The Jack Daniels Holiday Barrel Tree Comes To Manila!

The Jack Daniels Holiday Barrel Tree Comes To Manila!

 The holidays just got better.

Where tradition and family, community and togetherness are already at the heart of this time of year, in Manila we are being treated to a symbol of all these that’s also bound to one man’s independent spirit and belief in what this season is about.

 Welcome the Jack Daniel’s Holiday Barrel Tree! A Lynchburg Tennessee holiday tradition that through the years has spread to the United Kingdom and Canada. This year, it is going to be lit in Manila.

 The first of its kind in Southeast Asia, the Jack Daniel’s Holliday Barrel Tree is more than just a symbol of the holidays that has traveled the world. It stands for a community that has built a tradition together, this annual tradition started by the men and women of Lynchburg.

 That the Lynchburg community would create its identity around the making of Jack Daniel’s is no surprise. Yet the man behind it all, Jack Daniel himself was not one to let them forget about the importance of family and togetherness, no matter the demands of building America’s oldest registered distillery. This could only bring the men and women of Lynchburg Tennessee to create the annual tradition of the Holiday Barrel Tree – made from the very barrels used in maturing Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, a symbol of their hard work and persistence, but more importantly a reminder of the value of gathering together as community and family.

 This is what the Holiday Barrel Tree brings to Manila, rising in two locations – in Fuente Circle in Eastwood City and at The Fort Plaza in Bonifacio Global City. It speaks of how priceless this time of year is, not because of the rituals of gift-giving and excess, but because we come together for no reason other than gratefulness.  It tells us that above all else, gathering merrily with family, friends and loved ones is the reason for this season.

After all, it’s not what’s under the tree that matters most. It’s who’s around it.

Moreover, the event was graced by Mr. Anthony Ramirez, Brown Forman Corporation Philippine Market Manager who also iniated the lighting of the first and only Jack Daniel’s Barrel Tree in Asia.

 Meanwhile, Up Dharma Down performed before the ceremony began.

Gather Merrily.  Drink Responsibly. 

For 18+y.o.only.

BOY SHAWARMA

I am forever a fan of the “Shawarma”, one thing is that I grew up in the middle east and Shawarma is what I crave for usually when I visit back home in Oman, ever since before when I was a kid, I would always ask my parents to pass by Rowasco (Oman) to buy a shawarma at this place called ‘ISTANBOLY TURKISH”, it is the best! If you have the chance to visit Oman, you should go there 🙂

Well living here in the Philippines for the past 4 years, there were some food places that sell Shawarma that don’t really look like a shawarma. (Trust me, I know how a legit authentic shawarma looks like).

Anyways my friend Vincent, told me a Shawarma place near their place that just got re-opened. So I decided to come along and It was lunch time so I was hungry. It was called “BOY SHAWARMA”, too bad I was unable to actually know the history and who owns it, maybe I was really hungry.

It actually easy to find the place,  its along  Estrada St. Malate, Manila. If you live near Taft that wouldn’t be a problem.

On the menu, they have the classic Shawarma, you could choose chicken (best seller) or beef. Then the best seller meal is the “BIG DADDY MEAL”, They have Kebab, Shawarma rice, roasted chicken, On the Grill: Afnan and Kabsa. Don’t worry the price rates are affordable. Students can afford it, mostly I’ve seen kids from La Salle and from CSB who came in to dine since its close to them.

I ordered the classic “Chicken Shawarma” which I usually order back home. Then honestly,so far its the closest to what I usually eat back at Oman, not bad. The garlic sauce was good, the fries were not as chunkier back home, but I am more of flavor, it tastes very good. My friend ordered the Shawarma rice, and he said it was good. My friend said it was cool, that they have expanded their menu,

(The anatomy of the SHAWARMA)

I would say go and try BOY SHAWARMA, So far I could recommend it, If you really want to get legit and authentic shawarma, so far its the closest to Istanboly, Among the shawarma places have tasted. You can check out their facebook page, Search for BOY SHAWARMA. They have Instagram, @officialboyshawarma and hashtag #BOYSHAWARMA

If there are other places that offer good Shawarma or arabian cuisine, let me know and e-mail me at krizialouren_catapang@yahoo.com, So I could recommend also to my friends who also grew up in Oman especially or any place in the middle east.
