One year after it was officially launched in cyberspace, SPOT.ph—the online city guide featuring the latest and the hottest food and dining place around the metro—is reborn!
Adopting a total makeover, the site now covers an extensive array of interesting topics ranging from "Manila life, culture, entertainment, dining, politics, and style, SPOT is your go-to-guide for where to go, what to do, see, eat, buy, and talk about," wrote editor-in-chief Myrza Sison.
Staying true to its vision, SPOT.ph freely explores a potpourri of subjects, like award-wining poet Lourd De Veyra spewing his acerbic wit as he hops from mundane to complex matters through his blog, This Is A Crazy Planets.

In addition, an interesting article features the very popular yet enigmatic television host, Willie Revillame, is a must-read for this week.

The article notes: "Non-fans are puzzled: Why does he have power over the masses when he consistently makes fun of his contestants’ teeth/ feet/ peklat or burol-worthy-looks just to get laughs?
"The objects of his ridicule laugh with him as he laughs at them, as if forgiving him for his insensitive remarks because he’s serving a noble purpose. He’s their savior, the answer to their suffering and strife." Read more.
The newly revamped site intends to keep its readers informed and entertained at the same time without the stiffness we commonly encounter in traditional lifestyle media.
Myrza further says: "More than just a repository of information and numbers, SPOT offers solid, well-written lifestyle features and insightful commentary you've never seen before in the local scene."
