Kadayawan Festival, one of the most celebrated festivals in the country. It commemorates the town's thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest and blessings to each town's and tribes. It's celebrated yearly during August usually held on the second week. It's been an honor to participate at this event. Gladly, our school also performed during the Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan. It is participated in numbers of categories consists of participants in different schools, places, etc. Despite of the security measurements that was implemented during the whole event, locals and tourists didn't hesitate to go out, explore and enjoy what Davao City offers! Likewise, my friend (Dina) and I didn't waste any time. As early as 7 am, we were preparing for our cameras and lenses to be use during the event. It was sizzling hot that we had to roam around (of course, with our ID's) for us to enter the site. Since everyone can't enter the main stage/performance area then. Luckily, we have the Photographer's Pass. It was very different this time. It was unexpected for some reasons. But then, I'm glad nothing bad happened. Somehow, we did enjoyed covering the event (which we usually do every year). Well, so much for preaching. Let me share to you some of my shots during the Indak Indak sa Kadalanan 2013.

This is College. Going home late, paper works, film works, and any works you could ever imagine. We get it, preparation. Okay! So let me share with you our "Behind-the-scenes" during our 3-day film shooting. Exhausting but very very fun, I say! Found new friends and cherished new memories together with the gang which makes me so happy since there were no dull and awkward moments during the shoot. It was so weird 'cause the time was in a hurry. We have to catch up the time for the whole day from 8am and at least until 12 midnight. Good thing there's a spare battery for the camera. Work hard, play hard!

Hi there! It take long days before I post on my blog though, apologizing. Well, can I tell you how exhausted I am from the last week's errands, projects, exams and stuff you could ever imagine in a life of a college student. I feel like crying every time I think of giving up but it was never an option to me but I just thought of it when the world is like opposing me, if you know what I mean. You just have to sacrifice something to get it done. I think this month is very stressful! So much to do yet so little time. But anyway, I don't want to get sadness affect me so let me start with you this exciting blog post today.

Hello August! Can I tell you how excited I am for this month? Like... very very excited! Jam packed of activities and parties! Why? Because it's another year to celebrate the Kadayawan Festival. It's one of the biggest and grandest festivals in the country, tourists come to Davao for a week or maybe even a month to see and for the one week festivity. I am much more excited to tell you that there are lined up parties on the festival. Time to put on some dancing shoes then! I am lucky since our school's also participating on the event and compete on the street dancing category. Our midterm exams will be up ahead than any other schools (since we are Trimester) and yep, you will definitely see me capturing timeless moments on Kadayawan! Where? On the streets of Davao City, of course! Don't hesitate to say hi! ;) Speaking of which, back to the parties. If you're too awesome and definitely a party goer, here's for you (and for me too!)
