Kadayawan Headdresses

The tribes of Davao and surrounding areas have always worn colorful clothings, jewelries and accessories not only during celebrations but also while going through their daily lives. Since Kadayawan festival gives honor and tribute to these tribes, the festival is always colorful, thankful and just oozing with enthusiasm and happiness. That's why I love it more than the Araw ng Dabaw (Davao City) celebration. Aside from that, I just love the colorfully creative and indigenous costumes of the contingents for the Indak-indak sa Kadayawan (streetdancing).

Here are some of the headdresses of the Kadayawan contingents.

The headdresses' style and color combination were also worn based on the stature level of the wearer in their society. Almost always, the more colorful and decorative headdresses were worn by the royalty.

Took this photos on the plane on my way to Cebu for some work-related meeting. We had overcast skies that day so I was pretty sure there would be lots of cloud formations when we got airborne.

My World#126 Durian Time

Photobucket

Perhaps it was the heavy rains that have been hounding us too much this year or perhaps there is truth about old folks' saying that durian harvest alternately change volumes every year. So, if there were too many durians last year expect to have a little less this year. We had too much last year that our local hospitals reported a rise in number of admitted patients due to high blood pressure (durian is well-known to increase blood pressure).

Last year was like a record harvest not only for durian but also for some local fruits like lanzones, mangosteen, marang, pomelo and etc.

It's already mid-August, durian time should have started late July. Sadly, the fruits that we have been expecting to appear especially durian have yet to manifest themselves on the streets. I miss my durian but gee, I am not buying if it's still expensive.

My World#125 Bread Talk In Davao

Bread Talk

It is finally here and Davaoeños are lining up to taste its goodness. Bread Talk is my favorite take home treat for my family whenever I get to Manila. Now that its Abreeza branch is already operating, it is just so easy to buy my favorite newly-baked bread.

Photobucket

My current favorite is the bread called Spring In the City. At P39, it's so much worth it. Baked in a roll with lots of floss inside it and a sprinkling of onion leaves outside, it was really good.

And this cute smiley bread has a cute name, JJ Baby.

My World#124 Kadayawan Festival

August is here again and I am quite excited for it. There may be too much rains nowadays but my favorite of all festivals is keeping my spirit up.

On the 3rd week of August, Kadayawan festival will come alive. Preparations are already underway and news have been circling around that there would be more visitors than ever before. While I would prefer not to have too many visitors during Kadayawan festival, there would be nothing much to do about it considering it has become too popular.

Photobucket


Kadayawan festival is a celebration of thanksgiving for the good harvest and blessings. The festival was patterned from the indigenous people of Davao's celebration of harvest season.

The festival is not only such a foodie's and shopper's delight but it has also become a photographer's delight for its vivid colors and pulsating sounds. Recent news revealed that about an estimated of 5,000 photographers shall converge to take photos of the week-long festival. I am raring to be at the front seat!

For more about the 1st MindaNow Photo Congress that will be held in time for the Kadayawan festival, go here for the details.
