Fans are called "paypay", "pamaypay", "abaniko (abanico)" in the Philippines.

The abaniko, together with the baro't saya, was once a part of a lady's attire. Read about the various ways of using and holding the abaniko may convey different meanings.

--------

Si la mujer escondía los ojos detrás del abanico, estaba diciendo a su interlocutor que lo quería.

If the woman hid her eyes behind the fan, she was saying to her would-be suitor that she loved him.

Si colocaba el abanico sobre la mejilla izquierda, la respuesta era: No; y si lo posaba sobre la derecha, la respuesta era: Sí.

If she placed the fan on her left cheek, the answer was: No; and if she placed it on the right cheek the answer was: Yes.

Si la mujer se abanicaba con rapidez, significaba que estaba comprometida; y si lo hacía lentamente, le transmitía que estaba casada.

If the woman fanned herself quickly it meant that she was engaged; and if she fanned herself languidly, she indicated that she was married.

How disasters affect women
by/Isabelle H. Lacson Published Mar 09, 2015

Disasters do not discriminate women. It is the institutions they hit that discriminate, which ultimately increases a woman’s vulnerability and allows for disproportionate impacts.

WWW: Women on the Web are not Welcome
by/Ana P. Santos Published Jan 29, 2015
Authorities either underestimate the threat that technology-related violence presents or do not have a full understanding of how the pervasiveness of such violence causes psychological and emotional distress.
According to Take back the Tech, a collaborative campaign against on-line forms of violence, about 95% of on-line harassment in the form of text, images and videos are targeted at women.
“A liberal interpretation of RA 9262 can include electronic violence as a form of psychological abuse,” said Claire Padilla, executive director of legal NGO, EngendeRights.
But one limitation of RA 9262 is that it is predicated on a dating relationship. You must be dating, having sex with or married to the perpetrator.

Pia Cayetano: Glass ceiling, not brick wall, for PH women
Rappler talks to Senator Pia Cayetano about gender equality and women empowerment in the Philippines. Published on Aug 31, 2014

The women's rights advocate explains why the country is lagging behind United Nations Millennium Development Goals on having enough women leaders in government, and reducing the number of women who die of childbirth.

She says, "“We do not have the brick wall but we have the glass ceiling.”

“That glass ceiling was put in place by traditions and customs, which basically tell us all that women are the primary caregivers in the home. This is the number one deterrent for women stepping up and taking positions both in government and the private sector, and I say this is worldwide. More regional and Filipino is the thinking that, ‘Oh, you should really stay at home.’”

Hindi Kita Malilimutan - Song for the dead

Every year, Filipinos gather with their families to pay respect to their departed loved ones. As with the other stages of life, death is traditionally commemorated through customs and rituals that usually involve music. In recent times, popular love songs are being sung or played during funerals as people say goodbye to their departed. Perhaps the most popular is Hindi Kita Malilimutan popularized by Basil Valdez and composed by Manoling Francisco, SJ in 1979, with lyrics based on the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament.

CREMATION STILL A BURNING ISSUE
By Cherie del Rio

The traditional burial practices have been honored and observed by generations after generations. There was simply no choice but to pick out a casket, buy a lawn lot wherein to bury the dead, and pay the necessary maintenance fees or whatever related expenses there may be in memorial parks. But when modern cremation services were introduced into the country, there came another practical option.

Manobo Udol Dance

The Manobo / Manuvu are a large group of Austronesian people from Mindanao. This is the Udol dance, named after the slit drum that accompanies it. The mesmering rhythm of the udol is believed to call the spirits of the deceased (fallen warriors) to show them (the dancers/performers) where their remains are so they could bring them home and have a decent burial. (daghang salamat SaiaoPinoi) The dancers provide the Udol, Utomay and the Patawagay rhythms themselves as they take turns to dance. This film was taken by anthropologist Robert Garfias in the 1960s.

The Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery

is maintained by National Historical Commission of the Philippines and is open to the public from Tuesday to Sunday between 8 am-4 pm.

in Laguna is the only one of its kind in the Philippines - it is a burial site located inside, or more accurately, beneath a church. This church is rich in history - it was built and designed for funeral mass in 1845 by the Franciscan priest Fr. Vicente Velloc. He also directed the construction of an underground graveyard 15 feet below the church.

The Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery is considered a national historical landmark because its underground crypt was used as a secret meeting place in 1896 by Filipino revolutionaries or Katipuneros, members of the KKK. During the Filipino-American War, Filipino patriots also used the underground cemetery to formulate their battle plans and to seek shelter. It also became a safehouse for Filipino guerillas during World War II.

Actually this is originally called as barot saya and because it is a philippine costume it was coined filipiniana. This dress is no where to be found because it can only be seen in the Philippines.
This filipiniana has different kinds - from the baro at saya, then evolved to María Clara, where the panuelo on the neck was added, then this María Clara evolved to traje de mestiza, where the half filipino half Spanish, simply called mestiza are the one whose commonly wearing it. This traje de mestiza has a featured of butterfly sleeves but remained its panuelo on the neck (look at the V-shape), then it evolved as terno the modern filipino dress where the panuelo was removed but maintained its butterfly sleeves. Now it can be seen with different kind of designs!

Maria Clara gown

The Maria Clara gown is a traditional gown worn by women in the Philippines. This Filipino dress takes its name from María Clara, the mestiza protagonist of the national epic Noli Me Tangere, penned in 1890 by Filipino national hero José Rizal.

The Maria Clara dress originated from the conventional baro't saya of early Filipino women.

María Clara

whose full name is María Clara de los Santos, is the mestiza heroine in Noli Me Tangere, a novel by José Rizal, the national hero of the Republic of the Philippines.

Fans are called "paypay", "paipay", "pamaypay", "abaniko (abanico)" in the Philippines.

The abaniko, together with the baro't saya, was once a part of a lady's attire. Read about the various ways of using and holding the abaniko may convey different meanings.

--------

Si la mujer escondía los ojos detrás del abanico, estaba diciendo a su interlocutor que lo quería.

If the woman hid her eyes behind the fan, she was saying to her would-be suitor that she loved him.

Si colocaba el abanico sobre la mejilla izquierda, la respuesta era: No; y si lo posaba sobre la derecha, la respuesta era: Sí.

If she placed the fan on her left cheek, the answer was: No; and if she placed it on the right cheek the answer was: Yes.

Si la mujer se abanicaba con rapidez, significaba que estaba comprometida; y si lo hacía lentamente, le transmitía que estaba casada.

If the woman fanned herself quickly it meant that she was engaged; and if she fanned herself languidly, she indicated that she was married.

Piña

is a fiber made from the leaves of a pineapple plant and is commonly used in the Philippines. Since piña is from a leaf, the leaf has to be cut first from the plant. Then the fiber is pulled or split away from the leaf. Most leaf fibers are long and somewhat stiff. Each strand of the piña fiber is hand scraped and is knotted one by one to form a continuous filament to be handwoven and then made into a piña cloth.

Born in Bataan province, fashion designer Oliver Tolentino became the first Philippines-based designer to expand to the United States when he opened a Los Angeles boutique on Melrose Avenue in 2009. Within a year, he was chosen as one of nine finalists in the Motion Picture Academy's Oscars Designer Challenge at Downtown Los Angeles Fashion Week. Eco-friendly materials have become an important part of Oliver's fashion sense, and he promotes his native country's fabrics internationally by including them in his collections. "My country has been green long before it was fashionable," he explains. "The Philippines has been turning pineapple leaves and abaca plant leaves into fabric for hundreds of years; so out of national pride, I want to show how elegant 'green' can be. ... Piña, what we call the fabric from pineapple fiber, is naturally off-white with an organza texture. It creates vintage-looking gowns, but also can be dyed vibrant colors."

