Hidenori Izaki, First Asian World Barista Champion Live in Manila

Sabi nga nila lahat ng mga matagumpay na tao ay nagsimula sa isang pangarap, isang pangarap na makatotohanan at kayang gawin.

Colorful annual festivals that happen all over our country

With our high-spirited flair for celebration and inherently fun-loving nature, it comes as no surprise that we Filipinos are renowned for being among the happiest people in the world! This penchant for coming together in the spirit of merrymaking is perhaps best demonstrated in the multitude of colorful annual festivals that happen all over our country, and each fiesta presents its own unique experience. Most provinces celebrate their colorful fiestas during the summer season. Listed beloware some of the biggest fiestas that we Filipinos look forward to and are the vacation highlights during May and June:

Pahiyas Festival
Celebrated in thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest, the Pahiyas Festival is held on the 15th of May in Lucban, Quezon. Houses lining the streets of Lucban are finely decorated with agricultural produce, plants and colorful rice wafers called kiping. A friendly spirit of competition fills the air as neighbors try to outdo each other’s decorative creativity, although doors are open and neighbors are all welcome to partake of the feasts laid out inside.

MalakawanPinya Festival
Calauan, Laguna is best known for it’s main agricultural produce, thepinya (pineapples). Held on the month of May, the festival’s colorful reverie is replete with Mardi Gras street parties, pineapple float parades and cultural presentations.

Pulilan Carabao Festival
To honor San Isidro Laborador, the patron saint of Pulilan, Bulacan, hundreds of working animals, most especially carabaos, are led in the streets of the town during May. The carabaos are groomed and decorated in garlands and are made to genuflect in front of the church. This act is a symbolism of thanksgiving for the plentiful harvest for the year.

Parada Ng Lechon
Expect the province of Balayan, Batangas to come alive annually on the 24th of June to celebrate the feast day of Saint John the Baptist. Lechonor suckling pig is a Batangas delicacy and is the main dish for most Philippine celebrations. These lechons are dressed and are paraded in the streets after being blessed at the church. The parade and merry making is filled with water drenching and feasting on the lechon. Festival- goers are advised to come with an empty stomach as well as a change of clothes to fully enjoy and partake in the festivities.

Pintados Festival
Held every 29th of June, the Pintados festival highlights the rich cultural heritage of the people of Leyte and Samar to celebratethe Feast of the Señor Santo Niño de Leyte. This religious festival is marked with much merriment while showcasing the unique and colorful history of the province. The most notable feature of this festival is derived from the look of the festive dancers. These dancers are adorned from head to toe in paint that looks like armors in order to resemble the tattooed warriors from the olden times. The province comes alive through a dazzling array of colors, native music and folk dances.  

With the many fiestas coming around, it’s nearly impossible not to dive into the festivities! Celebrate the good times and say Yes to May Sparkling Grape Juice, the delicious non-alcoholic beverage in red and white grapes ensures everyone can join in on the fun and excitement. Its subtle fizz and refreshing flavor coming from a fine selection of high-quality selected white and red grapes evoke the feeling of merry-making in everyone, regardless of age or dietary restrictions. This bubbly drink from Belgium is your best choice to delight the lighthearted fiesta feeling in everyone!

Celebrate fiestas, partake in the jovialities,and say YES to MAY today!

Life Goals of the Millennial Generation

(R-L ) Gerald Bautista (GB), Head of Bank & Alternative Distribution Channel for Sun Life Asset Mgt. Co., Inc. (SLAMCI); Matteo Guidicelli, and Mylene Lopa, Chief Operating Officer of Sun Life Financial
Sabi nila ang genration daw ng Millennial ngayon ay gusto instant, gusto ung tipong easy go lucky lang o hindi naman kaya yung walang effort kumbaga sabi ng matatanda binigay na nga sa iyo isusubo mo na lamang.

Pero para sa aking bilang parte na rin ng isang Millennial hindi naman siguro ganun kasi bilang isang Millennial mas masasabi kung mas lumalawak na ung mga impormasyon na kailangan ko malaman hindi katulad ng geneation Y or X na madaming kailangan daan o hindi naman kaya madaming kinakatakutan na bagay.
