aliwan 2009 pakalog festival (2/25)

The delegation from Pasig City presents a fiesta celebrated on New Year’s Eve, which focusses on the lifestyle of the early residents of Santolan, Pasig.   Pakalog is an old recipe of Santoleños in preparing the native fish called “bulig.”  This is placed in a vessel and shaken together with herbs and spices before cooking.  The dance shows the daily activities of life as they go about their hard work, where the promise beneath the toil and bountiful harvest is the enticing aroma of their favorite dish as media noche fare to greet the incoming year.   Festival muse – Anne Camille del Rosario.
