Here in my country, there is what you called "sinulog festival" in Cebu. Many foreigners went here to witness "sinulog festival". It's a street dance parade were group of people wearing ethnical costume and having this weird make up and then dancing along the street. Sometimes, when people comes near to them they smearing and applying grease and charcoal in any part of their face or body. So, they keep run away. That's they enjoyed a lot! Wanna witness this parade? Come here, I'll escort you. hehe

yes I was there last October at Lucena. There is a certain restaurant there who prepared pansit hab-hab.I loved it! I heard at Lucban that there is a homemade longganisa that is very popular too. I wanna try that one if I can visit again in there. I'm too curious of how tasteful it is.

I want you to know that maryland was the breadbasket of the revolution we provided the means to get food and arms to the revolutionary army and we took the prisoners and held them while the war was fought in other parts of the colonies. We then provided ground for what is now our Capitol and have been providing for our country since its inception
