HOW TO EXPERIENCE MANILA FOR A DAY (Series 2)

This experience guide is a mixture of the old and new. As we try to re-introduce Manila to you in a different angle.

FETE DE LA MUSIQUE 2019 Experience

FETE DE LA MUSIQUE 2019 Experience

For 25 years now, Fete de la Musique in Manila has been showcasing the best that the Philippine music scene has to offer. The Fête de la Musique began in Paris in 1982. This season, the summertime musical event will draw music lovers in over 300 European cities and over 540 cities worldwide.

2019 is a big year Fete de la Musique and the organizers are making sure that this year will be a special one.

AN EXPERIENCE WORTH SHARING

 

I remember attending my first Fête de la Musique event back in  2005 I was in my senior year in college and the OPM scene was rising yet again. We wanted to see all our local favourite bands in a centralized venue for free. We dressed up, waited a few hours in El Pueblo Ortigas to witness the event. The crowd, from all walks of life, gathered in each pocket channel for the sole love for music. It was such an experience that I have to do it annually as a pilgrimage. It has been more than 10 years since that time and whenever I meet new people as I get older, I will always introduce them to Fête de la Musique festival.

9 main stages and over 50 pocket events covering all genres in music peppered across the following centralized venues.

What’s New for 2019

For its 2019 edition, Fête de la Musique will continue its tradition of producing several main stages across Metro Manila and in six other cities all over the country, which will offer a variety of music styles. With the addition of over 50 pocket stages that will host different music genres, #FetePH25 will indeed offer music for everyone.

Music Heals: Fete de la Musique Pop Up, which highlights the power of music. Together with nurse-rapper Fatima Palma-Loo and other artists, Fete de La Musique will be doing a pop-up show on June 8 to inspire, heal, and give hope to the children of the Virline Foundation in Makati City.

On June 15, three Pre-Fete de la Musique parties will simultaneously take place to kick-off the anniversary celebrations. There will be the Sunset Collective Stage at the KMC Skydeck BGC, the Rockeoke Stage at the Salon de Ning in the Peninsula, and the SX Manila Stage at the Rizal Open-Air Auditorium.

A 25 minute- performance on June 21 at the A-venue main stage. The multi-genre medley, led by Francis De Veyra will feature Bituin Escalante, Aia de Leon, Cooky Chua, Bayang Barrios, Tarsius, and many more.

There will also be a special All-Female French-Filipino Medley on June 29th at the Intramuros main stage, led by Pinay musician Radha, and in collaboration with Vanessa Monot, Fatima Palma-Loo and more.

To cap off the anniversary festivities with a bang, DocDef and Gabi Na Naman Productions will hold a closing party on June 29th at 20:20, La Fuerza Plaza 1 Chino Roces Avenue, Makati.

WHY GO?

What I love about this event is how they give importance to different music genres, it’s a buffet to your audible sensories. It is a portfolio of the best Filipino music has to offer from OPM legends, mainstream bands, independent artists trying to get into the scene, weird-electronic enables to downright world music beat creators.

 

fat girls day out-fete

 

Personally, I forego going to the main stage as it tends to be more mainstream and too much waiting time. If you’re a FETE DE LA MUSIQUE virgin and your cherry needs to be popped properly by experiencing their pocket stages.

FEW POINTERS TO REMEMBER:

  1. Pre-select stage venues you will go. If you’re bringing a car better park somewhere safe and just transfer to each pocket venues either by walking or taking a short cab/jeepney ride.
  2. Bring water as it could get really humid and hot due to the influx of people
  3. Last 2017-2019 most of the crowd was over at the Indie Stage. So if you’re planning to go there make sure to come early.
  4. Wear light and comfortable clothing. Again it could get really hot and humid.
  5. Immerse, Enjoy!

If you haven’t been to any Fête de la Musique event then you should go at least once. You can never go wrong with music and engagement.

As we always say, go forth and wander! Be a storyteller of your experience.

Where to To Take Your Dad This Father’s Day

Where to To Take Your Dad This Father’s Day

A few days left before June 16th!  Where will you celebrate Father’s Day? A few may say that mandatory celebration like is just a big marketing hoax to get you to spend and be lured in as a consumer. Well, partly YES. Same with Valentine’s day right? or any life celebrations for that matter. We, Pinoys are sappy sentimental like that and we are more empathetic, celebratory, and sentimental by culture. We grew up that way and we shouldn’t feel sorry for it. Besides, Father’s Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards fathers.

 

fat girls day out-fathers day

 

Most don’t have any clue just yet where to take our precious dads so we the Fat Girls Day Out crew listed our top 5 recommendations on where to take our Tatay this coming Sunday!

 

 

 

 

 

All beef needs to be aged to allow the natural enzymatic process to tenderize the meat. They are currently two ways to do it: dry ageing and wet ageing. Wet ageing allows the meat to tenderize for 7-14 days, any longer and it gets this metallic flavour that is unpleasant to the mouth. For dry ageing, full enzymatic tenderization takes about 28 days to complete. They do this by keeping the beef in a temperature controlled room for a certain amount of days.

 

 

What to Get

 

Where in Makati can you go to get hearty, authentic Swiss food? Not to mention a place that is also open 24 hours round the clock for 7 days delivering the same level of consistency for the past  70 years?  With this special feature, we want to give homage to the famous and the original Swiss-European restaurant, The Old Swiss Inn.

 

 

What to Get

 

fathers day 2019
Butcher’s Board: Angus Ribeye Steak, Lamb, Sausages, and Bacon.

If you want a unique dining experience and the restaurant’s character itself is a conversation topic.  Their price for their hot dishes (to share) is a little steep, but the serving portions are huge which is perfect for large groups. Long Time Ago stays true to the Szechuan lineage of crafting each dish by using authentic core ingredients.
