Philippine weaving dates back before the Spanish colonization. The natives weaved using fibers from abaca, pineapple, cotton, and bark cloth. With your support, we are keeping this artform alive for the future generations.
get ya under pink skies i know exactly where we should go 💖
Finally relaunching #AngBuhayLokal ❤
I think the more important thing here is that these past few weeks, I was losing my drive. I was iffy if I wanted to still continue to blog, continue to build this brand. But both family and friends have reminded me of why i started this out in the first place, and how i want it to be a platform for parents, travelers, millennials to learn more about the Philippines!
To gain a new set of eyes for the beauty it possesses. To serve as a place to connect with people, to share experiences and stories - like how can we take care of our country, what places can families go to, how do we keep sane and all that stuff. HAHA!
I have a renewed spirit for #AngBuhayLokal and I just wanna be more active in reaching more people with similar interests. I want it to be more than an open diary of my family's experiences.
We are grounding ourselves to a life that is [somewhat] sustainable, intentional and inspired. The flow of knowledge never stops with us, nor should it stop with you. Throughout our family’s adventures, we welcome the infinite knowledge that the earth provides us, and we want to impart that with anyone and everyone who is willing to learn! ❤ So there you go folks!!
Brought large trays of Bibingkang kanin or Bibingkang Malagkit to two dinner gatherings earlier this week and was psyched to see how much they loved it. Like somebody actually sopped up the sauce with his finger in the tray when he saw there was none left but the sauce hehe 🙈😋🙈. To be fair it was really yummy. No shame in that haha.
The first one was like learning to balance a bike again, because it's been so long since I last made one. I had to guess if I put in too little coconut milk, why was the rice too dry, why is the sauce not thickening etc. The second time, I felt more confident and played around with the sauce making it more yema-like by adding egg yolks and ... cheese!!! sorry kakanin purists 🙈🙈🙈! i have to remind myself to write down what i did to make the glutinous rice either softer or more makunat, or I'd forget it again! one day, maybe I'll write a book about my kakanin exploits in the kitchen and make the cooking of kakanin more accessible to the younger generations. It's actually not that hard. Plus, whenever I make a kakanin I feel like I'm being patriotic 🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭. like I'm doing my part to pass on an important tradition hehe. Anywaysssssss #somanydreamssolittletime
For the mean time, I have new entries for #thekakaninproject which I'm pretty excited about. I do miss shooting and cooking it myself too, but I kinda want to give your submissions the shoutout it deserves first. So come on and send them over. Especially the kakanins not many has even seen or heard of!
Time for another #MusicMonday! We’re feeling all the island vibes in London for a change, we’ve had an entire weekend of sun, unheard of! This week our shout out goes to Gingee (@gingeeworld) who is giving us those summer feels.
Gingee (Marjorie Light) is a DJ, producer and vocalist from LA. Her music is described as a reflection of the sounds and cultures she has been exposed to growing up in L.A. From the percussive rhythms of instruments such as the Filipino Kulintang, kettle drum, and cowbells, to synths, turntables and rapping. Her recent release Island Bloom is definitely becoming the soundtrack to our summer.
Gingee’s track ‘See the Sun’ is on this amazing video by @thevalino who has been capturing #MomentsofMovement in the Philippines. Ever since the series launched in March, we have been glued. Check out the amazing videos capturing an array of dancers and artists in the Philippines. This one is with @lemabee. All the love when the kids get involved! 😍😍
