The Conyo Kid’s Guide to a Filipino Fiesta

October 9, 2013

You’ve never participated in an authentic Pinoy fiesta, not really. Once or twice, you may have flown all the way to Cebu for the Sinulog parades, skin perfectly tan and smeared with paint, but at the end of the day you end up eating a McDonald’s cheeseburger for dinner in your hotel room. It’s okay, it’s not really your fault you’re too conyo for parties in the countryside (okay, maybe it’s your fault a little bit).

Regardless of your true reasons, we’re here to help. Here’s what you need to know and what to expect at a real Filipino fiesta.

Addi dela Cruz Addi writes nonfiction that reads like fiction and fiction that isn't meant for children. He lives for breakfasts, getting new stamps on his passport, and perfecting his yoga tree pose. In between episodes of MasterChef and Hannibal, he dreams of owning a café that would serve the best hot chocolate in the South and have 12 tables at most. FOLLOW

Also, don’t get diarrhea. Avoid foods that easily spoil like pancit and laing esp. when you’re going late afternoon or in the evening. 😀

Hmm, I’ve never encountered spoiled food in the afternoon, but pancit and laing are huge bestsellers at fiestas, too.

The plate/bowl beside buko pandan is supposed to be “ginataan with bilo bilo” right? It’s also labeled as buko pandan.

Oh man, how I miss fiestas. I wish I could go to one right now. Alas, I’m overseas. But I’ve heard that the Filipino community here in Vancouver likes to get together during our Independence Day. I’m excited for that next year.
