TO celebrate the 53rd anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines this month of September, the SINAG 2022: Light and Sound spectacle will light up the CCP façade from September 22-25, 2022. Multi-awarded lighting designer John Batalla conceptualized the outdoor light show with sound design by Jethro Joaquin. “We will interpret the three transcendentals of Truth, Goodness and Beauty paired with a soundscape of indigenous Filipino instruments, snippets of folk music and quintessential Filipino sound bites or quotable quotes from the past,” Batalla said. Batalla partnered with Joaquin to curate the soundscape or soundtrack for the show. SINAG 2022 is produced by the CCP Production Design and Technical Services Division.  The event will create a vibrant and effervescent atmosphere on the façade and its environs, the CCP PDTSD said. The show, which runs for 10 minutes, will open at 7pm on September 22 and run from September 23 to 25 at 7:00pm, 7:30pm, 8:00pm, 8:30pm, 9:00p

Eating together at Sobremesa.

Queso Fundido
Eating is best when you share stories at the table. That’s what Sobremesa, a South American restaurant in Sapphire Bloc aims to promote at this age when technology changed the food culture.

Taken from its Spanish meaning, Sobremesa refers to the time spent together with people you share a meal with. Guests of Sobremesa are requested to surrender their phones before eating in exchange of desert. The phones will be locked on a cage and the key will be surrendered to you.
Mango Cheesecake & Lecheron
Established in 2015 by Chef Banjo Tuason, Sobremesa is a business venture by The Menu Group that features exciting cuisines that cater to diverse markets. Chef Tuason told us that their menu is tagged as South American cuisine with a fusion of Asian flavors.
Chorizo Pamplona, Salchiron, Vela De Lomo & Chorizo De Bilbao.
The taste makes you think of childhood memories where Chef Tuason takes his inspiration.

One outstanding appetizer we tried is the Quezo Fundido, which is best eaten while it’s hot and crispy with a dip of a special blend of cheese.  The Bulalo Estofado is such a delight. It tastes very Filipino yet unique with the tenderness of its meat.
Peruvian Roasted Chicken, Cuban Pork Chop, Bulalo Estofado & Shrimp Ceviche Salad.
Other recommendations are the Australian Rib Eye Steak, meat galore of Chorizo Pamplona, Salchicon, Vela De Lomo and Chorizo De Bilbao. The Shrimp Salad is a galore for comfort, and the Mango Cheesecake is a winner of not tolerating your sweet tooth. But the Lecheron, a macaroon served as leche flan is a big surprise.

Sobremesa is located in Sapphire Bloc, Sapphire Road, Ortigas Center in Pasig City. For reservations and events you may contact them at 917-624-5470, 917-950-9489 or follow them at Facebook or Instagram tru @sobremesaph.
