I’ve encircled the date 21st of March with a red marker on my calendar and added a little flower on the side to mark the first day of Spring. The tropical girl in me was eagerly awaiting for double-digit weather and sunny days. Though we’re probably still weeks away from the spring bloom, I had a taste of it at Agence Le Bon Mot’s Pop-up event “Un Printemps Aux Philippines”.
It felt good to be home. I was surrounded by my fellow kababayans (countrymen), engrossed in deep conversations where the Filipino language could be heard from across the room. The event quickly turned into a mini soiree where they served a splash of Don Papa rum mixed with ginger Beer together with the Filipino spring roll Lumpia and our very own take on the Chinese dumpling Siomai.
The event took place at the small decor and accessories concept store “Storie” situated at the 14eme arrondissement. The curated selection from Aranaz, Beatriz, Buntal, Ethnique, Filip + Inna, Natalya Lagdameo, Otsirave and Zarah Juan will be available for sale until the 2nd of April
