An Electric MassKara Experience!

It was an hour after a wedding shoot at L’Fisher Hotel and I catched up with my wife to be at the Tourism Strip…

My wife and I started to walk along Lacson and start the Electric MassKara experience…

The sum of all her fears as to try to get hold of this snake…

P20 to get hold of this creature and have your photo taken…

and my wife managed to overcome the fear…

Electric MassKara floats were the main attraction along Lacson which gathered thousands who came to enjoy the electric experience…

No Charter Day Parade on October 19

There will be no Charter Day Parade on October 19 since the Charter Day was moved to the 1938’s Congressional Archives stating that it is June 18, 1938…

Mayor Bing Leonardia says the Banwahanon Award and the Search for the Outstanding Government  Employees will be given on June 18 as well.

October 1-19 will only be MassKara Festival activities only.

Images from Sugarlandia

Before the sugarcane heads to the mill – a lot of work have to be done…

Sugar workers are out on the fields…baring the heat of the sun – they continue to strive in order for them to survive…

The painstaking process of manual hauling that costs below P50 a day in Negros…sweet for the land owners and sugar barons – blood, sweat and tears for the workers…

Day after day the struggle goes on…
