfied your appetite and food craving?

From the company that introduced Casa Italia to Metro Manila in 2015, comes Giulia, the newest dining place that beckons anyone longing for home-cooked food.

I enjoyed a delicious lunch with blogger friends last Saturday, November 10 at Giulia located at G/F the Block, SM North EDSA.

Taking off from the same location where the renowned Casa left its footprint, Giulia is a full-service restaurant that whips up hearty dishes that linger way after you’ve finished everything on their plates.

While meeting and greetings with each other, we have offered something to refresh - I had Cappuccino in Piccolo.

For starters, you can choose from the ceasar salad, the pumpkin and the mushroom soup. Or you can sate your palates with their flavorful servings of Gambas Al Ajillo and Loaded Fries.

Sure to earn raves because of its size and flavor is the Legend- a big chunk of fried, boneless chicken which packs in just the right amount of spices.

They also have other meat dishes like the Braised Lamb Shank, Italian Beef Stew and Crispy Pork Belly.

There is also something to be had by pasta lovers at Giulia: there is the carbonara, creamy prawn, beef lasagna, spicy calamari, and bolognese.

For sharing, they have an assortment of pizza to choose from, including the four-cheese, the all meat and the chicken barbecue. 

They also have big plates good for a few hungry mouths- like the rib and chicken platter.

Then, for sweet endings, they have a premium gelato line which boasts of the most natural ingredients- like their best-selling flavors pistachio, dark truffle, mint and Bailey’s.

Jay Tan, Managing Director of Grupo Manna, which operates Giuia is excited to add another restaurant to his other two diners- Casa Italia and Gelatofix- both located at the Bonifacio Global City.

He exclaims: “Having Giulia here at SM North EDSA is the perfect opportunity for us to serve customers from this part of the Metro who crave for well-thought of dishes. With Giulia, we promise you a holistic experience of good food, enticing ambience and great service.”

*Giulia is open during mall hours and is located at the G/F the Block, SM North EDSA.

Fitness enthusiasts troop to Nuvali for Golden Fiesta’s ‘Heart Healthy Camp’ kickoff

Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp participants at Nuvali try out the Heart Pumps plyometric box jumps to improve their leg and lung power and increase heart rate to burn more calories and fat.
A tropical cyclone had come and gone, the sun was up bright and early, and for the Philippines’ leading cooking oil brand, Golden Fiesta, it was perfect weather for the special gathering of health enthusiasts, both incorrigible veterans and newbies in the fitness game.

The Heart Skips low hurdles at the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp improves leg power and agility, speeds up metabolism, and improves blood circulation to the heart.
Clad in their exercise gear, they all trooped to Solenad 1 in Nuvali, Laguna, last Saturday, November 11, some as early as 6 a.m., for Golden Fiesta’s Heart Healthy Camp—a fun-filled holistic fitness program designed to improve one’s overall body strength and conditioning. 

Their singular goal: to jump-start a heart-healthy lifestyle and be physically fit at any age.

The Elastic Heart fitness band at the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp aims to improve total body functional strength, build lean muscle mass, and push the heart to pump needed blood to function well.

Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp participants at Nuvali get to know their fitness status through the Golden Fiesta Karada Scan machines before warming up for various workout exercises and activities.
The Heart Waves battle ropes at the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp helps increase overall strength and total body conditioning and improves mobility and stability.
The sunny weather matched the high spirits of participants—some with their families or groups of friends in tow—as they kicked off the weekend on a high note. 

The organizers couldn’t have felt more gratified as Golden Fiesta successfully held the first leg of its Heart Healthy Camp. The free-admission fitness camp, after all, was warmly received by scores of fitness enthusiasts who quickly filled up the Solenad 1-Flex Lot and got the new fitness regimen going.

Nutritionist-dietician Fia Batua conducts “Heart Talk” and explains the benefits of using the heart-healthy Golden Fiesta Canola Oil in reducing the risk of heart disease.

