I Love Holidays

It will be a long weekend to all the people in the Philippines after the MalacaƱang declared August 29 and 30 a non-working holidays.
August 29 is declared a holiday in commemoration of the National Heroes Day and August 30 is a holiday also in observance of the end of Ramadan of our Muslim brothers and sisters which is known as Eid’l Fitr. Eid’l Fitr is an Islamic festival of renewal, reconciliation and peace that marks the end of the holy month of fasting.

Therefore it is a good time for family bonding and doing some worthwhile things at home. For me, I will be doing my gardening, cleaning up some clutters and after that maybe I would treat myself to a salon makeover. Happy Holidays!

Kadayawan Festival 2011

Kadayawan Festival was one of the most awaited celebration here in Davao City. It was a week long celebration showcasing the different events and programs highlighting the bountiful harvest  and giving honor and recognition of the different tribes domesticating the Davao Region. This year's celebration emphasizes the ten tribes of Davao. These were the Tausog;  Matigsalog;  Obu Manuvu; Maguindanao; Bagobo Tagabawa; Sama;   Bagobo Klata; Maranao;  Ata;  and Kagan.
The highlight of the celebration was the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan. It was a street dance contest participated by different schools of different places in Mindanao. The most awaited event also was the Pamulak sa Kadayawan. It was a parade of big and small floats decorated with various flowers, fruits and plants which can be seen in Davao.

I have a great experienced together with my daughter and have fun taking pictures to the floats. It was ended a very successful celebration. Congratulations to the organizers and to the City Mayor Inday Sarah Duterte for making Kadayawan 2011 different from the previous years.

PR Update

I was really surprised when I saw my PR update of this blog drop from PR3 to PR1! I was super disappointed, but I know it is a normal cycle of a blog due to some reasons. Maybe I need to work out more in order to bring back my PR, and to my surprised again after a week of visiting to other blogs and updating my post it went up to PR2 and I was thankful then, that even if it did not reach back to PR3 still PR2 rank is a good rating. Thanks Mr. G.
