I am honored to celebrate Philippine Independence month in style with a 2-in-1 event at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila. There’s the Hiraya art exhibit organized by the hotel in partnership with art festival organizer Art in the South, back to back with Pistahan sa Cafe 8 buffet promo featuring our favorite Filipino dishes and beverages.
Hiraya art exhibit runs from June 7 to July 2, 2017 with the following artists as participants:
Below are what you can expect in this amazing showcase of Pinoy creativity:
During the launch at Crimson Hotel’s The Gallery, two kinds of free cocktail drinks plus wine were brought to our tables by servers in native costumes. I chose one glass each of Tayabas Quezon (raspberry juice + lambanog) and Vino de Coco (coconut wine). I’ve never tried these drinks before, and I enjoyed them despite getting a little tipsy due to my very low alcohol tolerance. 😂
Another version of cocktail drink prepared for guests was the Manila Sunshine (pineapple juice + Don Papa Rum). Pica pica was also served during the afternoon cocktail reception.
Participating in the ribbon cutting ceremony to officially launch Hiraya were Vice President Sales & Marketing at Chroma Hospitality Ms. Carmela Bocanegra, Mr. Gary Llamas of Muntinlupa City Hall, Artists Michelline Syjuco and JJ Duque, General Manager Gerhard Doll of Crimson Hotel Filinvest City, Manila.
Right after Hiraya formally opened, we were directed by the hotel staff to Cafe 8 for a glimpse of Filipino culture with traditional dances, a Filipino-inspired buffet and the best of OPM via an acoustic performance.
See what’s (literally) on my plate:
Among all that I tried, my top choices are Escabecheng Lapu-Lapu, Buko Pie, Leche Flan and Fresh Lumpia.
