Need a Caterer in the Greater Batangas Area?

Cesca’s Kitchen Catering started out as a café and branched out to the catering service. Coffee has become more than just a beverage. From its ritualistic beginnings in Ethiopia to the massive proliferation of cafés worldwide, it has evolved into a kind of global culture.

Strange to think that in the 1800s, Lipa, Batangas used to be one of the top exporters of coffee in the world, until our Robusta crops were wiped away by the plant disease called coffee rust.
As a tribute to help preserve the great heritage of the Batangueňos, young entrepreneur Celeste Maralit-Lindog, decided to put up Cesca’s Kitchen & Catering Services (formerly H Kape & Catering Services and was located at Events Centre, Maharlika Highway, Purok II, Brgy. Sico, Lipa City, Batangas which opened last December 20, 2006). Cesca’s new home is found at Phoenix Gas Station, MK Lina St. (Balagbag), San Sebastian, Lipa City, Batangas. A coffee shop and a convenience store that is a first in Lipa, Batangas bringing the café scene closer to people living on the other side of the metro. Cesca’s is said to become the next “it” place in the whole province of Batangas. Cesca’s Kitchen & Catering Services is all about imagination, its coffee’s and cuisines is an art form crafted by the creativity of its owners bound by a common purpose. The mystery of its appeal inevitably unfolds as one experiences not only coffee drinking, but tasting the food in this place.
Both gastronomic and artistic hunger are satisfied once you see their menu, which Celeste conceived, keeping in mind the taste of the Batangueňos but bringing it forward to the modern times. The food at Cesca’s boasts of keeping the true Batangas spirit by using local produce and ingredients such as our signature dish, Sinaing na Tulingan Pasta in Olive Oil. True to its commitment, with unfailing good taste of the food, Cesca’s kitchen staff and Event Manager, will go to great lengths to please its patrons, even altering cooking procedures upon request.
Great coffee, great food and excellent service, a relaxed atmosphere—that is what Cesca’s Kitchen & Catering Services is all about!
Cesca’s Food and Catering Services, which is a sole proprietorship, which has its new address at Events Hub, Big Ben Complex, Mataas na Lupa, Ayala Hiway, Lipa City, Batangas, with its main kitchen facilities, located at Barangay San Felipe, Padre Garcia, Batangas, now concentrates mainly on the Catering Services. With more than 8 years of Catering Service has catered or rendered its services to some of the major events held in the city of Lipa, Batangas.

I got a chance to attend a Photojournalism Workshop organized by Philippine Center for Journalism, Inc. which was held at FSC Forest Complex, Subic Bay Freeport Zone last August 27-31, 2009. This workshop was open for freelance photojournalists, government and corporate photographers and graphic designers and advertising executives. Lectures include basic and documentary photography, trends in photojournalism, photo editing, digital file management, photo story and photo essay development, wire agency photography, design and layout and basic writing for photographers. There will also be guided practical assignments within the lush and deeply forested environment of the Subic forest complex and nearby communities.

We rode the Victory bus at Sampaloc station going to Olongapo and then waited for the ride which would take us to FSC Forest Complex and it turned out the sir Jimmy Domingo was driving the SUV and is one of the lecturers of the workshop and with him was sir Alex Bluyut. Upon reaching FSC Forest Complex (which was already past 12nn) we had our lunch and then went to our sleeping quarters located just beside the activity center and is actually bunk houses of the marines when Subic was still under the US military. The first 2 days of the workshop was all lectures with a little bit of exercises. First a review on Basic Photography with key parts and functions of a digital camera, exposure controls, design and composition which was lectures by Jimmy A. Dimingo, after the lecture we had a bit of exercise applying photography techniques. After a break we had another lecture pertaining to Photojournalism trends and challenges.

The second day was a lecture on Documentary Photography lectured by Alex Baluyut. Case Studies lectured by VJ Villafranca and Paolo Picones. Basic writing for Photographers lectured by Joe Torres. Digital file management lectured by Le-ann Jazul.

On the third day at 7am we went to an Aeta community located at Sitio Kanawan, Barangay Binaritan, Morong, Bataan on how to develop a photo story but to get there we traveled by jeep then crossing a hanging bridge then hiking going up a steep incline for about 20 minutes. We had a blast getting pictures and I was so engrossed talking to Ka Rudy that I almost forgot to take pictures (I got limited photos of him and the community) and by afternoon we headed back to Subic and went to the Mangroove trail and shot some photos. Getting back to the activity center we were task to edit down our photos to 40-50 pictures for the first edit and further editing it down to 8-15 pictures for our photo story and the stressful part was writing a story.

The fourth day was a lecture on Working on wires, new papers and magazine lectured by Luis Liwanag, then we continued with our photo story study. After submitting our studies it was made into a slide show and was shown to all of us at around 9pm and then continued to the SMB night (stopped drinking at 2am).

The final day started late, after the oath taking of the officers of PCP we ate our final lunch at the workshop and lechon was served. Then we were handed out our certificates thus ending our workshop with a final group picture. Then saying our congratulation and goodbyes, carol and me headed to the Subic Yacht Club to get something to eat and take pictures then headed to the Victory Station and headed back to Manila.

here is my photo story study:

KULOT AKO!

Si Ka Rudy (Rodelio Tumandor) na isang Tribal Elder ng mga Mambakun na Kulot, na nakapagasawa ng isang unat, dating nagging rebelde at nanumbalik sa gobyerno at nagging CAFGU at isang marine, ay ipinag lalaban nila ang kanilang karapatan bilang isang katutubo sa lugar ng Sitio Kanawan na pilit silang pinalilipat o pinapaalis ngunit sila ang talagang nauna sa lugar.
