|ARRIVING AT 9AM|
|GRAB ALL YOU CAN AFFAIR EVENT|
In the Philippine history , fiesta or festival is celebrated all year round. What i will feature today is a colorful feast being celebrated in Lucban,Quezon every 15th of May honoring San Isidro Labrador which is well known as Pahiyas festival . It is a farmers thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest with a grand decoration and display of houses full of colorful rice wafers, fruits and vegetables …
The sun was out in its perfect version of a bright day. And It was a day begging for a walk. =) And its also a special day for all of us since it was our first time to witness the glamorous event . The house full of decorations are indeed glamorous. Colorful Kipings were twinkling in windows of all houses there… so beautiful . Anyway, the highlight of the festival is a procession along the streets and I guess they were almost everywhere…The town was filled with crowd taking pictures. A couple of blogger friends were there. I also enjoyed the pansit habhab and kiping. It’s a free-for-all, grab-all-you-can affair with suman-sweet, sticky native rice cakes-as the center of contention.Rest assured, whether you get handfuls or just a mere mouthful, the Mayohan sa Tayabas will leave you wanting for more – suman, of course! You should try it when you visit Quezon.
As i previously mentioned, each house has to outdo each other in decorations since it is a competition for their creativity. And after the event, and the awards are given to the owners of winning house, the decorations will be thrown away to the huge flock of people as freebies … ( best things in life are free=) ) … For the other houses, those kipings ( rice wafers shaped as leaves) , that were used as decorations are cooked and eaten as rice chips. The event has been a source of excitement for us…
