World Disco Soup Day 2018

World Disco Soup Day at Enderun Colleges

Soup and disco in one event? Interesting? You bet! LOL

Just what is Disco Soup Day?

Well, it’s a pop-up disco party where you eat and dance to FIGHT FOOD WASTE!

Yes, that’s right. On Saturday, April 28, 2018, the links of the global Slow Food network from Uganda, Brazil to Netherlands, will join forces to collect food that would have otherwise been thrown into the bin; cutting and chopping with gusto, and cooking on a Protest Soup, as we fight food waste with a dance!

This year, Slow Food Manila, the Slow Food Youth, Enderun Colleges, Chefs, the Department of Agriculture, and volunteers (that includes you!) will collect, wash, clean, cut, and cook leftover food. We bring together students, teachers, children, seniors, chefs, the government and food activists in a gastronomic disco, to raise awareness and battle against food waste. We will also have DJs, singers, poets, artists, and an outdoor movie!

It’s going to be a big fun party for a cause actually!

But you can help prepare and hold the party as well. How? May we ask for your ugly vegetables, breads, or artisanal goods?

Aside from being there to chop to the beat, you can bring your food waste, any produce you might have otherwise thrown or sent to the dumpster. So, if you’d like to give us your food waste, please let us know where we can collect and who to get the bounty from on April 27, 2018. If you would rather send it to us on that day, please let us know. Kindly SMS to 0998-5999770 the following details:

Pick Up Where (or indicate if Dropping Off)
Contact Person
Mobile Number
Who Do We Thank?

The World Disco Soup Party will be at the Atrium of Enderun Colleges from 4:00PM to until you’re all fed up.

You are welcome to chop or even if you just want to know more about our current food system, and find ways to help change it.

And oh, bring cutlery (BYO plates, utensils, and cups). Should you wish to chop to the beat, don’t forget to bring knives, peelers, graters, and your dancing shoes!

Please save the date and join us!

authentic Japanese fare

Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Tachibana, Microtel Wyndham South Forbes

Tachibana Authentic Japanese Restaurant

at Microtel Wyndham, Silang, Cavite

Last Sunday, I went on a random trip to Sta. Rosa, Laguna to meet with my girlfriends. When we go to Nuvali area, there’s one place that we cannot not go: Tachibana Authentic Japanese Restaurant.

Tachibana has been serving its customers an authentic Japanese experience for more than a decade now. They started at the 2nd floor of Makati Palace Hotel in P. Burgos, Makati. Several years later they opened at Ventura Center, Sta.Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Don Jose, Santa Rosa. Then then last year, it opened another branch in Microtel by Wyndham in South Forbes, Silang, Cavite.

How would you know that a Japanese restaurant is serving authentic Japanese food and offering real Japanese experience?

If you see, many Japanese dining there.

That is Tachibana.

When you enter the restaurant, you feel right at home. Its cozy interiors make you marvel at the tiny details that give you a feel of Japanese culture.

I am not a connoisseur for everything Japanese but all I know is that they serve delicious and they don’t scrimp on ingredients.
