In is The New Out

While we are not really sure if its going to be a deliberately wet month (hello climate change!), we can confirm that cloudy skies and rain showers will greet us several times this July. Thus, we highlight the joy of indoor discoveries that might suit your mood, whatever they may be.

Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater. Roman Polanski

Bonifacio High Street Cinema

Big screen, big sound, moving seats, scents, and mists: a 4DX theater like this will definitely amp up your movie experience. Who needs to be outdoors to feel the thrill? Now you know where to catch that next big action-thriller movie!

Fairview Terraces Cinema

It’s high time that Fairview denizens get to have a ‘fair-view’ in cinema: an upscale movie house that provides comfort and luxury plus a dash of neighborhood familiarity.

Hooray for 24 hour-movie theater! Now, catching the newest flick need not feel like a race especially on the opening day; just reserve your tickets online and go straight to the cinema. Here’s a tip: maybe you can start an after-cinema club since Republiq is a few steps away.


Food Coma

“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful! Mae West

Getting messy at the food table has never been this fun! Prepare your bare hands and dig into their best seller ‘seafood by the bag’ in Bag O’ Mama flavor otherwise, take your pick from their straightforward list of offered spices. Other ‘must-tries’ include shrimp popcorn, crispy calamari, and dynamite sticks.

Livestock Restaurant  (34 Jardin De Zanaida Compound, Sgt

Think you’ve had enough pork with your mom’s Nilaga and Mechado? Wait till you visit Livestock where they create dishes from a pig’s head to foot (and tail too!). Ever had pork’s wings (imagine pigs with wings), a Crispy Pata so soft you cut it using a popsicle stick? Just take our word of advice:  overindulge in meat at your own expense.

The Hungry Hound (32nd Street and 7th Ave., BGC)

Comfort food at this kind of weather? Yes please! Chicken, steaks, and pastas with a modern twist; that’s what you’ll find at The Hungry Hound. Personal favorites include Spiced Crispy Chiken, Shortloin Steak and no don’t start me with the heavenly Banoffee Trifle.


Banzai (Bldg J, SM by the Bay Leisure Park, MOA)

In a sea of Japanese-related status updates and IG posts, stand out with your own Japanese experience at Banzai. Aside from having all your favorite Japanese favorites (who doesn’t cry for teppanyaki and ramen these days?) in one place, another thing worth checking out here are their eye-pleasing chef performers. Trust us when we say to see is to believe it!
