Kaamulan 2015 Map of Activities

Thank you BukidnonOnline for sharing this valuable information.  It's very helpful.

If like me you're heading to Malaybalay for the Kaamulan 2015 Festival, it is very important to know when and where to go for the particular activities that you're interested in.  I am a regular Kaamulan visitor and I know my way about.  However, I must admit the change of some venues for the major events this year are worth noting!

Dressed for Work The Bukidnon Way

These ladies are on their way to work.  A pretty sight you must agree!

Today for the very first time in Bukidnon history, LGU employees came to work dressed in tribal Bukidnon attire (which is normally reserved only for special occasions like the Kaamulan, tribal weddings and formal affairs).  This is in compliance to Governor Zubiri’s memorandum that they dress accordingly for assembly every 1
st Monday of the month.

Here they are again inside their respective offices.

Today the streets of Talakag burst with bold colours of red, white, black and some yellows, purples and greens.  What a wonderful way of showcasing and promoting the Bukidnon culture!

I couldn't help but admire this anklet worn by one of the ladies.
Note her necklace made with old silver coins.
