Festivities in the Philippines: Kaamulan Festival 2011

During my visit in Malaybalay, Bukidnon, it was also the time wherein they were celebrating Kaamulan Festival which is the gathering of tribes all over the province of Bukidnon. This happened way back 2011 when I came to visit my friend who lives there. The streets were decorated with colorful banderitas. The place was lively and you can see the excitement and enthusiasm in every person you see on the street. Everyone headed to Kaamulan Grounds where the center of the celebration took place. It was definitely jam-packed. There were stalls placed just outside the stage selling different handmade products by tribes. I can barely moved by thousands of people celebrating the festivities.The activities started in the morning and ended late at night. Everybody had fun. After the activities, people went to bars to morning the night with booze and danced the night away. I will surely keep the memories I had during the Kaamulan Festival, it was cool and had so much fun.

I visited Bukidnon to meet a long unseen friend who is a local resident of the province. I traveled a long, long way from Manolo Fortich to Dahilayan to Malaybalay to Maramag to Dangcagan to Kibawe. If I have known that Kibawe is almost the boundary to North Cotabato, I should have gone to Kidapawan City.

Anyway, in Bukidnon, I’ve been to Dahilayan Adventure Park and headed to Malaybalay City.

After, I arrived at Malaybalay, my friend told me that she will take me to one of the resorts in Bukidnon and that is RR Family Spring Resort which is located in Maramag, a 3-hour travel by bus from Malaybalay City. When we set foot on the resort, I was amazed for this is the only resort I’ve seen so far that has a lot of swimming pools. If I am not mistaken, they were around 9 swimming pools. But I only tried the 5.5 feet deep pool since I know now how to swim recently. I love it there.
