Celebrating Filipino Culture: Palarong Pinoy at Eurocampus Manila

Today, on February 16th, Eurocampus Manila came alive with the vibrant spirit of Filipino culture as students from German European School Manila (GESM) and Lycée Français de Manille (LFM) gathered for the much-anticipated event: Palarong Pinoy. This event, aimed at fostering appreciation for the Filipino culture, brought together students, teachers, and parents in a day filled with fun, laughter, and cultural appreciation.

The school grounds buzzed with excitement as students eagerly took turns playing classic Filipino games such as tumbang preso, chinese garter, jolens, patintero, ten-twenty, and many more. From friendly competitions to collaborative team efforts, the atmosphere was filled with the joy of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

Adding to the festive ambiance, parents generously volunteered to contribute traditional Filipino food and refreshments for everyone to enjoy. Mouthwatering delights such as taho, pansit, bibingka, puto, kutsinta, adobo, and an array of other Filipino favorites adorned the tables, delighting the senses and satisfying appetites.

However, the excitement didn't stop there. In a display of adventurous spirit, a table was set up where volunteer parents challenged students and teachers alike to sample exotic Filipino delicacies. Brave participants had the opportunity to taste isaw (grilled chicken intestines), balut (developing duck embryo), dinuguan (pork blood stew), durian (notorious for its strong odor), and other unique delicacies, providing a memorable culinary experience and sparking conversations about Filipino gastronomy.

Through Palarong Pinoy, Eurocampus Manila not only celebrated the rich cultural heritage of the Philippines but also fostered a sense of community and appreciation for diversity among its students and staff. It was a day filled with laughter, friendly competition, delicious food, and cultural exploration — a true testament to the vibrant tapestry of Filipino culture embraced within the Eurocampus community.
