All the people have been spending their freaking time online and I admit I’m one of those digital freaks. I don’t often watch TV and I’m quite selective with the shows I’m watching. There are so many crappy and nonsense shows you see nowadays and even some of the news on TV makes me cringe and spit with disgust. they’re just so full of negativity, crime, morbid videos and exaggerated stories that sometimes, you don’t know if it’s even true anymore.
Well the good news is that, there’s still some intellectual and interesting shows we can watch and it’s coming very soon. These shows are for people who loves inspirational real life stories, art, culture, good food and shows that are brain stimulating.
One of the shows to look forward to is Triple K.
It’s a three segment show (Kalye, Kusina at Kulinaria) that features Review, Travel, Culture, History, Flavors and Versions of food.
KALYE (STREET SMARTS) –Segment host Peru Morena will go around the streets of the featured cities/provinces to discover and feature food found on street stores.
KUSINA (KITCHENATICS)- Main host Prince De Guzman with Reyna ng Kusina Tita Bernie Rojas Fontanilla, stays at the kitchen of the featured restaurant’s specialty of the house and talks about the history and culture of the food.
KULINARYA (CULINARY VERSIONS/CHALLENGES)-Segment host Drew Buenviaje along with the Tikemey Divas will challenge a Karinderia owners/culinary institution/culinary student/celebrity to do a version of the feature of street food to gourmet on their own version.(judge/critic).
It’s not a typical show compared to other “reality cooking shows” that people usually watch on famous channels out there. The concept has been well thought of.and I am so much intrigued with the outcome of the audience reactions and responses as soon as this show is aired.
Very creative costumes too with their superhero aprons. I am so much impressed with Mr Ador Villanueva, Concept and Show Director for Triple K that he brilliantly created this very interactive reality based program that I’m sure all the people will love. Why? because it speaks to the heart of the Filipinos. A program that all of us can learn especially with food and cooking.
The press launch was held at Bernie’s Kitchen located in Cavite City. Mrs Bernie didn’t study culinary but as they say, you don’t need to be a chef to be a good cook. she’s your traditional mother who cooks her food showered with love, and that’s why all the food served to us are just so delicious especially the Bihong Pusit and the Tamales.

Aside from the introductions of the cast of Triple K, they also introduced Edwin Nombre Pamañan, an independent actor and the founder of True Manila—wherein it’s mission is to ensure that street children and their families have their basic needs met, focusing on food, housing and education. He shared his heartwarming story on how it all started with him feeding a kid everyday. Edwin was a homeless child who was helped by a foreign family when they visited Manila during the 1980’s. Throughout their time in the city and along their many visits, they kept feeding and spending time with Edwin, making him feel loved and building a very special bond with him. Eventually they were unable to continue visiting on such a consistent basis, so they decided to keep supporting him emotionally and financially from the US by sending him letters and money. This family instilled a belief in Edwin that anything was possible. They awoke a spark within him to pass the torch, to continue on the generous work that they had started. They fed his passion to help the ones in need.
This family is therefore the reason why True Manila exists, the motivation for Edwin to keep doing to others what was done to him: to be treated with love and respect, to be fed and to be given the opportunity to go to school..
Currently Edwin resides in the same community in Manila, surrounded by those who he supports with the assistance of different volunteers (both local and foreign). Together they make sure action is taken to fight this ongoing crisis. Donations are received and distributed with equity as a priority, so that the different projects succeed.
