Mask Me In Smiles

Three different festivities fast approaching. 
Each different from another. 
Each unique to the place it is held and 
each giving off different energies from the people who celebrates it.

 If I were to choose from Hermosa Festival in Zamboanga, Lanzones Festival in Camiguin, and MassKara Festival in Bacolod?

I would love to go to any of these. 
But I, honestly, turned like a kid just watching those colorful photos of the smiling masked performers. The photos I’ve seen and the blogs I’ve read about other people experiences about it are awesome — with that, the MassKara Festival had won my heart!

Every October 1 – 19, Bacolod City, the “City of Smiles” celebrates the MassKara Festival with her goodness of life — through food, dance, music, sights, and festivities… This years theme is “Celebrating the New Icons of Bacolod.” It would be nice to fly to Bacolod City and experience the vibrant festivity this City of Smiles has to offer!


Why do I want to experiencejoin the MassKara Festival?
Well, because….
… …of the three, it’s Bacolod City that I have yet to visit, and I want to have that first hand experience everyone seems to be ecstatically talking and blogging about! Best of all, it’s accessibility in air, land and sea travel makes in a travelers must stop spot!
… …I wanna check out the food, it’s people, and the colorful ensemble the performers wear! Nothing beats their upbeat, lively and happy masks and energetic dance moves. I, definitely, believe I need that, these days… 
… …and lastly, I want to be  in a mass or multitude of smiling faces, to be smiling from ear to ear sooooo much — that it would hurt so bad but I would be laughing and enjoying every single bit of Bacolod! LOL!
Right now, I’m so wrapped up with work, and getting stressed from here and there, that it would be nice to get a break from the hustle and bustle of my routine.

Why don’t you experience MassKara Festival, Hermosa Festival and Lanzones Festival this October. Airphil Express flies daily to BACOLOD, ZAMBOANGA and CAGAYAN DE ORO from Cebu and Manila. Visit www.airphilexpress.com to book!
