This weekend seems to be packed with events that you’re spoilt for choice. Rather, make that overwhelmed with options that you wouldn’t know which one to attend!
I will be going to two: The Aliwan Fiesta with Mr. Byahilo.com, and a bunch of Couch Surfing Manila members. Afterwards, we’ll be headed to a CS Manila birthday bash. My first CS party!
The Aliwan Fiesta is a yearly event anticipated by the many. Organized by the media outfit Manila Broadcasting Company (MBC), the Aliwan Festival aims to promote the rich, colorful and vibrant festivals of the Philippines. Through the Aliwan Fiesta, one does not need to hop from one island to another just to experience the non-stop streetdancing, and the loud drumbeating. No need to take a bus and roam all over Luzon and fly to Visayas or sail the high seas going to Mindanao. It’s all being carried here in the country’s capital, Manila. Get the chance to see Cebu City’s Sinulog Festival represented by the Lumad Basakanon perform their Dance ritual. See the Tribu Paghida-et of Iloilo City’s Dinagyang Festival perform their dance routine. It’s also your chance to see other equally colorful and beautiful festivals like the General Santos’ Kalilangan Festival, Zamboanga City’s Hermosa festival, Baguio City’s Panagbenga Festival and Maguindanao’s Padang-padang Festival. Its seeing all the country’s best all in just one sitting.
Since the the CS party would be held at the pool deck of one of the condominium buildings lining the Roxas boulevard, I was wondering if we’d be able to see the fireworks at the 3rd World Pyrolympics at the Mall of Asia?
