Where to get the best Cebu lechon in Manila

It’s hard to top Genevieve Hing’s lechon.
The first time I tried it was at Jappy Gonzalez’s place in 2007, and of course I got the number.

Seven years later, this is the only lechon we order at home.
What makes it different from other lechons is it doesn’t need any sauce. The skin is salty, crispy, and for someone who doesn’t normally eat lechon meat, I’m a fan.

Abub’s Cebuana Native Lechon

The color is much different from other oily-skinned orange-toned lechons. This one is matte-colored and more natural-looking. My favourite part is wherever it is bubbly. That tells me it’s the crunchiest part.

Abub’s Cebuana Native Lechon

Genevieve Hing started Abub’s Cebuana Native Lechon in December 2002.
In the beginning, she used the fly in lechons daily from Cebu. Now she has her own commissary in Kalawaan, Pasig that is manned by expert Cebuano lechon cooks.
Using a proven technique, the pigs are prepared with a tried and tested Cebu lechon recipe and roasted in a cemented roasting pit with charcoal.
It is very hard to top this pig!

Official NBA store opens at Glorietta

When the boys were born, my Dutch husband and his brother Victor were really hoping the kids would take up football and play for the Netherlands team. But having been born and raised in the Philippines, the boys naturally took to basketball instead. Our son Markus was already dribbling a ball before he could even speak at 1.5 years old.
Our boys are extremely passionate about basketball, particularly the NBA.

So despite last night’s Friday traffic, I dropped everything to go to the VIP opening of the NBA store at Glorietta 3.
The newly opened NBA store is located where CPK used to be. We’re talking about two floors and more than 1,000 square meters of retail space. This is the largest NBA store outside of the USA, which probably means our economy is good :)
The store carries authentic NBA merchandise from all 30 teams. You’ll find head-to-toe gear for all ages, starting with adorable kiddie clothes (for early conditioning)

Typhoon Hagupit network readiness advisory from Smart/Sun network

SMART & SUN mobile networks are prepared for Typhoon Hagupit, which is expected to make landfall this weekend.
Check out this Google Earth animation of the current storm threat to the eastern Philippines.

SMART and SUN are monitoring the typhoon’s movement, and plans are in place to maintain communication services and ensure speedy response and restoration should facilities be adversely affected.
Restoration equipment and personnel are already in the Visayas, Southern Luzon & Northern Mindanao regions. Their equipment includes generator sets and batteries that will support capacities of telecommunications equipment in the region, as well as equipment for free call and free charging services.
This will enable Smart-Sun to respond quickly to failures and community needs as they occur.
Rest assured that Smart & Sun are exerting all efforts to minimize, if not prevent, interruptions to vital telecommunications services that may be caused by typhoon Hagupit.

All mobile phone users are encouraged to:
1. Fully charge cell phone batteries.
2. In the event of power outages, conserve battery power. Make sensible use of voice calls. Text messaging uses less power.
3. Store emergency numbers in your cell phone, including family members, TV and radio stations, and relief agencies like the National Disaster Coordinating Council, local government units, local police, local chapter of the Philippine National Red Cross, etc. Keep a hard copy just in case.
4. Keep a battery-operated radio handy as well as spare batteries to stay up to date on evacuation warnings, storm and rescue developments, in case electric and communication facilities shut down.
5. Keep your cell phone dry and keep in protective plastic bag if necessary.
