Backyard Urchins and Jordi at Buglasan

Louie and Jordi decided I needed help today because it's Rose's day off. Not wanting to do the dishes, they offered to water the garden. Kids, water, garden... By the time I checked, they looked like this:

Tonight, Jordi's school (that's him in the left foreground waving a Chinese lantern) presented several Chinese dances at the Tayada sa Buglasan. The Tayada is a weekly cable tv program that features the talents of schools and groups here. The Buglasan, on the other hand, is Oriental Negros's version of a provincial "festival of festivals". The towns and cities bring their respective festivals to the capital and compete for prizes in street dancing, "showdown", booth-making, etc. Oh, and not to forget the ubiquitous singing, dancing contests and the "Little Miss Buglasan" and "Little Master Buglasan"! :-)
