We Filipinos have different icons as we are a patriotic nation. Taking pride of our country was never a problem for us, as we have a number of heroes, awesome destinations, and of course, our hospitality. But surprisingly, we do not have a national dish, so mark your calendars, as we have an Adobo party this June 11, 4PM at Eastwood Central Park.
Adobo is a deeply personal dish to every Filipino, as every family has their own way of making it. My lola Merced would always make the sweet one, and it is actually my comfort food.

Did you know that this is not the first time to push Adobo as our National Dish? Last 2014, House Bill 3926 was led by Rene Relampagos from Bohol, filed a bill in Congress to declare as our National dish, but until now, it is still up for deliberation.

Now with the efforts and backing up with Datu Puti (which I believe is the best ingredient for Adobo), the Adobo Movement is born. And now, let us remember our homes and our nation, as we need 500,000 signatures to support House Bill 3926, to officially instate Adobo as the National Dish of the Philippines.
See you this 4PM at the Eastwood Central Park, and Admission is Free! Also, please sign up now at: www.change.org/organizations/AdoboMovement
