Renowned artist Nune Alvarado exhibit in ILOMOCA entitled ‘Songs from the Sea’

In the coastal city of Sagay in Negros Occidental, Filipino artist Nunelucio Alvarado has made not only a home but a community. 

“Inaawitan ako ng dagat,” says Alvarado of the peace he found in this place—the kind that has paved the way for a new kind of prosperity, one that feeds back into his community to enrich the lives of its members through art.

His latest series of paintings and objects dubbed as “Stories of Restoration, Songs of the Sea” is composed of works that appear to be a far cry from the jarring depictions of life in the cane fields and mills for which Alvarado has been known. Instead, the artist takes inspiration from the community he helped create, giving back through art what he himself has gained after over three decades of practice.

“Tonight marks another milestone for us at Megaworld as we mark the first year since we ventured into the intricate world of museum management, and already we are closing the year with yet another highlight exhibit. Nune Alvarado’s ‘Songs …

Hino Motors presence to spur modernized jeepneys in Panay

With the opening of Hino Panay Showroom and Service Center in Iloilo, commuters within Iloilo City and the rest of the island will eventually be riding the Hino Modern Jeepney Euro 4.

"The government has asked us manufacturers to produce as much as we can so that operators can transition to the new jeepneys," said Vicente Mills, Hino Motors Philippines (HMP) chairman, regarding the Philippine government's PUV Modernization Program (PUVMP).

"We already have orders coming from different cooperatives," said Gerald Vagilidad, sales and parts manager of Hino Panay.

"We are following the platform laid out by the Department of Transportation and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board. One franchise, one route and one operator. That operator represents one cooperative," Vagilidad added.

"The franchise is given to cooperatives so that it will be managed as a fleet," said Mills. He added that this system ensures that the jeeps are well-maint…

Live Comfort Food: my top 5 scrumptious picks

The definition of "comfort food" varies for each individual. It could be a mom or grandma's home cooked dish. It could be food that changes one's mood from bad to good. It could be a dish that is so easy to prepare as the word "comfort" suggests. Or it could be food that keeps one healthy. Live Comfort Food can be all of these to everyone.

I go to Live Comfort Food whenever I yearn for these mouthwatering dishes: (1) Chicken Teriyaki with Mushroom Sauce Pizza, (2) Meatless Bibimbap, (3) Low-Calorie Carbonara, (4) Roasted Seaweed, and (5) Smoked Fish and Lemon Pasta. All their dishes are made from the best and nutritious ingredients.

They did not scrimp on the ingredients for Chicken Teriyaki with Mushroom Sauce Pizza. This healthy pizza is topped with a generous amount of chicken teriyaki strips, mushroom slices, olives, and cheese.

Low-Calorie Carbonara’s sauce is soya cream, giving it a light yet delightful taste. Surprisingly, it goes well with Roasted Seaw…
