Peachy, Thank you very much for inviting me to your Book launch…. I definitely found myself in your book and I am sure many mothers can relate to your book too.   What a loving idea to document this very important moment in a mother’s life.  It is a great act of love for a mother to write about this experience and to express ones love for their children.  Heart2Heart is really proud to feature you and your book.  Congratulations !!!

Bohol Bee Farm

By | Foodie, Travel | 2 Comments

1.jpg

I can’t believe we almost did not go here.  We were so happy at the resort and did not want to leave.  Never leave Bohol without stopping by the Bohol Bee Farm.   We met the owner, Vicky, through Yvonne.  Vicky has a nice quaint house in the farm and lives there too.  Love the place, the experience, the food and the products they make.

THE SHOP

DRY GOODS

FOOD PRODUCTS

THE RESTAURANT

Newly opened last October

FOOD

 We had a more private dining experience which Yvonne arranged for us.  You need to pay a little more but atleast it has aircon and we had the place to ourselves.  The food was organic! and very YUMMY!!! Buffet price (not using the private dining room -THE BARN):  P 400.00 for adults and P 200 for kids.

The RESTROOM

THE COTTAGES

They  have 13 cottages where you can stay in……

THE BEES

The place had a tour but due to time constraint we just did the bee farm tour.  They show you the plants and trees that they grow in the farm and have feeding of the rabbits if you have more time to spare.  The kids enjoyed tasting the honey!

A Gift of Theater

By | Arts and Culture | No Comments

From Heart2Heart’s friend, Rem Zamora, Actor and Marketing Director of Repertory Philippines.  Hope we can all support Philippine theater and talent. 

********************************************************

Repertory Philippines is proud to announce its shows for 2008!  Five plays never before staged in the Philippines and one Shakespeare masterpiece make up the roster for next year.

twm_main.jpg

January 1-27, 2008
 
Venue
OnStage
2/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City
 
Director
Baby Barredo

Synopsis  
  Based on Mitch Albom’s best selling book, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a heart-warming play that perfectly combines comedy, drama and poignancy. In a challenging commitment of time and expense, busy sportswriter Mitch Albom makes weekly treks from Detroit to Boston so he could spend Tuesday mornings with his former professor Morrie Schwartz, who is dying of Lou Gehrig’s disease. It unfolds the story of how these visits changed Mitch’s outlook on life. It is a feast for the mind and the heart.  
       
    Cast  
  Morrie Schwartz       Jose Mari Avellana  
  Mitch Albom       Bart Guingona

February 1-17, 2008
 
Venue
OnStage
2/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City
 
Director
Ana Bitong

Synopsis  
  “To be, or not to be: that is the question.”
– Probably the most famous speech in the English language from Shakespeare’s greatest masterpiece. Prince Hamlet attempts to seek revenge on his Uncle Claudius for poisoning his father, King of Denmark, and ascending to the throne. Hamlet exceeds by far most other tragedies of revenge in picturing the mingled sordidness and glory of the human condition. This is the first time Repertory Philippines takes on this dark tale of indecision, revenge and retribution, deception, ambition, loyalty and fate.

February 29 – March 16, 2008
 
Venue
OnStage
2/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City
 
Director
Miguel Faustman

Synopsis  
  A romantic comedy about two lonely neighbors in a Chicago apartment building. Throughout the play, Isabel Fox and Charles Norton contend with their own feelings and those of their parents (who have a budding romance of their own). All four characters use their knack for music and words as they nervously navigate the path of true love. Romance In D’ is about communication, exploring oneself and expressing feeling.  
       
    Cast  
  Isabel Fox      Ana Abad Santos – Bitong  
  Helen Norton      Pinky Marquez

Altar Boyz
April 4-27, 2008
 
Venue
OnStage
2/F Greenbelt 1, Ayala Center, Makati City
 
Director
Chari Arespacochaga
Synopsis  
  What if there was an openly Christian boy band? Winner of the 2005 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical, ALTAR BOYZ is the smash hit musical-satire about a heavenly guy-group on the rise to stardom. The self-anointed apostles of pop–Matthew, Mark, Luke, Juan, and Abraham take the audience to church with catchy melodies, freaky moves, and product in their hair. Altar Boyz is destined to rock the masses of all denominations! A crowd pleaser, for sure: a harmless, non-stop good time, perfect for kids and teens and adults.

Synopsis  
  An elaborate retelling of one of the most touching and enduring Christmas stories of all time. There are many adaptations of A Christmas Carol out there, but only one Broadway version! Based on the beloved Charles Dickens novel, A Christmas Carol, of course, tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a bad-tempered miser who learns the value of love and family after he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future. The inspiring, delightful tale and the engaging music are sure to prove to be a family favorite. Its message that there’s good in everyone is a timeless moral of hope, perfect for the Christmas season’s commitment to peace, joy, hope, and love.

Thanks again to Mike and Gloria for a great recommendation.  We were looking for a place to celebrate the birthdays of Dette and Brenda. Gloria highly recommended the STEAKS and that was what we enjoyed the most.

Wine Depot is a wine shop until you walk further inside to the end where they have a restaurant. 

We got to meet the chef and owner.

He explained the menu – that being he can cook anything in the board in any way we prefer.  Interesting! Though we just left it up to him to recommend as he should know best what he can do best.
