Viva San Francisco de Asis!

DSC06470

Photo Shot at 12:14 under the noontime heat!

Well, today is the Town Fiesta of my Beloved town, General Trias, Cavite. It was a fun fiesta but most of the happenings will be happening tomorrow including the procession of the saints around the town proper. Many people visit houses. Especially friends and family members from other towns and places. Like me, I invited some of my high school classmates because my mom told me to invite them in the morning. My mother told me not to invite friends because we don't know if we would be having foods for visitors. But in a rush, we had so I decided to ask them to come. I'm sorry to my college friends, but I really didn't know that we would be having a celebration at our house.

It was a fun fiesta. A lot of stalls have been selling their products and good for a month already in the town plaza as I will show in the succeeding photos. But as I have said earlier, many things would be happening tomorrow actually because it is sunday. It was a very tiring day so I haven't got the effort to place watermarks below so If ever you want to use some of the photos, just please ask me, OK? Thanks!
Hope you guys would enjoy my shots below!

Stalls that lined up in front of the Town Plaza selling different goods and delicacies from other towns and provinces.

Some of the native delicacies sold in the stalls. The yellow one in the bottom part of the shot is called suman. These are made from glutinnous rice, lihia, and various sweet spices that gave it's blandly sweet flavor. It is very nice to eat dipped in white sugar! Then the brown ones are called kalamay. These are sticky snacks that are made from glutinous rice, grated coconut, margarine, brown sugar and a small amount of peanut butter and vanilla extract. Very yummy! Then there are roasted cashews, barquillos, coco jam and many more. I always screw up on food shots but I hope I did good on this one!

Your picture and description of the native delicacies got my mouth watering — parang hindi ko alam ang lasa 'no. Hehehe.

Did you also have a pet blessing? Quite a few places here had one today because of the feast day.
