Mango Picks: Having a blast with the Philippine New Year

December 27, 2010 Mango Tours 0 Comments


by Roy Cagalingan

Let us welcome the New Year with a bang! Here are some tips and tricks:



1. Stock up on those colorful noisemakers

Despite the annual government warnings, Filipinos love to welcome fresh starts with loud bangs. Whether it’s the spectacular aerial display of fireworks, the eardrum-damaging Super Lolo or just the harmless hum and toot of a torotot; a New Year is incomplete without these noisemakers and eye-pleasers meant to scare evil spirits away. Just remember to light up those firecrackers with caution.




2. Have a midnight feast

It is now time for Media Noche which means midnight in Spanish. Gather round the table and prepare 12 different round fruits to ensure monthly prosperity for the family; though some stick to 13 which is a lucky number to the Chinese. Sticky food on the table will allow good fortune to stick to you and your family. Don’t forget to chomp down those yummy pancit noodles for longevity.


3. Welcome the Rabbit!

It’s the year of the Metal Rabbit! Welcome the presence of this fluffy yet resilient and determined creature which kicks off in the Chinese New Year on February 3. According to the Chinese zodiac those born under this sign are serene, gentle but with a hint of persistence in them. Consult your local Chinese Zodiac Master or horoscope for matters regarding health, wealth, career, and love.




4. Other trivialities and superstitions

· Encourage children to jump to their vertical heights’ delight!

· Jiggle and jangle coins in your pocket to encourage the growth of wealth.

· Clothes with polka dots will also help in attracting good fortune.

· Don’t sweep your floor if you don’t want good luck to be swept away like house dust!

· Opening the windows and doors would also help in bringing good luck to your home so keep them wide open, but watch out for those mosquitoes.

May you and your family have an exciting and prosperous New Year!

Mango Picks: Filipino Christmas Songs

December 20, 2010 Mango Tours 0 Comments


by Roy Cagalingan

With a few days left before Christmas, carolers will once again fill the streets with familiar Christmas songs in anticipation of our Savior’s birth. Here are some handpicked Filipino Christmas Songs for your listening pleasure:

Jose Mari Chan- Christmas in our Hearts (composed and written by Jose Mari Chan and Rina CaƱiza)

A perfect warm-up to the season, this song evokes a familiar feeling to the coming of Christmas. Crooner Jose Mari Chan smoothly serenades and reminds us at the same time of the true meaning of it all.

Sarah Geronimo- Sana Ngayong Pasko ( composed by Jimmy Borja)

This is a fine companion to those who are longing for their loved ones. Other artists who have made covers of this classic include Sharon Cuneta, Jed Madela, Jolina Magdanggal, and Ariel Rivera. This version by the Pop Princess stands out among these other great renditions because of her ability to bring this classic to a new generation of listeners.

Gary V- Pasko na Sinta Ko ( composed by Francis M. Dandan)

Mr. Pure Energy’s sets aside his dancing shoes to add emotional intensity to this song’s sad premise. Also try the other interpretations by Christian Bautista, Charice, and Piolo Pascual.

Kukutikutitap-Joey Albert (Composed by Ryan Cayabyab)

Maestro Ryan Cayabyab’s composition beautifully gives life to the fascinating display of Christmas lights. The wonderful interplay of verse and sound adds a delightful ring to this classic.


Boom Tarat Tarat- Willie Revillame (Composed by Lito Camo)

Time to get a little feisty and sing with Kuya Willie! Get on your dancing shoes and dance to the infectious beat of this Christmas tune. This song is a perfect example of the Filipinos’ penchant for novelty with its fun and catchy lyrics.


May these songs fill you with the spirit of a Filipino Christmas!

Kamay ni Hesus Srine: The perfect place to recollect this Holiday Season

December 15, 2010 Mango Tours 0 Comments

Mango Tours takes you to the solemn side of adventure. As Christmas gets closer, let this be the perfect time to reminisce all the good things and challenges that made you strong throughout the year. Kamay ni Hesus Shrine, nestled in the heart of Lucban, Quezon, is the ideal place to recollect yourself and thank God for this wonderful year.

Kamay ni Hesus, known for its gigantic statue of Jesus standing at the top of the towering shrine, is a one of the biggest and known pilgrimage sites in the Philippines. This serene and sacred garden will make you experience heaven on earth with its cool, bright and solemn atmosphere. Healing Masses are celebrated in this place. Pilgrims and ordinary people from different places come and visit the place to be part of the miraculous event done by Fr. Joey Faller. After each Mass, people climb the almost 300-step shrine to touch, pray and be closer to the miraculous statue of Jesus. You can see the panoramic beauty of Quezon while you’re on the top of the shrine, making the long climb worth it and unforgettable.

So if you are planning to climb Kamay ni Hesus shrine, keep in mind the following reminders:

· Wear Comfortable clothes. Shorts and sleeveless shirts are prohibited.

· Bring a hat to prevent direct heat of the sun and water for dehydration

· Make a wish before climbing the shrine
