MANILA -- Kanto Freestyle is that restaurant you want to go to after a night of partying. Long known for its silogs and Filipino comfort food, its offerings are the perfect pound of cure or ounce of prevention for a hangover. Kanto had its humble beginnings in 2011. Brothers Vince and Archie Juanta thought of a restaurant that would bring chef’s techniques to Filipino comfort food. “Hindi lang luto-luto or stir-fry,” noted New Zealand-based Archie Juanta, who opened Chef Arch’s Lime 88 a year earlier which would become famous for off-beat twists to Filipino favorites like his Balut in Red Wine. Vince Juanta conceptualized Kanto Freestyle and handled the business side, while Archie engineered the menu. Together with college friends Ian Ocampo and Eugene Claravall, the first branch opened on the periphery of Maysilo Circle in Mandaluyong.

We’ve been told that positive thinking creates miracles. But wait, there’s more! The classic advice is for us to spend a great deal of time visualizing in our mind whatever it is that we wish for while paying little or no attention to the obstacles and limitations. There are even books promising that we can get what we desire by simply using the law of attraction. No effort required. The book "Rethinking Positive Thinking" by psychology professor Gabrielle Oettinger offers an opposite point of view, but perhaps a more effective method. To dream or to do? In numerous experiments, Dr. Oettinger and her team proved that the more people engaged in “positive fantasies”, the less success they had in real life. She wrote, “In the face of a big challenge or chore, people often fantasize about how it feels to have achieved it. In the moment, the fantasy feels good, and it also feels relaxing —so much that we don’t take action.” She noted that many … [Read more...] about News OPINION: What’s so much better than positive thinking?
