Feast you taste buds on Marriott Hotel Manila's Flavors of Thailand

Thailand is known as one of Asia's shopping mecca and tourist's haven. I will never forget my trip to Thailand with my friends. And the food, it's a bit spicy, but whoa, they're really good.

If you're craving for a pad thai or any Thai food, you don't have to book a ticket to Thailand because Marriott Hotel Manila brings to you the rich and unique flavors of Thailand as Marriott Hotel Manila brings the best of Thai in partnership with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Embassy of Thailand and Thai Airways. From August 1 to 31, satisfy your taste buds with a delicious showcase of authentic Thai dishes by Thai chef Thanathorn Krobsuay flown all the way from one of the most contemporary Marriott properties in Asia, the JW Marriott Bangkok. A Thai local himself, chef Krobsuay shares his sophisticated style and expertise in Thai cooking which never fails to mesmerize guests and capture the palates of discerning gourmands.

Start the adventure with a savory piping hot tom yam goong soup (spicy prawn soup with lemongrass and galangal) that will surely perk up the senses with its sweet and spicy broth. Follow it with Som tum(spicy green papaya salad) a palate stimulating spicy salad starter made of shredded papaya, beans, and dried shrimp. Some of the classic main dishes include Thod mun pla (thai fish cakes with pickled cucumber) which is a marinated fried fish cake with green beans and herbs swathed in sweet and sour sauce, which remains a favorite tasty treat of Thais. Featuring as well is the larb gai(minced chicken salad with mint and ground rice) enhanced with the natural flavors of lime juice and fish sauce. Another favorite is Pad Thai (stir fried noodle with seafood) considered a national dish consists of fried noodles, eggs, been sprouts, shrimp, chicken, and tofu combined with oriental ingredients such as tamarind juice, hot chili, and fish sauce producing a nutty, pungent taste. To end a hot Thai feast, complete the meal with a refreshing kanom thai ruam (selections of Thai royal desserts) that has an amusing sweet and salty balance of tastes. Usually made of coconut milk based or sweet sticky rice, all desserts feature most piquant Asian ingredients and recipes.

Christophen Nolan's Inception Now Showing in IMAX

The dream is real, especially when you see it in IMAX.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Inception directed by the highly acclaimed Christopher Nolan is the most talked about movie of the moment. Everyone’s been buzzing about the film’s mind blowing scenes, exceptional effects, and excellent storyline.

The film starring multiple Oscar nominee Leonardo Di Caprio opened in multiple IMAX screens on its worldwide release last July 15.

"Inception is a film that asks the audience to come on a journey into the human mind – its going to be an incredibly immersive experience, and in IMAX, they are going to get the best version of that…we have done all kinds of things to re-format the film for The IMAX Experience, and as a result, you get enhanced clarity, sound and a closer relationship with the action. I think IMAX is going to be a really amazing way to see Inception." Director Christopher Nolan said in an interview.

IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures International are both confident to bring to audiences a truly immersive and one of a kind movie experience with the release of INCEPTION.

"Chris Nolan has created a film with limitless vision and the kind of rich detail that springs to life on the IMAX screen," said Veronika Kwan-Rubinek, President, Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures International. "As the number of IMAX screens around the world continues to grow, so does the demand for this enhanced movie-going experience, and we are thrilled to supply films like Inception for the IMAX format."

"We are very excited to share this highly anticipated and wildly creative film with IMAX audiences and Christopher Nolan fans, which are increasingly becoming synonymous with one another," said IMAX CEO Richard L. Gelfond. "Chris Nolan's unique vision combined with the talents of Leonardo DiCaprio and the rest of the cast creates the kind of cinematic event that we believe will resonate very well with IMAX moviegoers."

"With a visionary director that knows and understands the power of the IMAX medium, a talented cast lead by a superstar actor and an innovative studio that knows how to communicate the IMAX brand to audiences worldwide, this film has all the key ingredients for an anchor 2010 IMAX release," added Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. "We are so excited with Chris Nolan's return to the IMAX format and look forward to sharing this incredible film with our growing audience worldwide."

The film also stars Oscar® nominee Ellen Page ("Juno"), Oscar® nominee Ken Watanabe ("The Last Samurai"), Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard ("La vie en rose"), Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("500 Days of Summer"), Tom Hardy ("RocknRolla"), Cillian Murphy ("Batman Begins"), Oscar® nominee Tom Berenger ("Platoon") and Academy Award® winner Michael Caine ("The Cider House Rules").
