It's Sinulog week, Viva! When it comes to Sinulog Festival, Cebuanos are known to be very hospitable to every tourist who are visiting the beautiful island, Cebu. That's why some love to stay for good here in our city. Millions (allow me to exaggerate) of Visitors from different Regions and Countries will come and celebrate the mother of all festivals in the Country, the Sinulog 2018! Aside from the annual Sinulog devotion, culture and tradition, Cebu is known on staging the best outdoor parties in the country. And on Saturday, the party never stops! Put your hands in the air as Plus63 Music And Arts Festival Brings the Dutch Duo, Showtek!

3. DATE and TIME - January 20, 2018 (Saturday) Party starts at 7PM till late.


4. ARTISTS - Last year, they staged Steve Aoki. On weekend, they will bring Dutch Duo, Showtek. If you're a first-time party goer, you would ask, "Who are they?" According to Wikipedia, Showtek is a Dutch electronic dance music duo consisting of two brothers, Sjoerd Janssen (born April 6, 1984) and Wouter Janssen (born August 30, 1982).[2] The duo regularly manages to reach the top of multiple music charts and work with artists such as Tiësto, Chris Brown and David Guetta.

  • Extra clothes
  • Waterproof pouch for your gadgets and money

7. DONT'S? - Don't bring anything bad including illegal drugs and bad vibes to the event. Good vibes only and let's party all night!

8. SHARE ONLINE! - I bet you knew it already! When in Cebu, Sun is faster and amazing! It is very reliable in terms of text, call and of course, data connection. And since Sinulog Festival is a week full of celebrations, I recommend registering to a 7 days of 1GB data connection. To register, text bdata70 to 247 for just PHP 70.00. This includes 1GB open access data, 30 minutes calls to Sun and Unlimited texts to all networks.

Before you proceed, here's an important Note: This article is all about the hugot pics which are trending on Facebook and this is not to humiliate the essence of Sinulog Festival. This is solely for entertainment only.

ABOUT SINULOG

During this festive week, different kinds of traditions and activities are being observed. Most Tourists reserve seats at the Grand Parade on the third Sunday of January. Some Locals chose to attend the Fluvial Parade which is happening on a Saturday. This Fluvial Procession is a very important tradition of Cebuanos as our dear Sto. Nino will be carried via Pumpboats decorated with flowers from Mandaue City to Cebu City. On the same day, Devotees will solemnly celebrate a long hour of the procession in the afternoon in the main street of Cebu City.

KUSOG ANG SUN SA CEBU

In this era, millennials could not enjoy any celebrations without being connected and shared the happenings online. As everybody knows, Sun Cellular is very strong here in Cebu. I can attest that as I've been using Sun since it was born. And I ain't kidding! Good thing, Sun SIM is already LTE-Ready which means fast internet surfing and social media postings during Sinulog! Speaking of Social Media, have you heard of Carl Dave Black Ang's Types of People During Sinulog or "Mga Klase Sa Tao Sa Sinulog"



MGA KLASE NA TAO SA SINULOG

Have you heard of HUGOTraphy? It composes of HUGOT and PHOTOGRAPHY. It's a kind of photography but with some quotes or words on it. These words are drawn from emotions of people that concerns their love life, family, friends or even enemies. Now, look at these type of People during Sinulog made by Carl, owner of HUGOTraphy, which is currently trending on Facebook.
