This Union

I must say, this December 2015 has been all about taking leaps of faith for me. As a lot of you close to me know, music has always been a great passion of mine - so I took a leap again a few months ago by forming a new band -- after years of not being in one -- called This Union. For my annual Christmas "mix tape" gift, I decided to actually record something and share it because well -- we share music, right? It's a bit of a raw recording, and it ain't perfect, but it's a start: a cover from a band I stumbled upon called The Majical Cloudz (forgive the spelling. haha!). I'm putting us up to all sorts of judgement -- if you don't like it, don't tell me. HAHA! But I sincerely hope you do. Here's to making - and listening to, and sharing! - more music. Merry Christmas all, and peace be with you!! smile emoticon (PS This is for all the people I've taken my musical journey with: the collaborators, the songwriters, the ones I've followed and admired.. thank you for all the music that fills my life)

Tahiti 80

Being a fan boy and cooking for a French band I really love called #Tahiti80. Interesting for me because some of them are vegetarian, so I'm going into less travelled territory for me as a cook. This is a spicy chick pea stew that I'm putting into tacos with some pickled onion. I rather like it - but I hope they do too. Haha! Welcome to Manila, #Tahiti80

A remix tonight -- my lamb adobo, roasted squash, fried potatoes and pickled onions with sour cream and chimichurri on a taco. I take no prisoners! Hope these French dudes like it! 

For the vegetarians: grilled zucchini, roasted mushrooms, grilled corn, fried potatoes, pickled onions. Iz goody! Yay! Por Xavier
