Filipino traditions in Pan de Manila’s Christmas paper bags
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - December 19, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Siniloan, Laguna-based Amador Barquilla was commissioned by Pan de Manila for this endeavor.  “Bisperas ng Pasko,” a 30” x 75” oil-on-canvas creation, was the result of this collaboration.

“Some say my work is impressionist, some say it’s neo-realist; I just paint whatever inspires me,” says 29-year-old Barquilla.

 â€œChristmas for me is about children out on the streets, sharing their blessings with their friends.  Or men cooking together a roast pig or mothers putting the final touches of an intricate dish.  The preparations that come with Christmas are also a form of celebration,” he explained.

“Pan de Manila’s paper bags and packaging have promoted Filipino values and traditions. The Noche Buena is an integral part of our Masayang Paskong Pinoy since this reminds us about the true meaning of the season,” said Mari Sebastian, marketing manager of Pan de Manila.

Pan de Manila is open 24/7 in convenient locations outside shopping malls all over Metro Manila, Luzon, Cebu and Iloilo.  For information, call 636-0468 or visit www.facebook.com/pandemanilaofficial.
