MassKara Night




One has to be fast on one’s feet so as the lines will get long at the blink of an eye. The choices are innumerable and will overload the sight, smell and taste senses. It is like a cruel joke when one can only partake of so much.  What am I talking about? Why, Negros cuisine of course! 


How do we start? Why, soup definitely. I stand near the ubad, its main ingredient is the innermost part of the banana trunk, cooked with chicken, monggo beans and dried string bean seeds. One is transported back to Negros upon the first sip of its broth. Then the mandatory Chicken Inasal  and Chorizo for the main meal. I will not mention the family brand but they are all good whichever  the brand. It will not be complete without the side dishes such as pickled vegetables and the binuro nga bilong-bilong.  Now that is lunch! One can only eat so much but one can try the lumpiang ubod for merienda. Good thing the pianonos and empanadas can be had and taken home for another round of guilty pleasures.



The cuisine of Negros sets it apart from other regional dishes. The Association of Negros Producers hit it right when they included foodstuffs from Negros in the first Negros Trade Fair 30 years ago. The ANP knew that it was not only products that they are offering, but instead they brought Negros with them for people to experience with all their senses and that includes the taste buds.

The recipes were refined in the kitchens of the gracious hacenderos, using the finest of ingredients and lovingly cooked and prepared by those who were handed down the recipes from earlier generations. That the ANP continues to create new recipes lends credence to the innovativeness of the Negrense not only in crafts but in native cuisine as well.

Come to the 30th Negros Trade Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center and experience the products and tastes of Negros from September 16 to September 20, 2015.

The 30th Negros Trade Fair has gone a long way from its 1985 inception. During the first trade fair, there were a smaller number of participants with a product line of indigenous handicrafts, baskets and woodcrafts with a smattering of foodstuffs. It was the beachhead needed so further expand and increase the participation of the people of Negros in the trade fair.



The resources and raw materials that were utilized were as diverse as the products. From using weeds, bamboos, wood, twigs, rattan, sea shells, glass, fruits and spices. The end result is a plethora of goods that represents the culture of Negros and its people. The offerings ranged from handwoven baskets, bags, capiz serving trays, furniture, lighting fixtures, barongs, fashion accessories, innumerable food items and even solar panels.

The 30th Negros Trade Fair showcases the creativity and ingenuity of the people of Negros. Having adapted its products according to the changing dynamics of the market, the inventiveness of the people has come to the fore. This trade fair is a testament to inclusiveness wherein such diverse  products are all found under one roof that were crafted and made by the people of Negros. That is Unity in Diversity.



The 30th Negros Trade Fair is from September 16 to September 20, 2015 at the Glorietta Activity Center.

Unity in Diversity

Wednesday, September 16, 2015



The Philippines is replete with fiestas and festivals. Each region and ethno-linguistic group has its own traditions and manners in celebrating its arts and culture. There are notable ones conducted in provinces and cities all over the archipelago. But not all will export them to the National Capital Region.

The Negros Trade Fair is one of those who bring Negros to Manila. They have been doing it annually since 1985. Now running on its 30th year, the Negros Trade Fair is a window to Negros. The trade fair depicts its people. By looking, touching and even tasting its products, one gets delightfully acquainted with the Negrense.

There is no better way to get to know a land and its people than to savouring and enjoying its products. One gets to see woodcrafts, accessories, clothes, furniture, food and foodstuffs and even a manufacturer of solar panels under one roof. Such creativity and diversity identifies the Negrense.

That is why the Association of Negros Producers export said products that not only caters to material needs and wants but also gives an idea on what encompasses the people of Negros. It is like a pocket Mardi Gras on the month of September.

Experience Negros and its people via the 30th Negros Trade Fair now happening at the Glorietta Activity Center from September 16 – September 20, 2015.

The 30th Negros Trade Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center
The annual Negros Trade Fair, now on its 30th year was featured in an article in the prestigious Advertising and Marketing Philippines publication. Citing the remarkable resilience and perseverance of the Negrense in the face of adversity, the article discloses the origins and inspiration of the then nascent Association of Negros Producers (ANP).

The ANP, chose to harness the greatest resource of Negros, its people. Combining newly learned skills, indigenous materials, creativity and an indomitable spirit, the ANP launched its first Negros Trade Fair at the Makati Carpark in 1985. Each year the Negros Trade Fair managed to increase its participants, customers and product lines.  Products ranging from baskets to mats, woodcrafts, furniture and foodstuffs, the trade fair managed to bring and highlight the culture and arts of Negros to Manila. It is therefore no surprise that it has already remained as an awaited event every year.

The 30th Negros Trade Fair starts today, September 16 to September 20, 2015 at the Glorietta Activity Center.
