When in Rome, do as the Romans do—an advice fitting for any travelers visiting a foreign land. So, when you are in the Philippines, testing your palate with the Filipino street foods, while not necessary, is commendable. Not only would it be fun to try the unique local dishes, but it is a great way to immerse and understand the Filipino culture.
It is easy to spot street food vendors; where there are churches, schools, recreational parks, or jeepney terminals, you will also see kiosks, makeshift stalls, or food carts. In suburbs, you will see vendors or hawkers with their bicycles or push carts almost everywhere. Street food is a way of life for many people in this part of the globe. It is a source of income for many Filipino families—some vendors testified that their street food businesses enable them to send their children to school. For students and working adults looking for inexpensive meal, street food satisfy them for just half-the price of a meal in any popular fast-food restaurant.
Instead of dining in a restaurant for an authentic Filipino dish, why not go out in the street and have a quick bite. There is nothing more authentic than those food in the streets—untouched with the modern culinary flair. You will not only get to enjoy the food, but you get to join the locals who are eating with much gusto. Let you save couple of dollars too. In fact, with just $2 USD you’ll get home stuffed. Sanitation can be a bit off though. However, if you are up to the challenge, then prepare your taste buds for a wonderful street food adventure.

...occupation of the foreigners through food, clothing, buildings, weapons, and dance. I could go on just telling how much change our country has gone through. Some say it is negative since we have forgotten our own culture but for others, it has created progress for the Philippines. A national artist worthy to be talked about is Carlos “Botong” Francisco. Have you ever wondered how dragging it would be to study passed events from our history if there were no pictures? From Angono, Rizal, Francisco was a most distinguished practitioner of mural painting for many decades and best known for his historical pieces. He was one of the first Filipino modernists along with Galo Ocampo and Victorio C. Edades who broke away from Fernando Amorsolo's romanticism of Philippine scenes. To others, Francisco's art "is a prime example of linear painting where lines and contours appear like cutouts." Having been able to enroll under sir Rafael Dolor, I was able to open doors when it came to the art of painting. Before, lines were just lines to me. But if you put them together, it would create a masterpiece. Suddenly, my world was not just all about using the internet, hanging out with friends and the like. There was more to life than doing that. I would consume my time doing something insignificant while others like Botong delegated their time through painting. Their patience and love for art was truly admirable. A lot of men underestimate the capabilities of Filipinos. Nowadays, they only......

The Miseducation of the Filipino

... Prof. Villar REACTION PAPER The Miseducation of the Filipino By Prof. Renato Constantino On the content, it’s really not a waste of time reading the article, you will learn not only new vocabulary but also your eyes will be opened to a fact that has long existed in which our eyes are just so blinded to see, because we are just so pre-occupied with the idea that the Americans are totally of help. But then again, we must remember that the world is created with symmetry, that in every evil, there’s goodness, and that in the presence of advantage, there’s a disadvantage. According to the article, it seems that foreigners, especially the Americans influence us in different ways. They sway us in terms of speech, sense of style and clothing, food we eat, the movies we watch and even how we think and decide. And for that, I can say that our minds are somewhat manipulated by the Western culture and thus, we think and act as if we were like them. I agree with Renato Constantino's statement in which I would quote "Education is a vital weapon of people striving for economic emancipation, political independence and cultural renaissance." One must be aware of the country's problems, understand the solution and be caring and courageous enough to work and sacrifice for our country's salvation. We Filipinos must work hand in hand to achieve one goal. Compared to US, our country is still in the process of improvisation or...

...FILIPINO BILANG WIKANG PAMBANSA INTRODUKSYON Ayon kay Barker at Barker, ikinukunekta ng wika ang nakaraan, ang kasalukuyan at ang hinaharap. Iniingatan nito ang ating kultura ar mgfa tradisyon. Maari raw mawala ang matatandang henerasyon, subalit sa pamamagitan ng wika ay naibabatid pa rin nila ang kanilang mga ideya, tagumpay, kabiguan at maging ang kanilang mga plano o adhikain sa hinaharap. Sa pamamagitan nito, ang mga sumunod at sumusunod pang henerasyon ay natututo o maaring matuto sa nakalipas na karanasan at sa gayo’y maiiwasan ang muling pagkakamali. Masasabi kung gayon na sa pamamagitan ng wika ay umuunlad tayto sa mga aspektong intelektual, sikolohikal at kultura. Ganito rin kaya ang mangyayari sa inyo kung babalikan natin at susuriin ang kasaysayan n gating wikang pambanasang Filipino? KASAYSAYAN NG WIKANG FILIPINO Mahigit sa 7 000 mga isla ang bumubuo sa Pilipinas na may ibat-ibang wika na ayon kay McFarland ay may bilang na 109. Samantala, ayon naman kay Constantino, may higit sa 500 mga wika at dayalekto ang bansa batay na rin sa pagkakaroon ng ibat-ibang etnikong grupong nakatira sa bawat rehiyon na abg Pilipinas ay isang bansang may komplikadong sitwasyon linggwistikal. Binubuo ito ng ibat-ibang grupong etnolinggwistiko na pinapangunahan ng Cebuano, Tagalog, Ilokano, Hiligaynon, Bicolano, Samar-Leyte, Waray, Kapampangan at Pangasinense na ayon kay McFarland ay samasakop sa 90% ng kabuuang populasyon ng bansa kasama na ang Maranao.

