Hi there earthling creatures, I’m back! 🙂 Today’s agenda: Tell the wonders of Negros Trade Fair.
Remember the last post I did about meeting Morgan, and how I ended up in an event? Well, this is the coverage of that said event. For those who haven’t read it, the title of that said blogpost is, “The Unexpected Everything: An Earthling Day to Meet the Lovely Morgan Matson.”
Strolling around Glorietta while carrying my pint of ice cream from Baskin Robbins, I’ve noticed that there’s an on-going event in their event hall so I’ve decided to explore what’s in store.
The said event was created to honor the inner treasures of Negros. Meaning an exhibit of Negros’ products – from food up to clothing. Well, it was crowded and everyone was up to have a taste of its food, and its originally handcrafted products. Maybe lots of you are wondering what’s Negros; well, it is a place located somewhere in Visayas (never been there so I can’t tell most of you about it. Honestly, I can narrate something since I’ll probably search google, but since I’m a bit lazy, I hope you can just do that).
Back to my experienced, I easily got hooked to Jarvis Gourmet Foods while roaming around since it was one of the nearest stall I saw upon entering the venue. Well, I bought 3 pieces ensaymada flavored dulce leche for only Php 100. (Nice find especially since I’m looking forward for a snack during office breaks). Then, I’ve tasted their spreads; yes, I’ve been ultimately guilty since I bought one – Saluyot Cheese Spread. Of course, my guilty pleasure did not stop there. I even strolled to the entire parameters of that place, and even saw Joel Torre since his restaurant named “Inasal sa Dasalan” was one of the food exhibitors. Well, I bought some delicacies from the Province of Negros, and I swear it was heaven sent. Name of store: El Ideal. 🙂 Lots of stall to explore, but due to exhaustion, and not enough budget, I wasn’t able to buy and try almost half of what was there. Spare me for some apologies since I wasn’t able to take proper pictures of some stalls as well in the said event since it was jampacked. Anyway, will definitely look forward for events like this one since treasuring the wonders of Philippines is really one magnificent thing to do to attract tourists, and to inculcate to other Filipinos the blood of glory that lies in our culture.
P.S. Next time, will bring lots of money to be prepared.
As promised, here are the not-so-blurred-photos. 😂
