This is ISMs version of Filipino week. Pista sa ISM 2016. This year’s theme is Pahiyas. Super fun with all the moms there volunteering to man the booths and raise funds for charity. It only takes 1 or 2 to man a booth but here there are so many – for moral support haha!! As @kayetinga says “Tindera” for the day
Congratulations Mandy Qua, President of the Philippine Cultural Club. So talented and so amazing just like her mom, Katy

Encounter Negros Island at the 31st Negros Trade Fair
Experience what Negros is all about at the 31st Negros Trade Fair this coming September 14-18, 2016 at the Glorietta Activity Center. With the theme “Biodiversity In Tourism”, this 31st edition promises an even more extensive view of this glorious province and what it is to be Negrense.
Encounter the ingenuity and creativity of the Negrenses with the vast array of products ranging from household products, fashion items and accessories, furniture and furnishing, gifts, and décor, all tastefully created and meticulously crafted.
Every year the members of the Association of Negros Producers ALWAYS outdo themselves, exceeding the already astronomical standard of quality and style that they achieved the previous year. Whether your 9 or 90, you’ll find that little (or LARGE, actually) piece that you just gotta have…whether for yourself or as a gift, you’ll surely find what’s just perfect.
And, of course, who hasn’t heard of the raves about the wonderful assortment of tastes from Negros that would make anyone salivate? From the famed inasal to those little sweet “kakanins”, biscuits, and what have you….just a gastronomic delight!!! Plus, with the Slow Food Convivium of Negros Island, you’ll savor tastes that are so unlike the oily, greasy, UNHEALTHY fast food that floods the malls.
All this has always graced the Negros Trade Fairs of past and visiting has always been a wonderful experience for all the guests.
But this year’s edition promises even more. Aligned with its theme, guests will see the bounty and diversity with which nature has blessed this island paradise. With the help of thePhilippine Reef and Rainforest Conservation Foundation Inc. (PRRCFI) and Philippine Biodiversity Conservation Foundation Inc. (PBCFI), guests may discover the wealth of Negros’ natural resources with different exhibits and activities both for the youngest of the young and the oldest of the old.
So the 31st Negros Trade Fair is, simply put, a must for everyone, bar none.
Celebrating the opening of the Negros Fair last September. I look forward to this because we get to taste really interesting and special dishes prepared by the different chefs Special guest, Undersecretary Berna Romulo Puyat @bernsrp Filipinos are so talented and our agriculture is so rich.
