Fiesta Fever

Cagayan de Oro is beginning to be enveloped by the festive fiesta mood. Everyone loves a celebration; it is a welcome respite to all the negative spirit around us. Choking traffic, erratic weather conditions, crimes in broad daylight, and everything else under the heading of BAD, notwithstanding, we keep on finding enough reasons to be eternally grateful for our existence:

“At least we never get stuck four hours in traffic. ”

“At least when it rains flood waters subside quickly.”

“At least we can go malling without expecting to be blown to bits and come home in  a cardboard box.”

Things like that, gud.

A thanksgiving of sorts.

Parades, pickpockets, pageants, fairs, mga mangingilad, mall sales, police visibility, street dancing, free concerts, garbage, hang-overs, stitches, bruises, 1000 calories beyond the daily recommendations, walay klase, a loooong weekend.

Happy fiesta to all fellow Kagay-anons!

Eat (with moderation), drink (with moderation), and be (responsibly) merry!
