Witnessing Cebu's Sinulog 2014 (Part 1)

Despite the occassional drizzles, I appreciate the cool Cebu Amihan breeze as I began walking along Osmena Blvd with ate Yan that afternoon of January 18. Philippines for the past few days has been experiencing a lot more cooler temperature than normal, and we Filipinos just gladly embrace it, after all it's a weekend to celebrate. It’s the day the Solemn Foot Procession is happening and I can’t wait to experience this much loved parade.

From the streets, I can see locals with their families, patiently waiting for the arrival of the black image of Sto Nino. People wearing hats, cute kids donning their Sto. Nino costumes and tourists flaunting their ‘I Love Cebu’ shirts, all while chanting Viva Pit Senyor. There are cameras everywhere, helicopters flying above for like every 10 minutes. Surely, this is Philippine's grandest fiesta celebration.
