I was ecstatic when my dear Aunt Malen invited me to come with her to visit her T’boli friend last summer. She then animatedly pointed out a particular mountain just in front of Balben Family Cove, candidly telling me, “Sa kabila ng bundok nyan tayo aakyat”. I just smiled, thinking she was practically joking around. Next thing I know, I was going through the most exhilarating road trip experience of my lifetime!
Meet up with a T’boli Family
promotion video project for Lake Sebu. We did the shoot at their humble 'T’boli house' nestled just below the main building. It was indeed a fun shoot, nothing really formal, all the while we were chitchatting about the tribe’s culture and tradition. They also told me about their Helobung Dance Troupe and the many performances they did outside the country. Ms. Rosie has actually been interviewed many times both by local and international press.
Right after the shoot, we readied ourselves for our next trip, off to the House of Lang Dulay.