Shoe of the nation address

by/George P. Moya Published Oct 04, 2014

There are now only over 100 listed companies in Marikina’s shoe industry. It had dramatically decreased by tenfold from its glory days in the 1970s, where there were over 1,000 listed companies in Marikina’s shoe industry.
Floods of change came wave after wave in Marikina and its shoe industry nearly drowned.
“This industry is dying. We really have to help them get back in business,” says Marikina Mayor Del de Guzman

It's just fitting that Marikina City, being popularly known as the shoe capital of the Philippines , houses the Shoe Museum.

We Say Mabuhay - Anthem of the President of the Philippines

'We Say Mabuhay,' composed by the legendary bandmaster and orchestra leader, the late Tirso Cruz, Sr., is the anthem of the President of the Republic of the Philippines.

Unlike 'Hail to the Chief,' the march primarily associated with the President of the United States, 'We Say Mabuhay' is not that well-known.

'Mabuhay' is played during military and government ceremonies in which the President is in attendance; the arrival of the President at any given event and right after the president-elect is sworn in during inaugurals that occur every six years as prescribed in the 1987 Constitution of the Philippines.

March of the President of the Philippines - AFP Military Honors

As the President of the Republic of the Philippines arrives for any event that is affiliated with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), this tune, unofficially entitled 'March of the President,' is played by the military band with a twenty-one cannon salute. The march is mostly played before the President greets all the service commanders/branches of the AFP in what is known as the 'Trooping of the Line.'

*Audio derived from the Military Honors for the Fifteenth President of the Philippines, President Benigno 'Noynoy' S. Aquino III on the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the AFP - Armed Forces of the Philippines; and the 2004 Presidential Inauguration of the Fourteenth President of the Philippines, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Constructing a National Identity Through Music

by/Ramon P. Santos, Ph. D

The late nineteenth century in the Philippines history marks the most dramatic, if not the most dynamic, phase in the long process of constructing a national consciousness. This perception is a result of a political and social events of the period, and it is equally reinforced by the expressive cultures of an emerging Filipino society. The arts -- literature, theater, music, dance, architecture, and painting -- provided effective channels for the expression of the Filipino psyche, taste and social behavior.

by/Ramon P. Santos, Ph. D

There are two distinct repertoires in Philippine oral traditions: 1) musical forms that evolved from Southeast Asian cultures, usually referred to as indigenous traditions, and 2) musical forms that developed in rural Christian communities, more commonly known as folk music. They may be further categorized into vocal, instrumental or a combination of both.

Hindi Kita Malilimutan - Song for the dead

Every year, Filipinos gather with their families to pay respect to their departed loved ones. As with the other stages of life, death is traditionally commemorated through customs and rituals that usually involve music. In recent times, popular love songs are being sung or played during funerals as people say goodbye to their departed. Perhaps the most popular is Hindi Kita Malilimutan popularized by Basil Valdez and composed by Manoling Francisco, SJ in 1979, with lyrics based on the Book of Isaiah from the Old Testament.

Pilita Corrales born also in Cebu was only two years old then, a mestiza, (of Spanish and Austronesian) ancestry. It was Pilita's impeccable rendition of the song in the 1960's that made it so popular and labeled by some as the cultural anthem of the Cebuanos.

Kulibit - kollitong - saluray - togo or takumbu and many more local names

The kulibit is a type of an idiochord tube zither. Narrow lengthwise cuts are made on the surface of a bamboo tube. A wedge is inserted under the cuts forming two strings out of the bamboo itself. The player holds the bamboo tube vertically in front of the body, supporting it with the palms of both hands. The thumb, middle and index fingers pluck the strings in alteration to produce short melodic ostinati.

It is the zither played by the Kalinga people of the Philippines. The instrument consists of a long tube of bamboo which has been slit to allow five or six strands of the bamboo husk to be played as "strings". The instrument is also played by the Bontoc and Tinguian people who call it the kollitong, and the Manobo and Tiruray people, who call it the saluray, togo or takumbu.

Angklung

is a musical instrument made of bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand strikes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound. Each of three or more performers in an angklung ensemble play just one note or more, but all together complete melodies are produced.

The angklung was first invented in West Java, Indonesia; with a possibility of cultural transmittance to various other places such as Malaysia & the Philippines over the course of several centuries.

