The Moriones Festival of my home province, Marinduque, is one of the most famous religious Philippine festivals for its interesting premise: it centers on culture and religion in the country, with an emphasis on reliving the time Roman soldiers roamed the streets during Jesus’ crucifixion.
The thick fog, the verdant hills, the sea of clouds and the amazing view – thanks to a cup of 3-in-1 coffee, these things definitely catch my attention about an hour after being on the road from the city proper of San Carlos. Yep, I’m usually asleep during long road trips like these.
With all the different amazing destinations found in the world, it is quite hard to choose where to go when planning for a vacation. But sometimes all you have to do is take a closer look instead of looking so far away. Just here in the Philippines, we have more than 7107 destinations you can choose from. One interesting place that would make you feel like you are in the beautiful Maldives is the Manjuyod White Sandbar in Negros Oriental.
With all the 7107 islands here in the Philippines, there are places that are surely still bound to be undiscovered or not within the radar of most travelers. There are a lot of hidden treasures and hidden gems found here in the Philippines. And one is found in Barangay Dawis in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental.
The colors and motions, the beats and sounds – Dinagyang Festival is uniquely a festival of faith, culture and tradition. Today, I joined thousands of people in the streets of the City of Love and captured the colors, moments, and spirits of Dinagyang Festival 2017. Yep, the “Hala Bira, Iloilo!” still sounds in my ears!
Viva Pit Senyor! prititit!prititit! The colors, the dances, that prititit - Sinulog Festival is indeed beyond its colors and sounds - it's a beautiful fusion of culture and spirituality.
This year, I had the chance to witness and photograph one of the most colorful and most alive festivals in the Philippines, the MassKara Festival of Bacolod. For 2 days, October 22 and 23, I joined thousands of people in the streets of Bacolod, enjoyed the spectrum of colors, multitude of smiles and the beat! Yep, that song “tong-tong-tong pakitong-kitong” still lingers in my ears.
