  • 1. Sunshine Dizon’s estranged husband hopes for a 'favorable and reasonable agreement'


    Even before the court hearing last Tuesday, August 10, rumors circulated that Sunshine Dizon’s estranged husband, Timothy Tan, was seeking to settle the two cases Sunshine filed against him (an Anti-Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC) and concubinage). Timothy’s lawyer Atty. Ruth Castelo neither confirmed nor denied the rumors. However, she added, “We, of course, expect and hope that we will get a reasonable and acceptable agreement between the parties. Silang dalawa, of course they will decide. Hindi lang naman lawyers ang nagdedesisyon para sa parties.” Timothy’s camp asked for a postponement of their counter-affidavit until August 25 because of “developments” in the case. (pep.ph)

    4. New tilapia ice cream bags awards!

    No, it does not smell fishy nor does it have an aftertaste. The tilapia-flavored ice cream developed by the Central Luzon State University (CLSU) won the Innovation Gold Award during the Salon International de L’Agroalimentaire (SIAL) ASEAN Manila 2016. The new flavor, Daerrys Tilapia Ice Cream, won over 350 exhibitors from 25 countries all over the world. The ice cream is made from tilapia fillet, all-purpose cream, condensed and fresh milk, chopped walnuts, and diced cheese, according to the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD). The name Daerrys came from the ice cream proponents’ nicknames, CLSU assistant professor Dana Vera Cruz and CLSU president Dr. Terry (full name Tereso) Abella, who provided the idea for the recipe. The Tilapia Ice Cream even has its own line that includes Original Flavored Tilapia Ice Cream and Tilapia Sansrival. (manila.coconuts.co

He added that the new policy will also be applied to areas otuside NCR. (spot.ph)
