CATCH OF THE WEEKEND
Organised to celebrate the Philippines’ National Day on Friday, the event will showcase the country’s culture, arts and attractions.
Visitors can watch the weaving and painting of Filipino textiles and handicrafts and listen to Filipino singers. But what is a country festival without a buffet of its food? Local Filipino restaurant 7,107 Flavours will whip up a menu to feature the Philippines’ regional dishes.
Go on Saturday to see the beauty and beast of the Philippines unleashed, as that’s when the grand finale of beauty pageant “Mutya ng Pilipinas” and demonstrations of Filipino martial arts will be held.
What’s more, lucky draws will be conducted throughout the festival, with prizes being airfares to Manila and the plum win, an all-inclusive tour package to the city. Kaylene Hong
