"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

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.

Philippine Culture and Mano Po

In the Philippines, children are taught to respect their elders. One way of expressing respect is by "kissing" the right hand of an older person when you greet them. Several symbolic ways in which respect is given to elders is in the use of language by calling older Filipinos “Po” and older siblings, cousins and family friends “Kuya” and “Atee”.

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.

Can Catholics Be Cremated?
In Search of a Catholic Cremation Tradition

May, 1963 began a new era in Catholic cemetery ministry. As the Second Vatican Council explored the many ways to respond to the faithful seeking a new look for ancient rituals, a statement allowing cremation for any sound reason was issued. Forty-three years later, the Catholic community is still seeking appropriate methods to implement evolving traditions. This publication explores changes to Catholic funeral customs as they are currently developing.

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.

THE PHILIPPINES NATIONAL COSTUME

This is the traditional clothing of the filipino, its one of the unique feminine and simply beautiful national costume in Asia.
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.

A proud Filipino designer, wrap artist and advocate of sustainable fashion, Dita Sandico-Ong has been in the ethical fashion business for 26 years—promoting Filipino fashion, while helping poor communities by giving them sustainable livelihood.

“I probably will not be a model who wears the clothes on the runway.
That's what I said when I was young whenever my mother brings me to watch the fashion shows. Then, I’ll see the designer, the last person who receives all the applause after the show. I told myself, I want to be the fashion designer. I want to be the person who do the final bow” ~ Dita Sandico-Ong said.

Like iridescent butterfly wings, Dita Sandico Ong wraps the world with wonder!

Her ingenious use of banana and other indigenous plant fibers imaginatively interwoven with traditional and ethnic Filipino fabrics has continually won for her a loyal following from across the continents for more than two decades now.

Lizanne Cua: "I'm always inspired usually by the future." - "Usually I'm a big sci-fi fan" - "I love Star-Trek, I love the idea of possibilities, about things that are not present yet but can come." - "The first thing that I do is be inspired by what is not here." - "What can be improved upon." - "I believe that each person should be able to find within themselves the strength to be who they are." - "To be who they are in the most positive way" - "And that's what I want to encourage." - "Each of my clothes is a series of questions, they're not statements." - "It doesn't say, 'The reason why they're minimal?... it's because they're a series of questions." - "Each outfit, when you look at them coming out of the runway, I'd like you to think: This is a question. And it's asking, 'Who are you?' - "Complete the sentence" - If the world was ending and I was running through the streets, my final look would be "My boots, leggings, and my signature black outfit. I would have my Caftan jacket on and maybe like a black shift dress. That would be very comfortable running through the streets. My hair would also look like this, pulled back. That would be my look"

Remark this is an album in the sub-album "Fashion Designers, their works & organizations and Fashion Shows" in the main-album "National, traditional & Cultural Attire - Then and now"

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

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

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.

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

Coconut water is good for people with kidney problems. One Filipino doctor claimed: “two glasses of fresh buko juice every day can reduce one’s chance of having kidney or ureter stones.”

”According to an old legend, coconut is God’s gift to the lazy man. “He sleeps in the shade of the tree, is awakened when a nut falls, drinks the milk, and eat some of the meat. He then feeds the rest of the meat to the chickens and cattle, which produce eggs and milk and meat, respectively. The leaves provide thatch for the roof and walls of his coconut hut, and are also woven into hats, baskets and mats.”

Tablea Tsokolate or Cacao Chocolate

What is tablea tsokolate and what makes this drink distinctive from other hot chocolate?

Tablea is a Spanish word meaning tablet, and tsokolate is a Filipino word meaning chocolate. It is a thick hot chocolate specially made from cacao balls. The tablea can also be a thick disk or flat, and even in square form. But the balls are the most popular form made, and is considered as one of Batangas delicacies.

Look the article with recipe as pdf  HERE

Tsokolateng tablea (Filipino hot chocolate drink)

It’s so funny that when you Google “tablea,” most of the Filipino websites that appear in the search results pages say that tsokolateng tablea translates to “cacao chocolate.” Huh? Chocolate is made from cacao so “cacao chocolate” is redundant. Tablea refers to blocks of cacao which, in Filipino cuisine, are heated with milk to make a hot chocolate drink. My grandparents used to serve this hot drink on Christmas Eve. My mother-in-law introduced me to the Antonio Pueo brand of tablea.

Antonio Pueo’s Chocolate Tableas

Nothing beats a hot rich chocolate especially the ones made the old fashioned way with Antonio Pueo’s Chocolate Tablea used for this chocolate drink.

