Makati City Festivals

Ganito Kami Noon
Translated “The way we were,” Ganito Kami Noon is a tribute ball led by the mayor of Makati right at the city hall quadrangle. This event is held on June 1 each year. Participants—all government employees whose offices and agencies work with city hall—wear native traditional clothes or the kind of clothes stylish in their youth. Makati festivals like this are often fun and amusing. At near closing of the festival, the mayor and his wife cite achievements of model employees.

Likhang Kamay
Makati festivals often have to do with religious or cultural events but there is one that pays tribute to and helps artists and craftsmen with their trade. Likhang Kamay or “Hand-Created” is a trade show of native handicrafts featuring works of superb artists and craftsmen. In this event, prospective buyers and investors in native crafts and artworks are invited to see the exhibits. This festival is assisted by the trade and tourism departments and well promoted to ensure broader participation and exposure.

Caracol is held each first Sunday of the year (first Sunday of January) and captures the efforts of Filipinos in coping up with life’s vicissitudes. Makati festivals are sometimes derivations from other festivals, and three ethnic festivals are combined in Caracol. The term “Caracol” is Spanish meaning “snail” which has a shell covering. The shell symbolizes people’s efforts at combating life’s challenges.

Flores de Mayo
Each month of May Makati City celebrates the flowers in bloom in the city—and the flowers are not only those produced by plants but young women in the city as well. The event, among flowery Makati festivals, features lush varieties of flowers to serve as backdrop for the young beauties paraded in the streets of Makati.

Main Dishes Philippine Cuisine

Adobo is one of the most popular Filipino dishes and is considered unofficially by many as the national dish. It usually consists of pork or chicken, sometimes both, stewed or braised in a sauce usually made from vinegar, cooking oil, garlic, bay leaf, peppercorns, and soy sauce. It can also be prepared "dry" by cooking out the liquid and concentrating the flavor. Bistek, also known as "Filipino beef steak," consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in soy sauce and calamansi and then fried in a skillet that is typically served with onions.
