A weekend of good food and good music MANILA, Philippines — Good food and good music make a very good weekend experience. Solaire’s Waterside is the venue for it. It is called Weekend Jam. “It was a group effort,” Audie Gemora, the resort-casino’s director of entertainment, said of the musical treat (served with good food). “Before we had a bar called Eclipse... and they made it into another gaming area.

"'Yong hinog na hinog na na katarata, hinintay, hindi pinatingnan sa doktor, hindi pinaoperahan, puwedeng mauwi sa glaucoma," sabi ni Dr. Nilo Vincent Florcruz II sa programang "Good Vibes" ng DZMM.
