giant lantern festival 2013

Posted on: December 30, 2013

was already near the bus terminals but i had to rush back home, actually, to get my dying ge camera before going to san fernando for the giant lantern festival. ahem, courtesy of miming who borrowed my ipad, hoho. he’s family anyway, no biggie. i should really get another camera though but but but… priorities. been saving up for some trips and then there’s the stock market… anyhoo, i was able to catch a later bus to dau and took another one to san fernando. huzzah!

by some miracle, i arrived ten minutes before the show, lol. i was able to find an excellent spot just in front of the trucks carrying the lanterns. by the pixxors’ angles, you can actually tell where i was standing, hoho.

first up was baranggay san pedro‘s lantern. it was a giant snowflake with rainbow colors.


it was followed by baranggay del pilar. their lantern had more christmassy colors.


i think baranggay sta. lucia was third place. it looked like a festive flower to me.


baranggay san juan nepomuceno had an angel! it was adorbs, but then it went on it’s disco-casino mode and turned into a giant bling roulette.


baranggay del carmen was in second place. it was very pretty. the kind that makes you feel all girly and flowery.


and then we have the winner, baranggay telabastagan! oh man, it was ozummm! it was in sync all the time with the music and it did this amazing half golden colors and half christmas colors thing.


baranggay san nicolas‘ lantern is a giant sun-star. my friend shane will love this one. plus, it was the most christmassy, it did say merry christmas!


and last but not the least, baranggay dolores‘ very nationalistic lantern! this parol is definitely for the filipino christmas.


they lit the lanterns again in sets and then all of them afterwards, my eyes feasted on all those colorful lights.


i’m slowly getting used to these bus rides all by myself, haha, but still, it’d be nice to be with max, miming, maki, shane and friends in these adventures. i’m hoping they’re not too busy next year. so eun, i heard pampanga has some exotic food, will go back soon!

yun lang.
