Feast of del Rosario 2010

One highly anticipated religious feast - especially among the ladies of Capul, is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary or Del Rosario. This is when they get to dress-up in multi-colored gowns as the procession of the Lady goes around town.

According to  Wikipedia "In 1571 Pope Pius V instituted "Our Lady of Victory" as an annual feast to commemorate the victory of Lepanto. The victory was attributed to the Blessed Virgin Mary, as a rosary procession had been offered on that day in St. Peter's Square in Rome for the success of the mission of the Holy League to hold back Muslim forces from overrunning Western Europe.

Baguio Tour with Salve & Juling

Whenever Abaknons visit a place, anywhere in the Philippines or abroad, it is customary for us to look for fellow Abaknons - who will just be too happy to play hosts to the visitors. The meet-ups thus turn out to be great reunions, making the bonds among Abaknons even stronger.

Should anyone gets to Baguio these days, among those Abaknons could call is Salve Bandal-Servito and Juling Cula. These guys are simply amazing as friends and yes, tour guides. :-)

(Note: The family of Col. Maly Cula and Analyn Manaog is also in Baguio. We missed them during the visit, but we hope see them there some other time.)

On orders of the DepEd, Capul's teaching corps trooped to the CAIS grounds on October 5, to grab the limelight and celebrate World Teachers' Day. The tribute program started at 10:05 a.m. - the specific time designated for entire country's educators to converge. 

With the theme "My Teacher, My Hero" students and pupils took turns presenting commendations, awarding certificates of recognition and donning garlands to their beloved teachers.
Mr. Jethro Magdaraog was invited as the guest speaker, while Mrs. Anecita Marzol and Mr. Domingo Castillo gave words of testimony.

Officers of Parents-Teachers Associations were also there to participate in the festivities.
