Aliwan Festival

I could use an energy refill from you if life is like Mafia Wars. I came late to a Digital Photographer Philippines Mandaluyong Group rendezvous. I was the only one they're waiting so we could go to MOA. I was quite hesitant because of the weather. Damn sunny. Real sunny.

There was only like 12 delegates on the 1Million-prize-contest. Every group represents a province outside the metro. Every team donned colorful garments, make-up and even hairstyles. I don't know if this list completes the Contingents:

1. Panagbenga Festival – Baguio City
2. Kiling-Kilingan Festival – Penablanca, Cagayan
3. Caragan Festival – Mabalacat Pampanga
4. Halamanan festival – Guiguinto Bulacan
5. Halamang Dilaw – Marilao, Bulacan
6. Boling-Boling Catanauan, Quezon
7. Lapay Bantigue Festival – Masbate
8. Kasanggayahan Festival – Sorsogon
9. Dinagyang Festival – Iloilo City
10. Kasag Festival – Banate, Iloilo
11. Pasaka Festival – Tanauan Leyte
12. Tuna Festival – General Santos City
13. Tamfaken Lum-alay – Tampakan South Cotabato
14. Zamboanga Hermosa Festival – Zamboanga City
15. Buklod Festival – Maguindanao
16. Padang Padang Festival – Parang Maguindanao
17. Talakudong Festival – Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat
18. Pakalog Festival – Pasig City
19. Pajotan – Kalookan

Contingents were obviously tired even before the street parade started. All dried up from the sun. Good thing water was abundant, SM people took the advantage selling water for 20pho. I know the original price is 18php inside the mall.

Photographers, pro or not are also over the place taking every shot they need.

As the contest started, I had to rest at the back of the photographer's area and decided to go home later on. I didn't want to see the street dance at all. All my energy has been used. I couldn't stand the heat of the sun.

Anyway, here are some of the moments I have captured. Enjoy!
