Happy Fiesta, Cebu…
Yesterday was the 30th year of Sinulog celebration in Cebu City. The Sinulog 2010 officially started with Mañanita Mass at Basilica del Sto. Niño on 4:00 AM and followed by 6:00 AM – Pontifical mass with His Eminence Ricardo J. Cardinal Vidal. The Sinulog 2010 Grand Parade Carousel kicked off on 9:00 AM, where different contingents; street dancers, float, and higantes were gathered in there designated base station.
We left our home from Liloan to Cebu City at around 9:00 AM but because of heavy traffic, rerouting, no entries and walking, we reached my parents house at around 11:00 AM. As part of the celebration, food and drinks were everywhere. We passed by a lot of food stalls but a lot of foods were in the “to be avoided” list given to me by my doctor.
When we arrived at my parents house, our neighbor cooked 2 lechons but I can’t help but only to look at the them as it is in the top “to be avoided” list. There was no lechon in my parents house because everyone knows I can’t eat such (for now) so they sympathized. There is only 1 fish cooked and intended for me, the rest of the food were pork and chicken – but all meat.
Cebu City celebrates its annual Sinulog feastivity that marks its 30 grand years of honoring the miraculous child, Sr. Sto. Nino.
People from different walks of life will witness and enjoy the carousel-type street dancing in 2 categories – sinulog based and free interpretation. Along the joyous mode of the day, food and drinks are everywhere. And on evening different street parties will heat up the night.
