Join The Adobo Movement!

The Filipino people are a patriotic nation. We take pride in our heroes, from Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio, to modern-day heroes like Manny Pacquiao. We are blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches and mountains in the world. We are also characterized by our fondness for food, so it is suprising that we do not have a national dish.

Informally, ask any Pinoy what our national dish should be and he or she will instantly say, "Adobo!" complete with a twinkle in their eye and a rumble in their stomach. Adobo is deeply personal dish to every Filipino. From Batanes to Tawi-Tawi, every Filipino family has their own special heirloom recipes handed down from their mothers. The versatility of Adobo makes it so that you can adjust and fine tune the recipes according to personal taste, and to the availability of local ingredients.

Most nations around the world have their own national dishes, and it is time for the Filipino to take pride in what is uniquely our own. Ours is not the first effort to make Adobo the national dish of the Philippines. In 2014, House Bill 3926 (led by Hon. Rene Relampagos from the first district of Bohol) was filed in congress to declare Adobo as our national dish, but to this day, the bill its still up for final deliberation.

Hence the Adobo Movement is born.

It's about time for us to unite in making Adobo , the official national dish!

The Adobo Movement is a movement that hist close to home because Adobo is a dish that is both personal, as it is national. Adobo is familiar; it reminds us of home, it rekindles our longing for family, it identifies us as a Filipino and as a nation. 

Their goal is to hit at least 500,000 signatures to support House Bill 3926 to officially instate Adobo as the National Dish of the Philippines.

You too can be part of this worthy cause, just log on to http://www.change.org/organizations/adobomovement and click on the sign petition button! They hope that you can also help spread the word to your family and friends by sharing your vote on facebook, or by sending the link to them so that they too can be part of the movement.

Datu Puti will be launching the Adobo Movement on June 11, 2015 to celebrate Adobo as being proudly Pinoy in time with commemorating our Independence day! They would like to invite you, your family, and your friends to come and join them at the Eastwood City Plaza Tent (tiangge area) from 6:30 pmto 12:00 MN as food concesionaires from all over the country battle it out for the honor of being called The Bayan's Best Adobo. Catch various Pinoy artists perform as they freely showcase the rich talent of the Filipino People.

What better way to celebrate the day of freedom with fun, entertainment, and plates of varied, mouth-watering Adobo dishes! Entrance is free alongside each petition.

Magsama-sama tayo itaguyod ang petisyon! Subo mga kapatid!
