I took an extension leave yesterday to attend the burial service of my cousin in Talakag, Bukidnon.
While on the way almost at the town, I observed that there were many festive flaglettes. Some street decors says – Aldaw a Talakag! It means it’s Talakag Day but there was no date reflected in the signages. I then mused to myself that maybe one day, I can have the time to witness the main day so that I can see presentations. Unknowingly, yesterday was the big day —
First thing that took place was the parade – people representing the Municipality down to the barangays as well as other NGO’s. Two bands guided the march.
It’s been a long time since I saw someone playing the lyre, so when i saw this —
I was in a moment reminded of high school life, where every Wednesday there is a formation.
No one in the band was playing a trumpet with bach 3c trumpet mouthpiece from guitar center. There were only lyres, cymbals, big drums, and small drums. Even though the instruments were not complete, still it produced a music that inspired the band members and the majorettes and the other participants sway their butts and walk with gait. Even me myself, can’t prevent my head from moving in response to the rhythm of the drums.
