Skywatch#43 Kadayawan Skies

Thankfully, the skies were clear during the Inda-Indak sa Kadalanan (Dancing in the Streets) event. Sweats are better than rain. For sure, the dancer-participants would look pitifully soggy if there was rain. Here are some of the photos I took..

My World#83 Kadayawan 2010: Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan



Kadayawan,indak-indak sa kadalanan,Davao City

This year is the 25th year celebration of my city's Kadayawan Festival. One of the most popular festival in the country, it is a well-anticipated and well-attended event. For a local like me, it is a source of pride and joy to see the heritage and culture of my city and its indigenous tribes.

Indak-indak sa Kadalanan (Dancing In the Streets) is one event of the Kadayawan that attracted thousands of onlookers (locals and foreigners) all through the years. In this event, students or groups of dancer-participants showcase the costumes, dances, legends and myths of the indigenous tribes of Davao. The competition is quite stiff and big prizes are always at stake.

My World#82

Photobucket

Nowadays, I spent my days mostly at the funeral home to attend to the wake of my father. Lack of sleep and loneliness are my constant companions. I am really grateful for the people who came and went to visit us. Their presence somehow filled in the gap that we are experiencing in our lives right now.

Furry friends are more than welcome too..

My mother wanted the traditional nine day wake but I wanted it shorter considering that the longer wake would entail more sleeplessness nights and more stress for us. We haven't recovered yet from the several nights of lack of sleep when my father was hospitalized prior to his death. In the end, we agreed to cut the traditional nine-day wake to eight days.
