    Have you tasted this naturally green rice? It can be munched like how you do for peanuts. There is a festival in Pampanga, particularly in Sta. Rita, where duman is produced. It can be added to ice cream or can be eaten with fresh milk.

    Bibingka is a type of rice cake traditionally made with rice flour, coconut milk, egg and margarine.

    Other delicacies are also rice flour based or galapong such as puto, palitaw, puto bungbong, sapin-sapin, and biko. Though mostly made from similar ingredients, they each have their particular rich taste. Savour the taste!

    Me and my cousins at the base of Mt. Samat Cross. So sad we were not allowed to be at the top as it is still under renovation. The management of the shrine said they will be renovating the elevator of this 92-meter high cross.

    #MtSamatCross

    Mt. Samat, along with the fortified Corregidor Island, had been the site of the most vicious battle in 1942 against the Japanese Imperial Army. On top of this mountain, a memorial shrine complex marked by a giant cross was built in commemoration of the gallant Filipino and American Soldiers who fought during World War 2. The height is 92 meters which symbolizes the 92 days of that war that has been fought.

    Until now, it is the second tallest cross in the world. The tallest is the Holy Cross of the Valley of the Fallen in Spain.

    Narra was declared in 1934 the national tree of the Philippines. This strong hardwood tree symbolizes strength, durability, endurance, and persistence. It resembles the Filipino spirit specifically the strength of character as the Filipinos struggled to attain freedom and independence.
    Many uses of its wood include musical instruments, cartwheels, flooring, carvings, furniture, house columns, and decoratives. It has also medicinal value as it is used for treatment against bladder issues, prickly heat, syphilis, headaches, diarrhea, boils, ulcers, and mouth sores.
    As an environmental benefit, aside from providing shade and protection against erosion, it is a rich source of pollen for bees to produce honey.
    The narra tree is scarce now and so there are efforts to do tree planting in strategic areas. If it really is a must to cut down a narra tree, you need a special permit for that although sadly many constructors and illegal loggers don't mind following the process.
    How can we help? The Department of Environment and Natural Resources provides free narra seedlings. You can simply include tree planting among your social and environmental projects. Trees can save lives!

    #bahaykubo
    Bahay Kubo as an indigenous house to the Philippines is usually made of Nipa or Anahaw for the roofs. They are designed to be steeply pitched to allow the quick flow down of water during the rainy season.
    The walls varies from bamboo mats (sawali), anahaw or nipa. Its posts, and columns are of either bamboo or hardwood. These designs gives a natural cooling effect even during the hot summer season.
    Typically built with large windows or Dungawan to let more air in and natural light.
    Other sections of the house incudes Batalan where dishwashing, lavatory use, cooking, and sometimes bathing area as well. SILID on the other hand is the living area. In larger bahay kubos, there could be SILID where the family can sleep but in smaller versions, the living room serves as the dining and sleeping area as well.
    Bahay kubos until now are still widely used especially in barrios or rural areas.

  • #RepectForElders
    To show respect to the elderly population, there are honorifics before certain people's names, and calling someone older than you by their first name is impolite and rude in the Philippines.
    Loosely, for elder brothers, we call them Kuya and for elder sisters, we call them Ate. The same for elder cousins. We lovingly call the youngest as "bunso." For even more specific appellations for each sibling, refer to how we call each other traditionally:
    ** Toto - youngest brother
    ** Diko- second eldest brother (rooted in di or ji, depending on the Chinese/Japanese bent)
    ** Sangko - third eldest brother (came from the Japanese sansei, third in line)
    ** Kuya - eldest brother (from Chinese ordinal "co")
    ** Nene - youngest sister
    ** Ditse - second eldest sister (rooted in di or ji, depending on the Chinese/Japanese bent)
    ** Sanse - third eldest sister (came from the Japanese sansei, third in line)
    ** Ate - eldest sister (came from the word Aitche, or "ichi" meaning "first" in Japanese or Hokien)
    This actually we inherited from our Chinese and Japanese interactions a very long time ago.
