Cardinal Scene Grad Squad - A Joint Project of Photographers and Student Leaders

CARDINAL SCENE, a commercial and event photography studio in Angeles City established in 2009 by Mr. Cardinal Delos Reyes recently achieved another milestone in their company - the addition of their Grad Squad. 

The company has three main areas which are the Cardinal Scene (for Studio Coverage) , CSP by Cardinal Scene (for Events Coverage, Standard Packages) and of course, the Grad Squad by Cardinal Scene (focuses mainly on graduation coverage). 

Grad Squad is a joint project of photographers and student leaders.They had their soft launch months ago doing the coverage of the graduating students. 

Last October 29, 2018 was their formal launch where they presented their newest ambassadors and ambassadress at the Lewis Grand Hotel in Angeles City. Together in the event were their former partners, the entire Cardinal Scene team and their friends and families. 

Before Grad Squad, Mr. Cardinal was used to the commercial photography setup with all the lighting and everything. Then he came to realize that graduating students also need to look good and feel good so why not offer the same quality to them in a very affordable package. 

So on the next graduation of one of your family members, or friends, recommend Grad Squad to them. Surely they would love to treasure one of the most memorable moments in their life.

Gorda Redefines Fil-Mex Cuisine

This family-owned Fil-Mex restaurant in BGC beautifully marries Filipino and Mexican food. Its hip, plays a great selection of music and is all about serving fusion cuisine that was inspired by their mother’s homey recipes and exotic cocktails. 

As soon as you walk into Gorda, you’ll notice the exposed brick and contemporary design with high ceilings, a cantina, and the eye-catching wall art. The name literally translates to Fat Lady, which we’ll take as an indication that this is the perfect place to get stuffed. And trust me, it’s hard not to when everything from the appetizers to the desserts are loaded with flavors that are worth trying. 

The Mama’s Nachos is a popular starter that’s loaded and comes in two serving sizes. This Spiced Beef Estofado, Trio Local Keso Sauce, Ensalada, and Jalapeno Atchara combined creates a balance between the different textures that will keep you occupied as you wait for the main course. You could also opt for the Breakfast Taquito Sampler that gives your typical taquitos a Pinoy twist with Beef Tapa, Pork Tocino, and Vigan Longanisa used as fillings. 

Gorda also offers Tacos, Quesadillas, Burritos, and Fajitas, but we understand if you’re eager to get straight to the mains. If there’s anything you should order first, it should be the Pollo Inasal Skillet, a Mexican-spiced Marinated Chicken Inasal that comes with Cilantro Sinangag, Roasted Pimiento and Onion, and Homemade Crema. Another unique dish is the Pork a La Parilla that features Grilled Tender Pork Chops, Pineapple Que, and Homemade Refried Beans, with a Kapeng Barako Demi-glace. 

A definite must-visit within BGC, Gorda is located at the 2/F of Uptown Parade.
