Markable Goes to Tagum!5:06 PM
So I went to Tagum City under the Davao Bloggers group to behold the magnificent 3rd International Rondalla and 10th Musikahan Festival and to wander around the new found wonders inside the so acclaimed City of the Palms.Kudos to the City Information Office (CIO) spearheaded by City Information Officer III Edwin B. Lasquite who toured us around the famous landmarks of Tagum.
3rd International Rondalla Festival
After the closing ceremony we went to the food stalls just beside the new city hall to eat our dinner.Camwhored a bit and prepared ourselves for another event.The Musikahan Festival!
|Yeah.We certainly can do both! (Camwhoring while taking our dinner).|
10th Musikahan Festival
Perhaps the highly anticipated event of the night.Musikahan Festival, started with just plain dancing but later on I noticed that it wasn't just a dance number. . .they're now telling a story.Singing. .dancing..acting..a musical play in other words.It was entertaining even though the first stage play lasted for an hour and a half.The second Barangay to present brought home the bacon though! The first act taught us about how love between Christians and Muslims.The second dealt more about justice, curses and myths.It was funny (especially the goat) and party creepy because of the superb performances of the so acclaimed "aswangs" in the story.The 3rd one, I couldn't really remember! Hahaha.
Special thanks to Olan Emboscado and Tagum PIO Edwin Lasquite
P.S: Watch out for my second day in the City of Palms!
