Save the date: “Mabuhay Germany” on February 22-23

mabuhay germany

When I think of Germany, I imagine myself being there with my daughter. All I see are her Instagram photos of the beautiful places, great food and beers. I miss her so much and it would be great to be there right now . I do plan to visit her this year so I am interested in learning more about the country. My last visit was in 1984 but I was only in Heidelberg and Cologne. Being in a tour group, I never got to be up close with the German culture.

A two-day trade and cultural show dubbed as Mabuhay Germany on February 22-23 at the Bonifacio High Street is timely. The event is on its 6th year and will jump-start the year-long commemoration of the 60th year of bilateral relations between Germany and the Philippines.

In 2012 event, there were 10,000 visitors, 50 companies involved and 32 as exhibitors in 26 booths in 600 square meters area.

Expect a lot of fun.

“German Karneval” is the theme of this years festivity. On Opening day, expect a Champagne brunch with marching band, followed by a panel discussion organized by Goethe-Institu Philippinen. The institute will have a topic on “Learn German, Land a Job”. There is an advantage of learning German for Filipinos, career-wise. Another event is “Move to the German Groove 2”, which is open to the song and dnace competition, open to all high school students. Full mechanics is facebook.com/goetheinstitutphilippinen

An afternoon sing and dance contest will warm up the guests, after which an exciting “Groovy doovy” Germany Night party ensues.

I am looking forward to Germany’s famous “Fruehschoppen”, a midday festivity of great food and beers widely held every Sunday in Germany , particularly in the Bavarian region. I was told that one can get a sneak peak of the OktoberFest during the “Fruehschoppen”.

There is also a corporate bingo game and table soccer tournament on Sunday afternoon. A memorable evening get-together will cap the two day event.

Aside from fun activities, there are product and service exhibition. Among the German companies involved in Mabuhay Germany festivities are Continental, Lufthansa, Volkswagen Schenker Philippines In., Bayer Philippines, Doehle Shipmanagement, Boehringer Ingelheim, Comfort Sole, bag Electronics and Royal Accent group.

Roland Odenthal, Chairman of Mabuhay Germany adds that this is a “celebration of a successful friendship of two nations that continue to enjoy robust growth through closes people to people and business engagements.”

The two day event is a great opportunity for you and me to experience Germany in the Philippines. So save the date: February 22-23, 2014 at Bonifacio High Street, Bonifacio Global City.
