Lumiere (Makati, Philippines)

Next time you’re in Manila, drop by my sister’s art gallery/French restaurant: Lumiere ( – they just opened last November (the URL was my Christmas gift to her)

Traditional French food… cutting-edge Digital Art (video)… Photography – all located in arguably the best art space in the Philippines (dead center of Makati, the location of the former Luz Gallery)

If you go, tell’em Rina’s baby brother sent you – she doesn’t think I’m supportive of her efforts. Hey, just because I don’t understand Art doesn’t mean I don’t care. But Food I do understand and it is absolutely great food.
