Taste My Life # 06 : 3rd Litratong Pinoy EB @ Aliwan Festival

My second Eye Ball
of the Lifetime and to Litratong Pinoy

Yes it's my second time to attend an eyeball(EB) meeting of a certain group. Both EBs are EBs of Litratong Pinoy. Its their 3rd EB: the first one, im not yet part of the group; the second EB, im still not part of the group but my sister is and she needs a butler =)) so i joined, it was intramuros; and now the 3rd time it's in CCP complex for the Aliwan Festival last 25 April 2009


I was reluctant to attend since nobody will attend the house that time. but i still got up to be there after my house chores. when me & sib ShutterHappyJen got some water & batteries on a convenience store, rain poured so hard that made us hesitant to go. after the rains, we decided to go on anyway, boarded the bus, then LRT then we met the group.

Trigger happiness at the Aliwan Festival

We headed to Aliw Theater to see the Aliwan Festival. the Floats are parked on the Parking area of Star City. we captured every floats and its delegates. since we are all busy taking shots, the group scattered out to capture the best angles we can find. after the floats and its people, we headed to the PICC parking area where street dance competitors practice their moves.

every contingent are then preparing for the float parade thus we positioned next to Star City entrance gate to capture the parade.
