EVENT: Kultura, Musika ... Saya


DOT Initiates Fun Activities in Intramuros: "Kultura ... Musika ... Saya!" Kicks-off at Maestranza

The Department of Tourism (DOT) will be holding various fun activities in Intramuros in line with its “It's More Fun in the Philippines" campaign through the Intramuros Redevelopment Project. As a project kick-off, a free admission concert night dubbed as the Kultura...Musika...Saya! featuring "Intramuros Rocks" will be held on 05 July 2013, Friday at the Maestranza Park, Intramuros, Manila.


The musical extravaganza will present different genres of music featuring famous bands and artists including Shamrock, Spirit of 67 and Pilipinas Got Talent finalist Zilent Overload. Aside from the concert, adding a more festive atmosphere will be affordable food stalls and bazaars offering local handicrafts, tribal arts and other novelty items within the newly restored Maestranza Park. The venue, also called Almacenes Curtain Wall, is situated right beside the historic Pasig River and was a former storehouse and soldier’s quarter during the Spanish time.

The Intramuros Rocks at Maestranza Park is a pilot activity of the many programs and events lined-up to happen in the walled city. The project aims to promote cultural appreciation and heritage awareness to the public, most especially the youth, and to revive Intramuros’ grandeur and glory as “the most distinguished and ever loyal city”. Apart from reinforcing the image and character of Intramuros as a rich cultural heritage, the project also intends to showcase Intramuros as a fun and relaxing place to stay.

The Kultura ... Musika ... Saya! featuring "Intramuros Rocks" is being presented by the Department of Tourism in cooperation with the Intramuros Administration.

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
