We’re excited to announce that we’re now fully translated into Tagalog, the language of the Philippines. To welcome our new Filipino Pinners, we’re put together a collection of some of our favorite boards and Pins.
Visiting the Philippines
The Philippines is made up of 7,107 islands, so you can bet there’s lots to see and do. There’s the capital Manila, the Taal Volcano in TagayTay, the steepest rice terraces in the world in Luzon and Donsol, known for its whale sharks. Whatever you’re into, you can use place boards to plan every part of your trip, like where you’re staying.
Philippine food often combines sweet, sour and salty flavors all at once for a taste explosion. Try kare-kare, a mixed vegetable and meat stew, or lumpia, the Filipino version of egg rolls. My favorite food from back home is adobo, a cooking style used to prep meats and vegetables. I like it best in adobong hito, which is catfish. See what other Filipino dishes you can try for dinner this week.
I teach Eskrima, the traditional martial arts of the Philippines. It’s the official martial art and sport of the country, and every time I practice, I feel more connected to my culture. Eskrima emphasizes fighting with weapons like sticks, knives and other blades. It’s also got different hand-to-hand techniques. There’s lots of movement involved so it can be difficult to perfect.
