Delightful Memories (Part 2)

San Isidro Festival (May 15th)

In this festival, we celebrate the feast of St. Isidore the Labourer(locally known as San Isidro). I am always excited to commemorate this particular festival, because every part of the San Isidro Street is filled with arcs that each has “pabitin” on it (hanging fruits, vegetables, and junkfoods). This is done to represent the act of “sharing” that is said to be San Isidro’s trade. People get the “pabitin” after the procession for San Isidro passes that certain spot. Usually, this is done in the afternoon.

I remember when I was 9, I cried because I was stepped upon by the excited crowd (plus I get to have some black and blue spots on my arms)ready for the pabitin. Nevertheless, it is fun to just watch the people getting the pabitin, and attending masses for San Isidro with your loving family and friends. Continue reading

A tower of passion and life-suport...

I know what’s on your mind right now. Let me guess. You are thinking of desserts and sweet cuisine, aren’t you? Well, this might disappoint you, but you’ve got a wrong guess. Ideally, this blog post is intended for something not just about any sugar cane spread mostly all over the so-called “ Sugar Capital of the Philippines”. Nevertheless it is about something deeper and much more meaningful. For me,it is greater than any sack of sugar sold for a million dollars and more important than any city in this world. What I am trying to pull out is their sanctuaries of art, religion, and history. Continue reading
