Minglanilla Fiesta!

Saturday was Fiesta here in Upper Calajo-an, Minglanilla and a pretty busy day. It was a good day to meet a lot of relatives I hadn’t seen in a while and in many cases had yet to meet. Mainly started with lots of eating and a steady flow of people arriving at my parents in law which continued throughout the day and into the night.. the beer drinking also started a bit too early for me as I had mainly snacked at food when I ate as I wasn’t hungry at the time. Due to a bandstand being erected on the main road up unto our location I had also decided to make sure I didn’t need to go out as usual things get a bit dis-organised when there are bands playing or other events going on. Because car parking goes to more abandoned than parked and people will stand in the way rather than move.. Which April’s uncle experienced on the way in and being a fairly important Colonel for Cebu April’s father helped to keep things on a low-key and happy affair before something serious happened. All in all a good day with lots of chatting beer and food then eventually the day fell into night and we were still drinking and eventually I ended up watching a live band outside one of the smaller houses. The drummer being one of April’s cousins. I’m hoping that I can help get them some work as they’re a pretty good cover band just need a bit of organisation to get the music to flow better. Eventually at 5:30am (yes AM) the party was over and time for bed. To say I was hung over was an understatement I eventually woke up around 3pm and still recovering from the effects of too much alcohol and not enough food and water. Still it was fun.. although its time to cut out the beer for a few months as there has been celebrations every week lately.
