Mallgoers recently had the rare opportunity to Shop, Taste, and Celebrate with 26 countries during the recent International Mini-Bazaar and ASEAN Food Fest at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall. A joint project of The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the International Bazaar Foundation, Inc. (IBF), and the ASEAN Ladies Foundation (ALF), in partnership with SM, the event aimed to foster and strengthen the friendship shared between the Philippines and other countries through sumptuous food, music, and signature products. Meanwhile, the ASEAN Food Fest showcased signature dishes and various cuisines from the 10 ASEAN member states.
