A taste of Cambodia

My recent travel to the Kingdom of Wonders is also filled of mouthwatering adventures, foods, delicacy, spices, flavors and exotic taste galore. Let me take you to some of their to die food, cook in Cambodian way.
CHARMAN CHICKEN. What I can remember is the taste of ginger all over it, but it comes with a soothing flavors that is good for the throat. it is usually serve in many eateries or small resto in Siem Reap. 
LOKLAN. This pork delicacy is the most common one in all Cambodian resto, the tender of the meat with fresh tomato taste is a winner for a hungry stomach. 
DEEP FRIED QUAILS. This is one of the favorite of many in Sovanna, a fast rising Khmer Restuarant in Phnom Penh. Its delicious but not that crispy,  and flavorful too.
From Up Left is CHAR BON LIER, Its chicken sauted in many spices like ginger and mix vegetables, I can taste some seasoning on it. next is PROMA, a scrambled egg with pork meat and mix veggies stuffed inside. Below from left is CHAR MONN, a sort of chopsuey alike food mix with meat and seafoods. SOUR CHICKEN SOUP is loaded with many herbs and spices cooked with Chicken meat, the soup is also soothing and very minty. 
An organic WORM, Small kind of Cockroach type bug and SCORPIONS, all in very spicy taste.
EXOTIC FOODS.
SEASONED TARANTULA and BIG COCKROACH in spicy flavors, usually available in the streets of Seim Reap. This are their local exotic foods that was harvested in the farms.
Desserts and Snacks.
PORPEAY. a Khmer snack that you can buy on the street of Siem Reap during afternoon, it is glazy outside that is so sweet and have mash sweetened wild potato fillings. 
Another kind of PORPEAY but this one has no sweet potato fillings.
RICE CAKE IN A BAMBOO. I so love this dessert, its a rice cake cook insde the bamboo shell, it contains sweet red beans inside as well, it is usually sell along the streets by some vendors. CAMBODIAN SWEET. the free dessert sweet by Sovanna Resto, its a jelly wrap inside banana leaf and with sweet Mongo(Green Beans) stuff inside.
There you are, some new foods that you can look for when you visit Cambodia next time. I may not be so sure with the spellings of some food in local tongue, but that's how it was called and I did ask some Cambodian to spell it to me.

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.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. 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.
