Diyandi Festival | Street Dancing

Image
Last September 27, 2011 me and few of the Iligan Bloggers went to the streets of Iligan to witness the Street Dancing. It's history because it's Jam's first time out of her 26 years in existence in this world to witness the Street Dancing. lols peace Jam!

We agreed to meet 7am in Jollibee Aguinaldo, but I was already caught with the crowd and text brigade everyone to hauler along Quezon Avenue because the Street Dancing already started. When I arrive the contingents were already in front of the Cathedral Church. We walk our way to the old Iligan Day Inn building were the contestants perform in front of a judge.

There were a lot of spectators in the streets I couldn't work my way out to be in front, too bad media badge were not available that time. As much as we wanted to go to the Buhanginan Hills Amphitheater to witness the final showdown, I got a call from Sir Pat of Tourism to go to Dunkin Donuts Quezon Avenue and meet with the media.

Although Jam's divirginiza…

Iligan City | Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House

Image
August 30, 2011, after our (me and my little sis) swimming class, we head immediately to Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House. I was actually able to visit every corner of the place last August 7, 2011. However, the pictures I took during the tour was not good enough to share and somewhere actually accidentally deleted, I decided to dedicate a time after our swimming classes taking pictures inside the Macaraeg-Macapagal Ancestral House

Ever since it was widely opened to the public, Iligan City Tourism already took over maintenance and management of the place. 



So here's a glimpse of what to expect there:

Iligan City | Pampam Falls

Image
After testing the waters of "the falls with no name (yet!?)" I saw another waterfalls just a meters away. I pointed to that direction and Bro Poloy said it's Pampam falls

The trail going to Pampam falls from the falls with no name, is quiet slippery and the presence of fallen branches of trees along the way is an evidence that  it is not that visited and not disturb by humans.
Pampam falls is known for it's skull like structure. The waters falling from the forehead passing by the eye socket like figure then to the nose ridge and eventually fall from the upper jaw like structure then to the water basin. Hmmmm I apologize with that kind of creepy description. hehehe The water is cold and seeing water sriders in the waters is a good implication that the water is not polluted. Just be careful with big mosquitoes though so it's quiet advisable for you to put on some insect repellants if you plan to stay a bit longer. 



So this is the 3rd falls that you would be able …

Iligan City | "The water falls with no name" (yet?)

Image
August 29, 2011 Afternoon I had a waterfalls adventure with Bro Poloy and Sis Jacqueline at Dalipuga. We are heading to 3 waterfalls that afternoon.






We first passed  by Dalipuga Falls, but didn't actually care to test the waters since there are people enjoying the place and we're thinking of heading immediately to the next one since the sky already showed his signal that rain showers might fall at any moment.






So from the Dalipuga falls, we climb a short steep rock wall and head to the second falls. 10 minute of walk we reached this green lushes which i thought was like that of a sound of music scene.. (♫♫ the hills are alive with the sound of music♫♫) hehe alright so we had to literally pass two (2)  to three (3) mountains for an up and down trail to reach the second waterfalls.


I checked with the city tourism and even Mr. Explore Iligan 9200 about the name of this falls but they are not quite familiar with it. If you ask the local, they still call it Pampam falls.






But wait, this …