The story of Antonio Pueo Chocolates has its beginning in historical Intramuros, the old Walled City of Manila in the early part of the 20th Century. Its founder was Jose Maria Pueo, a 17 year old Spanish immigrant who arrived in the Philippines armed with the knowledge of chocolate manufacturing which he learned from his Spanish godfather, who was also a friar.

Thick & Rich Filipino Hot Chocolate (Tablea Tsokolate)

A traditional Filipino holiday drink

Tsokolate eh (cho-koh- lah-teh - eh) or tsokolate-ah (cho-koh-lah-teh-ah) sound like tongue twisters but they are actually two types of a hot chocolate drink in the Philippines.

Hot chocolate is definitely on everyone's comfort food list but for most Filipinos. I presume, nothing is as comforting as a cup of our native hot Tsokolate (chocolate, sometimes called Tsokolate Eh or Tsokolate Ah), made from ground Tablea or Cacao Chocolate Discs/Tablets. Traditionally served on Christmas and New Years' Eves but is also available all year round

Hot Chocolate - Cacao Filipina

A taste of Filipino history in a cup of hot chocolate was the favored drink during the Golden Age of Old Manila, Philippines. Introduced by the Spaniards in the 17th Century, "Tsokolate Eh" became the most favored breakfast and snack drink among the 'Illustrado' class and eventually became one of the most sought after hot drinks by the masses. Now available through Julian Gourmet Corp. and/or its outlets and distributors across Metro Manila, Japan and Europe. Mr. Martinez can be contacted through renato.s.martinez@gmail.com.

To the hardy-drinking rural folk, lambanog is "THE" Philippine alcoholic beverage – the arrack of the masa
Lambanog

is wine made from coconut. Lambanog is famous for its potency that normally carries about 80 to 90 proof variations. It is mostly produced in the Quezon Province, Philippines. It has been passed down throughout generations of coconut plantation farmers. The process involves collecting the sap from the coconut flower, similar to rubber tree tapping. The sap is then cooked and fermented to become tuba, a popular coconut toddy. The tuba is then distilled to make lambanog.

BASI comes from sugarcane extract and samak, a plant commonly grown in the Ilocos region.

The juice from sugarcane stalks collected and boiled in large, open ketles. The brew is poured into earthen jars (burnays) and once it reaches room temperature, the samak leaves, bark and fruit are added. The mixture is stirred and poured into a jar that is tightly covered with banana leaves to allow fermentation. After the aging period, the basi is then transferred to bottles. Basi is the official drink of the Guling-Guling festival merrymakers because of its enervating effect.

Rags to Riches - The Filipino Women Turning Rags into High Fashion

14 January 2013. In the slums of Manila, a determined group of women are literally turning rags to riches. In a city where the gap between rich and poor is clear to see, this pioneering new project brings the two closer together.

Taking leftover fabric from clothing factories before weaving them into rugs and handbags, 'Rags to Riches' products have become the latest fashion accessory in Manila's high-end malls. It's founder, 27-year-old Reese Fernandez, says her business works to "empower women" in the local community, "bringing back the dignity of the people". The women, many of whom used to live on a rubbish dump, now earn an income comparable to that of a nurse in the Philippines.

MichaelRogge wrote: Yes, I am very sure that this was taken at La Flor de la Isabela, Inc., which was a sister company of Compania General de Tabacos de Filipinas or Tabacalera. It is sad that La Flor was sold by Tabacalera to a chinese company some 15 years ago and they have relocated far from the original site. When I retired from Tabacalera in 1998 I have lost contact of La Flor, so I don't know if these girls are still with La Flor or are still alive.

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.

Pineapple leaf fibre fabric dates back to hispanic times

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."

National Artist Abdulmari Asia Imao

Abdulmari Imao is perhaps the most “Asian” of National Artists for the Visual Arts. Born and raised in Sulu, Imao celebrates his Mindanaoan heritage by drawing inspiration from Tausug and Maranaw art and lore, and from the richness of Southeast Asian mythological traditions. With his consistent and successful use of folk themes, myths and legends, his work strongly links Filipino, Malay and Indonesian cultures together.

Imao creates and assumes, both with his sculptures and paintings, Southeast Asian archetypes. His most familiar motif, for example, the sarimanok, is essentially a link to that story of the rooster in the first of seven heavens.

Abdulmari Asia Imao is the first Moro, and the only one to date, to be honored as National Artist of the Philippines. Named National Artist for Sculpture in 2006, he articulates Philippine Muslim art and culture through his work not only as a sculptor but also as a painter, photographer, ceramist, documentary film maker, cultural researcher, and writer.

