Complete List of Billers Who Are Delaying their Due Dates for 30 days

[uptdated as of March 21, 2020 | 10:55 am PST] Our billers are doing the Lord’s work to cushion the impact of the Covid-19 “Enhanced Community Quarantine”   for us by extending WHEN we can pay our bills.  Here is our collected/summarized list of utility companies, telecommunication, and a few banks offering later date or deferred payments for their customer’s billing cycle.

Note: A later date would mean an additional 30 calendar days of the additional cycle plus a list of Banks who haven’t made any announcements yet and those who are only giving “grace periods”.


Definition of Terms:

  • 30/60 Days Extension= a 30/60-days calendar payment extension from your due date.

  • Grace Period= Yes you can skip this cycle’s payment, but you’re expected to double the payment on your next round of billing given that they waived the late fee.

FRINGE 2020: The bold, the nude, and the taboo

FRINGE 2020: The bold, the nude, and the taboo

The Fringe Manila Festival enters the second half of its first decade, returning to fill some holes and bridge gaps in Metro Manila for its nearly 6-week-long run! Manila’s most diverse contemporary art festival has traditionally been the springboard for intergenerational local, international artists and collectives to premiere new works. With its artist-driven and un-curated design, the Fringe has mediated opportunities for artists and communities to gather together. It continues to encourage audiences to take a risk in supporting independent artists, as well as championing alternative and unconventional spaces as cultural centers – incubators, platforms, and stages – that develop the arts and cultivates its future.

Building off of the momentum of last year’s five-year milestone, the sixth edition of The Fringe Manila Festival program events and partners with venues from A (SPACE) to Z (Hostel). With tours, exhibitions, performances, and workshops throughout Philippine Arts Month, the Fringe is ready to fuel Metro Manila’s creative spirit. Fringe 2020 debuts with the Fringe Foreplay Program from February 8th to February 11th with Lagablab: Ang Improv Show na Puno ng Puso by Chopsuey Improv in Poblacion, Makati City; Somewhere Else Instead by Langgam Performance Troup at the Yuchengco Museum; KOMIKET, the Filipino Komiks and Art Market in Ortigas; Pineapple Lab’s Really Really Fringe Market featuring muralist Yoyojin from South Korea; and workshops at Fringe Manila Venue partner Commune, with a series of workshops and a performance by the Unsafe Space Show.

Fringe 2020 goes full force as it kicks off the festivities on February 12 with Opening Ceremony, the Fringe Manila opening night party and gathering at this year’s Fringe Club located at the rooftop of the Draper Start-Up House in the heart of Poblacion’s art district. Festival-goers can expect Fringe-fam regulars Burlesque PH, the Philippines’ premier burlesque troupe with their long-running cabaret show Bodabil. Also celebrating its sixth year participating at the Fringe is the hot-and-sometimes-bothered Deus Sex Machina with their entry, To Have and To Ho. 


“The Fringe is a playground for writers, actors, and artists to really experiment with their craft. That’s what we love most about being part of the festival: The creative freedom it allows us outside of our usual 9-to-5s,” says Marco Sumayao, one of DSM founding members. 


The Lopez Museum and Library join the festival with a series of free-to-the-public movie screenings at Pineapple Lab entitled Classic Filipino Cinema, through the Lopez Arts Initiative. These screenings will be taking classic Filipino films to another level with the deconstruction of notable titles that marked turning points in the Philippines’ film history. The Lopez Arts Initiative is bringing together aspects of storytelling, film restoration, and heritage in a casual, community-inspired platform. Human rights activist Rhadem Morados will launch a brand-new documentary entitled In Paglayag, a short documentary about the washed away the history of Sulu, the kingdom that birthed the Filipino Moro nation, and whose power gained influence even from China’s Ming Dynasty and other Asian empires in the 1400s. NightofWorship by House of Worship is a performance show featuring queer, offbeat, Filipino artists working in concrete and meaningful ways to address issues facing the LGBTQIA+ community. In Cubao, The Adlib Dance Studio (TADS) hosts yet another eclectic edition of Miss Joe’s Cabaret, while the House of Mizrahi PH, the first-ever voguing house in the country, performs as Fringe Festival virgins with their Sweet Valentine Ball

Valentines 2020: Where to EAT, Where to Go, and What to Do

Play your cards right this Valentines season as the Fat Girls Day Out shows you Where to EAT, Where to GO, and What to DO. A Curated Guide.

