The world of Poker at Solaire.




SOLAIRE Resort and Casino introduce to us last Oct 9 the world of playing Poker during the #World Poker Tour Blogger’s Night.  This is in preparation for the Casino’s hosting of #WPT starting this Oct 16 up to 28, 2014. Wherein Top Pro’s and A-List celebrities from around the globe are expected to sit and try their luck to this famous card game of this generation.

During the event, Ron Regis a Professional Poker Coach brief us some technics and easy way to win in poker, he also discusses how he embrace this kind of sport from a hobby to a career now, he emphasize that it takes talent or skills in order to excel on this game.  But the most remarkable talk that night is coming from Mark Aventajado whose credentials are way up and consider  as the father of Poker Tournament  in the Philippines, he stress that the best about poker is the competitiveness and of course the fun and excitement that you will get.

Vic De Guzman.
Another speaker that evening is Vic De Guzman, a top pros Poker player in the country whose winning records either here and in abroad is unparalleled, he point out that Filipinos are the most creative players in playing poker, and he declare it’s the ultimate sports that Filipinos should embrace because this is the only sports that no height or weight is required.

After all those talks, our group is divided into three and given a table at the poker room of Solaire.  Each dealings of cards is a learning yet thrilling experience, the coaching from the professional players really helps and made me understand that it is really a sport and not a sort of gambling thing that will burn all your hard earn money in a snap of your fingers.  A discipline and a right attitude with of course the good guidance and the right style of playing with creativity is a sure formula to conquer the world of Poker.

Unfortunately I have to leave early and leave my winning chips to my assign group after the third round. But the memories of playing Poker in Solaire I must say is extraordinary and a chance of a lifetime. We’ll never know when these will happen again.

Poker is a great and entertaining game to play at casinos. I just don't want to gamble with real money haha. We play with playing coins at home.
Sadly I'm not that big into Poker.

I don't play much poker, but that's mainly because I suck at it. I could totally use a class like this.
I enjoy playing poker we play at home with friends for fun. I have never played at the casino.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