Camille dela Rosa

In her early career, Camille produced spontaneously and exhibited her gardens, churches, landscapes, flowers, portraits, nudes, people in various endeavors, and her abstracts. She was tagged as the "Youngest impressionist painter in the Philippines". Yet suddenly in her 8th year as artist, she became restless and an urge to get out of the doldrums besieged her. She felt the gnawing call to unravel her real psyche. By the year 2009, Camille surprised the art scene when she completely departs from those hedonistic or pleasant to the senses subjects and explore the surreal, the morbid, the mechanical, and the unknown.

1942 Born December 1 in Caloocan, Rizal, eldest of five children of Alfonso Paras Mananquil, Sr. of Pampanga and Gloria Malicdem Castillo of Pangasinan.

Romeo C. MananQuil met an unpaintable culture shock when he decided to relocate his family to Canada in 1985. Everything was alien to him. And he was an alien to everybody. He landed a job as a visual artist - his passport to that subcontinent covering 9,922.33 sq. km. However, he had to grapple with nostalgia. All that he could do to connect with the old country was to reminisce his happy and successful life and career in the third world country of his birth.

Philippine Graffiti Art

Filipino graffiti artists tend to be very polite. Usually, in other countries, graffiti art is done on the sly on walls where it shouldn't be, and the artists do it when no one's looking to escape arrest.

But in the Philippines,

it is done on broken down walls of old buildings which no one would care about anyway. Suddenly the abandoned walls become special because someone, or perhaps a crew, used these walls as a canvas. Just look at this piece, the amazing movement on it makes this the beginnings of what could be a beautiful mural.

Ferdinand finished his studies at the University of the Philippines, Diliman, with degrees in BS Psychology and BS Civil Engineering. With no formal training in the arts, he has been nurtured in the aesthetics of fine arts since childhood with the mentoring of his artist-father and members of the Philippine art world.

National Artist Abdulmari Asia Imao

Abdulmari Imao is perhaps the most “Asian” of National Artists for the Visual Arts. Born and raised in Sulu, Imao celebrates his Mindanaoan heritage by drawing inspiration from Tausug and Maranaw art and lore, and from the richness of Southeast Asian mythological traditions. With his consistent and successful use of folk themes, myths and legends, his work strongly links Filipino, Malay and Indonesian cultures together.

Imao creates and assumes, both with his sculptures and paintings, Southeast Asian archetypes. His most familiar motif, for example, the sarimanok, is essentially a link to that story of the rooster in the first of seven heavens.

Abdulmari Asia Imao is the first Moro, and the only one to date, to be honored as National Artist of the Philippines. Named National Artist for Sculpture in 2006, he articulates Philippine Muslim art and culture through his work not only as a sculptor but also as a painter, photographer, ceramist, documentary film maker, cultural researcher, and writer.

Juan Sajid Imao

multi-awarded sculptor, (son of the National Artist Abdulmari Asia Imao) represents a story with each artwork that he creates. This is particularly true for his collection, Open Endings.

Gabriel Imutan Barredo

is a sculptor who is known for his works to bear a relation with painting in their linear refinement and rich imagery. He was born on 6 October 1957 in Manila. He studied sculpture at the University of Santo Tomas.

His career as a sculptor made its mark when he held his first one-person show at the Gallery Genesis at the Megamall in 1993. Barredo’s sculptural technique is not of the conventional type. He uses found objects such as rods of electric fan covers, broken particles of car windshields, wood, paper, wrought-iron, antique radios, coconut husks, bottle caps, bed springs, fire-hose coils, conveyor belts, wooden beads, computer and refrigerator parts, and cement grinder as elements of the sculptural form of his works.

Asphalt by Gabriel Barredo - Art Fair Philippines 2013

Remark this is an album in the sub-album "Woodcarvers, Sculptors etc. and their works" in the main-album "Painters, Woodcarvers, Sculptors - etc. and their works"

Asphalt as the eye can see: Taking centerstage as Art Fair Philippines’ special exhibit is “Asphalt,” a rambling installation from sculptor Gabriel Barredo, an intriguing, fantastical folly imbued with the amazing creative and mechanical genius of the artist. MANILA, Philippines - Asphalt is commonly used to cover streets, fill out potholes and cover fissures. Around 625 BC, this material was already being used in Babylon for building roads. The word has a Greek origin which means “secure” — roughly interpreted as to avert collapse or to thwart a fall. Romans on the other hand changed the Greek’s asphaltos to asphaltus, which is their caulking element for baths and reservoirs. Interestingly enough, Gabriel Barredo’s kinetic installation commissioned by Art Fair Philippines is titled “Asphalt.” It is 30 feet in length and is composed of a number of elaborate sculptures. Why “Asphalt”? “Why not?” says Barredo. “I thought of a word that could convey darkness, grime, dirt and detachment all at the same time.”
