Celebrate Kadayawan Festival and Win 10k worth of GrabFood



It is Kadayawan Festival once again here in Davao City and we are still in a pandemic. It is sad but it does not mean we all get frown faces on a Kadayawan day, right? Kadayawan Festival is one of the most awaited events in Davao City. It is a thanksgiving celebration of the abundant harvest of durian, mangosteen, pomelo, rambutan, marang, and many more. One of the highlights during the festival is the “Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan” or what we called the Street Dancing completion. Where a group of people chants and dance on the street wearing vibrant colored costumes that represent different kinds of lumads or a group of indigenous people living in the city.

Kadawayan Festival 2015

When we talk about Kadayawan, there should always be food festivals. This is where we catch up with friends, dine and drink while listening to a band. Oh, I miss this kind of event. I hope this pandemic will end soon so we can all go out freely without wearing a face shield and mask. But then again we have to adapt to the new normal. Let us strictly follow all the Government safety protocols and avoid going out to crowded places.

Let’s talk about Self-Care



During this pandemic, my mind opened to a lot of things. It teaches me how to calm down and take everything slowly by not rushing on things. To value small details and appreciate what I have. To be grateful for the life that He gave me. And to trust in Him by accepting the situation that is happening right now.

Last year was the toughest year for me. My family was challenged to fight the virus and it was the experience that built anxiety.  I was struggling to accept the situation. It came to a point that I was fine then suddenly overthinks, feel anxious, and start crying.  I told myself that this thing must be stopped. So I’ve been reading self-care articles that will help me overcome anxiety. To start with, I decided to make a morning routine to calm myself.
