Flores De Mayo

Flores De Mayo (Flowers of May) used to be a rather exasperating time for me as a kid. My old folks would force me to attend those bible classes along with dozens of other kids. The only incentive to attend then was the free asucarada (biscuits sprinkled with sugar, totally bad for your teeth) and cute girls. lol. I already had a feeling then that my parents’ insistence was so they could get me out of their hair and have some peace and quiet around the house even if it’s only for a few hours. What can I say, I was a lively kid. But enough about me.

For this merry month of May, I will be featuring articles and photos from other travel bloggers. I have come to the realization that no matter how hard I try, I will not be able to visit every nook and crany of the Philippines (i’m still hoping I could do it though) much less the world.

I have already contacted these folks and I am flattered that most have responded positively to my request. I am still organizing things so that these articles are given enough webtime so other folks can learn about places that this blog hasn’t covered yet.

Stay tuned!

    Yes, Flores de Mayo is a wonderful festival in the Philippines. Hope this festivity will go on so that our future generation will have a glimpse our traditional festivals. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

    Biscuits sprinkled with sugar probably wren't the best thing for your teeth, but at least you got to study the Bible. And those flowers are very pretty ones, too.

    Beautiful flowers. When I saw the picture I thought they were flowers for Mothers Day. I don't know if I've ever seen those flowers before, very nice.
