The Kanlaon Serenity

Tribo of The Freeman invited me to come with him to Kanlon in Negros.. i was hesitant at first. many things inn mind and some obligations to be done. but i realized that somehow its for once in a lifetime experience. that point, i started to get the leave weeks before the date set for the trip. i was lucky enough to finally break free, i was committed to lock my self on sunday june 28 for the sunstar sportfest, lest i gotta go. i was asking permission 3 days before emphasizing that i cant attend. the event was something i look forward too, but what if i have to be absent and enjoy the moment. anyways, always had things right after that. later, i find myself, sitting in a cab with tribo and ate debbie of the freeman, for the city link. then found my self in Toledo city for the ferry going to negros oriental. In the mountain top, a la baguio city, i finally came to read, Kanlaon. Whew, a trip for the day and it pays to check the palce again since i came there 2002. we were ushered to Kanlaon pension house via trike ride from the bus terminal. we were greeted with locales and organizers and candidates at the pension house. i need to grab some true rest, but before that i have to fill the rumbling tummy. We headed to Mang Julies eatery with Marlon Wafer, Mark, AVince the designer, Tribo and Mami Debbie. we had the sumptuous meal of adobo, well milled rice and of course some veggies. how can i go starving when im so full for the sight and sounds encountered. later at night, i was wowed by the ingenuity of the people of negros, a true negrense occupies the craft of creating headresses in all forms using various materials which are indigenous incorporated to the theme of their place, the candidates which u i told myself 30 percent gays and 70 percent male. How did they got into the pageant well, i dont know, they were there.. they exist. Few i've met but i become the kanlaon way. saw Torib there, that make-up artist way back Jonas Borces time, Dumaguete drum beaters, and the other accompanying band. it was filled with colors and good sounds. had some cute dinner over the tiangge area, and of kors, the party till 8.30 am. had my sahre of rhum coke and some people. this was was just the party begins, had the distressing beer drinking at the Guihulngan port, with the gays fro Cebu. i had fun, i had the experience at the ferry and slept at the bus going home. Hope for a repeat
