the way to celebrate

Save for the downpour of scattered rains, the annual Sinulog Celebration went, to say the least, jovial. By early morning the sun was in its blazing glory, so people who flocked to the streets never expected to get a cool shower from the clouds by early afternoon. Nevertheless, Cebuanos continued to celebrate with one beat, one dance, one vision. (Ok, that's basically the theme for the Sinulog.)

Because my memory still serves me right, I know for a fact that last year was little boy's first Sinulog and I am sure that he can't remember a single moment of it. This year would basically be the same. But then again, not really. We had more fun now and Angelo also had a pleasant afternoon, enjoying the company of relatives.

Even if the little boy won't ever mention this event when he gets to be, say five years old or so, here's a photograph to prove that he did get his share of face paint. Well, that's actually just some hypo-allergenic lipstick because, as protective parents, we don't want him to get a rash on his sensitive skin. (hehehe) Obviously, a show of his eagerness to have fun last Sunday is portrayed on the picture of him holding the wheel, eager to get going.

Sinulog is one of the many reasons why we love living in the vibrant island of Cebu. It's one big event that you can probably compare to the Parade of Roses in the United States, sans the uber-extravagant floats of wonderful flowers and of big Hollywood stars. Of course, Sinulog is a Pinoy tradition in touch with a religious festival. And hey, Cesar Montano, Sam Milby and Anne Curtis joined the parade.

If you're one of those lazy-boring-people-who-don't-know-how-to-party, staying at home and watching the whole event on television would be much better. You might not want to get stuck among the hordes of people dancing in the Mardigras and enjoying the street party. But unfortunately or say luckily, we're not those kind of people - so we enjoyed the whole Sinulog experience. From the glamour and glitter, to the fireworks displays and to the band performances. Indeed it was a day of merriment with family, fun, food and booze. Even if it means staying up late (or early) until five in the morning.

Sinulog, isyagit ug kusog; (Pit Señor, Pit Señor) tanan magsaulog
Sinulog, isyagit ug kusog; (Pit Señor, Pit Señor) tanan magsaulog
Sisisinulog, sisisinulog
So until the next year...oh wait, by the way our village celebrates it's own version of Sinulog a week after. So we still have another celebration to look forward to this coming Sunday. The partying never stops.

final dose:
hope you had your share of fun also.
