Sinulog Festival in Cebu City 2013 is coming!

I am saddened thinking that I won’t be able to join and attend the celebration of the Sinulog Festival in Cebu City 2013 this coming January 19 and 20, 2013 for the very highlight of events.

I could still remember how I, my sister and my mom used to get ecstatic as early as these days for the celebration the past years. But since I just moved to my new place now and it seems very impossible for me to fly to Cebu City for a weekend, I guess, I would just have to accept that I won’t be able to personally feel the heat of the festival, try out the worship chairs in Basilica Minore del Santo Niño de Cebu myself and sway and dance to the music of praises for the Señor Sto. Niño.

Clark Hot Air Balloon Festival 2012

If any among you didn’t know it yet, I am a vagabond, I consider myself. But not fully yet. I just want to roam anywhere I think something new, spectacular, exciting things yet to be discovered are there. However, because I am a student still and I am determined enough to pursue this dream, my being an itinerant is hindered by such. Obviously, looking by merely just looking at those tempting excitements over the internet of those must-experience festivals and adventures in the country, is what I am overtly contented this time.

At the moment, my feet is pushing me hardly to take a plane ride to Clark, Pampanga, Philippines to experience myself the colorful Clark Hot Air Balloon Festival 2012.

Even how crazy I am getting in to that event now, I have nothing else to do but to watch uploaded videos from YouTube.com or simply browsing those images from uploaded and made available over Google pages.

If you’re in my shoes, what do you think to do to enjoy Clark Hot Air Balloon Festival 2012? Smiley

Girl-Bonding In My Space — Sinulog 2012

A few days ago, my mom and sister were here to celebrate with me the Sinulog festival, one of the grandest festivals in the country. They stayed with me here in my apartment since most of the hotels and pension houses were fully booked due to the influx of tourists and visitors to witness the parade and celebration of the Sinulog. Mom and sister had to bring bed clothing, like that from the White Company, with them as they spent a few days here.

As I billeted them herein my humble apartment, I made sure that they would feel comfortable and feel at home. I had to clean the space for them and made certain that I am able to provide for their needs while they are away from the comforts of our home. I had so much fun and they too, we chit chatted the nights away and had a wonderful girl bonding. It was really a well deserved breather for me.
