Kari na sa Negros Trade Fair!

It has been almost five years since I moved here to Manila to study and eventually to settle but I would always have cravings of things back home. The food, crafts and everything that’s special, I would ask from my relatives to bring to me when they visit Manila. Fortunately, there is an event that caters to my longing soul and Manila friends who love Negros, that is the Negros Trade Fair. Negros Trade Fair is the longest running Provincial Trade Fair in Metro Manila and is now on its 26th year. Apart from being staged in Rockwell Tent every year, what makes it special is that it presents a variety of Negrénse products that we can surely be proud of. My fellow Negrénse blogger, Jojo Vito, shared to me the schedule of events for the Trade Fair:
