Nasugbu, Batangas – Kakanin Festival Making Contest

November 30, 2013 we were invited to witness the SUGBUAN FESTIVAL of Nasugbu, Batangas. The Mayor of the town Hon. Mayor Apacible welcomes our group to cover the event.

We arrived at the town proper at around 9 am. Greeted by people of Nasugbu we started to cover the first event of the day, the KAKANIN Festival. Where different Barangays, prepared their special Kakanin or Rice cake to be the judge. People are excited and of course so do I. I wanted to taste all the Rice Cake they are making. So I talked and take a photo of each contestant.

Oh I must tell you, it’s not easy to cook this Kakanin or Rice cake. You need a full-strength to mixed the ingredients until it is totally cooked and ready. 2 or more people are needed and another back up to mix it up. But when it’s done, I must tell you, it is truly worth your strength.

Those are just some of the Kakanin or Rice Cakes that are made that day. Tasting each and every Kakanin truly made my day. Different barangay, different Kakanin, and different tastes and flavors. I want them all. No more diet at this time. I must say, one amazing experience and adventure again in this Kakanin festival in Nasugbu, Batangas. I want to go back next year.
