Hi, Miss Stena from Philippines living in Sweden. I am so happy I am getting used to the job now with Miss Lopez. I´d love to show you about my country…!
Philippines has a very rich Spanish culture. Even the name of the country was given by a Spanish explorer in honor of the Spain’s King. In the modern days, Spanish culture still lives among the Filipinos, from the Filipino names such as Lopez, Jose, Consuelo, Miguel, Reyes, Fatima, Corazon, etc to the language, also from Religion to Arts.
The most visible influence left by the Spanish culture is FOOD! Just to name a few of my favourites, Afritada, Brazo de Mercedez, Calabaza, Chorizo, Pastillas, Torilla, Arroz a la Valenciana, Tapas, etc.
Below is one example of the many Spanish restaurants in the Philipines, DOS MESTIZOS.
THANK YOU SPAIN! Viva Feel Good Womanhood!