The Tapenade: A Solid Ensemble of Mediterranean Feast

The Tapenade: A Solid Ensemble of Mediterranean Feast

Tapenade is a Provençal name for a dish consisting of finely-chopped olives, capers, and anchovies. Here at Discovery Primea Tapenade is an all-day dining outlet that offers an authentic taste of the Mediterranean through a revamped menu presenting new and exciting signature dishes.




Guests exploring the restaurant’s new menu are also invited to revisit the Salad Room, enhanced to make guests’ dining experiences healthier and more enjoyable.  The spread features a fine selection of local and imported produce, charcuterie, cheeses, chilled seafood, composed salads, and playful sandwiches; available daily during lunch and dinner for PHP 988++ per person.  Price is subject to taxes and service charges.





Mozzarella & Friends

Fresh mozzarella served with a side of basil pesto, black olive tapenade, romesco dip, and fruit mostarda. Perfectly paired with pita slices. Our favorite is the fresh mozzarella and the romesco dip.




Prosciutto & Company

Served tableside, they slice the prosciutto only when you order and arrange the dish with an assortment of cantaloupe melon, fresh mango, and asparagus; all of which complement slices of prosciutto perfectly. It’s a nice combination of salty, sweet, and tangy.






Patatas Crunchy with Mojo Dip 

Deep-fried potatoes with mojo dip. This green aioli dip is refreshing zesty, with hints of garlic. It can be downright addicting.





Shrimps en Gambardina

Did you know that tempura originated from the Portuguese? Here at Tapenade, they serve Spanish-style tempura served with Guindilla aioli dip. The batter is thin and crisp, dip it into the aioli dip and it turns into an addicting snack. Each bite is full of flavor and is a great way to start the meal or as a snack.





Rigatoni al Sugo

Rigatoni pasta cooked with Italian guanciale, fennel sausage and smoked bacon with tomato sauce. A simple dish with familiar flavors that simply delights.




Wagyu Beef & Mushroom Paella

This was the crowd favorite with generous servings of pan-fried rice topped with luscious strips of premium Wagyu beef. Think of it as steak fried rice on steroids. The rice itself was fluffy, tasty, with deep notes of the mushroom and the socaratt that added texture. The steak was cooked medium just how I liked it.






 Roast Chicken & Chorizo Paella

This was quite surprising, the roast chicken topped on a be of chorizo cooked with green beans and rosemary. The chicken itself was full of flavor that went well with the chorizo.




The dessert menu presents delightful treats made with the freshest ingredients. Not to be missed are the restaurant’s new sweet endings;

Strawberry Crème Brûlée Cake

White chocolate custard, strawberry sphere, and champagne sugar crystals. It’s a light dessert that has a nice cream and tangy flavor.





Chocolate Tart

This chocolate tart was topped with olivo fleur de sel, chocolate truffle, and raspberry kisses. It is similar to Black forest cake but it’s a much deeper chocolate flavor.





Why Go?

Celebrate rich flavors of the Mediterranean at the Tapenade at Discovery Primera. The Salad Room is perhaps one of the most underrated tapas and cheese buffets in the Makati area. They have a solid spread of fresh seafood that you can have any way you want. A well-curated new ala carte menu that celebrates the rich, bold, and fresh flavors of the Mediterranean region focusing on perpetuating the taste and texture of seasonal, fresh ingredients that represent this bountiful region.
