Last week the city celebrates the Kadayawan Festival. The festival that the City of Davao celebrates to give thanks for the bountiful harvest. This is one event that the people of Davao City is waiting for annually. This festival is very special to me because once I experienced the street dancing. It was one of the most memorable moments of my high school life. Seeing street dancing during the Kadayawan Festival brings back the time when I was there dancing with people watching and do not mind the heat of the sun. It was tiring and thirsty experienced but worth it I must say. And I will treasure that experienced forever.
Anyways, the memories brings back again because its Kadayawan Festival again. I witness the street dancing with my friend. Too bad I was not able to watch all of the participants because I get busy at home. I make sure to finish all the chores at home before going out. Also, get the kids settle first because I will be around to look for them. The city is so colorful because of the colorful costumes of the participants. It was really nice watching the kids dancing on the street smiling even under the heat of the sun. The contenders/participants now are really doing their best to win the first prize. Yes, the street dancing is a contest. Being able to dance and make people happy while watching is a priceless moment, they are all winners to be able to participate. Kudos to everyone! Till nest Kadayawan Festival.
One of the most talked about issue in the country is the burial of the former President of the country Ferdinand Marcos. He is dead more than a decade but not buried yet because the debate if he will be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (cemetery in the country wherein dead President, heroes, soldiers, etc.) is not yet finish. The reason many opposes if he will be buried in the said cemetery is because people do not consider him a hero or see him as the former president of the country because of the declaration of martial law during his term. He was blamed for the missing journalists and activist during his term. Even though, his supporters still believes and fight for his right to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
But this issue will end soon because the present leader of the country decided to bury him in the said cemetery. This was one of his plans (Pres. Rodrigo Duterte) when he was still running for the position of the President. Debates and rally here and there opposing the decision of the President, but the President is firmed to his decision. This is to end the gap of the people involved in the issue. The President, said that he has the right to be buried in that cemetery because once he was the soldier of the country. And I guess the president is right. Let us not fight over this long overdue issue. In my opinion, the President did the right thing. Past is past, let us forget what happened in the past for us to move on for a better country.
The brother has bought strings for his guitar many times already because the quality of the strings that he bought is not good. He misses playing his guitar but cannot play it anymore because two strings are cut/broken. He does not want to buy the same strings anymore so keeps on looking for a good quality of strings until he saw this DR Strings online. He reads the reviews and good feedback of the product. I guess the brother has found the one he is looking for. I guess I will be able to hear him play his beloved guitar very soon.

The Rio Olympic Games 2016 started few days ago. I have been waiting for this to comes because I will be able to see my idols and my favorite sports. Also, excited for the performance of the countries representatives. I am hoping and praying that the country will bagged a medal for it has been 20 years since the last time the country’s flag is seen in the medal tally. Well, everybody is wishing and praying for the good performance of the country’s bet. Since the country is known in boxing, everyone is expecting for a good outcome in the sports of boxing.
Last Monday morning, Hidilyn Diaz, a weightlifter made a history for winning the silver medal in her category. She ended the 20 years drought of the country. She showed to the world what she is capable of and showed to the world the heart of a Filipina. At last the country’s flag is to be seen in the medal tally courtesy of HIdilyn Diaz. To be honest I got teary eyes because I can’t believe that she finally made it. I’ve seen her in the last Olympic games four years ago and seen her failed. But her fighting spirit and her dream to bring a medal for the country did not stop her from doing it. Now, she finally made the country so proud. Thank you for the job well done Hidilyn Diaz.
The Olympic Games is not over yet, we hope for another medal for the country. Go go go team Philippines.
