REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The first person diagnosed in the United States with Ebola is fighting for his life at a Dallas hospital.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say 42-year-old Thomas Eric Duncan is in critical condition.

Before leaving for the Philippines to head a 60 member delegation of the U.S. trade, Investment and Humanitarian Mission to the Philippines, the Philippine Honorary Consul-General in Texas, Ethel Mercado, maintains that none of the 100 people that have come in contact with Duncan and are now being quarantined or monitored, are Filipino.

LA festival celebrates Filipino culture and arts at FPAC

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 06:34

By Balitang America, ABS-CBN North America Bureau

Oct. 6, 2014

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The Filipino community returned in grand fashion to celebrate the annual Festival of Philippine Arts and Culture over the weekend.

The annual celebration pays tribute to Filipino’s Los Angeles roots. Nearly a hundred years ago when Filipinos began migrating to Los Angeles, many settled in LA’s Bunker Hill neighborhood surrounding present day City Hall, before spreading through Southern California.

“I feel like I’ve come full circle because we’re back,” said Norma Austin, co-founder of FPAC. “We’re back in City Hall and at the same time, it’s exciting. I see the younger generation and this is the reason why to begin with this tradition.”

The annual celebration, now in its 23rd year, drew thousands to LA’s City Hall footsteps, giving Angeleno’s the chance to enjoy Filipino culture, food, money remittance services, educational programs, and entertainment in the heart of the city.

“It’s more like an urban type festival,” said Joe Bernardo. “The good part about it, I think, it attracts a broader audience and brings more people here.”

“It’s fun because of the Filipino community,” said Joanna Lindo, from San Diego.

“It’s very important for us to look back at history,” said John Firamonio.

The festivities were capped off by Mr. Super Selfie himself, and one of LA’s newest residents, Gab Valenciano, along with Geneva Cruz and TFC Sikat winner Darry Ogalino for the TFC Kapamilya Hour.

Pacquiao guaranteed at least $20 million for upcoming fight

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 06:16

Oct. 6, 2014

LAS VEGAS – In just six weeks, the Pacquiao-Algieri fight will take place in Macau, China, both fighters are busy gearing up for the most anticipated match of the year.

“It should be a great fight and I hope Manny is going to train very, very hard for this fight,” said Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, “Because Algieri has the size advantage, he is a very intelligent kid, and he moves very well – so Manny has to be on top of his game.”

In an exclusive interview with Balitang America, Bob Arum confirms the boxers’ fight purses.

“Manny’s purse from various sources is guaranteed to be not less than $20 million and guaranteed purses,” said Arum, “But what Chris is getting, that’s up to his promoter. But I’m paying him $2.75 million.”

When asked about Pacquiao’s tax woes, Arum said, “Philippines has a very good judicial system, and Manny went to the court in the Philippines and got an injunction against the tax people, because what they were doing was absolutely insane. They were taxing him on revenue that didn’t exist. … I think there’s a lot of politics.”

It was last year when the BIR froze some of the Pacman’s bank account, days after the Pacman’s victory against Brandon Rios.

Arum says although it’s inappropriate for him to comment on government officials, the president should take action.

“I think the president should be aware,” said Arum. “I think he is aware, President Aquino, on what’s happening and what she’s doing. What a loose cannon she seems to be and take appropriate action.”

SF Consulate addresses domestic violence at seminar

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 06:07

SAN FRANCISCO – The Alliance for Community Empowerment: Kumares and Kumpares (or ALLICE) recently held their 10th annual “Free From Violence” seminar at the Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco.

The free event featured a resource fair on building safe and healthy family relationships while addressing the seriousness of domestic abuse.

“We are very proud to be one of the partners of ALLICE in addressing this very important issue, and of course we are pleased to host this in the consulate which is supposed to be a safe haven for the community,” said Consulate General Jaime Ramon Ascalon.

ALLICE members and noted speakers shared disturbing facts about domestic violence.

For example, one in four women will experience domestic violence during her lifetime. Also, every year, one in three women who is a victim of homicide is murdered by her current or former partner. Domestic violence continues to be one of the most unreported crimes.

Actress and domestic abuse survivor Giovannie Espiritu gave her testimony to bring awareness that victims are often unaware that they are in a harmful relationships.

“There’s a lot of shame and guilt involved in domestic violence and abuse, like where a lot of survivors don’t even want to come out because they feel guilty,” said Espiritu. “Like I said in my testimony, when my acting teacher said it wasn’t my fault that was the first time somebody told me it wasn’t my fault and that inspired me to get help because I thought it was all me.”

Domestic violence survivors Espiritu and former Mayor of Colma Joanne del Rosario share their messages to all kababayans in hope others will be more aware of the seriousness of the problem.

“Domestic violence has no face,” said del Rosario. “If you were sitting next to me you would never say ‘oh, she was a victim of domestic violence.’ It’s a strong message that I send out to all women, that there is life and there is hope after domestic violence.”

“If you know someone that is in an abusive relationship, don’t be afraid to talk with them and tell them it’s not their fault and that you’re concerned about them,” said Espiritu. “If you are the one in an abusive relationship, don’t be afraid to get the help, because there are support groups out there that are willing to help you out of those situations that you don’t have to feel scared anymore.”

ALLICE put together a resource guide for all those suffering from domestic abuse. In this guide called the A-List users can find different resource providers throughout the Bay Area. This free pamphlet is found on their website at

Utah’s Fil-Am AG calls for unity after failing to revive same-sex marriage ban

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 06:00

By Balitang America, ABS-CBN North America Bureau

Oct. 6, 2014

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The marriage equality movement celebrated another victory as the Supreme Court clears the way for same-sex marriage in five states, including Utah, where a Filipino-America Attorney General led the charge to uphold his state’s ban.