Local Maguindanaon musicians play traditional music

on kulintang, gandingan and agong (assortment of gongs) in Al Jamelah Weaving Center, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao. Overshadowed by corruption and impunity currently magnified by the press, “Maguindanao" stands for a rich and proud centuries-old heritage that forms the multifarious fabric of Philippine culture. The highlight of visiting Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao (near Cotabato City) was witnessing an impromptu performance of traditional Maguindanaon music at Al Jamelah Weaving Center, known for its handwoven 'inaul' textile. The Maguindanao people are a Muslim ethnolinguistic group belonging to the much larger Moro peoples of Mindanao. Cultural worker Akmad Wampa (left) heads a community dance troupe for underprivileged and out-of-school youth. Like all the other indigenous cultures in the Philippines, Maguindanao culture and arts are threatened by modernization and, sadly, the indifference of younger generations to continue traditional knowledge and practices. - Look also the above link

The Darangen is an ancient epic song that encompasses a wealth of knowledge about the Maranao people who live in the Lake Lanao region of Mindanao. This southernmost island of the Philippine archipelago is the traditional homeland of the Maranao, one of the country's three main Muslim groups.

Although other variations exist among the Maranao ethnic communities living in other areas, among the Maguindanao ethnic group, and Manobo groups to the Pacific Coast. The one in Lanao del Sur is considered the most definitive.

Pangalay

(also known as Daling-Daling) in is the traditional “fingernail” dance of the Tausug people of the Sulu Archipelago and Sabah. This dance is the most distinctively Asian of all the Southern Philippine dances because dancers must have dexterity and flexibility of the shoulders, elbows, and wrists – movements that strongly resemble those of “kontaw silat,” a martial art common in the Malay Archipelago. The Pangalay is performed mainly during weddings or other festive events. The male equivalent of the Pangalay is the Pangasik and features more martial movements, while a pangalay that features both a male and female dancer is called Pangiluk. Neighboring peoples call this type of dance, Umaral or Igal Igal, and they sometimes use bamboo castanets as substitutes for long fingernails

Dugso (meaning 'dance') is a ceremonial dance among the Manobo people in Bukidnon, Agusan and Misamis Oriental . The Dugso (also Dugsu) is usually performed during important occasions like kaliga (feasts) or kaamulan (tribal gatherings). As a sacrifice dance rite, the dugso overlaps as a thanksgiving of a good harvest, healing of the sick, and the overall well-being of the community. As a supplication of the divine deities, it also dispels malevolent spirits while assuring sustenance, victory in battle, and the blessing of a newly opened field. The close association with the pagpagayok bird is representative of the colorful headdress and the bells around the ankle is regarded as the best music to the ears of the spirits.

The Sua-Ku-Sua or "my pomelo tree" is a dance that likens the sua´s gentle leaves, attractive fruits, its fragrance and slender body to that of a lady. Performed by couples, the Sua-Ku-Sua dancers make use of two white fans that are swayed, as if to signify the swaying of the leaves of the sua tree while singing along with the music in their rice powder-covered faces.

The Itik-Itik dance is popular among the Visayan

At one baptismal party in the Surigao del Norte province, a young lady named Kanang (the nickname for Cayetana), considered the best dancer and singer of her time, was asked to dance the Sibay. She became so enthusiastic and spirited during the performance that she began to improvise movements and steps similar to the movements of itik, the duck, as it walks with short, choppy steps and splashes water on its back while calling to its mate. The people liked the dance so much that they all imitated her. There are six separate foot sequences in the series of Itik-Itik steps.

