Live Happy, Stay Healthy with LG

Your home is more than just four walls and a roof—it is a living space, a sanctuary for resting and restoring the mind, a place for peace with your loved ones. But sometimes modern life has other ideas, filling up our precious time with endless chores. In between making sure our rooms are dust-free, seeing to it that the fridge is well-stocked with fresh produce, and trying to cook healthy food for our families to consume, most of us don’t really get to enjoy home as a space for optimal rest and relaxation.  

Good thing, innovative technology is slowly beginning to invade every corner of our residences, providing time-saving, user-friendly devices that are meeting the needs of consumers rather than simply serving as the latest techie gadgets. Home appliances are constantly evolving into nifty, consumer-centric machines that make our lives easier—and our homes considerably cleaner. From vacuuming to clearing the air of pollutants to helping you cook in the most efficient way, these intelligent gadgets allow you to automate time-consuming actions, freeing up time so you can do the things you really enjoy.

Traveling Filipino chef serves the flavors of home one pop-up dinner at a time

Globe-trotting Filipino chef Yana Gilbuena furthers her advocacy of spreading the flavors of the Philippines to the world with her SALO Series pop-up dinners, serving delectable Filipino dishes using well-loved Filipino condiments.

Thousands of miles away from her home in the Philippines, an Iloilo-born chef with no formal culinary training has taken it upon herself to promote Filipino cuisine to the world. 

Driven by a desire to spread the flavors of the Philippines, Chef Yana Gilbuena established the SALO Series, kamayan-style dining pop-up dinners that has travelled the 50 states of America. “Kamayan” is Filipino for dining with your bare hands, and Gilbuena’s goal is to serve delectable Filipino dishes to Filipino-Americans, Asians, and practically anyone else who eats.

SALO is culled from the Filipino word “salu-salo,” which refers to a banquet where partakers are encouraged to eat with their bare hands food spread over banana leaves. For Chef Gilbuena, SALO is an “educational, humbling, and communal” experience.

Martell Cognac: A symphony for the senses

Cognac tends to be typified as something taken neat or on the rocks, something that doesn’t play well with other flavors- and therefore only taken as an endnote to a meal. 

What if we told you that this kind of thinking is very wrong indeed?

Complexity of taste 
Here’s the thing: distinguished and refined does not automatically mean singularity and puritanical. Cognac is an exceptional spirit, known for its elegant, balanced, and refined taste. It has long been the liquor of choice of those with discerning palates. 

Discovery supports sustainable food sourcing.

The Discovery Leisure Company, Inc., the homegrown hospitality group behind luxury properties Discovery Primea, Discovery Suites, Discovery Shores Boracay, Club Paradise Palawan, and Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay joined the recent Sustainable Seafood Week held at the Marriot Manila Grand Ballroom. 

With the theme “Inspiring Solutions for Change,” the Sustainable Seafood Week aims to serve as an open and dynamic platform in discussing the challenges that the local seafood industry is facing to ensure a sustainable future.
