Magellan’s Cross

Basilica del Santo Niño Cebu

This is from San Agustin Church’s door (Manila, Philippines). I love the church’s intricate wood carving door designs. This is just one part.

This is our breathtaking beautiful country.

Suman is a rice cake originating from the Philippines. 

For more exact description from google:

 It is made from glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk, and often steamed in bananaleaves. It is served wrapped in buli or buri palm (Corypha) leaves and usually eaten sprinkled with sugar.

My aunt went to one of her reunions in the province and brought this home. This is just one of the many varieties of suman. I think this is “suman sa binuo” because you don’t need to add sugar. There is a minty flavor with it along with the coconut mix and sugar. I want to go to my aunt’s province and buy more of this. I think this is about 5-10 pesos only!

‎”Rizal published the Noli Me Tangere at 26, Juan Luna painted the Spolarium at 27, Aguinaldo became President of the First Republic at 29, and Bonifacio began the Revolution at 30. What do Filipinos in their late 20s do today? They work at a call center, go to Starbucks, have a take out, complete their stickers for a planner, be happy, and maybe go to Facebook and post things online. So if you think about it our heroes are young and so are most of you, so don’t waste your youth.”

Balimbing (Filipino Carambola/ Star fruit)

This is my first time eating this fruit. It’s not that sour but I think this is best eaten with salt. I was not able to take a picture of the actual fruit before it was cut ^^; However, you can check this page:
