It all started through the American, Chineese and Spanish dwellers that made food came to be known with filipinos as what it was stated in the website of http://asiarecipe.com/phifood.html "The Chinese who came to trade sometimes stayed on. Perhaps they cooked the noodles of home; certainly they used local condiments; surely they taught their Filipino wives their dishes, and thus Filipino-Chinese food came to be. The names identify them: All, of course, came to be indigenized—Filipinized by the ingredients and by local tastes. When the Spaniards came, the food influences they brought were from both Spain and Mexico, as it was through the vice-royalty of Mexico that the Philippines were governed. This meant the production of food for an elite, nonfood-producing class, and a food for which many ingredients were not locally available. Fil-Hispanic food had new flavors and ingredients—olive oil, paprika, saffron, ham, cheese, cured sausages—and new names. Paella, the dish cooked in the fields by Spanish workers, came to be a festive dish combining pork, chicken, seafood, ham, sausages and vegetables, a luxurious mix of the local and the foreign. The Americans introduced to the Philippine cuisine the ways of convenience: pressure-cooking, freezing, pre-cooking, sandwiches and salads; hamburgers, fried chicken and steaks." These examples paves the way of Filipino culture through food indigenization. American, Chineese and Spanish dwellers gives us a lot of legacy when it comes to food, they become an example to global economic development of our country. The tastes and savors of the legacy of our foreign visitors is still fresh in the minds of Filipinos especially the scholars who were doing various researches about the indigenization of food in our country. I believe that we can compete globally in terms of food not only with natural resources, through the food we endorse internationally spreaking many foreigners visit our country to taste the savor of our intrinsic food its nativity and nature that made the aliens don't hesitate to take a peek in our country. Especially when it was used as an intrument to eyes of all in front of television such as in the Living Asia etc. Filipino food for me can be used as a means of global development especially of the belief that foriegners and most of all the Americans were bound to be food lovers.
Therefore I can say about the food we are eating now a dayz which was influenced by our foreign visitors has changed in different styles like plain adobo became American adobo, garlic chicken and saute'd adobo, another example is the plain paella which became beef paella, seafood paella etc... And lastly The pancit bihon which became, Miki Bihon, Pancit habhab, Pancit Malabon, Pancit Palabok and Pancit Canton. These various foods that change now a days into a progressive style and taste to the savors of the Filipinos became an example of the global economic development of our country. Food is one example that the Filipinos adopted in culture of our foreign visitors.
Yes because Jeepney is one of the symbols of the Philippines, for me it depicts craftmanship and shows how the naturalistic beauty of our country. We can consider it as an art since it signifies the hardships and happiness of Filipinos in their work which can be expound in naturalistic art. Our oublicc transportation can also be used as a work of art as what it was said http://edisonism.com: " The Art of using the Jeep Body as the Canvas. The multi-colored Vinyl Stickers are cut-out like puzzle and pasted together as an image to complete the design. Enamel paint are also use in hand painting or Airbrushes being used as ways to design these Pinoy Jeepneys are called the JEEPNEY ART." Through the development of our country now a days Jeepney still can't be change, that shows us the culture of our country, As I qouted: "kita mo nga naman nagbago ng lahat kahit mga gusali at bahay maging ang mga palaisdaan sa dagat nagbago na rin sa pamamagitan ng teknolohiya at maging ang mga daan at lansangan sa lungsod natin nagbago na din pero ang Jeep nandiyan pa rin at handang tumulong sa mga pasaherong walang kotse." Jeepney as a means of art can also be a means of strengthening the economy, with it many employees can go easily to their offices with out the use of the car especially the penniless. Jeepney can be a strong provider of transportation that we can use easily to travel around whereever we want to go. To add more about Jeepney http://edisonism.com: "Jeepney or Jeep are the most popular means of public transportation in the Philippines. They were originally made from US military jeeps left over from World War II and are well known for their flamboyant decoration and crowded seating. They have also become a symbol of Philippine culture. Now produced from Chassis and Surplus Diesel Engines from Japan. Made by Filipino Craftsman by hands from the body assemble to a perfect piece of art Called the Jeepney Art."
I testify my statement as a fact in the culture of us as Filipinos that Jeepney art is one a sign of art of our country in various ways. For me it also can orient our country to the aliens that can develop our economy as a means of tourist attraction. Though technology has changed the world our country still remains standing in our culture through Jeepney we can still say that Philippines still speaks of our own culture since one of it's resources doesn't change until now.
