This is my second time to write about a Sinulog Festival in my blog. I just can’t stop myself in sharing to you people the elegance of this event this year. Sinulog 2014 was a blast and so far, it is the most peaceful sinulog that I have ever witnessed. Last year’s sinulog was a bit wild, but Sinulog 2014 was a whole lot more of a crowd. Each year, sinulog’s crowd would evolve. This year, we just had the craziest street party. It is where social statuses is of no regard. It is where the less-fortunate people, the middle class, and the elites would meet and just be friends and have fun in a clean way.
It is the only day where Cebuanos would be “AFK” and just be out in the streets. It is the time where real Chats would happen; not just facebook chats or any IMs. It is where the real social networking happens.
It is so nice to see that even though technology tends to ruin the social life of Cebuanos, there would be a day where we would just forget facebook or the internet just to meet real people outside the streets!
Here are some of Sinulog 2014’s sneak peek: you wouldn’t wanna drive here for sure!
these people are dancing without music. just all of them chanting and shouting “pit senyor!”
The Best Way To Avoid the Crowd! lol
The Parade: Good thing we got a good view from here.
As Always, Sinulog 2014 has been so colorful and lively.

Sinulog would not be the grandest festival in the Philippines if there is nothing about it. Truly, it offers you the best experience of party rockin’. There were about 4 million estimated tourists who flocked the Metro for the celebration. Next year, it would be even better. So now you have the glimpse of what sinulog is, you better not miss the next Sinulog! And oh, in case you did not know, it is always on the third Sunday of January. See you next year!
