PTCO hosts Songkran Thai food gala

In cooperation with the Royal Thai Embassy (Manila), the Rockwell Club and Rockwell Land, the PhilThai Cultural Organization (PTCO) will host Songkran Thai Food Gala Buffet, a charity event to benefit victims of calamities in Mindanao, on April 13, 2013, at 6:30 pm at the Rockwell Tent, Rockwell Center, Makati City.

Songkran is derived from the Sanskrit word “Sankranta” which means “a move or change”. Traditionally celebrated as Thai New Year from April 13 to 15 every year, Songkran is the most important festival for the Thai people and is a time for family reunions. It is also the Thai Water Festival, during which people pour scented water on their elders and family members to show their respect and to give good fortune.

This year’s Songkran in Manila comes with a 12-course buffet dinner prepared by top Thai restaurants, Azuthai, Bejnarong, Celadon, 8 Spices, Oody’s/Soi, and People’s Palace.
