Aliwan Festival 2011 updates

I’m back! and with a vengeance! haha! nah, It’s nice to start my 2011 updates with a blast. Although i’ve had tons of shoots this year, i’ll be kickin’ of my journal with an update from the recently held Aliwan Festival 2011 which was held last April 14-16. April 16 being the final competition and streedance.

There are lots of good things happened during and after the festival.

1st: It was a sunny day! Previously held competitions were ruined because of the not-so-cooperative weather.
2nd: I came earlier than expected. Hence, more shots!
3rd: I was able to position myself on the photographer’s area to get a good view of the stage. (thanks to my standing stool)
4th: I was excited to see the winners of the Dinagyang Festival 2011 Tribu Pan-ay.
5th: They actually won and crowned as the Grand Champion! wohoo!
6th: Had a sumptuous dinner at Sizzling Pepper Steak in Harbour Square
7th: I was able to upload my photos in FB and Flickr in just a span of two days. Now that’s a record.

Nuff said, below are the results from the festival (courtesy of:
