The Philippine Embassy in Brasilia, led by Consul General Ariz Severino V. Convalecer, Chargé d'affaires, ad interim, participated in the ASEAN Food and Cultural Festival, also known as the ASEAN Bazaar, held on 20 May 2017 at the Embassy of Indonesia in Brasilia, Brazil.
With the objective of increasing the awareness of the Brazilians about ASEAN and its Members-States, the ASEAN Bazaar has now become one of the most widely-anticipated diplomatic events in Brasilia. This year`s edition attracted about 2,000 guests despite the unexpected rains.
The Philippine booths were among the most popular during the one-day bazaar with many guests lining up to look at the Philippine products, such as pearls, Barong Tagalog shirts, mango rum and bags, being sold at the handicrafts booth. The Philippine food booth had Chicken Adobo, Pancit, Lumpia, Empanada, Brazo de Mercedes, Cassava Cake, Atchara and Buco Pandan, among others.
For the cultural presentation, Filipino Master Herbert Inocalla and his Brazilian students performed the “Sayaw ng Mandirigma” (The Dance of the Warriors), a stylized demonstration of several FMA fighting techniques expressed in a dance. Three professional Brazilian models donned the Barong Tagalog and Terno for the Philippine Embassy in the fashion show that featured the national attires of the seven countries comprising the ASEAN Committee in Brasilia.
