The end of circuit breaker meant the resumption of our normal lives somewhat, and with that, some hobbies that we picked up might have ended with us no longer needing to stay home. That's not the case for Fann Wong, though. She's continued to share what's she's been up to in the kitchen and with her oven, well after the end of circuit breaker. To mark Chinese Valentine's Day on Monday (August 25), she put up a video and recipe of her fudge loaf cake. Husband Christopher Lee and son Zed must have devoured it quite quickly, as despite the huge loaf in the image, Fann proudly proclaimed on social media that it was "out of stock already". Here's my attempt at Fann's fudge loaf cake recipe, where I halved the ingredients to fit a smaller pan.

Presidential aspirant Isko Moreno has been on the receiving end of criticism for what people call fence-sitting or a lack of categorical answers when it comes to issues like Leila de Lima and the Duterte war on drugs. He’s been called “Duterte Lite” or “Duterte 2.0” as people speculate that his lack of clarity is proof that he is a puppet being controlled by President Rodrigo Duterte or that he would adopt his controversial policies if elected into Malacañang. Then there’s the sneering at a man once invited by opposition coalition 1Sambayan and suspected of being impostor who does not represent the “true opposition.” Veteran journalist and Inquirer columnist John Nery wrote that there's no way Isko can now be considered an opposition candidate. Two political analysts say fence-sitting is nothing new and Moreno likely won’t be the only candidate to be accused of this in the months ahead. With President Duterte still enjoying fairly high ... » Learn More about Duterte Lite: Is fence-sitting a sin or strategy in 2022 elections?
I was on a bus riding back home when I read the breaking news on my phone: Duterte appoints Vice President Leni Robredo as co-chair of gov't committee vs illegal drugs . I almost choked on my coffee. This is a ludicrous move from the Palace and only meant to shame the Vice President and critics of the failing "war on drugs." Back in 2016, the then-presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte campaigned on an anti-crime and anti-drugs platform. For the first time in recent memory, a candidate running for a national post politicized such an issue to rouse the electorate's emotions and secure their votes. This is a bold move in a country where campaigns traditionally centered on corruption, economics, and poverty. The previous mayor of Davao City even went on to say that he would put an end to crime in "3-6 months" and annihilate everyone associated with the drug trade. Never mind that countless health and crime experts around the world, including the former ... » Learn More about [OPINION] Nothing but a honeytrap: Leni Robredo’s appointment as anti-drug co-chair