The high court rejected appeals from Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Indiana.

The states asked the court to review their bans on same-sex marriage after Federal Appeals Court judges ruled them unconstitutional.

The move would also invalidate similar bans in six other states.

Despite vowing to defend his state’s ban on same-sex marriage, Utah’s Fil-Am Attorney General Sean Reyes said, “It’s time for people of goodwill on both sides of the issue to come together now and heal any rifts.”

Two Alaskan Filipinos cleared of murder charges, await possible new trial

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 05:48

By Balitang America, ABS-CBN North America Bureau

Oct. 6, 2014

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – In Alaska, a jury acquitted two Filipinos of second degree murder in the 2012 death of a Nigerian processing worker.

Thirty-six-year-old Leonardo Bongolto Jr. and 42-year-old Denison Soria were each charged with two counts of second degree murder and one count of first degree assault on February 2012, after 55-year-old Jonathan Adams’ death at the Planet Dutch Bunkhouse of Bering Fisheries in the city of Unalaska.

While the two Filipinos were found not guilty on the most serious murder offenses, the manslaughter and other charges against them could be settled with a plea bargain or even a new trial.

They remain in custody in Anchorage, unable to post a $250,000 dollar bail.

Their next court date is set for November 14.

U.S. airports may impose additional screenings for Ebola

Balitang America - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 05:41

By Balitang America, ABS-CBN North America Bureau

Oct. 6, 2014


President Barack Obama is scheduled to meet with top health and security officials Monday to discuss whether to impose additional screenings at U.S. airports for some travelers arriving from Ebola-infected African nations.

Lawmakers are now urging the federal government to take action now.

New York Senator Charles Schumer urges the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to train border agents to screen airline passengers coming from Ebola hot pots in West Africa for fevers as they arrive in America.

Schumer says hospitals should also be provided with a list of those travelers screened for Ebola to prevent another incident that happened in a Dallas hospital, where Ebola patient Thomas Duncan was sent home even after he told the hospital staff that he had recently traveled from Liberia.

“We’re asking for two things to be done at US airports for those who come from the Ebola hotspots when they arrive,” said Senator Schumer. “One, take their temperature. Two, the much more extensive screening and list of questions that might detect if they had contact with people who have Ebola.”

But some lawmakers want the U.S. government to take things even further – they are now calling for the U.S. to halt flights from Ebola stricken nations to America.

“It just makes sense,” said Governor Bobby Jindal. “Prevention is so much better than responding after the fact. I’m calling the Obama administration – it’s just a common-sensible thing to do – why not stop the flights?”

A rich and satisfying breakfast at Maple Restaurant in Makati

The Picky Pescetarian - Tue, 09/30/2014 - 19:13

It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, that it jumpstarts your metabolism, that it fuels you for the day, that it makes you more alert, and that there’s a host of other reasons why the day’s first meal is good for you. For me, breakfast is the best meal of the day mostly because breakfast menus offer more to me as a vegetarian than any other meal, as eggs are usually offered at this time of day. (Omelette stations at breakfast buffets are the best!)
Recently, I’ve been having to wake up very early for a particular workout that I’ve been doing with some friends, and the thing I really look forward to and think about a lot while exercising is where we’re going to eat afterwards. One place that we’ve been going to, also because it’s near the gym we go to, is Maple.
One nice thing about a lot of my friends is that they go out of their way to order dishes that I can eat. Or if there is meat in them, they just ask the servers to put it on the side. In this way, we just order a number of dishes and just share the calories (almost) equally.
On this particular visit, we ordered the Huevos Rancheros, described by the menu as “a classical Mexican breakfast made with tortillas, refried beans, grilled chicken and a sunny-side up egg topped with cheese and ranchero sauce.”
 Huevos Rancheros

We also ordered the Eggs Benedict, “a Maple signature topped with Canadian bacon, poached eggs, and Hollandaise sauce served with crunchy Bistro fries.”  Eggs Benedict

Lastly, we had the truffle omelette soufflé thus described: “with a rich and creamy truffle taste this is the lightest fluffiest soufflé style omelette you will ever find to melt in your mouth. “
Truffle Omelette Souffle
After the food arrived, we realized there was too much food for just the three of us. The servings were generous and satisfying. We had a unanimous favorite- the huevos rancheros. This was relatively unique for a morning dish in Manila, as you do not find it often in breakfast menus here. The taste of it was a refreshing break from the richness of the other two dishes.
The eggs benedict did not particularly stand out, and tasted pretty much the same as a lot of other restaurants’ versions. The fries that went with it though were another matter. They were crunchy and tasty and done just right. Not a very healthy way to start the day, but at least the calories were worth it.
The truffle omelette soufflé was a bit too rich for my friends. I thought the bread that went with it could offset the richness. There was not enough bread to go with it though, as the omelette was a bit huge. It was really too rich to eat on its own.
All told, we were satisfied with the food, and stuffed to the brim with it. We came to the conclusion that the workout we did that morning whetted our appetites but did not burn enough to compensate for all that we ate.
I like Maple, not just because of the food, but also because of the way the place seems to be perfect for having a relaxing breakfast with your friends. The sun shines through the big windows just enough to give you the feel of early morning, and you have a good view of other people in the area having breakfast and starting the day right.
