Pope Francis has moved people’s hearts and touched the lives even of the non-Catholics and the non-believers throughout the world. Throughout his life he has been noted for his humility and concern for the poor.
We wish him a wonderful visit to the Philippines this week. His Holiness Pope Francis will bring his message of “mercy and compassion”.

Here is a very Primed friendly restaurant worth putting on your To DO list for early 2015.
Fig is a new Mediterranean restaurant along Kalayaan Avenue (near Howzat!) in Makati.
It was my pleasure to have a really nice lunch with triathlete Mikel Antunez last week where we both thoroughly enjoyed our food.
The ambiance is cozy, the restaurant is well lit with natural sunlight and there is an open kitchen where French Chef Patrice Martelly creates great dishes. Eventually they will also incorporate the 2nd level which will be ideal for private parties.
