The Filipino is such a complex culture that there is no better way of understanding it than
by experiencing it yourself with your senses -
the sights, the sounds, the scents, and the flavors of my Philippines.
Manila Chocolatier is the fruit of my passion and love for my Philippines. When I moved out and found myself in a foreign land, it was where I fully appreciated what it was to be a Filipino. My thoughts were filled with images of idyllic afternoon in the farm, the sights of carabao tilling the rice field, women in their graceful ternors, men dashing in their barong tagalog, the sounds of Philippine jeepneys, the enhancing city lights of Metro Manila, the long summer at the beach - and how can I not missthe way my countrymen smile not just with their lips but also with their eyes, a smile that genuinely comes from the heart.
Named after Manila, as a tribute to what was, what us, and what will always be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the melting pot of the country's diverse culture, language, and flavors.
