The yearly Flower Festival in Baguio City locally known as Panagbenga 2013 divulged a colorful procession of the gigantic floats made of flowers. This was another blow to our tourism industry as thousand of visitors go to Baguio City to witness this vibrant celebration. Panagbenga is a Kankanaey word that means "blossoming of flowers," because during the month of February, the flowers from Benguet are in their season of Blooming. Many of the cultural practices in Baguio City are often portrayed in the Panagbenga celebration especially during the street dancing and float parades.
It’s festival time in Makati as they celebrate the official festival of the city, the Caracol Festival. Caracol 2013 was held last February 24, 2013 at the Circuit Makati in Barangay Caramona.

Environment and animal advocates will surely love to see the Caracol dancers as they vie for the championship in street dance competition performing with their colorful costumes and graceful dance steps.
Let us talk about this great artist over a hot cup of "soya"coffee.

And when you're done with your drinks, treat your eyes and soul with the masterpieces of Baguio City's pride, a sculptor, a painter, an art entrepreneur Ben-hur Villanueva.

sa bawat pagsapit ng gabing lipas sa gutom ang bituka ng isang batang namulat sa kalandian ng kanyang ina, tanging ligaya lamang ang kanyang nadarama tuwing nauulanigan ang bakyang sa eskenita humahampas. isang plastik ng pansit galing kay nanay ang bubusog sa bitukang nilasap ang hangin na kanyang natatanaw sa wala. masarap.
maaga pa sa pagtilaok ng manok, gising na ang bata. magsisimula na sa kanyang ekspidisyon sa kalsada. ibat ibang bulong na kay lakas lakas ang maririnig at pinaguusapan ang bata tuwing lalapit ito sa mga tao. hindi kailangan ng bata ang inyong awa. sa katauhan ni pepe, di mo masasabing may puwang sa kanyang isipin upang hindi makita ang kasamaan sa paligid at tanging kamusmusan lamang ang kanyang alam. marahil bata nga sya ngunit ang pagkainosenteng akala nyo kay pepe ay isang kabalintunaan. si pepe ay maraming alam. ang kalsada marahil ay mayaman sa eksenang tanging si pepe lamang ay may saksi.
