They say if something is so near & accessible to you, you’d take it for granted. Like the sports field in the campus for that daily run, or the nearby pools for a regular dip of exercise, and eating buko pie which is just minutes away that has people lining up for a doze of delicacy. Which for the reason mentioned earlier, I have meant to, but have not gone to in the past months! Another good example would be the Pahiyas Festival which is just an hour away from our place, and yet I only got to go there this year.
So here are the pictures of that fine fine day where I went with the students of the Purpose Driven Photography Workshop. We arrived there around 8am which is a pretty much right time since the crowds are just starting to build up and its not that hot yet.
Everything was just a feast for the eyes! I’m also posting in behalf of Garry his shots. He’s also into photography – lost it for a few years – but since we met, its slowly coming back. I like it when we shoot together, its a common passion we can share in our very different daily lives.
Lucban is famous for its Longganisa, here are two versions, a his & her shot. Be the judge which is better. Haha.
I loved the street music happening at the Pahiyas.
One house was actually throwing away slippers & money from the second floor to the people below. We got stuck in the riot. Crazy!
Kiping is the colorful decorations hung on the houses. Its made of rice & you can actually eat it too! I don’t have a picture but another must-try food during the Pahiyas is the pansit habhab. There are a number of restaurants to eat there like the famous Buddy’s but it would be best to get an early lunch to steer off the crowds.
It’s a must-see festival. Block it on your calendar for May next year
