Hari Osias Banaag: Championing Pinoy Martial Arts on a Global Scale

Sikaran was awarded in the First Filipino Martial Arts Hall Of Fame 2012 in Manila. Joinjing Hari Banaag in the photo, from left: Col. Arnold Abad, Sarah Abad, Hari’s Brother Master Manuel Banaag, Actor Ricardo Cepeda, Annie Torres of Philippine Tourism and Col. Lyndon Torres.

Sikaran is a Filipino Martial Art said to have originated in the Tagalog region. Here, opponents for sport or for combat try to engage each other using kicks that mimic that of the farm animals. A Side Thrust Kick, for example, copies the kick of a cow. The Back Kick is inspired by the powerful backwards punt of a horse, while the Jumping Front Kick copies a steed as it rears. The most widely-used or “signature” kick is the Biyakid or Biyak Patagilid which engages the power of the whole body and channels it to the waist, leg, and feet, making it the most effective one in the combatant’s arsenal.

Sunday Morning at the Hello Kitty Cafe Philippines at Uptown Bonifacio

My Sundays consist of going to church, laundry or cleaning the house. This Sunday, I had a date with a certain Ms. White - Kitty White. Finally, the Hello Kitty Cafe in Uptown BGC finally opens and we had first dibs to this very cute and adorable cafe. 

You see, I have been to Hello Kitty Puroland at Malaysia, and the Hello Kitty Cafe at Myeongdong, Korea, so I was so ecstatic when the Hello Kitty Desserts Bar opened last year at SM City North EDSA. I took every opportunity to go there and try the sumptuous sweet treats. But when I finally discovered that they are already closed, my heart was kinda broken...until I saw the Hello Kitty Cafe sign at the 3rd Floor of Uptown BGC this year.
