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.
