An Waray Party-list once again produced this year’s tuba festival, aptly billed as the “3rd Oktubafest” last October 23 at the Leyte Park Convention Center, Tacloban City.
Hatched as part of the continuing efforts to promote the region’s cultural heritage and the coconut and the tuba industry in Eastern Visayas, the Octubafest showcased the local coconut wine, tuba.
The day-long affair also featured a photo essay contest, the on-the-spot kawit (tuba container) painting contest, a tuba wine tasting contest, a cooking contest featuring tuba-infused dish and kotil and several other entertainment numbers.
The festival saw the participation of several municipalities from all over Eastern Visayas with their respective tuba exhibit booths.
We recently attended an island wedding held in Calicoan, Guiuan, Eastern Samar.
An island wedding? you ask.
Yep. Something we all looked forward to to experience.
Specially since it was going to be held at Surf Camp Resort.
It was the civil wedding of Niña Bañez, the (only) daughter of our good friends, Tente & Leny, to her long time fiancee Ryan Cerdiña.
Congratulations, Niña and Ryan!