The Gayong-gayong

is a playful Muslim dance which originated from the province of Aklan on the island of Panay in Capiz. In most rural areas that have get-togethers, they opt to use this dance which gives so much joy and pleasure – both to the dancers and the audience. The story behind the dance states that “Gayong” is a pet name given to Leodegario. The legend and the words of the song tell us that Maisong (pet name of Dalmacio) and Gayong went to a feast which celebrates the death of a townsmate. Masiong was known to have a healthy appetite. He found himself choking on a piece of Adobo and cried out: “Gayong! Gayong!” He was calling out to his friend for help. He needed Gayong to remove the bone of the Adobo that was stuck in his throat. The dance depicts Maisong’s fondness for feasts in his province. The result of his gluttony, however, was help up to a lively ridicule. This dance contributes to so much merriment in representing to the feast-goers’ effort to try and find aid for the choking Maisong. - Remark 2 videos in the album

The high pitched clicking of the bamboo clickers are supposed to represent melancholy wails. The slow portion of the dance is in fact named patay (death) or desmayo (fainting) that is performed to a very slow marcha funebre. The same dance figure is found in another Ilocano dance, the Ti Liday (which in Ilocano means 'sorrow' or grief-stricken') The Jota Moncadeña similar to other Filipinized versions of the Spanish jota is literally mixe-up in flavor. The dance combines Spanish and Ilocano dance steps and music.

Ragragsakan

is an adaptation of a tradition in which Kalinga women gather and prepare for a budong, or peace pact.
The Kalinga borrowed the beautiful word ragragsakan from the Ilocano, which means "merriment." The two biggest occasions for a ragragsakan in a Kalinga village are for the homecoming of successful head takers and the culmination of peace-pact between warring tribes. In this dance, Kalinga maidens balance labba baskets on their heads, wave colorful tribal blankets, and sing short salidumay songs as they snake through the terrace dikes and skip through breaks in the path.
This dance portrays the walk of the industrious Kalinga women, carrying water pots on their heads and wearing the colorful hand-woven "blankets of life" around their necks. Their walk imitates the climb up the Rice Terraces in the Mountain Provinces of the Philippines.
Ragragsakan was discovered by Ramon Obusan in Lubuagan, Kalinga province among the Kalinga people. Ragragsakan came from the ILOCANO word "ragsak" which means "happy".

Preserving the tradition of heirloom rice in the Cordilleras

by Jodesz Gavilan Posted on 10/04/2014

Heirloom rice varieties go beyond the usual type of rice we see on our dinner tables. They represent the culture of the Cordilleras and have become the lifeblood of their farming tradition.
According to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), heirloom rice varieties are more flavorful, aromatic, and have exceptional nutritional value when cooked.
The heirloom rice varieties, the product of the terraces, are considered to be an important fixture in the lives of farmers in several areas in CAR.
Staying true to the name, these varieties of rice are passed from generation to generation and are grown by families in their small ancestral lands.

Why commercial rice is not always better

Buying more expensive commercial rice variants may not always be the best option, as experts insist that commercial rice and those from the National Food Authority (NFA) are technically the same.

Safe Water to All

Poor water quality has large economic and quality of life costs, in terms of health impacts and foregone revenues. According to the Philippine government's monitoring data, just over 36 percent of the country's river systems are classified as sources of public water supply and that up to 58 percent of groundwater sampled is contaminated with coliform and needs treatment. Approximately 31 percent of illnesses monitored for a five-year period were also caused by water-borne sources, and many areas are experiencing a shortage of water supply, during the dry season.

Happyland meal: Kaldereta a la pagpag
by/George P. Moya Posted on 04/11/2015

Smoke fills the kitchen of Norberto Lucion’s eatery. He’s still busy preparing the house specialty, but a few people have asked for his kaldereta.
Norberto is peeling the meat off about a dozen buckets of chicken. They’re part Jollibee chicken joy and part KFC. He says he gets them from a regular supplier.

The buckets of chicken come from a “pagpagan,” a place in the dumpsite of Happyland, where recyclable materials are separated from biodegradables. Plastic spoons and forks, drinking cups, and food cartons, end up being sold at a junk shop. Some of the food in the trash may also end up being “recycled.”
Leftovers from fast food chains are called pagpag, from the Filipino word that means, “to shake off.” Dirt is literally shaken off from food found in dumpsters. They are eaten again. They are also sold. Norberto buys them for P20 (US$0.45) per bucket
