The Adobo Movement

From Northern Luzon to Tawi-Tawi, every Filipino has their own way of making Adobo. But did you know that even if all of us answer that Adobo is our National Dish, it is not yet so. In 2014, House Bill 3926 led by Hon. Rene Relampagos of Bohol filed the bill in congress to declare Adobo as our National Dish, but till today, the bill is still up for deliberation.

The Adobo Movement is an advocacy that hits close to home because Adobo is a dish that is both personal, Adobo is a familiar dish that reminds us of home and family. We remember our mother and lolas and even aunts cooking Adobo. It also identifies us as a Filipino.


Ms. Nancy Reyes- Lumen, author of "The Adobo Book" is very passionate about this advocacy. Her book is a compilation of recipes, essays, and trivias about our beloved Adobo.


Chef Mitchie Sison demonstrated her Adobo pate, and also prepared different Adobo dishes (see first photo).




Be a part of Adobo Movement and join the cause. 500,000 thousand signatures is needed to support House Bill 3926 to officially instate Adobo as the National Dish of the Philippines.

NEW RESTO ALERT: Hà Nội Phố (Ha Noi Pho)

Makati has been a go-to place for my family and I to grab a meal or sometimes just to have a cup of coffee. Though, really, it’s mostly just us visiting our favorite spots. Recently, my mom went out of town so it was just my dad and I who went out for dinner.

Salcedo Market x Legaspi Market Tour

We haven't visited the weekend markets for years so I was giddy with excitement because I was able to visit both Salcedo and Legaspi markets this month, thanks to our Dusit Thani Manila staycation . To differentiate the two, Salcedo market  is held every Saturday at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village Makati while Legaspi market is held every Sunday at the Corinthian Carpark in Legaspi Village Makati. Since we were coming from Dusit Thani Manila, it was quite a long walk but it was early in the morning (around 8AM) and even Ayala and Makati Avenues were still without cars. Wow!
