Early this month, our barangay (village) in the Philippines had celebrated once again our yearly fiesta in honor of our patron saint. My family and our relatives had a great celebration. The festivity is usually highlighted with lots of food, drinks, dancing, karaoke, carousel and a lot more of fun stuff. The outdoor speakers that my brother has brought home from working abroad was very useful. It made the karaoke sounds better and louder. In festivities like this, the louder your sound system can get the better it is. In fact, the organizer will sometimes hold a contest "battle of the blocks" which means that the block of the community with the loudest sound system wins! This time of the year is considered to be the merriest time of the year in the community. I can't wait to experience it again! Hopefully soon!!!
