            Freeze summer in its tracks at the Imperial Ice Bar

            posted on by Little Bunny posted in What's hot and happening | Leave a comment  

            Manila is known for its scorching summers, but that’s not what attracts the tourists and locals to it in droves. No, what brings people to our shores is the fact that even in the middle of the sweltering heat, there’s always a cool spot to go to chill out.

            One such hideaway is the Imperial Ice Bar, the only club in the country where you can spend a short while freezing your extremities off in sub-zero conditions. I’ve heard of the place before and had wanted to go, but until about a week ago, didn’t really have a reason to. But just last week, I finally paid the hotspot a visit with fellow Philippine Network Bloggers Ted Claudio and Rafael Pekson to check out what the club goers are dubbing #thecoldestsummerever.

              71 Gramercy brings clubbing to new heights

              posted on by Little Bunny posted in noms and nibbles, What's hot and happening | Leave a comment  

              Last night my friends and I had drinks while tucked between seas of glittering lights – the clear night sky dotted with stars above, and the breathtaking blanket of Makati’s city lights below. We were at 71 Gramercy, one of the city’s newest and hottest lounge clubs.

              Situated at a phobia-inducing 70 stories above street level, the place not only offers a breathtaking view of the metropolis below, but also an excellent dinner menu. You can wine and dine and relax with friends and family while enjoying the feeling of being on top of the world for a few hours.

                Lopez Museum changes status to “It’s Complicated”

                posted on by Little Bunny posted in What's hot and happening | Leave a comment  

                Ever had an annoying ex who couldn’t take a hint and would insist on dragging you to Sunday “family” dinners? (Sama ka naman) Or that co-worker who was nice enough, but made you strangely uncomfortable? Life is full of the strange, and sometimes twisted, relationships we get into with other people, each one unique and at times utterly confusing.

                In a fitting nod to the times, The Lopez Museum and Library, in partnership with Tin-aw Art Gallery, launches It’s Complicated, the institution’s first exhibit for the year. Together with guest artists Mike Adrao, Leslie de Chavez, and Ea Torrado, the museum invites you to explore one of the most psychotic…er… complex relationships of all, the one between one-time colonizer and the people of the ex-colony.

                You really want to see this, trust me.
