There’s no better time to celebrate Pinoy pride than the month of August. Why? Because it’s National Language Month, or Buwan Ng Wikang Pambansa—a month that stresses the importance of Filipino as a national language and celebrates the very idea of Filipino culture. (Yes, doesn’t it feel good to be Pinoy?)
If you find yourself in Makati come August, why there’s so much happening in its streets. To kick off the festivities of National Language Month, Make It Makati once again closed down Paseo de Roxas last Sunday, August 4, to bring everyone Makati Street Meet: Lokal, a street party full of Pinoy food, OPM music, and regional arts & craft workshops.
The street party was alive and kicking despite the afternoon rains. Makatizens, barkadas and families, flocked to Paseo de Roxas to partake in the day’s many activities. The party culminated in a special performance by musical guest Kaliftra, a Cebu-based band that incorporated tribal instruments with modern rock tunes—indeed, a fitting set for a night that touted original Pinoy music.
In case you missed it, we’re here to give you a recap of what happened during this August’s Makati Street Meet. See you once again on the first week of September.
Paseo de Roxas was bustling with Makatizens looking for a good bite on a Sunday afternoon. And their options were aplenty, thanks to the many food trucks and tents. One of the best-sellers was the choice cuts of lechon from Timplador de Cebu Lechon.
A colorful parade of food trucks was a sight to see during the afternoon. A lot of attendees took selfies in front of The Soulfood Truck PH’s groovy wheels.
It was a Pinoy food trip like no other! Foreigners and Filipinos alike enjoyed a slice of lechon from Timplador de Cebu Lechon.
The event wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for The Flats Amorsolo–Makati Street Meet’s official sponsor. Check it out! Co-living spaces in the heart of the Makati CBD for as low as Php 6,250 a month! What a deal!
The evening ended with an unforgettable performance from Kaliftra, a Cebu-based rock band. See how they used traditional Filipino instruments to great effect.
