T

he Cagayan de Oro photography club, Oro Photographic Society (OPS), successfully organized the first ever Mindanao Photo Summit, July 31 to August 2. Themed “Island Interlinks,” the Summit also showcased photographic equipment, gears, accessories, and other related products on exhibit at the Centrio Ayala Mall.

participants to the basics of photography, while Canon ambassador Ibarra Deri shared his expertise in the field of “Portrait Photography” and “Product Photography”. Canon ambassador, Edwin Martinez, treated the participants to the beauty of “Landscape Photography,” and Francisco Mark Floro,

also a Canon ambassador. Parallel to the Mindanao Photo Summit is the 2nd “OPS Kagay-an Photography Contest” to spice up the fiesta celebration from August 1 to August 31. OPS President Engineer Lauriel Dela Cruz says “The photo contest started last year and summit/PAGE 11

othing new with this, you might say after reading my today’s column-headline. Nothing new? Check out this: Facebook launches Aquila, the Internet-beaming drone! Facebook said it is ready to begin the pilot program of a high-altitude drone that will beam the Internet to remote parts of the world. The solar-powered drone will be able to fly without landing for three months. Aquila has a 40-meter (130-foot) wingspan - on par with a Boeing 737 weighs less than a car, and can stay aloft at an altitude of 20,000 to 30,000 meters for three months at a time. Test flights will begin later this year. Facebook’s head Mark Zuckerberg announced Aquila in a video posted to his personal page on last

Thursday night. “This effort is important because 10 percent of the world’s population lives in areas without existing internet infrastructure,” Zuckerberg wrote. “To affordably connect everyone, we need to build completely new technologies. “Using aircraft to connect communities using lasers might seem like science fiction,” he continued. “But science fiction is often just science before its time. Over the coming months, we will test these systems in the real world and continue refining them so we can turn their promise into reality.” Wow! So, let me ask you my dear readers: Boone or ban? Lasers, solar, and drones, oh my! This might be indeed “a significant milestone” and could “quickly bring connectivity to an area that needs it.”

“Our goal is to accelerate the development of a new set of technologies that can drastically change the economics of deploying internet infrastructure,” wrote Parikh in a blog post. “We are exploring a number of different approaches to this challenge, including aircraft, satellites and terrestrial solutions.” An eye to the future... .But, how about our privacy? Facebook’s Connectivity Lab unveiled its plan to “deliver the internet to everyone” last year by harnessing solar, laser, and developing drone technologies. The Connectivity lab is part of Facebook’s “Internet.org” initiative to bring the internet to developing countries. Other tech companies such as Google and Microsoft are also experimenting with how to transmit

Memories are made of these D

uring my salad days as a student in that far off enclave of Zamboanga, our barkada had two favorite places to hang out where we could get delicious food and drinks cheap for a group of ravenous young people. This was long before the advent of fast food chains and with our allowances counted in centavos rather than pesos, pancit was the default food for a big group with loaves of bread and colas on the side. Admittedly everything in those days were dirt cheap compared to what our kids are now paying for fast food, but that did not detract from the quality of the pancit which was most often piping-hot pancit canton complete with all the rekados of vegetables, shrimp, chicken liver, chinese sausage, squid strips and the like. Happily for us, happy days are here again with the advent of a relatively new place (just a year old last March 15) that brings back those memories in a flash. Pan-Chic (short for

pancit and chicken) is the brainchild of Chef Eric Ranara-Yap, him of the Sentro 1850, Butcher’s Best, and most recently, Circa 1850 fame. Together with lifetime partner Genevieve See-Yap, they sought to put up an “everyday sort of place” where family or friends can come in to take a quick meal, take it out or have it delivered to their doorstep without too much fuss. Unlike many his formally trained peers, Eric’s training and talent has been handed down to him the traditional way- from his family and relatives. His mother Soledad (“Soling”) encouraged him to try cooking when he was but 6 yrs old. He also drew inspiration from his cousin, the late Gloria Dychauco of Pots’n’Pans Home Bake & Coffee Shop who pioneered al fresco dining and haute cuisine in Cagayan de Oro when it was still a sleepy, little town with traditional home-based cooking. With the advent of the fast paced urban lifestyle and fast foods, many families and barkadas

yearn for the good old days of tasty and filling resto meals cooked the traditional way which wouldn’t set you back for an arm or leg. “That’s why we give our diners the flexibility to choose whether to dine in-house, take it out or have their meals delivered at home, depending on how far they are from our place, or perhaps, the weather situation,” Eric explains. And that’s also why I believe our college barkada would have found Pan-Chic a cool place to hang out because even at P129 per serving of stir-fried Pancit Canton or P195 for lemon fried chicken, the servings are large enough for 4-5 persons. Besides their flagship pancit and chicken dishes, Pan-Chic also serves crispy lumpia, sweet and sour pork, quekiam meat roll, sweet and sour fish fillet, calamares, lechon macau, humba, sweet beef with onion and beef with broccoli. Even the veggies are the comfort foods we’ve come to associate with traditional Chinese restos

like chopsuey, kangkong with bagoong and the mouth-watering Bokchoy with garlic! Even with Cagayan de Oro’s penchant to have rains in the afternoon during the rainy season, you can still indulge in your craving for PanChic’s comfort food if you live within the perimeter of Burgos-ConsolacionCapicor-Agora-LapasanLimketkai Center-GusaVilla Ernesto-Sta.

Advanced Cake Decorating with Chef Awi Chaves

Awi Chaves’ Cakeistry CDO:

*Sweet Dreams are made of these* I

By Mike Baños

t’s quite difficult to pigeonhole Ma. Aurora “Awi” Riego de Dios GarciaChaves as an artist: cake decorator, sugar artist or sculptor? Ever since her creations burst into Cagayan de Oro’s social scene barely three years ago, orders have been coming thick and fast that she and her husband Kaye “Kap” Fumar Chaves have hardly any break putting out their

custom-made, completely hand-made fondant cakes on time. Ms. Chaves “Cakeistry” makes custom made, oneof-a-kind cakes for all occasions. “I like to believe I’m not just making cakes to last for a day but rather creating memories that will last a lifetime,” Ms. Chaves said. And what memories they are! A quick cross-section of Awi’s creations doesn’t

quite cover the length and breadth of what she can do: a lineup of genuine sugar *Longchamp Le Plaige* bags made from gum paste; a moist chocolate cake with choco panels and filigrees; a Father’s Day cake for a CB/ radio enthusiast; a *Gawad Kalinga*inspired fondant cake for the head of the local chapter of Couples for Christ; a kitchen themed cake from the Japanese anime series *Nadesico* complete with a handmade 5” high doll of *Akito Tenkawa* and a miniature kitchen complete with utensils, stove and oven; a 3-foot high cream cheese and mocha pound wedding cake decorated with fresh liliums; a 9-inch moist chocolate cake with an Eskimo theme complete with cream cheese igloo pound cake and Eskimos; and a Kagayanon classmate’s gift to her German hubby: a MAN diesel truck; who liked it so much he didn’t permit it to be eaten and brought it back with him to Germany! But you get the idea…

“Her cakes are really good, compared with things I’ve seen here and abroad,” says Carsten Radke, a professional chef from Berlin, Germany married to Kagay-anon Jennifer Abarado and owner of La Vetta, an upscale French Med resto in Limketkai Center. Frank Peter Kliem, a *Konditormeister *from Gottingen, Germany who was a visitor to the city said, “Her work looks very good and very professional - I like this work very much and think it is a really good handmade work with really good and nice details- all together a very nice cake.” Hege Aadland, Mr. Kleim’s former apprentice from Norway said Awi’s cakes were very nice and similar to cakes made by women in Norway as a hobby for their homes, friends and relatives. “Those cakes are very often much better and nicer looking than cakes you buy in a confectionery or bakery shop in Norway,” Ms. Aadland said. “Most of them have no education,

Toti

it’s just a hobby, and some have learned everything by themselves, and some go to a course and learn. They post pictures here in Facebook, send photos to each other, asking how to do this and that, recipes and they learn from each other.” Indeed, Ms. Chaves inherited her artistic chops from her Nanay’s side, Purificacion “Purie” Riego de Dios of Cotabato City whom she first saw baking a chiffon cake and learned how to mix the batter manually in one direction making mostly marble and chiffon cakes on her Northern Hill electric oven.

The second of 5 siblings (1 sister and 3 brothers), Ms. Chaves inherited her love for cooking from her mom as well, recalling how everyone in the family cooked, and the house specialties including kare kare, bulalo and arroz caldo. The family moved to Cagayan de Oro in 1969 when Ms. Chaves was two because her Tagalog dad Melecio “Miling” Garcia had to move in connection with his job as the operations manager of a local logging firm. She wasn’t particularly interested in cooking cakeistry/ PAGE 11
