In the Philippines, a long weekend is never complete without a family roadtrip, whether potentially traumatic or not.

Despite the mandatory awakenings at 5am to leave the house, or the incessant fights with your siblings about who gets to sit in front or by the windows, on hindsight, roadtrips make pretty awesome family-bonding memories, be it good or bad.

Recreate those memories now, but better prepared this time!

1. Adobo

Adobo doesn’t spoil easily, and tastes good when made hot or cooled to a room temperature. It’s an essential roadtrip staple that gives everyone enough energy to stay cooped up in a car. Bring on the Adobo!

2.  Sandwiches

An entire loaf of bread with fillings including ham, cheese, egg, lettuce and so on and so fourth, these were the roadtrip snacks that effectively solved random hunger pangs.

3. Piattos


Need I say more?

4. Coleman Cooler

Does this look familiar? Almost every parent has stocked up on one of these since the 80’s. If you want one to call your own, Lazada has them in spanking new colors and at an affordable price!


Get it at P1240 for 6L cooler and P1769.75 for a 12L one at Lazada!
