Why ‘Manila’—why not, chocnut?
The use of the hit song "Manila," originally recorded in 1976 by the band Hotdog, as soundtrack to the parade of the Philippine contingent at the Southeast Asian Games opening ceremonies on Nov. 30 was an unintentional masterstroke. The backstory was that an elder brother of the song's composers had offered "Manila" to be used anywhere during the opening program, but with the suggestion that it be included in the "Pinoy medley" segment. Problem was, the music producer of the opening rites thought, "Hindi bagay (not a good match)" because that segment would be highlighted by a Pinoy rap medley (including "Man From Manila"). The producer decided instead to use "Manila" to accompan...Keep on reading: Why ‘Manila’—why not, chocnut?

Not only was it an impressive showcase of the talents of our singers and dancers, our music and dances, it was also a triumph of costume design. Eric Pineda, head costume designer, said the brief was to incorporate indigenous Filipino materials in the various suites ---from the welcome suite and the parade of athletes down to the rap and hip-hop segments ---to put texture, patterns and color on the vast stage of the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena.

BenCab and his nudes: ‘His eyes wander and revel, inch by inch . . .’
A male artist drawing a female nude. In the age of #MeToo, reflexive political correctness, and the feminist critique of the male gaze, that can be problematic. But National Artist BenCab cuts straight to the heart of the matter. "My nudes are erotic," he says. In fact, there was talk of possibly putting a "parental advisory" warning on "Desnudas: Life Drawings by BenCab," an ongoing exhibit of his nude drawings at Secret Fresh gallery. Rather than play coy, or retreat into the artist's safe zone of abstracting the female body into planes and curves, shadows and light, the artist taps into the inherent sexual energy between men and women to give life to his drawings.