...Context Tropical hut is one, if not the oldest, fast food joint in the Philippines. It started in 1962 when the Que family had this Idea of putting up a coffee shop within the confines of their supermarket, thus,Tropical Hut Hamburger was born. Now, it has more than 50 branches nationwide and still growing,proving that it can hold its stance in the fast food arena. In 1962, the business has grown into a grocerystore and expanded rapidly into a Supermarket. It was also in this year that the concept of a CoffeeShop within the Supermarket was launched with the introduction of Tropical Hut Hamburger. III. POINT OF VIEW IV. STATEMENT OF THE PROB. Before Jollibee, before McDonald's, before Burger King, before anyone else, it seems, there is Tropical Hut Hamburger. And hamburger it is, indeed the best it could ever be. But that was long ago. Now, Tropical is just a vestige of its former self. Everyone suspects that their hamburger is where Jollibee's came from - They almost have the same taste. Their fried chicken is also just like Jollibee's, but this time it wasT ropical who copied it. Tropical has other food selections, like Bistek (a local version of beef steak or strips) and other sandwiches. However, the place is not world class. It is not as clean or as well kept as McDonald's or Jollibee. And they have a very poor image. Although food is good . Another is the utensils use in the kitchen are dirty.......

On the Streets

...english 1010 October 15, 2015 On the Street Many people pass them on the side of the road, many have a thought they stay under bridges, also a lot of people think they are just low down. the truth is they are just human beings trying to survive one day at a time. 17% of the world is homeless that means out of the 7.3 billion people recored in the world over a billion of them are homeless. that makes up more then half of the united state population. though some were never educated and some where just put in a hard spot they all ended up in the same place, on the street. I asked one man, on the corner of highland and sam cooper why he's out here. He told me with a smile,” i'm working so I can eat.” Which got me interested? I was curious, why he was smiling. To have nothing, and be begging for money how could someone be so happy, but then Tyrone (the man from the corner) and I got into a deeper conversation; Tyrone told me he was my age once ,and he thought, he could take on the world. He said,” school wasn't for me and I had a bad hand dealt when I was younger,” with his father out of the picture and him the oldest of five siblings he knew he had to take the reins. With no education and job back round you ask what did he do. He did what any man would do he provided any way he could which took him down some long dark road. He stated he was in and out of jail and eventually his mother didn't want anything to do with him till he got back to who Tyrone truly was. So hearing......

Serving Hawaii for over 40 years, Elena continues to create new dishes using their family’s recipes and local home-style cooking. In addition to being featured on many food and dining television shows, Elena’s restaurant has been awarded and recognized consistently year after year as the finest Filipino restaurant in Hawaii. Elena restaurant is considered the finest Filipino restaurant because of its friendly staffs, delicious foods and its cozy atmosphere. As I parked in the Tropicana Square shopping mall parking lot that is shared by Elena’s Restaurant, Arby’s and Jack in the box, I felt that Elena’s restaurant is in a very convenient location.

Filipino atin ay di bihayas magsalita nito, ngunit nararapat lamang na ito ay bigyang pansin nating mga mamamayang Pilipino. Ang Pilipinas ay ating sariling bayan, bayan na nilikha ng Dyos para sa ating lahat, nararapat itong ingatan, alagaan at maipagmalaki. Marapat muna nating pagaralan at bigyang tuon ang ating sariling wika, bago natin bigyang pansin ang wika ng iba’t ibang bansa bagkos ito ay sumasalamin sa ating pagmamahal at katapatan sa sariling bayan.
