Kite Flying Festival

Spongebob and ‘Mulawin’ Inspired Designs Win Kite Flying Festival

By: MARJORIE DURAN

Yes, spongebob can fly in the air only that it is made of paper and stick. It turns out as it was smoothly maneuvered aerially by a 10-year-old boy who brought home the award in the non-professional category of a kite flying competition organized by Camella in Taguig last May 26.

Fifth grader Angelito Pascua won the grand prize sweeping off 19 other brightly-colored big kites, he learned flying kite when he was eight but admitted having joined the competition for the first time.

There is also no stopping Edwin Penaranda for bringing home the grand prize in the professional category with his ‘mulawin’ inspired kite who contended against almost fifteen kites, winning for him can be sweeter the seventh time around.

Edwin shared kite flying is not easy as people see it because it requires great balancing in the air but said: “Masarap magpalipad ng saranggola, nakakawala ng problema at stress sa katawan”.

“My kite flying interest was influenced by my grandparents, I started doing my kite using ‘banana Q’ sticks and broom, sometimes I also used parts of broken umbrella,” Penaranda said.

Everyone’s mood was set as the afternoon sky was decorated with different kites designed as butterfly, dragonfly, unicorn, chicken, airplane including some known characters like Tinkerbell and angry bird. Creations also included the local mythical creature ‘manananggal’ but the one which shines the brightest was the dragon, awarded as the most beautiful kite.

Workshop

As the event’s objectives are to unite families and foster camaraderie, children were given the chance to create their own kite with their parents. Materials were given free, composing of adhesive, crayons and papers with a layout of different animal designs like butterfly, birds and chicken.

“This is the best form of recreation for children instead of playing computer games because the air is free and healthy, kite flying festival and workshop should be conducted yearly,” said Virgie Cristobal, Kite Flying Coordinator and a two-time Champion in the Kite Flying Festival-Professional Category.

Virgie shared that kite making is very affordable and can be done with less effort, “One minute is enough in creating the kite and it can be done alone.”

Introducing the basic kite making to children did not end it all; the sky was once again painted with colorful animal figures as the kids experienced flying their own-made kites in the air after the competition.

“It’s more Fun-tastic in Subic, Philipppines”

It was 12 midnight but everyone’s eyes was still wide open; the usual busy night street had yet become busier, flooded with excited people preparing and midnight almost felt like noon although the sun was constantly kept hidden.  I along with my mom, boyfriend and friend were the few of those who planned to join the whole barangay’s outing where every person was invited to join. It sounds awkward at first to join hundreds of people whom not everyone was a close friend but I insisted to come, it will be a once in a lifetime experience, a unique one, another different journey—One part of exploring the adventurous world and it was my first time to join a barangay outing.

Schedule:

1 a.m.: assembly time

2:30 a.m.: departure

6 a.m.: arrival at Olongapo, Subic- Philippines.

Bus ExperienceDays before the outing, I eavesdropped. I heard that the bus we will be using to reach Subic will be the ordinary bus, imagine a 36 degrees celcius temperature combined with no-aircon bus,.  After seeing the bus with my naked eyes, I had proven the hearsay was right, it was ordinary, it looks old and I assumed that we might be like sardines inside placed in an oven to be toasted. People assembled outside at 1 a.m., everyone hurried as they wanted to be the first to ride. There’s a seating capacity and a seat number for everyone however the seat was not enough for all the passengers making the vehicle very crowded because many people decided to join almost the last-minute, and include one of my friend, Melissa and my boyfriend, Jonas to that.

Our crowded situation, but we’re settled

The Arrival

It was after sunrise– The air was crisp, fresh and the heat was good when we arrived in Subic.

 

 After reaching the place, I and my friend Melisa were disappointed because people were disorder, we can’t even find the cottage where we should stay. People had their own faction and for a minute, we were like an outcast and marginalized but not after we found our own cottage. The first  hour was boring until we decided to explore and walk until we reached the isolated end, it was peaceful, awesome and fantastic. The water was clear, place was clean, It made us happy. We took pictures of ourselves, we have had our own photo shoot.

Drink till’ you drop

 After the photo shoot, it’s another time for session and alcohol. one Mojitos Tequila partnered with calamansi juice and three bottle of gin mixed with brown coffee and melon juice. Before all the bottles were finished, we just can’t stop laughing and that was an indication of the alcohol’s effect. It was a fun-filled moment, I almost don’t want that to end.

While Drinking (Somehow sober):

Alcohol started to influence us: We started to made fun of other people
