Sinulog – Pit Senyor!

Sinulog is by far the grandest festival Iโ€™ve ever experienced in the Philippines. It is an annual cultural and religious festival held every 3rd week (Sunday) of January.

Aside from its religious significance, Sinulog is also famous for street parties and the grand street parade that practically lasts the whole day.

“Sinulog” coined from the Cebuano word – Sulog which means “like water current” that describes its forward-backward steps. According to historical accounts, the first Sinulog dance was danced by Hara Humamay (Rajah Humabon’s wife). It was when they received the Sacred Image of Child Jesus (Sto. Nino) – a gift from the explorer Ferdinand Magellan – that the queen danced in joy with the other natives following her.ย 

I will post some photos I’ll be taking this Sunday – the day of Sinulog itself.ย 


Here are the route maps of Sinulog to guide our festival goers;

Alsace France

Dreams do come true.

Alsace is a historical region in northeastern France, bordering Germany and Switzerland. It’s filled with beautiful small villages like one particular place called Riquewihr.

This old town is the perfect backdrop setting for fairytales i.e. Beauty & the Beast. Humming Belle’s song as we walked through this picturesque village. Charming and colorful houses, each has a unique theme of it’s own. And I even found the lovely fountain in this scene of Belle where she sat to read her book. The old town from the 16th century still feels the same until today and for me is the most beautiful village I’ve ever seen. I didn’t like to leave.

“Riquewihr – les plus beaux village de France”

Photos will be uploaded when I get back home, I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

We stayed in Colmer, another quaint town in Alsace. Its cobblestone streets lined with half-timbered medieval and early renaissance buildings. The gothic 13th century St. Martin cathedral took 600 years to built and stands tall in the central Place de la Cathรฉdrale. The area along the canals is known as the La Petite Venise (Little Venice). You can take a boat ride to explore the old fishermen’s district. 

Strasbourg. The capital city of Alsace. Being in the border of France and Germany, it was enriched with a unique combination of German and French influences. Its enthralling past gives this city a distinctive and endearing history.

We took a boat tour after visiting the gothic Cathรฉdrale Notre-dame that houses the astronomical clock. 

More to come so please like and follow ๐Ÿ™‚

much love,






He has Risen!

A joyous Easter to all!
