Incendies, an import from Quebec, is one movie that grips your attention from the start and never lets go until the final harrowing minutes when the big AHA! moment unravels. Continue reading

ENGLISH CAFE: HEARTY LATTE AND THE SORCERER’S SANDWICH | THE PEASANT PALATE | Text by Hannah A. Papasin | Photos by Julius D. Mariveles

Their desserts were soooo cloying, I swear I could see ants donning their napkins in the table beside us while Kenny G music plays in the background. Yes, it was THAT cloying. Continue reading

And then there’s The Jonas Brothers movie. But I’m not talking about THAT kind of horror movie. I’m talking about the real deal, the kind that gives you … Continue reading
