Photographer's Note

The Philippines is a country rich in festivals of which I think no month would pass without a fiesta of a carnival-type is being held on any part of the country. Well, this is one of those and witnessing how the locals prepare for this event is such a good indication of how faithful they are (or, we are) up to this modern times to preserve this tradition which is a strong influence from Spain when our country was under their rule for over 330 years. A fiesta usually commemorates a patron saint like the one seen on this photo, the Sta. Monica.
