The award-winning DSS Fireworks of Dumaguete City bagged the grand prize in the recently concluded 1st Cagayan de Oro Fireworks Competition (Pyrolympics) held at the Gran Via Lot (beside SM City CDO). DSS Fireworks, a four-time grand champion of Buglasan Festival in San Carlos, also got the top prize during the Sinulog Festival 2009 fireworks contest.
Mindanaoan was among the thousands of people who trooped to the Gran Via Lot last August 29, 2009 to witness the fireworks display. I went with my brother Bon, who fortunately brought his motorcycle. You see, that event caused very heavy traffic at the Pueblo de Oro area (and I mean really, really heavy traffic) but because we were aboard a motorcycle, we were able to avoid the traffic bottleneck/congestion.
That night was a good one al...

Hi everyone! Hi to all readers of Mindanaoan! :) Just a quick blog entry. My brother Bon, along with other Mindanaoan artists, will hold a public doodling event today, August 26, 2009, in front of Spruce, Limketkai Mall, Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao. This is one "vandalism but with consent" event you might not want to miss! :) The artists will doodle (a form of sketching) for two days and the finished product will be showcased at Spruce. Mindanaoan will be among those who will take photos and who will cheer the artists on, of course! :)
So if you want to witness talented artists from Mindanao in action, please don't hesitate to visit Spruce today and tomorrow. Spruce will also display limited edition Havaianas and will also hold a promo for Happy Feet products. Spruce is a popular stor...
