Pit Senyor!

Posted on Jan 16, 2010 under blahs, events | No Comment

For the Cebuanos, the festive and jovial mood does not end after Christmas or new year’s celebration. The celebration is kinda extended because of the Sinulog festivities. The festival culminates with a grand mardigras every 3rd Sunday of January. The mardigras is just one of the many activities people are excited about.

Sinulog 2009

Posted on Jan 20, 2009 under blahs, events, my photos | 5 Comments
I know, there’s much photos and stories about the Sinulog that you can read and view already. But let me share my little post anyway.

Sinulog is the most festive. Most celebrated. Most visited social occasion in the country if i may say. And the most awaited affair by most if not all Cebuanos. It’s more than a week long celebration that culminates every 3rd Sunday of January with a grand mardigras participated not only by Cebuanos but by other neighboring provinces as well. New York crowd scene? Hongkong scene? Far cry from the Sinulog scene? Almost!

just striking a pose in the stands… never really watched the parade this year… went out only in the evening to watch the fireworks


Glorie with the Sinulog participants
(they must be tired already, they’ve been dancing since morning)


watched 3rd String play in The Terraces after the fireworks show

Now, Cebu is back to its mellow atmosphere…

happy halloween!

Don’t wait ’till she looks at you! She has the gaze of a monster!! :D Since yesterday, traffic is already congested especially in streets and crossings where public cemeteries are located. I can just imagine the jampack of people tomorrow. Honestly, i don’t like the sight of cemeteries. All the more that i don’t like to visit. I get suffocated and i think i’ll just pass out any moment because of the heat, crowd, smell and everything. Then again, i should pay homage to my departed loved ones.

While halloween costume parties are very common in other countries, i have to say it’s a pitty because their cemeteries are unfrequented. They don’t even recognize what really All Souls Day is for. Well, it all boils down to tradition. While we also have halloween parties here, i haven’t really gone to one. And i know it’s fun! Hhmnnn….

On a lighter note, what excites me most about halloween are the ‘kakanins’ like puto, budbud and biko! Yummm!

So, everyone, happy halloween! :) Hey, what’s that thing on your back???
