Araneta Coliseum's Le Grand Cirque Brings Back Memories of Christmas Past

Watching Le Grand Cirque at the Araneta Coliseum during the special show yesterday made me nostalgic about Christmas past at Araneta Center. I'm not sure if all you of remember Fiesta Carnival and the Holiday Season shows at the Araneta Coliseum like the Harlem Globe Trotters, circus, and other shows. And who still remember C.O.D. Department Store? I remember going there with my family and be part of the sea of people outside the store just after twilight to watch the much-awaited annual animated Christmas display? Take note that all of these were before Disney on Ice, Puregold, Shopwise, and Gateway Mall.

Amazing BTS of Le Grand Cirque

Watching a circus during a performance and watching it during the behind-the-scene practice is really worlds apart. You'll hear friendly banters and lots of laughter during practice and of course, there's just a handful of people around. Each performance is given about an hour to practice and there's really a whole lot of them. The Chinese Acrobats just finished their practice when I arrived so I missed their practice but was able to watch these 'flipping' guys practice. And its really cool to watch up close. They were really amazing during practice so am looking forward to watch them while they perform for a live audience.

Moviedate at SM Mall of Asia's newly opened Cinemas 7 & 8

I've been a Star Wars fan since I was a kid and it is always exciting to watch my favorite movie installment on the big screen. So when I got invited to the special screening of Rogue One, I can hardly refuse. It also coincided with the launch of SM Mall of Asia's Cinema 7 & 8.

Astro-Clock Astrology Timing Guide 2017 is Now Available

Dear Astro-Friends,

2017 is the year of Libra as Jupiter stays in this sign for the greater part of the year. In general, this is good year for the arts and the formation of relationships, whether on the personal or the mundane level. For me, this is the year is for going out and coming up with more projects to introduce real astrology to more Filipinos. The previous year has been a period of preparation.

2016 was a year of building foundations for me. Jupiter was at the lowest portion of my astrological chart. Partly brought about by necessity and partly by a conscious decision, I have to make the quantum leap from print to e-publishing. It was filled with setbacks but a learning process nonetheless. Circumstances also forced me to create more astrological guides, which was a good problem that I accepted. I have monthly bills for maintaining the e-store and the encryption service for the e-books. Chapters from Medieval Astro-Clock, my main work, have thus been expanded and are now in several books of its own. Transition periods are always daunting but the possibility of reaching more people outside of Metro Manila because of e-distribution far outweighs the trouble.

So, in 2017, we will have more astrology. I will release six e-books and will give more talks.

Festive Family Treats at Healthy Options

Festive family treats without the bad stuff
Noche Buena can just be as healthy as it is delicious
Christmas in the Philippines is like no other. With all the festive colors, bright lights, and jolly carols that play as early as September, it’s not surprising that Yuletide takes a different flavor in a country where the holiday lasts a season.
This is especially true about the food. Filipino Christmas is never complete without the scrumptious delicacies served throughout December, especially on Noche Buena.
Unfortunately, most of our Christmas delights aren’t exactly good for our health. If you truly want to show how much you care in this warmest of seasons, consider giving your loved ones the gift of health.
Good food that does good
Packaged snacks and condiments from the grocery often contain unwanted additives such as artificial flavoring, colors, and preservatives that could pose a risk to our health. Excessive amounts of salt, sugar, and fats further add sodium and calories to the already rich food we serve every Christmas.
Your holiday dinner shouldn’t cause worry, so choose food from organic and all-natural sources. That’s what you’ll find in Healthy Option’s Christmas catalogue featuring wholesome selections for a nutritious feast.
