Travel Diary: Dinagsa 2012 (Cadiz City)

We’re taking you to NORTH side this time around 😀
Another travel post (and spam) for this month 🙂 And its just January~ There are 11 more months to go.~!
I have clearly explained myself about this and that when it comes to traveling with my previous Travel Post so I think long introductions are not so necessary this time.
We invaded Cadiz City and explored its colorful festival, DINAGSA.
To know more about Cadiz City you can read it HERE.
I specifically planned out the flow of my photos for this post for I will not explain by words.
I will let my photos talk to you and let it show you what is Dinagsa all about.
I am hoping that you will feel what I felt as well. By these pictures I want to share how colorful and playful this festival is 🙂 Enjoy. \(^▽^@)ノ

Photography: Sinulog 2012 EPIC Trolling

Do not be deceived.
The people you will be seeing in this post are trained professionals to do shoot in the street without hesitation. No matter what you will make them do, they will POSE definitely.
RESTRICTIONS: The following photos are not for the faint heart. (connection?)
Okey I think that was a bit overrated for an introduction 😐 Forgive me for the high dosage of cocoa I had lately that cause me to write like this D:<
Now. We would like to share to you how to pose like a VOGUE model. (with an echo in the background)
(Serious talk) These were the extra photos we had during our Sinulog get away yesterday. And as I said on the earlier post, that this was an off theme for the festival so we will dump it HERE.
Starting off with this.
The TEXTMATE (guess why is that the title :D)

Travel Diary: Sinulog 2012 (Kabankalan)

We’re going SOUTH.

Yesterday I had my first ever Sinulog adventure with my Cosplay friends, Hitsuzen. Yes, this is my first experience of attending festivals outside Bacolod City. Sad it may sound but it is my reality. I am an adventurous person if given a “proper” chance but because of my father’s pre-historic beliefs I have been “restricted” for quite a long time. Not being able to do such things is very sad indeed considering my age and generation but I do not hate my father for that. Hate is such a  harsh description and he is my papa and I know he only wants the best and safest for his only daughter and child. (Guess this explains why? :} )

Now then, I was OF COURSE very happy that he did let me go (though he’s actually getting soft by and by). I believe papa is also training himself to learn the art of letting go for he and I knows that there will come  a day that I will have to go my own path whether he likes it or not (I’m just too good that I do not disobey him XD). Anyways, so there you go, my happiness yesterday was irreplaceable and thank you pops, :).

Sinulog Festival is Kabankalan’s City celebration of honoring the Sto. Nino. Other places in the Philippines also happen to have festivals that give honor to Sto. Nino under different festive name such as Ati-Atihan of Aklan, Dinagsa of Cadiz, Sinulog (also) of Cebu, Dinagyang of Iloilo and many more.
