Thousands Sailed the Balangay in Celebration of MANA Mo: https://bit.ly/36bXm3Q
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Maritime and Ocean Affairs Office (MOAO) went on a virtual voyage of discovery and learning on the Balangay through a public webinar on 23 September 2020 that attracted a live global audience of more than a thousand viewers in celebration of the Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month (MANA Mo).
Entitled “The Balangay through the Lens of Philippine Maritime History and Boat Culture”, the webinar featured four leading experts, archeologists, and voyagers who elaborated on the genius and expertise of Filipinos in seamanship from pre-colonial times.
The Balangay also showcased the wealth of Filipinos’ ancient maritime traditions and history connecting the islands with great civilizations.
In his opening remarks, Assistant Secretary Igor G. Bailen stated that the celebration of MANA Mo is intended to raise national consciousness on maritime and archipelagic issues and policies. He highlighted that the Filipinos’ connectivity to the sea needs to be protected and preserved like an inheritance.
Dr. Maria Bernadette L. Abrera of the University of the Philippines Diliman provided an overview of Philippine maritime history, noting for instance how early marauding islanders conducted seaborne raids to extend their political influence, thereby leading to the creation of ever larger communities. She also discussed the important role of Philippine shipbuilding in the Galleon Trade.
Dr. Ligaya S.P. Lacsina of the National Museum discussed the archeology of the Butuan boats and the lashed-lug boatbuilding tradition that underscored the excellent workmanship of Filipinos evident in the construction of the boats. She also shared photos of the remains of Butuan boats from their excavations in northern Mindanao.
Dr. Aurora Roxas-Lim of the Ateneo de Manila University focused on movements by sea and stated that the Austronesian peoples, including those in the Philippines, were expert boat builders and navigators who ventured across the oceans including to China and thus, established trade routes. The long Filipino tradition of seafaring only ceased after colonizers disrupted inter-island trade and fostered religious hostility.
Former DENR and DOTC Undersecretary Arturo T. Valdez, who led the expedition, shared his experience in building Balangay using known time-tested techniques as a way to rekindle the maritime consciousness of Filipinos.
Undersecretary Valdez and his team of adventurers then undertook an expedition that traveled across the archipelago in 2009 and around Southeast Asia in 2010, recreating voyages of the Balangay from material evidence traced back to 600 years ago. He underscored the importance of how such voyages have instilled pride in the Philippines’ maritime heritage that is intrinsic to the national identity.

On this episode of "Simply Sarap," Chef Louise takes us to the historic Barcelona, Sorsogon where she introduces the Lechon or Spit-Roasted Pig, a dish that traces its roots to the pre-colonial times and shares similarities with the dish of the same name found in Latin American countries and other Austronesian regions.

A star in every Filipino household on special occasions, the Lechon of the Philippines has two types—the Cebu Lechon and Manila Lechon—which differ in their preparation and roasting techniques. For this episode, Chef Louise teaches how to make the Cebu Lechon using pork belly, which can easily be made with an oven at home.

While the different lechon types are to be enjoyed with different dips and sauces, one thing is undeniable--as a Filipino dish, it is best eaten with steaming hot rice! Try this recipe for a simply sarap taste of a Filipino celebration in your home.

Did you know, that when explorers and experts discovered the wreckage of the galleon San Diego near the coasts of Nadugbu, Batangas on 21 April 1991, among the artifacts recovered were parts of Japanese katana swords. During the time the San Diego sank (14 December 1600) it was engaged in a naval battle with the Dutch warship Mauritius. Japanese mercenaries were hired to supplement the numbers of the combatants on board the San Diego.

What country is also known as the global center of marine biodiversity?

- Philippines

Covering a major portion of the Coral Triangle, with more than 16800 sq km of coral reef, the Philippines are a global center for marine biodiversity. Its central region, from Luzon to Mindanao, has more marine species per unit area than any other place on the planet. It is home to a unique plethora of seagrass, invertebrates, seaweeds, and marine mammals.

Marine biologists call the Philippine Sea ‘center of the center’ of aquatic biodiversity. However, with ongoing decimation, marine biodiversity in the Philippines is facing a bleak future.
