Hi Angelie

              Thank you for sharing this. This is a fesitval I have never had the chance to attend yet. I'm sure it would be a wonderful celebration to experience. To see all the traditional ethnic tribal dress. Many foreigners overlook and never get a chance too see and understand the rich and wonderful ancestry of the various tribal/ethnic groups in the Philippines. It is a great thing that the ancestry never be forgotten. Each unique. I have been blessed to see many. From the Ilonggo in the home area to the Igorot. God willing, I will get to experience this one day. Happy Kaaluman:))) Are you going to wear traditional Higaonon dress?:~D  Take care...  (still trying to figure out the proper way to pronounce kaaluman... hehehe)

  God Bless

Hi Angelie

                Thank you for the clarification on pronunciation. I have learned that sometimes in Tagalog and Cebuano one word can be pronounced two different ways and have two different meanings. I have made this mistake with funny results...  hehehe  Enjoy the festival this weekend. It would have been fun to see you dressed up in traditional costume and dancing:))) I would feel totaly safe going to that festival. I do not like that many stereotype Mindinao as being a dangerous place. Take care. Have fun.

God Bless
