The event, held in eight barangays in Muntinlupa from Tunasan to Sucat, showcased Filipino food including adobo, tilapia, boiled eggs and vegetables.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi, Rep. Ruffy Biazon and city councilors led Muntinlupa residents in partaking of food on banana leaves.

“It is high time that Muntinlupa organizes this boodle fight in celebration of the Centennial Anniversary to welcome the festivity as one people,” said Allan Cacheula, chairman of Mandaluyong Centennial Commission (MCC) and city administrator.

The free event, which ran from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., was organized by barangays and supported by the Muntinlupa city government.

Muntinlupa city spokesperson Tez Navarro said that even though the boodle fight was a record-breaking attempt, the city government did not apply for any recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records.

The event was aimed to promote camaraderie, unity and volunteerism among Muntinlupa residents in celebration of the local centennial, she added.
