kamayanThe anatomy of a Kamayan

DID YOU KNOW…
The traditional way (in the Philippines)
of eating is with the hands, especially
dry dishes such as inihaw or prito.
The diner will take a bite of the main
dish, then eat rice pressed together
with his/her fingers… Filipinos tend to feel the
spirit of kamayan when eating amidst
nature during out of town trips, beach
vacations, and town fiestas.  (Wikipedia.com)

Tambayan @ SEAS Centre

Posted by anakbayantoronto on August 15, 2009

Alam ko nalulungkot ka, alam ko miss mo na’ng barkada;
Pero nandito ka na sa Canada at hindi ka nag-iisa.
Sa bahay huwag magmukmok, baka dalawin ka lang ng antok;
Lumabas ka’t magmunimuni, kabataang Pinoy nandiyan lang sa tabi;
Makihalobilo ka kaibigan, pumunta sa…
