  1. Thanks a lot, Gerry. I got to see the costumes and presentation of the main winners of the Sangyaw Festival. Excellent artistry and presentation. Hope to see the choreography on YouTube someday. I also found out how the Agtas’ bow is designed. I hope we’re able to replicate those bows here in SoCal.

    anyways, i just read your comment on my blog. thanks for dropping by. i just would like to clarify that i didn’t grab any photo on your site. the photo that i used in my header was grabbed from my former classmate’s friendster account. i don’t have an idea if she took that photo herself or grabbed it from any other’s site.
