Kaamulan Festival is an ethnic cultural festival held annually in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon from the second half of February to March 10, the anniversary date of the foundation of Bukidnon as a province in 1917. It is held to celebrate the culture and tradition of the seven ethnic tribal groups—Bukidnon, Higaonon, Talaandig, Manobo, Matigsalug, Tigwahanon and Umayamnon—that originally inhabit the province. It is the only ethnic festival in the Philippines. (via wiki)
I came to know this festival last year, some of my friends enjoyed it much. I wasn’t able to be with them cos I don’t have much penny at that time. Not surprisingly cos I spend a lot. LOL 😛 You know, my friends really convincing me to come next year which suppose to be this 2012. Well, they don’t need to persuade me cos I’d love to come and enjoy watching some street dancing. So here we go Kaamulan 2012 is here… even last year we were so excited about this most awaited event. BUT. There’s a but. I’m so excited without even planning so well. Hell, I didn’t check the calendar dates. It’s important in planning, isn’t it?!
The BUT is, my friend just confirm that her father agree that we will stay in their place at Malaybalay, Bukidnon. Street Dancing is set on March 3, Saturday. It’s the main event. So, we will suppose to be there the day before the Saturday which is Friday, March 2. Well, March 2 is my mama’s birthday! I can’t miss that day out! It’s my mama. Kaamulan doesn’t really love me!
Speaking of mama’s birthday… any suggestion on what to do for her? LOL. Okay, every birthday..cake is always there, my sissy always got us one. 😀 The day before another day.. LOL confusing so.. few days ago, papa teasingly asked mama what she gonna prepare for her bday. Mama got always this beautiful yummy imagination… she mention ‘Mango Float‘ and blah blah blah, then papa cracked her up again saying ‘hey, wake up‘. LOL he’s bad 😛 ahaha
If I could only be given enough, I would certainly bring her to CANADA. LOL. Why? Well, I don’t know why mama love’s Canada.
Every time I ask her if where is she going every time she step out in the door, she always drop this line; always even before I start loving Canada:
Me: Where are you going ma?
Mama: I’m going to Canada! (with matching laugh)
Ahaha, and every time she’ll say that, I’m always looking for a word “OH” … LOL
Mama is lil crazy 😛
