it's the 30th sinulog in cebu! to know more about this festival -- click here!
it's grander than new year's here in our place and i swear, every year more and more people flock to cebu! it's not a mob but a tidal wave of people and all you can do is let the waves take you... even the rain this year couldn't stop the people from partying...
the family and i had our annual lunch at my tita's (aunt's) house in talamban and the above photos were taken on their steps. i couldn't eat much because i was sick the whole night and had painful stomach spasms -- almost had myself hospitalized if it weren't for the thoughts of sinulog motivating me to get through it. i mean, i don't want to miss the fun on the streets and stay couped up in a hospital room...after lunch, my friends and i hung out at a bar on the streets of mango, right near the actual sinulog parade... we did our own body painting (as seen below: my own painting of our group name right on my arm)... i took a few photos of the parade and the people (as much as i could manage since it's very crowded)... then we walked to ayala cebu to have a picnic on the terraces grounds and watch the fireworks...i'm very proud to say that i got through this year's festival SOBER...haha!
