Alexander: This is what happens when passion meets opportunity

When UC Riverside named Mike Magpayo its head men’s basketball coach July 1, after David Patrick accepted the associate head coach position at Arkansas, it was a shot in the arm for diversity as well as a big story in the Philippines.

Yamaha XSR 155 Launches in the Philippines

Those Lucky Riders The Philippines get some cool bikes, including the new Yamaha XSR 155. The new baby XSR looks a lot like its bigger siblings but just packs a smaller punch designed specifically the roads and riders in Asian markets.  With that said, I would definitely ride one of these, and I think it could be a super-cool competitor to the small bikes sold by Honda, Kawasaki, and other motorcycle companies here in North America. The little bike gets a 155.1cc fuel-injected, liquid-cooled, s...

Filippinos starve as President Duterte vows not to ease the world's longest lockdown

Jeepney buses, with their cheerfully gaudy exteriors and packed-in seats, are a national symbol of the Philippines, a form of public transport known affectionately as 'kings of the road'. But almost all of them have been forced off the roads by possibly the world's longest and strictest coronavirus lockdown. The situation has left many of the drivers destitute and desperate, with fellow citizens stepping in to raise money for them via Facebook groups. Jowel Palaña, 41, a jeepney driv...

From a young woman in the Philippines: I’ve always been a very nervous person. But there are times when I don’t know if it’s still nervousness or an anxiety attack already.

My heart beat gets fast. I somet...

I’ve spent my life eating for a living. There are weeks when I dine out for breakfas...
