Autotelic lets go of its painful past with hopeful new single ‘Iwan’

Image
When Filipino pop-rock bands in the early 2010s started to gain mainstream prominence, Autotelic emerged as one of the movement’s leading voices. From churning heartfelt anthems that reflect the sentiments and triumphs of the current generation to rocking the stage with unforgettable performances, the six-piece band sets the standards of what modern pop songcraft is all about: beautifully resonant at its most melancholic, and defenseless in its poignant honesty. Fast forward to 2021, Autotelic’s music still hits home. Their work has been consistent in eloquently expressing the woes and rewards of being young, in love and emotionally wrecked, and is informed not so much by its time, but by timelessness and enduring appeal. These qualities are inevitably present on “Iwan,” Autotelic’s new single released under MCA Music Inc. Teeming with earnestness and indelible pop sensibilities, Autotelic’s latest track sticks to the quivering fragility that often permeates their material. But this ti

Tiya Ising’s, the history on food.

For millennials in Palawan, Lola Itang is a classic restaurant that has witnessed many important occasions. It was mostly the venue for some press conferences of notable national and local officials. Sadly, it needed to fold down to give way for the bed and breakfast theme of its pension house.
Good thing, Tiya Ising’s is born to continue the legacy of Lola Itang in providing Filipino comfort foods not only for Palawenyos, but for those who visit the City.

“Just last November (2015) we open it. Another concept, still Filipino foods pero may touch of history in its interior. It’s all about old Puerto, everything na makikita nyo na pictures are historical places na yung iba kasama pa sa mga tours.” Katrina Austria, Owner and Manager of Tiya Ising’s explained.
The 40-seater restaurant located in Roxas Street beside the former Lola Itang Resto, is open on Tuesdays to Sundays from 11am to 9pm. Menu is almost the same with Lola Itang. They are famous for its Kare-Kare, Adobo, Fried Boneless Bangus, Crispy Pata and Lechon Kawali. Most of the meals that are served are home cooked meals that according to Kristina are their own recipes that their family kept for many years now.

But what challenged Tiya Ising's is the research and compiling of old photographs that served as one of its main attractions. According to Austria majority of the photos are from her family collections, and from Amar Studio, one of the oldest photo studios in Palawan.
But who is Tiya Ising?
“TiyaIsing is my lola, sister of my Lola Itang, and she’s still living with us, lola na tiyahin.” Austria said.

The area where Tiya Ising is located is on the place where the glorious Puerto Princesa is situated. The building itself is a former bowling arena that is surrounded by many old houses by some early matriarchal family in the City. It is also a stone’s throw away to the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral.

So if you’re looking for good Filipino food with an array of Palawan’s history, come and visit Tiya Ising’s. The prices are affordable that usually good for groups. In less than P500, definitely you’ll have a full stomach.