Camp participants readily tried out an assortment of workout routines and activities that were categorized into beginner, intermediate, and advance levels that matched their varying fitness requirements.
Families bond over fun-filled workout activities during the kickoff leg of the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp at Nuvali last Nov. 11. 

Each station was manned by professional coaches and trainers to ensure that everyone was carrying out the exercises properly and safely. The workout activities included Pumps! Plyometric Box Jumps; Heart Skips! Low Hurdles; Heart Beats! Agility Ladders; Elastic Heart! Fitness Band; Heart Swing! Kettle Bells; and Heart Waves! Battle Ropes.

Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp participants at Nuvali try out the Heart Swing kettle bells, which improve the overall functional power and keep the heart rate elevated.

The morning was likewise made livelier by a Zumba session led by top Zumba and yoga instructor Karen Buenvenida.

The camp participants might have worked up quite an appetite after all the activities that they eagerly watched a live cooking demo—of recipes using heart-healthy Golden Fiesta Canola Oil—conducted by Pinoy celebrity chef Jose Sarasola. 

Sarasola showed the audience how to prepare simple, heart-healthy meals like Golden Fiesta Lettuce Salad with Guyabano Vinaigrette, Golden Fiesta Bangus Back Fillet and Adobo Kangkong Duo, and Golden Fiesta Japanese Chicken Katsu in Curry Sauce.

Celebrity chef and fitness buff Jose Sarasola holds a live cooking demo and food sampling of homey and hearty comfort meals made using the heart-healthy Golden Fiesta Canola Oil.

The cooking demo was followed by a food sampling, of course.

“To be healthy, you have to eat healthy, and part of that lifestyle is choosing the right kind of oil. There’s a misconception that all oils are unhealthy—that’s not the case with the heart-healthy and versatile Golden Fiesta Canola Oil, which is not only good for frying but also for making sauces and salad dressings. It does not take rocket science to learn and make healthy meals at home,” Sarasola said.
Celebrity chef Jose Sarasola uses quality NutriAsia products like Locally Blended Juice Drink Guyabano flavor and Golden Fiesta Canola Oil in preparing heart-healthy meals like the Golden Fiesta Lettuce Salad with Guyabano Vinaigrette. 

“To reach the goal that you want in life, you have to really work hard for it. And when it comes to achieving that healthy lifestyle and physically fit body, Golden Fiesta Canola Oil is there to aid you,” he added.

Golden Fiesta Canola Oil is a rich source of cholesterol-reducing phytosterols, an all-natural plant extract that can reduce your body’s cholesterol level by as much as 15 percent. Scientific studies and trials show that consumption of two grams of phytosterols per day has the potential of diminishing one’s risk of developing coronary heart disease.

Participants were encouraged to learn more health tips by engaging in “Heart Talks,” which was conducted by licensed nutritionist-nietician and fitness specialist Fia Batua.

“We Filipinos can’t say no to fried food, but the good news is Golden Fiesta is promoting simple changes that we can do on a daily basis to improve our overall health. We urge everyone to start these simple lifestyle changes in your kitchen,” Batua said.

“Canola oil is one of the best and most nutritious oils in the market—it’s even healthier and cheaper than olive oil,” she added. “Canola oil is rich in omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids that are very good for the heart. You can use it for baking, frying, and as dressing.” 

Celebrity chef Jose Sarasola poses for a group photo with Golden Fiesta and NutriAsia executives and fitness coaches during the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp kickoff at Nuvali.

According to Carl Constantino, category marketing manager at NutriAsia, the Golden Fiesta Heart Healthy Camp is the brand’s way of reaching out to Filipino consumers and encouraging them to be more mindful of their food choices and to maintain an active lifestyle despite tight schedules.

“We are very happy that residents of Laguna and nearby areas took this opportunity to learn and enjoy new fitness techniques from fitness experts and enthusiasts—all for free,” Constantino enthused.
